Steve Snell lives in Starkville, MS, with his wife, 3 sons, 1 daughter, and 18 hunting dogs. He graduated from Mississippi State University in 1992 with a degree in General Business Administration. Steve and his brother, Rob, own and operate Gun Dog Supply, a hunting dog training supply business founded in 1972 by their parents, Anne & Warner Snell.
Steve grew up in Mississippi surrounded by bird dogs and quail hunting. He saw first-hand, how the loss of habitat decimated wild bird populations across the Southeast in the 1970s and 80s.
While his father was very active in the attempts to rebuild habitat on public land, they eventually started quail hunting in Texas in the 1990s. This is where Steve became interested in habitat management of Texas ranches for the mutual benefit of both cattle and wild birds. Steve is a graduate of the 2015 Quail Masters program.
Steve hunts as much as he can during quail season, and travels the country with his 14 pointers.
