Jeff Leahy


Fed up with the difficulty of planning hunting trips, Jeff Leahy crafted the idea for Sportsmen America in a small town somewhere in southwestern North Dakota while pheasant hunting with his father. Jeff realized the need for accessing services and supplies in unknown places – triggering memories of all the “Self-Guided” journeys he had embarked upon over the past 25 years. The concept of a user-friendly index that would help connect Sportsmen to supplies and resources was born. Jeff has explored many corners of the west, starting in his home state of Minnesota and ending it Montana. Along the way, his desire to work in the outdoor industry has fueled the launch of Sportsmen America.
