Westin Yancey | Modern Outdoor Media

Growing up I always had a strong passion for the outdoors. My father was an outdoorsman and we would fish “Like Father, Like Son, Bass Fishing Tournaments” on the weekends. I would put on my upland bird vest and walk up to a wooded area near my neighborhood and hunt Squirrels and birds with my pellet gun. You remember the type, you pumped them so many times, that the final pump had to be pushed down using all of your body weight on top of your leg. I would collect patches that I found at tournaments and shows and have my mother put them on my fishing shirt.

Now I am blessed enough to work in the outdoor industry as a brand manager for Undercover Truck Bed Covers. Building an outdoor division to show how useful out truck bed covers are for the outdoorsman. During the last 4 years, I have grown and managed many brands across the web. Modern Outdoor Sportsman, Bass Fishing Nation, and Undercover Sportsman are a few of my main platforms. It has brought me great fulfillment and has allowed me to cross pass with many outdoorsmen I now call friends. But I wanted to do something more…

I want to share my Vision and my Passion with men and women who aspire to build a career in the outdoor industry. Because regardless of what someone might say, it is possible. One thing I have learned by managing these platforms. Is that, there are thousands of young men and women who aspire to “Get Sponsored” by outdoor companies. But many of them do not know a good way of going about this. I aim to help.
