Benjamin Roggie

Ben was born and raised on his family’s farm in Carthage, NY. He attended Carthage Central High School where he graduated in 2005. Aftergraduating, he moved to Florida to attend MMI/UTI Technical School. While attending school, he worked full time at Bass Pro Shops and part time trapping and relocating feral hogs. He spent most of his free time pig hunting and fishing while living in Florida. He continued to live in Florida for some time after graduating from UTI before finally moving back to New York in 2008. He decided he didnt enjoy living in a densely populated area and missed the small town life. He currently lives on Pleasent Lake with his wife, Kaelee, whom he married in May of 2012.
His passion has always been for the outdoors. He is a lisenced New York State hunting, fishing, and camping guide and is the owner of Black River ValleyOutfitters, where they specialize in waterfowl and turkey hunts. He is also pro-staffed by Toxic Calls and Hardcore Decoys and had a goose hunt featured on Time Warner Cable Sports this past fall.
When he is at home, he enjoys cooking, and is always looking for new and different ways to cook and prepare wild game and fish.
