Bryan Dirr - Owner/Guide

I have been hunting for over 25 years and has 13 years of guiding experience, and have attended a professional guide school. I graduated with a degree in Environmental Studies that has helped me analyze properties on another level.  With an addiction to trail cameras, you can be sure you will know every deer in your hunting area.  I am eager to find those big bucks and formulate a plan for putting them in front of you.

Anthony Osbourne - Guide

Anthony provides a vital role in the success of Whitetail Crossing.  For several years now, he has been able to learn from the master (Bryan) when it comes to tree stand locations, blind setup, and overall strategies.  He knows the perfectionist that I am when it comes to setups and its good to see him taking the bull by the horns.  He loves being on the farms and knows them like the back of his hand.  He is a client favorite and goes by the nickname "Amigo".

Kacey

Kacey has been a part of the Whitetail Crossing for a long time now.  He is one the most well prepared guides we have.  Always has a knife ready, and on can fill your day with some crazy stories from his hunting and fishing trips in Tennessee.  He's a great guy and will do whatever he has to to get you on a good buck.

Anthony is one of the best taxidermists that I have been lucky enough to meet.  Best part is, he wanted to help out so we hired him on for part of the year.  Many of our clients will actually leave their deer here with him to have it mounted and waiting on them when they return for their next hunt.  His dedication to the hunter is what makes him a great guide.  Don't let the pictures fool you, he is always  willing to help and go the extra mile to make sure his hunters are happy, during and after hunt.

Ryan is one of a kind.  I first met Ryan in 2017, when he came out on a 5 day bow hunt in mid October.  He hunted hard, and trusted us to put him on a good buck.  After just 2 days he was able to connect on a great buck.  After that point, he was the hardest working guy in camp, even though he was just a client, he wanted to help put stands up and put corn out for the youth hunters that were coming in the following weekend.  At that point I knew, we needed him here more often.  Back home he's a fire fighter and while he's here, you can rest assured you'll be safe and taken care of.  Its nice to have a guy who knows how to run a business and deal with people on a daily basis.  Looking forward to many years of handwork coming from this guy.

Jason and I have been friends since we first opened the doors.  When he gets a chance to come down whether it's to hangout or help out, there's not better guy to have around.  Jason always offers to target our management bucks or the bucks nobody wants to burn a tag on.  He has killed some old and unique deer here over the years.  Now, I convinced him to come down to help guide and the clients love him. Having been all over a lot of my farms, gives him inside knowledge to the farms and the ability to put you in the right stand at the right time.

Matt Tipton - Guide

Matt has been bringing his son down for the past few years for some doe patrol, teaching him the importance of deer hunting and showing him its not just about antlers, its about feeding the family.  Another great guy to have in campo and will go to the ends of the earth to make sure your stay with us is as comfortable as possible.  Unfortunately he doesn't know how to use a vacuum, but that's not your problem, that's mine.

Andrew

Andrew Kramer - Guide

Andrew is recovering from Tommy John Surgery and will most likely be taking the season off from helping out as he continues his rehab.  We hope he can return later this season.  Good luck bro!
