Matt Bordenkircher - founder and owner

"My vision was to take my passion for whitetails and create a "one stop shop" for whitetail hunters. Provide guiding, outfitting, and taxidermy in one place. Growing up in the midwest on a large family owned farm allowed me to start hunting at an early age. I saw my dad harvest one of the biggest typicals in the state for that year at 6 years old, then i was hooked. That deer is actually the buck I used for the WSW logo. After 10 plus years of taxidermy, property and herd management, and guiding, its all taken shape into what it is today. My goal is to provide the highest quality I can, in every aspect of hunting. That includes a large emphasis on age structure,  genetics, and property management to make sure anyone involved has a high quality whitetail experience." -Matt Bordenkircher
