About Valley Outdoorsmen
Our mission is to offer the
outdoorsmen and women of the California Central Valley with a website
that is geared towards their needs. This site will offer one stop
information on hunting and fishing in the Central Valley as well as
offering a launch pad to sites covering all aspects of hunting, fishing
and the outdoors.
Although our main area of
focus will be the Central Valley, we will not limit our information to
only that. We will offer information and links to cover all of your
hunting and fishing needs.
This site is owned and
operated by Ron Wilson, of Modesto, CA and Tim Paes, of Turlock, CA. Ron
is a Member of the Outdoor Writers Association of America and Outdoor
Writers of California. He retired as an Outdoor columnist from the
Modesto Bee Newspaper, where he had written thousands of articles that
appeared in print and online from 1986 to 2002. Ron's love of hunting
and fishing as well as writing led him to take his career in a new
direction and partner with Tim to start
this website. Tim has been an outdoor enthusiast all his life, spending
much of his youth hunting and fishing. He now spends most of his free
time competing as a tournament black bass fisherman. He also
brings with him a knowledge of websites and the internet as well as a
writer of several articles that have appeared online and in print.
With the growth of the internet, we envision a time
where reading the
news online will become mainstream. Our goal is to be there when that
happens. We plan to offer you news that is both insightful and educating
as well as stories that inform and entertain you.
an outdoor writer, Ron spent several years building contacts around the
country. With this knowledge base and our continual scanning of the
information super highway, you will benefit from a website that is
continually adding information and news.
