Matt Ortman

Matt still lives in the town he was born and raised in, a small town in Illinois.  Matt started hunting a little later than some (age 22).  However, he has always been an avid outdoors man and fisherman.  He feels fortunate to work with the RTG team and is working on his videography and photography skills (slowly).  Matt has never shot Whitetail or large game using a gun. 

Matt can also teach you how to fly, as he is a flight instructor and professional pilot.  He is passionate about all things aviation.  He enjoys spending time with his family and daughter (Cydnee) who is 10.  His daughter enjoys flights with dad.  Matt is working on getting her excited about hunting and hoping she joins him in hunting one day.

Matt's weaknesses include: fall days, hard candy, group games or activities (extreme competitiveness), his pink tutu collection, action flicks, days on the lake, mountain biking or downhill skiing - in no particular order.
