When you talk about someone that has knowledge, skill and has successfully taken over 60 wild whitetails in his career you most likely will hear the name Pat Reeve. At the age of six he started hunting with his father Keith. His dad’s love for whitetail deer hunting soon rubbed off on him and now some thirty years later his love for hunting is even stronger than what it was when he first started. His professional career in the outdoor industry really began kind of by mistake or should I say “he lucked into it.” Pat was working as a whitetail guide for Tom Indrebo at Bluff Country Outfitters located in Buffalo County, Wisconsin. Through the connections at BCO he met many people already in the hunting industry. Gene Bidespacher who was the current producer for Buckmasters TV urged him to take his passion and hobby of photography to the next level and start running a video camera. One year later, he stepped away from guiding and went to work as a freelance videographer for both Tom Miranda and Hunters Specialties. Eventually after lots of hard work and determination he landed a full time field producer/pro-staff position with Hunter’s Specialties located in Cedar Rapids, Iowa. Working at H.S. was definitely a dream job for Pat and for five years he enjoyed filming and learned a lot from pro’s; Eddie Salter, Alex Rutledge, Matt Morrett, Bob Folkrod, Stan Potts, Greg Miller and the rest of the H.S. crew. During his time at H.S., he was lucky enough to film the largest non-typical ever to be harvested on professional video. After working for several years he resigned and decided he wanted to take his skills to a higher level and become more included in the pursuit for whitetail deer. His next big career break came when he was hired to produce and co-host North American Whitetail Television. The show quickly became popular and was nominated and won several awards. After working two years for NAWT, he started his own television show, "Driven TV", which explains his passion for hunting and specifically love for whitetails. After putting over 50 Pope and Young bucks on the wall, three which gross Boone, Pat thought his hunting career was going well until his great accomplishment yet which was shooting the largest typical ever taken by hunter on professional video scoring 200” Boone and Crockett. He said “I don’t know if I will ever top that but I know I will have fun trying!” If you were to ask him the downfall to his occupation, he would say being away from his four wonderful children; Olivia, Cole, Carson and Isabel. The upside is that they are all looking forward to getting involved and going hunting with their dad in the future. This year he’s enjoying time afield with girlfriend and successful hunter Nicole Jones. One thing he has learned so far on his journey is that everyday is a new day and life throws you curve balls. Defeat and failure is inevitable but its how you deal with it, which is really what determines success. He can’t wait to get a chance at the next big buck that comes down the trail but says, “Good Hunting and remember to stay “Driven”!
