Born in Springfield, Missouri, Clay O’Dell grew up loving to bow hunt and has done so ever since, enjoying the challenges that come along with it. His parents raised him with standards that have stuck with him his entire life: to treat others as you’d want to be treated, and to work hard in order to achieve your goals.
While earning his Bachelor’s in Agricultural Business from Missouri State University, Clay worked as a wildlife technician for renowned deer biologist Dr. Grant Woods (GrowingDeer.tv) and later interned with a local bank, assisting in the agricultural lending department. Following his calling to work in the outdoors, Clay worked as a land manager and field producer with GrowingDeer.tv, taking on different roles, anything from filming hunts and web shows to managing a 2,400-acre wildlife mecca in Southern Missouri. In this position, he traveled across the country, assisting in designing and implementing habitat management plans for 100+ properties.
Today, Clay combines that experience with his knowledge of land and agriculture to help clients achieve their dreams, using his professionalism, strong work ethic, and dedication to the craft. When he’s not working, Clay enjoys hunting deer, turkey and waterfowl, as well as chasing white bass and crappie. He knows what it takes to have a great hunting property as well as a profitable farm, and understands the importance and value these properties hold for landowners and their communities.
