Trophy Taker Staff
Trophy Taker's Staff - Leading the way on the line and in the field.



Dan Evans
When I designed the first Trophy Taker product, the original fall-away arrow rest, I was simply trying to come up with a product (for myself) that would out perform anything on the market. At that time I didn't realize Trophy Taker would become one of the companies that would set the standard in the archery industry.

I still design most of Trophy Taker's products, and spend as much time as possible testing them in the field each year. Elk hunting is my passion. I usually spend 40-60 days each year hunting elk with my bow. Having quality accessories on my bow is very important to me, and I'm confident that you will be pleased with the Trophy Taker products you decide to use this year!

I pride myself on the products that we offer, and stand behind my signature statement:

"I believe in the products we sell, if I wouldn't use it we won't sell it."

Thanks for your interest in Trophy Taker products! Good luck this year.

Sincerely,

Dan Evans
