Wyoming Outdoorsmen Officers and Board of Directors
Wyoming Outdoorsmen (WyO) consists of a broad-based coalition of sportsmen and sportswomen established to promote the improvement of hunting, fishing, trapping, quality habitat programs and other outdoor experiences for youth and family involvement.
Your WyO Officers and Board of Directors are honored to serve. Click on each photo to learn more about the Director.
Living in Wyoming for 22 years, Board Member Robert “Bobby” Kondash would rather spend more time outside than inside. There is no distance too far to travel for Bobby to find a good and fun hunt. He enjoys the sport and sharing the experiences with other hunters. Bobby and his fiancé Liz live outside of Cody. His most prized hunt is for Big Horn Sheep.
After a 40-year career as a fisheries biologist and supervisor, Board Member Tim Barry was fortunate enough to retire to one of the absolute best places in the lower 48 states, Cody, WY. He is a life-long outdoorsman and pursued whitetail and mule deer, elk, antelope, black bear, moose, turkeys, and a variety of upland game, in several states and Canadian provinces. Tim is also an avid angler and an NRA firearms Instructor for 25+ years. He was a Senior Hunter Safety Instructor for 20 years with the State of CT, Wildlife Division and for the past 3.5 years a Hunter Safety Instructor with WY G & G. Tim is a Hunt Mentor for the WyO sponsored Wood River Deer and Turkey First Hunt program with First Hunt for the last 3 years.
Board Member Kristie Thompson grew up in WI and after 12 years of serving our country in the US Coast Guard she moved to Cody, WY. She works in land management and is often gone on wildland fires throughout the summer. Kristie and her husband Brad live outside of Cody and are avid hunters, hikers, mountain bikers, and adventure-loving outdoorsmen always looking for a new challenge.
Amanda Bayles moved from Georgia to Wyoming in 1998. She loves the outdoors and has a degree in Range Mangement. She would like to be able to help in conservation, so that we have opportunities for the future and for our youth to hunt and fish so they can enjoy nature. Amanda went on her first hunt with WyO and First Hunt Foundation for Turkey and Deer. Amanda said these programs are important for youth and adults who have never learned to hunt, she believes by learning and implementing good hunting practices she can provide food for herself and family as well as helping with conservation.
Renae Gordon is excited to be a WyO Board Member. As a 17 year citizen of Cody, she believes in all that Wyoming Outdoorsman does to support our way of life through conservation, support of youth in the outdoors, teaching and introducing people to the outdoor lifestyle. In addition to serving on the Wy O board, Renae is the Wyoming Representative for the Scholastic Clay Target Program and an assistant coach for the local SCTP shooting team, the Cody Clay Crushers.
