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.
Board President Janet Stambaugh is a Wyoming native, moving to Cody in her last two years of high school. One thing people may be surprised to know about Janet is she was a majorette. She even did cartwheels all the way down main street in the 4th of July parades! Janet rode the school bus with her sweetheart, Grant. They have been a hunting team for deer, elk, and sheep since. Janet and Grant operated the outfitting business for the Majo Ranch and did 18 mile horseback rides (Janet did her share of pulling a pack string) up the South Fork every Fall for around 30 days. Now "officially" retired, she takes great pride in helping to raise funds for WyO. She loves what the all volunteer organization does for our wildlife, community, and youth.
Board Member Grant Stambaugh is a fifth generation Cody native. There are seven Stambaugh generations with his son and grandson. Grant is retired, but has been a mechanic and built "tractor pulling" motors for himself and others. He was the high points champion puller in Canada with his Evil Atti2d, 2 wheel drive pulling truck. He has been a ranch manager and outfitter and still loves the outdoors and mentoring his grandchildren and First Hunt Foundation-Wyoming kids.
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.
Spending most of his life in northwestern Wyoming, Board Member Shawn Chouinard is an avid outdoorsman. Any time spent fishing or hunting is what he prefers. Shawn and his wife, Kelli, live in Powell. When given the choice, bird hunting is his first pick. Having grown up learning to hunt and fish from his father and grandfather, he has memories all over the Big Horn Basin of various hunting trips.
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.
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.
