Rhino’s Pro Staff

Cory Kruse

Cory grew up in the woods. “Hunting has been in my blood from past generations. I always wanted to be outside hunting something. With that, you always want to hit what you shoot at, right? So I always had a BB gun, .22, or a shotgun in my hands. I would constantly practice shooting anything from coke cans, pinecones, all the way to my mom’s pots and pans.”

Since then, his Dad (David Reaves) and Dan Carlisle have taught him to move a shotgun with the best of them for the past 15 years.
