Tony Vandemore

Pro Staff Hunter

Tony hails from northwest Illinois where his father and uncle started taking him to the hunting blind when he was still a toddler. He spent his youth in the outdoors hunting waterfowl, turkey and deer, as well as fishing.
Tony’s love of hunting continued as he attended Truman State University in Kirksville, Missouri. There he played baseball and was eventually drafted by the San Diego Padres. But his love of the outdoors won out and after two years in the Padres’ farm system, Tony returned to Missouri to build a life around hunting waterfowl.
Tony is now co-owner and operator of Habitat Flats, the No. 1 waterfowl lodge network in North America with locations in Missouri, Kansas, Saskatchewan and Arkansas. He spends 12 months a year managing waterfowl habitat and sharing his love of hunting with clients from all over the world. In addition, Tony is the Lead Waterfowl Ambassador for Under Armour Hunt. He is also a waterfowl photographer. With a family life built around conservation and love of our outdoor heritage, Tony, his wife, Kate, and daughter, Vivian, now live in Missouri where habitat management and hunting seasons define and drive each part of their year.
