I’m a die-hard elk hunter but love everything that is Western Hunting. My addiction started at a young age when hunting trips were simply riding around with my dad and grandpa looking for blacktail bucks and Roosevelt elk near my hometown of PeEll, Washington. As I grew up my passion and love for the outdoors continued to grow. Eventually my obsession for calling elk, spurred the creation of Phelps Game Calls in 2009. Since then Phelps Game Calls has become recognized as an industry leader in quality elk calls and elk hunting information.
I still reside in the small logging town of PeEll, Washington with my beautiful wife Sondi, son Hunter, and daughter Payton . I can only hope they share in my passion for the pursuit of western big game.

Developing Mental Toughness / Training with Purpose
Kenton is the founder of Train To Hunt and the Train To Hunt Challenge. He was raised in the rugged mountains of North Idaho where he hunted deer, elk and bear. He was a four-sport athlete throughout high school and attended Lewis Clark State College in Lewiston, ID for his undergraduate studies. Kenton played catcher for the Warriors and received his degree in Kinesiology as well as a Teaching certificate for Physical Education (K-12) and Health (6-12). After college Kenton started coaching and teaching when he found his love of helping people over-come physical and mental barriers. He coached football, wrestling, and baseball while going to the University of Idaho where he received his Master’s degree in Sport Psychology. Immediately following graduate school (2003) he began his personal training career and in 2008 he started his own business and became one of the first people to open a Crossfit Gym. It was during a backcountry hunt in 2010 that the idea of training hunters for the demands of their specific hunting style came to him. He launched the Train To Hunt website in 2010 and the Hunter Athlete movement was born. A year later, he launched the Train To Hunt Challenge to give hunters an event to measure how well their training and shooting programs were preparing them for the up and coming season. He loves God, his wife, Heidi, his three children, Jett (8), Ryder and Harper (6) and believes that the most important thing to remember is “People don’t care how much you know, until they know how much you care.”
