Noel was born and raised in Liberty Hill, Texas. When he was a kid, he would spend countless hours in the woods hunting with his father. This began his passion for wildlife, which led to his decision to peruse a career in the field. Noel graduated from Texas Tech University with a degree in Natural Resource Management, with an emphasis in wildlife biology. As a ranch hand and later ranch manager of exotic game ranches around the state, he would care for exotic hoof stock such as Kudu, Sable, and Axis.
His love for husbandry though came from caring for whitetail deer fawns. This passion for the husbandry side of the animal field was elevated when he would help his wife care for exotics wildlife at her facilities as well. Conservation to Noel means the preservation of wildlife for generations to come. He hopes to do his part so that one day his children can partake in enjoying these magnificent creatures. In his free time, Noel likes to watch sports and enjoy the outdoors with family and friends.
