TEAM TROPHY ROCK

Gene Price

Gene Price

Public Relations/Marketing

Gene manages public and industry relations for Trophy Rock, along with sales in Canada.
Gene was raised in Ohio's farming country and spent most of his childhood outdoors, watching giant midwest whitetail deer. He harvested his first buck when he was nine years old, and his passion for hunting grew until he eventually made a career in the hunting industry.
Gene still lives in the Ohio countryside with his family, who love to hunt almost as much as he does. Gene says, ``The best days hunting are the ones spent creating unforgettable memories with my wife or kids,`` Working with Trophy Rock gives him the opportunity to help hunters everywhere create those memories for themselves.

Todd Nemelka

Todd Nemelka

Midwest Sales/Marketing

Todd manages sales in the Midwest. As a boy, Todd spent a lot of time hunting and fishing with his Dad and developed a real love for the mountains. He and his wife live in Heber City, Utah, with their five kids, and he loves sharing his many hunting adventures with his sons. Many of Todd’s happiest moments have been with his family enjoying the outdoors.
Even though Todd resides in the West, he has a passion for whitetail hunting. He says there is nothing better than sitting in a tree stand watching the woods come alive. Todd really enjoyed participating in the QDMA stewardship course on whitetail management (level one).

Joe Anderson

Joe Anderson

Southeast Sales

Joe manages sales in the South. He is also the grandfather of the Trophy Rock movement. He first saw the funny looking rock around 1995 while archery hunting for mule deer. Curious as to how whitetails would react to it, he brought some back to Tennessee. The question was soon answered by the immediate attraction to it by the local herd in Williamson County.
After a couple years using borrowed rocks he researched the rock and the mine it came from. It was then he found that it contained many valuable minerals that would assist in overall animal health and therefore antler growth. The next step was to start sharing Trophy Rock with other hunters in the area. Originally through word of mouth only, Trophy Rock has now expanded nationwide. He and his wife Janie reside in western Kentucky where he purchased some land and has since turned it into great deer habitat. Joe harvested this bull elk in Utah with his muzzleloader. Now at the top of his bucket list is a bull with his bow. Stay tuned!

As a boy Duke grew up on a river bottom farm hunting pheasants, ducks and mule deer. He and his wife have since built their home on the same family farm in Aurora, Utah and are raising two children.

Blake Butler

Blake Butler

Big Box Chains/Western Sales

Blake manages the large box store accounts and handles sales inquiries in the West. He's been hunting since he got his first BB gun, and developed a talent for elk calling when he was still a young boy. These days he's mastered calls for all kinds of big game, so if you're hiking out West you never really know if you're hearing an elk bugle or if it's just Blake.
Blake's wife and four kids each own a bow and love shooting together at their home in Aurora, Utah. One of Blake's favorite hunts ended with his wife harvesting a huge 6 point elk, with Blake right over her shoulder, calling it in.
