Bence Close is the Hunting Lease Director with Hayden Outdoors. Bence grew up on a farm and ranch in the Texas panhandle and continues to actively participate in the operation. He graduated from Colorado State University with a B.S. in Watershed Science and M.S. in Civil Engineering (Groundwater Hydrology), and has enjoyed a successful consulting career in natural resources. Bence has hunted in many parts of North America and South America, as well as Africa. Bence especially enjoys helping youth, women and those with disabilities enjoy the outdoors, and has committed many hours working with conservation organizations and their outreach programs. While he is passionate about all types of hunting, he finds particular pleasure spending time afield with his French Brittany Spaniels pursuing all types of upland game birds. Having spent many years hunting, guiding and as a landowner, Bence appreciates what it takes for both lessors and lessees to have a successful and rewarding experience. Bence’s background in land ownership, business management, land management/reclamation, habitat management, and hunting can greatly assist in leasing your property or finding the hunting opportunities you desire.
