I am a lifelong hunter who enjoys all aspects of hunting with an emphasis on Predator control as a means to improve Arizona’s big game species.  Long range rifle and pistol shooting, archery and reloading are also favorite past times. 


Mark Steinmann

Vice President


I come from a long line of hunters and outdoor enthusiasts who value the North American Model of Wildlife Conservation. My predator hunting obsession started in 2011 and my Grandpa and Uncle came to PVCI in the 60's which led me to get involved. I am a family man and also enjoy fishing and target shooting.

 I have been a member of PVCI since 2006, and became recording secretary shortly after joining. I haven't been as active in the hunting side of things, but I have enjoyed educating people, and especially kids, not only on hunting, but also the biology and behavior of the animals we encounter. I also enjoy helping out at the various camps and events put on by other member organizations through HAHWG. 


James Strang

Past President April 2017-2019



I started out as an Archery hunter. While taking my daughter through the Hunter Safety course I was introduced to PVCI & Predator Calling. It has taught me so much about the need for Game Management & Conservation for all species of animals.

 As a lover of all things wild, the adventurer within me keeps driving me to chase the most elusive game in Arizona in some of the most rugged places.

 The confidence,skill and knowledge I've gained over the years in the club is unmatched. It's now my time to help the next group of young hunters find their place in the wild

Have always just enjoyed being in the outdoors and having the camaraderie and fellowship with other hunters. Enjoy shooting pistols, shotgun and short and long range rifles. The PVCI is a environmental arm for furthering the opportunities of hunting and encouraging old and young to participate, that's why I like being a part of it!

DVPH Coordinator

 Co Hunt Chairman



I have been an Arizona resident since 1981.  I have hunted multiple big game species.  Although our club emphasizes conservation through the hunting of predators, our club provides an opportunity to learn more about hunting from the various speakers at our monthly club meetings. 

PVCI has given me the opportunity to give  back to our service members through our Disabled Veteran Predator hunts. I enjoy promoting our club at various events and mentoring adults and kids how to hunt predators at our club's Ray Evridge/George Knox Boot Camp.  I also assist in teaching

kids gun safety and shooting small caliber rifles


Nathan Steinmann

Co Hunt Chairman


 My family has always regularly enjoyed the outdoors. I have loved fishing since my grandfather and father took me out as young as 5 years old. I began hunting big game after completing the Arizona Hunter’s Safety Course at the age of 14. My brother Mark and I doubled on Mule Deer bucks in Southern Arizona on our first hunt! We harvested them within 2 seconds of each other! I began learning how to effectively hunt predators in 2015 and joined PVCI in 2016. The wealth of knowledge that is shared here has easily shortened my learning curve by 5 years! I recently started learning how to put up fur for sale. I passionately defend the application of the North American Model of Wildlife Conservation because I want to be able to pass on the heritage of hunting to my kids and grandkids one day. I’m easy to talk to and enjoy hearing and sharing stories of anything outdoors. Come introduce yourself to me at the next club meeting!
