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 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

I am a long time hunter started in Ohio on to  Kansas and been in Arizona almost 20 yrs. Have hunted groundhog to elk and now focus on predators. 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!

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!
