There are STANDARDS & EXPECTATIONS to be met if you're a part of this Team. We will challenge each other in every facet of life.

Our Story

Luke enrolled in an MBA program in Afghanistan but quickly dropped out after receiving his syllabus. He believed the best way to learn business was through hands-on experience.

After his deployment, Luke purchased an embroidery/sewing machine and 100 blank hats. Using PowerPoint to design the first logos, he taught himself embroidery and started selling the first HLE patch hats to friends, family, and a few people online, particularly Caleb.

With the support of Luke's wife & the HLE Team, the HUNT LIFT EAT Brand has flourished into what it is today.

We have ambitious plans for the future and greatly appreciate the daily support from the HUNT LIFT EAT community.

Our Vision & Mission

HUNT LIFT EAT is dedicated to promoting an active outdoor lifestyle centered around training, hunting, and fishing. We aim to educate and inspire individuals to pursue this lifestyle and build a community of outdoor enthusiasts who positively impact the outdoor world.

Our community consists of diverse individuals from various backgrounds. Recognizing the mental health challenges faced by veterans and civilians, we believe that hunting, fishing, and fitness can offer healing and camaraderie to people from all walks of life.

At HUNT LIFT EAT, we take responsibility for protecting our lifestyle through education, outreach, and conservation efforts.

Meet The Staff

Founder & CEO

Luke Cox 

Luke grew up an Army brat, but his family's farms in Grayson County, VA were constants in his life. He spent his childhood camping, fishing, hiking, and hunting. He barely graduated from Virginia Tech in 2013, where he studied History & Appalachian Studies (super useful in the real world). He somehow commissioned as an Army Infantry Officer despite spending most of his time at Hokie House (local watering hole) or the tree stand.

During his second deployment to Afghanistan, he discovered powerlifting and competed in a couple Army competitions. On that deployment his started his MBA but dropped out the first day. Missing hunting season that deployment motivated him to take advantage of every opportunity to be in the woods & lit a spark that has since grown into an obsession. He figured the best way to learn business was to start one, so he launched HLE.

He lives with his beautiful wife Caroline in Colorado Springs, CO. They have a young son, a little girl on the way, and two dogs.

He's 5'7 and thinks he's the boss.

Fulfillment & Design, Women in the Wild

Caroline Cox

Caroline grew up on a horse farm in the foothills of the Smoky Mountains. She spent her early years fishing, camping, and spending most of her free time in the outdoors.

Once Caroline met Luke, she quickly became immersed in the family deer camp. The HLE community has been great to help shorten her hunting learning curve. She's an elementary school teacher by trade, but is staying home with their first child, Barrett. Caroline handles design & merchandising.

She's like a hillbilly Joanna Gaines.

Team Lead, Podcast Co-Host

Carter McKenzie

Carter grew up in North Georgia and from a young age had a passion for fishing and the outdoors. He was introduced to hunting as a freshman in college and had been hooked ever since. He has hunted in many states including black bear in Alaska, mule deer and antelope in Wyoming, ducks in Arkansas and North Dakota and most often, whitetail in his home state. With hunting has come a passion for cooking wild game and sharing it with others.

Carter is a high school history teacher in John’s Creek, Ga where he teaches AP US history, AP Psychology, and World History. He also coaches several sports including cross country, tennis, and swim team. He lives on a small farm with his wife and 1 year old girl where gardening and self sufficiency are important.

Carter is the only dude who brings rosemary to deer camp.

Assistant Team Lead

Derick Bosley

Derick grew up in the backwoods of West Virginia.  During his youth he played football, baseball, and wrestled and spent time learning to hunt from is uncle and grandfather.  After high school, Derick attended Fairmont State University and graduated from the Physical Therapist Assistant program. 

He wanted more and enlisted in the Army. He was assigned as a medic to 3rd Ranger Battalion and spent his entire military career there.  While on his last deployment, Derick decided to give knife making a try when he got back home.  He instantly fell in love with the art and transformed this side project into a full-fledged business. 

Derick is the HLE resident blacksmith/bladesmith, medical SME, and has been a frequent guest on the podcast.

Derick looks like the goat dude from Narnia. 

Assistant Team Lead

Bobby McCready

Bobby is a redneck stuck in New Jersey. He grew up upland and small game hunting and slowly started to learn all aspects of hunting. He may not be the best hunter in the woods, but he sure does take killer selfies sitting in a tree.

Bobby has 3 short hair pointers and spends most of his life catering to them. He also runs a non profit in his home state to help more people get off the couch and into the woods. He used to be a fat bastard. So he woke up one day, changed his lifestyle, and began to get his ass in shape. When you talk to him, your first thought will be “I want whatever this dude's on.” It’s not cocaine, he's just high on living and loves a good laugh. 

​Jersey Shore meets the backwoods. 

Editor & Chief- Articles & Recipes

Josh Reed

I was born and raised in Kentucky and from a young age developed a strong connection to the outdoors in the foothills of the Appalachian Mountains and farmland of the Ohio River bottoms. I grew up a few hundred yards away from the Ohio River and spent most of my time playing sports, fishing, riding four wheelers, camping, and hunting. I credit everything I know to my parents and grandparents who molded me into the man and outdoorsman I am today. I currently live in the outskirts of Ashland, KY with my lovely wife Kristin where I teach Health and Physical Education and coach baseball at Raceland High School. I spend my free time with my wife and family, hunting, fishing, working out, going to church, or playing guitar and singing.
