Ron’s favorite cousin—sorry Marie! Cousin Lisa is a Florida native with a background in hospitality. She is a skilled huntress, especially when it comes to hunting wild boar with a knife. Cousin Lisa is a family girl and enjoys hunting and fishing with her daughter, Kennedy. As a teen, Cousin Lisa managed a small Lakeport Florida restaurant, “The Hide-Away,” and worked at Captain Ron’s Bait Shop, “The Little Big Man.” Cousin Lisa would go on to assist Captain Ron with wild boar hunting and special events which led her to become a certified event planner. Cousin Lisa can help you plan the perfect bachelor party, corporate event, or family vacation!
Captain Ron learned a lot from his Aunt Diana—a stern huntress with a warm heart. Grandma Dean has over fifty years of hunting experience. Noted expeditions include Tanzania, Zimbabwe, and Namibia. While her safari days are past her, Grandma Dean still enjoys exploring the glades with Grandpa Dean, sleeping in the woods, and helping RGS clients with their exciting adventure. Grandma Dean’s exploits will be the topic of conversation around campfires as long as the big game still roam the plains and bush of the mystifying African continent.
Lisa’s sister and Kennedy’s favorite aunt—Cousin Marie is loved by many RGS clients. An avid huntress, her most memorable experience was hunting an alligator that was devouring neighborhood dogs. Patient, kind, and knowledgable, Cousin Marie can handle the toughest of questions with a cheery disposition. On a serious note—Cousin Marie would like to thank all of the folks that call Ron’s Guide Service. Confined to her bed for the past two years due to her debilitating weight, Cousin Marie truly enjoys chatting with potential clients about hunting and fishing which has motivated her to lose weight so she can go on her own expedition someday!
Look out for Kennedy—Ron’s gun-totin’ little niece and the face of Ron’s Guide Service. Kennedy is passionate about the outdoors—just like her mama, Cousin Lisa. Kennedy has a deep respect for nature and represents our hope for today’s youth.
Lisa’s stepson Jason is a skilled hunting guide and a wealth of knowledge when it comes to the outdoors. A recent transplant from Colorado where he would hunt elk and ice fish—Jason is happy to chat all day with you about hunting, fishing, and the great outdoors!
