Kim DeLozier grew up living and working on his family’s farm in eastern Tennessee raising cattle, tobacco, hogs (not wild), and chickens (13,000 of them).
Kim graduated from the University of Tennessee with a degree in Wildlife and Fisheries Science.
He began his career with the Great Smoky Mountains National Park in 1978 working as a wild hog hunter.
Kim retired in 2010 after 32 rewarding years of service in wildlife management.
During his career, Kim’s involvement primarily focused on nuisance black bear management, wild hog control, white-tailed deer management, small animal management (skunks, raccoons, bats), and re-introduction efforts for elk, peregrine falcons, river otters, and red wolves.
Currently, Kim works for the Rocky Mountain Elk Foundation focusing on elk restoration throughout the eastern US.
Kim married his high school sweetheart, Donna, over 36 years ago.
They have two wonderful children, Carrie and Travis, and four precious grandsons, Baylor, Duke, Turner, and Fox.
Kim and Donna currently live on the original DeLozier farm in the same farmhouse his Dad was raised in.
They feel extremely blessed!
