Mark Zepp grew up on a farm in the small rural town of Warsaw, OH. He followed a Redbone coonhound through the river bottoms and hills of southern Ohio, hunted, trapped, fished, and called fox with an old predator call his grandfather bought for him.
Mark has spent his entire life working in the outdoor industry. After graduating from college, he spent the next 10 years working in Missouri, spent 13 years in the foothill desert country of Arizona, and moved back to the Midwest in the summer of 2010. He and his wife, Amber, are the owners of Zepp's Predator Calls, a recognized name in the predator calling industry. He has hunted and given predator calling seminars all across the country,appeared in several trade magazines, and featured on several television programs.
In January 2008, he and Gary Kellar achieved an industry first. They became the first predator callers to successfully call, kill, and film a mountain lion for Zepp's dvd, "Free Grass and No Fences".
His industry hero's include Gerry Blair, Gerald Stewart, Dan Thompson, and Major Boddicker. "When I was thirteen, I met Major Boddicker at the Western Stockmen Show in Denver, Colorado and purchased a Crit'r Call and instructional cassette from him. The purchase of that call had a significant influence on my life."
Other heros include Realtree's Bill Jordan, Jim Shockey, and Michael Waddell, the Bone Collector. Mark lives in Goshen, Indiana with his wife Amber and their son Wyatt.
