Randy Opferbeck

Randy and his wife, Debbie, live in Allegany, NY. Randy was one of the first pro staff members for the Quaker Boy Team. He spent many hours playing with turkey calls with Dick Kirby at his home in Orchard Park, NY. While he has hunted successfully numerous states to satisfy his turkey passion, his real claim to fame is his volunteer service to the National Wild Turkey Federation. He has been active with the New York State Chapter since its inception in 1975. He currently holds the position of secretary and is also the president of the Enchanted Mountains local chapter. In 1996, he was awarded the Roger Latham Service Award by the NWTF. Randy also spent time as a turkey hunting guide, has done many hunting seminars, introduced many to turkey hunting and also does occasional outdoor writing. In addition, Randy was inducted into the New York Outdoorsmen Hall of Fame class of 2012. Randy’s favorite turkey hunting today is for Rio Grande in Texas with his stepson David, who caught the turkey fever from Randy.
