get to know us
The Lexington Hunt Club came out of a life-long dream of your host, Abe Walsh. After a long career in the outdoor industry as a magazine writer, editor
Officially our Operations Manager, Jani Walsh is actually our Do-It-All Manager. She’s usually our first point of contact for guests and is there to make sure everything goes smoothly leading up to your hunt. Once on site, Jani is the one who coordinates all the pieces to make sure our guests have the absolute trip of a lifetime.
As our ranch caretaker and Head Guide, EJ handles everything from making sure the roads are well maintained to keeping the blinds free of unwanted critters, and of course, keeping tabs on some of the biggest whitetails on the planet. He is the fourth generation to work the family farm just a few miles from the lodge, where he lives with his wife Krista (how he convinced a bonafide Beauty Queen to marry him is beyond all comprehension…but he did!) and their young son Kayden. Nobody spends more time around the deer than EJ, and he knows where all the big ones hide.
A life-long outdoorsman, Jason has many years of guiding experience. He enjoys hunting, fishing and any other activity that gets him outdoors and out from behind a desk. Jason is a hard-core family man who loves sharing the outdoors with his boys…especially Eli (pictured) who sometimes helps us in the field! He’s sharp-eyed, client-focused, and eager to get his hunters the biggest and best of whatever their hunting…especially if it’s bigger than what Charlie brings in.
Charlie Roy has been hunting since he was old enough to hurl rocks at toads. Cool as a cucumber in everyday life, when he’s afield with a hunter he just can’t contain his excitement. When his hunters connect we can usually hear him hootin’ and hollering all the way across the preserve! He’s quick with a high-five, fist bump or if you’re not watching, he’ll wrap you up in a sincere man-hug. And you talk about an eagle eye: Charlie is usually the first to spot the slightest twitch of an ear buried in the thickest brush. Charlie’s goal: Have his hunters shoot something bigger than Jason’s hunters.
A long-time outdoor writer, and a man who loves his motorcycle a little more than is healthy, JD Gore flies out from Oregon to lend his guiding expertise to The Lexington Hunt Club. He has been guiding hunters since his teenage years back in California—which was a REALLY long time ago! No one will work harder to ensure his client’s have the best experience possible.
The Lexington Hunt Club is located just a few miles south of Romney, West Virginia, approximately two hours from the DC Metro area and only three hours from Pittsburgh.
