Chris and Kristy Daniels
Chris and Kristy met at Purdue University in 1999. Upon graduation, Chris’ two uncles introduced him to deer hunting, where he found a new passion. He had never had the opportunity to hunt growing up, but always loved the outdoors. When Chris and Kristy married in 2004, they decided to both work in real estate in Chris’ hometown of Tampa, Florida. Chris wanted to pursue his passion for hunting, and spent 2 seasons in Central Illinois working as a whitetail guide learning the ins and outs of the industry. The following 2 years, he headed to Missouri to guide at a large estate for North American whitetail, American bison, elk and red deer. All the while, Kristy stayed in Florida selling residential real estate. In early 2007, they headed back to the Midwest to find a farm for their own whitetail preserve. After several years of research, Ohio seemed to be the best place to look for the ideal piece of property…..the perfect habitat for whitetails. They were fortunate to come across Briarwood, which had been operating as a members-only fishing club for 30+ years. On their first trip to the club, they both knew they found something special. The Daniels purchased the property in September of 2008, and never looked back. Chris and Kristy are passionate about family, the outdoors, and providing a true Briarwood “experience” to each and every guest that visits!
