Safari Club International Utah Chapter

Doug Maples Bio

  I was born and raised in Southeastern New Mexico. My fondest memories as a boy are the times spent hunting deer, antelope and a variety of birds with my family. I later lived in Alaska where as a resident I enjoyed hunting brown bear, unfortunately never getting the thrill of taking a trophy. I also fished salmon and halibut whenever I could. Next was Washington State where I settled for 20 years. I switched my career from being an oil well head specialists to get into the fast growing field of telecommunications. While living in Washington I fulfilled my dream of going on an Africa Safari with my dad and brother. I hunted with the Ubathi Outfitters. My trophies from that trip include a Nyala, Springbok, Impala and a pair of Caracal cats. After 10 years as a Project Manager for cell tower companies I tired of the constant travel and accepted the job that brought me to Utah 5 years ago. I am now the West Coast Operations Manager for Rosenberger Site Solutions. I live in South Jordan, Utah with my wife Lori. I have 2 grown daughters and 2 granddaughters. My brother Royce Maples is a former president and current board member of the Southern New Mexico chapter of the SCI. He has instilled in me the importance of the values of the SCI that are far and above any other comparable organization. I want to participate in programs that help and encourage our youth in Utah to enjoy outdoor activities like hunting and fishing so that they too will realize the importance of the reserving of our rights in the future. Therefore I would be honored to sit on the local Utah Chapter of the SCI so that I can contribute in all ways possible in Wildlife Conservation and continued improvement of our hunting rights.
