Colleen Payne – New Mexico Regional Director

Colleen is a lifelong hunter, born and raised in New Mexico., harvesting her first mule deer at age 12, and hopelessly hooked on the outdoors ever since. Holding a Bachelor and Masters degree in Animal Science, Colleen also started up as MDF committee member in 2012 and has built a volunteer team across the state.  In addition to chapter events and project support, you can find Colleen teaching hunter education classes, taking new hunters into the field as well practicing wild game recipes. When not on the road for work, she enjoys hunting across the west with husband Rusty and Jack Russell Skeeter as well as riding her quarter horse Hondo.
