Cory was born and raised in southern Oregon, in a very rich outdoorsman community. He grew up in a family where hunting was life and feeding the family with fresh organic meat was a must. Cory’s grandfather and father both bow hunted only, so naturally he took to the sport. As Cory’s skill level grew he soon found himself on many solo wilderness hunts, and that is where he found his true sense of belonging and passion - deep in the backcountry with nothing more than grit and determination to be a successful hunter.

He has pursued all kinds of wild game in many states on mostly public land, over the counter tags, and DIY, by means of both rifle and archery. Many trophy animals have been tag by Cory as a result from painstaking hard work.

Cory is also lucky to have a wife who enjoys the same life style as he does and is an accomplished hunter herself. In his time away from hunting Cory makes a living as a journeyman lineman traveling across the country building and maintaining power lines.

As life has taken him into this industry of hunting Cory has realized how important it is to utilize the best hunting tools available.

He has worn Kryptek for years now and it has never let him down on any expedition. “I am blessed to be a part of an outstanding company that strives to manufacture the best of the best product available.” -Cory Staniforth
