Roby Burch - Founder
While Roby grew up outside of Philadelphia, it was his summers on a family ranch in Big Timber, Montana that led him to Burch Barrel. Time spent around the fire with his family, gathering cattle or chasing ducks on the ranch all led to Roby developing a passion for hunting, fishing, cooking, and ranching. When he’s not coming up with new innovative products or leading the Burch Barrel crew, Roby is most likely cooking, working cattle on horseback, hanging out with Houston or planning next year's duck season.
Rudi Laveran - Sales
Rudi is originally from Philadelphia but found himself wanting to see new parts of the country. With family ties in Montana and a yearning to be immersed in the outdoors, he packed up and drove west. Rudi is a die-hard believer in the importance of scouting and can spend hours in his truck looking for both deer and ducks. While he loves fishing and bow hunting, it is waterfowl hunting that truly captivates him. Rudi puts an insane amount of hard work and preparation into chasing ducks but it’s the comradery that places this pursuit at the top of his list. Post hunt, there’s nothing he’d rather do than light a Burch Barrel, have a beer, and talk about that mornings hunt with his buds.
Corey Piersol - Business Operations
Corey has called Montana home for the past 16 years. Growing up in the Adirondack Mountains he learned to fish and hone his skills as an outdoorsman. Moving to Montana introduced him to hunting and harvesting. You can find him either on a river throwing a rusty spinner to big brown trout on the Madison River or climbing in Montana's National Forests from March to September. Come fall he’ll be out trying to find elk until his ice climbing season begins in December. His goal was to pass on his passions in a place that offers plenty. With his wife Stephanie, Corey has two boys, Brooks and Sawyer, who are absorbing all that Montana has to offer.
