Meet The Team


Comprised of all different skill levels, the members of Team WIld Michigan have one goal; "To learn as well as share all that we have learned, in our experiences along the way to becoming a true outdoorsman!" 




Now into his 22nd year in radio, Duran finds his biggest career accomplishment in WIld Michigan. "Not only have we been able to learn from the best in the outdoors industry, we have been able to share all of what we have learned with everyone that cares to listen to the show." - Duran

A lifelong Michigan hunter and angler, Duran shares his passion of the outdoors with his daughter Eryn and many other friends and family members.

Sara Marie

Team Wild Michigan Producer and Researcher

New to the outdoors lifestyle, Sara Marie has taken on every challenge with great confidence. Fully immersed, she has enjoyed fishing and is now hunting for her first ever whitetail. An accomplishment she hopes to achieve still in 2014. So far this year she has added her first woodduck and pheasant to her trophies. As she continues we will be sure to share photos and stories with you here. 

Russ Bartel

Team Wild Michigan

Another lifelong sportsman, Russ is the "Professor" of the group. Taking and analyzing every angle, he offers a more in depth approach to the team. Having first met him at a shooting seminar with the late Tom Knapp, we became fast friends and have had oppotunities to hunt, fish and travel the country to some amazing place. And because of his 15 mintues of instruction at the Bob Bondurant Racing School, we usually let him drive!
