Brandon and Kendra Kunz

Generation 3

Lynn Madsen's grandson, and son to Renae, Brandon Kunz and his wife Kendra have taken over the outfitting business with the same dedication to quality Lynn instilled.

Brandon started riding to Hawks Rest and the Teton Wilderness when he was five years old, bringing a breadth of experience few can to outfitting. His wife, Kendra often surprises guests with her outdoorsmanship and versatility on the trail.

Most of Yellowstone Outiftters' horses and pack mules were born into the outfit. Or at least bought as colts and trained under the Outfit.

The animals are trained so well you'll happily entrust your life and equipment to them, no matter your riding style, age, or abilities.
