Matt Vokes

Guide at Hubbard’s Yellowstone Outfitters and Watlington Outdoors Pro-Staff Member

Matt Vokes was born and raised in Clearfield, PA where he grew up hunting and fly fishing with his family and friends in the mountains of Central Pennsylvania. After graduating from Penn State University in 1998, Matt landed a job with Hubbard’s Yellowstone Lodge/Hubbard’s Yellowstone Outfitters in Southwest Montana.  For the next six years, he guided fly-fishermen and elk hunters at Hubbard’s.  Spring and summer were spent working on the Yellowstone River, famous Spring Creeks of Paradise Valley, and wading the endless waterways of Yellowstone National Park.  When fall rolled around and elk bugles filled the air, Matt traded in his fly boxes for cow calls and bugle tubes.

He guided bow hunters during the “heart pounding” elk rut and continued chasing elk through Montana’s rifle season. After leaving Montana for a few years, Matt returned to Big Sky Country in 2008 and continues to guide elk and deer hunters for the same outfitter.

Matt has over two decades of hunting, fishing, and guiding experience in the Northeast, Midwest, and Rocky Mountains. He has hunted elk, whitetail deer, mule deer, black bear, mountain goat, wolf, pronghorn antelope, wild turkey, upland birds, and has fly fished numerous Pennsylvania limestone streams along with countless “big” rivers in the West.

Matt now resides in Winchester, VA with his wife Nicki and their jack Russell terrier, Gracie. But he still makes the annual trip north to hunt with family and friends during the highly anticipated 2nd week of Pennsylvania deer season at the family hunting camp.
