Matthew Meketi

GM/Head Guide

Matt has been duck hunting since he was kid. Whether it’s the swamps & timber of West Tennessee, prairies of NODAK, or the flooded Ag fields of SEMO, he knows how to flat kill birds.

You’ll most likely see Hank, a stout yellow lab, beside Matt this winter in the flooded rice fields saving him a few steps in the gumbo.

Matt plays a crucial part in everything that encompasses Fowl Lifestyle every day of the year. There’s a good chance you’ll get to spend some time in the blind with him this winter if you come join us for a hunt!

He is married to his college sweetheart, Jan. Matt has a BS in Agriculture from the University of Tennessee & works in the surveying industry during the off-season.

Evan East


Evan has been hunting waterfowl for 20+ years & it has grown into his passion. Having hunted waterfowl in over 10 states, from marshes to timber to flooded fields, he enjoys the thrill of finding success in any situation, while having a great time in the process.

Evan has been hunting the fields of SEMO for years & is looking forward to showing everyone what it takes to finish birds close!

You will always find his black lab, Clyde, by his side no matter the environment or the conditions they face.

Evan went to college & played baseball at Auburn University. In the off-season you’ll find him doing carpentry work & building custom homes in south Alabama, but duck season never leaves his mind.

Dakota Ealey


Dakota hasn’t been around waterfowling quite as long as the rest of the crew, but that doesn’t slow him down when it comes to making sure you have the best trip possible

You’ll never find him not having an enjoyable time or making someone in the blind laugh & if you get a chance to hunt with him, there will never be a shortage of stories!

Dakota is married to his wife Ali & recently had their first son, Henry. Dakota has a BS degree in Turf & in the off-season he works in the golf course & turf industry.

Drake Williams


Drake has been duck hunting with his family since before even he can remember. He has hunted everything from big river divers, to the fields & potholes of North Dakota, & back to the grain fields of the delta.

Drake plays a part in some of everything that goes on at Fowl Lifestyle. Whether it is brushing before season, guiding hunts, or assisting daily lease clients, or building new blinds, you are sure to see him during your trip.

He is currently pursuing his Doctorate at the University of Memphis after already finishing his BS in Chemistry from the University of Tennessee.

Ryan Saine

Bookings Manager/Guide

Ryan was there from day 1 with Fowl Lifestyle, from the earliest stages of the dream until the fulfillment of that dream. Life took him a bit further south to chase his dream of training hunting dogs to their fullest potential while also working another full-time job, but that doesn’t mean his mind is any less focused on FLO.

Ryan handles the majority of the off-season phone calls that deal with bookings, just like he has since day 1. He is a critical piece of the team both during the off-season, for bookings & pre-season work, as well as during season to keep things running smoothly behind the scenes.
