Matt Waguespack

Sportsman Outreach Coordinator for Louisiana

Growing up along bayou Lafourche, Matthew Waguespack learned how to hunt, fish, track, trap, and process wild game at a very young age. His grandfather taught him these skills in order to ensure that Matthew could always provide food for his family, even during times of shortage. This quality time spent with his grandfather first laid the foundation of Matthew’s passion for the outdoors. Being an outdoor enthusiast, Matthew loves sharing his knowledge of animals and the outdoors with others. He believes that it is the duty of all sportsmen to introduce someone new into the outdoors. Matthew enjoys bringing people hunting and fishing because it allows him to provide a tangible opportunity to showcase the importance of conservation along with the habitat and resources he is trying to preserve. Matthew graduated with a bachelor’s degree in Interdisciplinary Studies from Nicholls State University. During his college career, Matthew was an active member of the Kappa Sigma Fraternity and the Nicholls Bass Federation. After graduating college, Matthew’s professional career first revolved around sugarcane research and crop consulting. Matthew then moved to the Caribbean to work on a project that focused on implementing farming technology in the Virgin Islands. Upon returning to Louisiana, Matthew was then hired as a full time hunting and fishing guide for lodge in Terrebonne parish.
