Who We Are
Bill Blodgett's life was shaped by adversity from a young age. Losing his father at just two years old and growing up without that guiding presence could have led him down a dark path. However, destiny had something else in store for him. As a teenager, Bill found solace and mentorship in the form of a couple of his friend's dads. These men not only introduced him to the joys of the outdoors but also helped him forge a meaningful relationship with faith. Their guidance was a turning point that kept Bill away from a potentially troubled future that often befalls fatherless youths.
Years later, the love and direction that these mentors provided Bill resurfaced as a dream to change the lives of countless other fatherless youth. This dream gave birth to Majesty Outdoors in 2007, marking the beginning of an incredible journey.
Susan is Bill’s wife for over 25 years and has a degree in accounting from Texas A&M University. She was raised in an extensive ranching operation in McMullen County, Texas, where she assisted her family in their cattle operation and accounting. She has been alongside Bill and Majesty Outdoors since day one. She chaperones when the crew films teen girls. Susan is a prayer warrior, with a gigantic servants heart and gift of hospitality.
