Lloyd Weigel is the Founder of Advanced Strategies Adventures, Inc., and serves as President. He is also on  the Board of Directors. Brought up hunting and trapping, Lloyd's love for the outdoors led him to extreme drop camp hunting where he and other trackers would set up camp eight miles in at the Moose River Recreation Area, Inlet, NY.  Jim Massett, renowned whitetail buck tracker, was Lloyd's mentor and  a big part of Lloyd's life.  Lloyd is a NYS licensed hunting guide and has hunted in New York , as well as Canada and Colorado. "Nothing compares to tracking trophy whitetails" says Lloyd.  He has given many seminars on the subject and harvested three bucks with bow and arrow that made the NYS Big Buck Club Record Book, two of which made Pope and Young Record Book.  He possesses the great drive it takes to get our challenged members out hunting and fishing. Lloyd began in 2003, and has since touched many people's lives. He has made their dreams of continuing outdoor adventures a reality. He goes above and beyond to make every outing an experience never to be forgotten. With his desire to share his experience of the outdoors with everyone of all abilities, Lloyd has brought Advanced Strategies Adventures, Inc. to where it is today.


 “Little John” John DiMura is a legend to the sport of Archery. John served as our Vice President and was on the Board of Directors. John is in the Professional Archers Hall of Fame and is an inductee in the New York Hall of Fame. He helped establish and has the first handicapped archers permit with the permit #001.The law was passed in 1982 to allow a disabled archer to hunt with a bow pulled back in a locked position. He brings to the organization connections and ideas that only someone in John's place can. He is truly an inspiration to us and it is an honor for us to have had him as part of our organization.
