Peter SchwanSecretary: Peter Schwan

Hello, my name is Peter Schwan.  I was born in Phoenix, AZ where I currently reside.  I am the President of Xlt-Cor, Inc.; a company I built from the ground up.  Xlt-Cor Inc. specializes in the planning and construction of commercial cold storage warehouses.  If you have ever purchased a frosty cold Shamrock milk while in line at Subway, my company played a vital role in keeping it cold.

I have been an outdoorsman my entire life. However, I didn't fall in love with elk till my early twenties. I vividly remember chasing my first elk at 8,500 feet in SW Colorado while attending college at Fort Lewis in Durango, Colorado. Wrapping my hands around those sap covered antlers was an exhilarating moment I will never forget. These animals are beautiful, they have amazing playgrounds, and are the best table fare. I have been chasing and studying elk in Arizona ever since. I have replaced the high elevation of Colorado with deep canyons of Arizona. When I am not fortunate enough to draw an elk tag, you can find me patiently glassing the desert shadows for hours on end in hopes an elusive Coues Deer will make a mistake.
