About Me

Brent York


I was born and raised in Adams County and reside in the Town of Richfield with my wife Jalane of 23 years along with our two teenage sons, Ryan and Colin. I enjoy all aspects of outdoor life both local and in the mountains of Colorado and Wyoming hunting deer, elk, and turkeys as well as snowmobiling, skiing, hiking, biking, camping and traveling within our beautiful state as well as National Parks.  I am currently the youth committee co-chair for the Rocky Mountain Elk Foundation-Baraboo Chapter Range and a board member for the Coloma Pathfinders which maintain 24 miles in Adams County.
