Getting youth in the outdoors is a huge passion of mine and I am looking forward to bringing my network of Whitetail Properties family and friends to the program. I was fortunate enough to have a mentor when I was a teenager and that pivotal opportunity led to my passion in the outdoors and ultimately created my career in the outdoors. So many kids do not have the opportunity to experience the outdoors and I am excited to be part of a mission that can offer kids more opportunity in the outdoors.”
Pete Alfano: Pete Alfano is a founding partner of Whitetail Properties. Pete remains an agent at Whitetail Properties, continuing to serve as a Land Specialist for buyers and sellers seeking expertise in rural property markets and values. Whitetail Properties also relies on Pete as an advisor to the company’s leadership team on rural-market trends and buyer tendencies. Many in the hunting community and industry recognize Pete by his frequent appearances on Whitetail Properties TV. The company’s television show, which airs on The Sportsmen Channel, helps promote property listings and showcases extraordinary hunts because of science-based wildlife management and habitat enhancements of rural properties.
Over the years, Pete’s has also owned a couple of successful hunting lodges: one in Kentucky and another in southern Illinois. He’s owned rural properties in Minnesota, Illinois, Iowa, Colorado, Missouri, Oklahoma, New Mexico, Arizona and Kansas. And he’s been published in numerous outdoor publications including North American Whitetail, Wired to Hunt and Minnesota Outdoor News.
While Pete’s unorthodox experience in business ownership — having assumed these responsibilities at such a young age — have proven invaluable to his success at Whitetail Properties, his success can also be attributed to simply pursuing the things that he was personally passionate about.

He currently lives with his wife Christie in Oak Grove, Minnesota, northwest of the Twin Cities.
