He manages several thousand acres of privately owned real estate throughout the Shore and eastern Delaware. These areas harbor some of the finest waterfowl, turkey and deer hunting found in the North East United States.

Mali has been an avid all around hunter for nearly 30 years and especially loves the challenge of Bow Hunting whitetail deer, particularly mature whitetail bucks. Over the years he has killed numerous record book bucks in his home state of Maryland and he also travels to his farm in Illinois where he has proven that a small tract of land can consistently produce mature whitetails if managed properly. Mali firmly believes that consistently killing mature bucks is simply not an accident and those that are willing to educate themselves & properly manage their lands will reap the rewards of patience.
The high quality Waterfowl hunting of the Chesapeake Bay region is responsible for building its historic reputation as a Waterfowl Mecca. In addition to deer & turkey hunting, Mali is also a serious Waterfowl Hunter and an accomplished World Class Decoy Carver.

Mali has been making decorative mantle decoys and custom gunning rigs for customers all over the country and some of his client list includes Hollywood Actors and past US Presidents. From deer hunting to waterfowl hunting….it’s easy to see that Mali has involved himself fully in everything outdoors and wildlife.
Mali’s life is dedicated to faith, his wife Brenda & and 2 beautiful children Victor and Sarah. Without the love and support of his family, his profession would only be a dream. They spend most of their time together fishing, crabbing and enjoying the outdoors.
