Welcome to our Advanced Wildlife Management page.
In 2018, Chris O'Banion was awarded with the ‘Educator of the Year’ by National Wildlife Control Operators Association. This award is given to individuals who go out of their way to share their time and knowledge for the betterment of the wildlife control industry.
Chris was born into a farming family, and spent the better part of his childhood in the woods and streams around his family’s home. In high school, he became a member of several state championship wildlife and environmental competition teams.
While studying wildlife management at The Ohio State University he took a part time job with a local wildlife control company. That part time job quickly sparked a passion for a career that he didn't realize was possible.
