Born in 1977 William “Billy” Molls was raised on a Wisconsin dairy farm. Despite the endless supply of work, his father and grandfathers always found time to take him hunting, fishing, and trapping. As Billy grew older he ventured out on his own further and further away from the farm. By the age of 14 he knew the only place that could satisfy his craving for adventure was Alaska. As soon as he graduated with his class of 34 students from Turtle Lake High School in 1996, Billy headed to guide school in Montana. After the month-long course he found work in Idaho as a wrangler, packer, and guide for an outfitter in the Frank Church River of No Return wilderness for elk, big horn sheep, and mule deer. That winter he wrote, called, and emailed every Alaskan outfitter he could find. The following spring he ventured north to the Last Frontier to embark on a two-year apprenticeship. Since then Billy has been guiding big game hunters in Alaska for brown bear, black bear, grizzly bear, Dall sheep, moose, caribou, and wolf. Along the way Billy snagged the catch of his life and married his wife, Stacia, in 2006. Together they raise their three daughters.
Billy is passionate about life, his family, his job as a guide, and capturing his adventures on paper and film, so other outdoorsmen can enjoy and experience the sport of hunting and the wilderness of Alaska that he loves so much.
