Dalton Brownfield

Youth Mentor

Dalton Brownfield, 24 years old was born and raised in Urbana, Illinois. He worked in construction before injured in a work-related explosion. The accident left him with 2nd and 3rd-degree burns covering 85% of his body.

Hunting and fishing was always a huge part of his life for as long as he could remember. He harvested his first deer at ten years old and hooked on whitetail hunting ever since. Besides hunting, another lifelong passion was bass fishing. He enjoys fishing tournaments, pond, and river fishing. When he is not hunting or fishing, he enjoys spending time with his fiancé and daughter.

Unfortunately for Dalton, the accident was a massive roadblock for his outdoor passions. Many things that were once easy to do became a challenge. He worked hard through therapy in hopes to continue doing the things he enjoyed most.

In October 2017, he helped guide a deer hunt for a child battling a life-threatening illness at USSA’s IL Dream Hunt in Harrisburg, IL. Dalton said, “To say the Dream Hunt changed my life is an understatement. I hope to continue to work with children and show them that no matter the situation, the outdoors is always a getaway.”
