Rodney Dunham

Rodney Dunham, a hunting and fishing guide that I have known for over 15 years, suffered some severe injuries in a snowmobiling accident a couple of weeks ago.  Read the text below to learn more about Rodney, but I can tell you from first-hand experience what a good guy Rodney is.  Rodney took me and my sons on many fishing trips in the Flat Tops Wilderness area, and he took me on many elk hunts in the same area.  Rodney was always an excellent guide, and he was great with my kids.  I also worked with Rodney for Sable Mountain Outfitters, and he is one of the best; both as a guide and as a person.  I am asking my readers to help Rodney in a time of need, every little bit helps.  You can help Rodney by clicking here.

At the start of the New Year Rodney Dunham was involved in a freak accident while snowmobiling with his family. He sustained neck and spinal injuries and underwent surgery at St. Mary’s Hospital in Grand Junction, Colorado to repair the spinal damage and relieve pressure and swelling. Rodney is showing positive signs of recovery but he has a long road ahead of rehabilitation. The doctors at St. Mary’s requested to transfer Rodney to the Rehabilitation program at Craig Hospital in Denver to provide him with the best care during the recovery. They expect he will be in the hospital undergoing rehab therapy for multiple months.

Rodney is the third from the left in this picture. He is a giant of a man, and his heart is just as big.

Rodney is a respected member and leader in the Meeker, Colorado outfitting and ranching community. He was born and raised in Meeker and shares his passion for the outdoors with people from across the country as a hunting, fishing and horseback guide. For the last 18 years he has guided elk hunts and fishing trips with Sable Mountain Outfitters. In addition to outfitting, Rodney is an active cattleman and was elected president of the Rio Blanco County Stock Grower’s Association in 2016. He has always supported the ranching community and served as the vice president for Friends of FFA for multiple years. His commitment has included helping to chaperone the national meat-judging trip for the local FFA chapter.  Rodney consistently supports his community and family. He is the proud father of two children who currently attend college in Nebraska and Texas.

All funds raised through this Go Fund Me campaign will go directly to the Dunham family to help cover medical costs and family travel expenses so they can be at his side during recovery and rehab. The community has also established the Rodney Dunham Relief Fund at Mountain Valley Bank in Meeker for local donations.
