“I was 7 years old when I shot my first buck, and the antlers measured at 170 points,’’ Riegger said. “We have hills, trees, swamps … great deer country. The big bucks love that river bottom.’’
Riegger bounced between the PGA Tour and the secondary tour (now the Web.com) from 1987 through 2011. He earned a total of $2,233,729 on the PGA Tour. He won twice on the secondary tour: in 2007 and 2010.
And in the fall, he would take friends bow hunting for big bucks.
“I had people tell me, ‘John, you should turn this into a business and charge people to guide,’ so that’s what I did,’ ” Riegger said.
He started Southern Whitetails a couple of years ago. And then he went to the Champions Tour’s Q school last fall and made it.
“I’m living in Las Vegas now,’’ Riegger said. “We have some other guys working the guide business. I love deer hunting, but it’s all golf for me for the next few years.’’
