Donald “Hunter” Oscar Heumann, a native New Orleanian, relocated to Jackson Hole to accept a position as a fly fishing guide and outfitter in 2010. At the same time and place, Margaret “Maggie” Pendelton Jordan was earning her Master’s degree in Entomology. The two first met while playing on a recreation soccer team with several members from local fly shops. Hunter and Maggie quickly became friends and began dating in the fall. Their mutual love of fishing, hunting, mountains and rivers led them to make the decision to stay together in the West with their dogs, Bug and Missy.
While Hunter and Maggie were in the middle of moving into their new home in the Teton Valley, Hunter proposed to Maggie. He surprised her on the front porch on one knee with the ring in hand to pop the question. Shortly after she said yes, a group of Jackson Hole friends arrived to celebrate in the valley with the newly engaged couple.
After their wedding, Maggie and Hunter honeymooned in Belize on Ambergis Caye and spent five days fly-fishing at the El Pescador Lodge.
The couple lives in Victor, Idaho, just across the Teton Pass from Jackson, Wyoming, where Hunter is a fly fishing guide for an outfitter in Jackson and Maggie is the softgoods buyer for a Jackson outfitting company.
