Joe is a very accomplished hunter but more importantly he shares our core values of honesty and integrity. With more than three decades of experience in corporate sales and customer service Joe also brings an intimate knowledge of corporate incentive and client/relationship building travel strategies to our team and our clients. Joe lives in Victoria, Minnesota and are excited to have a consultant in the Twin Cities market. Welcome aboard, Joe!
Joe was born and raised in New Mexico and grew up working on his family’s third generation beef cattle ranches. Hunting in his early years included small game, mule deer, elk, and the never-ending supply of coyotes. Joe spent the majority of his professional career in the livestock-poultry feed industry initially in the US and later working with global technical sales teams on all 5 continents. His work brought him and his family to live in Minnesota over 25 years ago.
He expanded his hunting and fishing interests to include numerous North American big-game animal species, upland bird hunting as well as fresh and salt water fishing. Joe has been fortunate to hunt and fish throughout the US and Canada as well as forays into Mexico and Argentina. His most recent interests include archery hunting and fly fishing. All his life Joe has been connected to animal agriculture and the outdoors, and hunting-fishing activities play an integral role in that connection.
Joe is married and has an ever-supportive wife, Adrienne. The Carrica’s are blessed with three grown children (Megan, Eric and Anna) and family is the only thing that takes precedence over outdoor adventures.
As a previous corporate client of Hosted Hunts, Joe has experienced first-hand, the role we play in coordinating our catalog of value added services. He is dedicated to customer service, exceeding client expectations and having fun while doing so. He holds dear the personal characteristics of honesty, hard work and effective communication. Joe is a lifetime member of the NRA and a member of Safari Club International.
