Steve Oertling Land Sales Agent Born and raised in Lafayette, Louisiana, my father’s love for hunting, fishing and the outdoors led me to become an avid outdoor enthusiast myself. We hunted and fished anywhere we could, mainly in Louisiana. From duck hunting the Louisiana marshes, fishing the Gulf of Mexico and inland waters, and bow hunting throughout, our outdoor adventures lead us through many states from Florida to Alaska. I attended UL at Lafayette studying Geology, then began my oilfield career working as an oilfield surveyor and land man. I continued through many aspects of the industry, with the latter portion focused on the environmental sales. My family and I are now grateful to own a nice piece of property where we can spend time with family and friends enjoying the outdoors, hunting and fishing. I love spending time working on our property, managing it for the best use for wildlife and family, and sharing my experience and knowledge with all. My favorite pastime is spending time with my wife, kids and grandkids, hunting and fishing on our own property. My wife, Karen, and I, have 3 adult children; Jacob, Isaac and his wife Nikki, their sons Isaac (Deuce) 7yrs, and Dax 6mos.; daughter Laci and her husband Chris, their son Ryler 4yrs and identical twin boys, Rhett and Rogan, due in a few months.
