Our heartfelt condolences go out to the Dennis Campbell family. We will surely miss the presence of a truly caring person who lived life with passion and purpose. He had a philosophy and verbalized it as, “I want to live until I die.”
Though I did not know Dennis well, I know he lived his life fully and was respected by everyone.

In 1990, Dennis was appointed as executive director of the Grand Slam Club of North American Sheep Hunters. At the time there were less than 400 members. Today, due to his leadership there are over 4,000 members.
Dennis began a similar organization for international mountain game hunters in 1997, known as Ovis, Inc. He donated that organization, along with its life membership fund, to the Grand Slam Club in 2001, and the two merged into what is known today as the 501(c)(3) non-profit conservation organization Grand Slam Club/Ovis (GSCO). During Dennis’s 27 years as executive director, GSCO has donated directly nearly $9,000,000 for big game conservation projects worldwide.
