Custom Long-Range


Derrick Ratliff


Derrick Ratliff graduated from Texas A&M with a BS in wildlife sciences and a minor in business. Already an avid outdoorsman, Derrick perfected his archery skills during college, joining the competitive compound archery team. Upon graduation, Derrick followed his passion to a research and development project coordinator position at Bowtech Archery in Oregon, where he established trends, designed new models, and collaborated with engineers to create innovative products. A job offer from Texas’ largest truck accessory distributor brought him home to Texas, and he spent several years with Kaspar Companies, working as a purchasing manager for Croft Distribution and then in marketing for Ranch Hand. His skills in hunting and shooting landed him a spot as the host of a Sportsman Channel TV series which eventually allowed him to utilize his extensive field experience to create a custom long-range rifle business, Horizon Firearms.
