Chicago Huntsmen: Our Story
We are the Huntsmen. We are Chicago.

We’ve always been on the hunt for glory, but to make it, we’ve had to out hustle everyone. No rest, no days off, always another mountain to climb.

Like the land we come from, we are ready for anything; rain, wind, sun or snow we’ve been through it all and have the scars to prove it. The Huntsmen are more than just the biggest names in the game. The Huntsmen are tenacious. The Huntsmen are champions.

Life will give you just enough to be comfortable. We’re never comfortable, because to achieve greatness you must become the Huntsmen, not the hunted.
