Meet The Team

Steve Skerce


I’m 58 years old and have been hunting since the age of 11. I grew up hunting on the central coast of California chasing wild boar, deer, doves, quail and ducks. I have been married to my beautiful wife Michelle for 32 years and have 4 great kids that all hunt. We moved to the mountains of the eastern sierra's in 1993 and began our first hunting business guiding hog, deer and turkey hunts. I had always waterfowl hunted, but it wasn’t until my boys got old enough to hunt that we got really serious about waterfowl. Spending every weekend in the marshes of the California refuge systems was our passion for many years, bringing our passion with us when we moved to Kansas in 2012. Shortly after moving here we worked hard to secure a few private farms to hunt on and have grown from there. I still get out and hunt other animals but when waterfowl season approaches you can find us training dogs, getting gear ready and pumping ourselves up for the next season. We live the outdoor lifestyle and love getting folks out on a waterfowl hunt of their dreams. I have a great crew of both new and seasoned guides who you will meet when you hunt with us. Thank you for looking into hunting with On the “X" Guide service!

My name is Justin Skerce and I am 24 years old. I have been hunting waterfowl since I was 8 years old with my father, Steve Skerce. I grew up hunting on the west coast in California until 2012 when we moved to Kansas to hunt the central flyway. I have pursued mainly waterfowl while also finding passion in hunting Turkey’s, deer and upland game. I have been helping my father guide waterfowl hunts for 4 years now. I attended Pratt community college and studied wildlife outfitting and operations while obtaining my associates degree in science. Currently I am enrolled Emporia State university as a marketing major. Hope you can join us and experience a hunt of a lifetime!

Started hunting when I was 12 with my grandfather, father, and my uncles. They started the obsession with hunting. Didn't start waterfowling till a little bit after that about the age of 14. I can remember walking up and down our family slew in northeastern Colorado. Grew up hunting the rockie mountains and northeast Colorado for deer,elk,turkey,and jump shooting ducks and geese off the river. I really didn't start the decoying ducks and geese till i was 15 and from there, I turned a passion into the obsession. I started guiding when i was 21 and new this is what i wanted to do for a career path. I guided for the past 4 seasons in northeast Colorado. I am married to my beautiful wife and we have 3 sons.. my wife and I moved to Kansas in 2022. We will never leave. We absolutely fell in love with Kansas. I'm looking forward to guiding with On the X guide service this year!
