Buddy Woodberry - Owner
Buddy and Laura Woodberry Started Double U 13 years ago, beginning with decals and gradually expanding to a full-line dog hunting supply shop. During the season you can find Buddy and Laura chasing bobcats with their dogs.
Buddy has an Associates in Electronics from Heald College. Some of his key accomplishments during his 14-year career at Intel as a Senior Product Development Technician (1998 to 2011) included Design Validation, Product Validation, and Customer Line Failures. Most of Buddy's work was with the high-end server chipset team. In layman’s terms, Buddy explains, "The design engineers would build it and we would try to break it for them."
He enjoyed his career at one of the largest and most advanced companies in the world, and although he was sad to leave such a great company with so many good memories and friends, he doesn't regret the decision.
Buddy and Laura decided he should quit Intel late in 2011 to devote his full attention to Double U. At that time, we didn't have a clue how well our customers would support us and help our company grow. Now, however, it's heartwarming and humbling to realize we are building a reputation and a brand doing something we are passionate about.
Laura and Buddy have two young children: a son born in 2009 named Bradley, and a daughter born in 2011 named Tyler. They also have a few dogs, and regularly attempt to “hunt cats” with them. As with all Houndsmen, things can change quickly but currently the Woodberrys have 4 hounds: Penny, Bonnie, Shyanne, Shelby, and a family pet named Dia.
Buddy is always checking emails, and thinking and working on Double U. It’s a challenge for him to slow down and shut off the computer and enjoy his kids, but he knows life is too short to miss time with the young ones. So if you can't reach Buddy, hopefully it's because he made time to go play in the yard with Bradley and Tyler, or enjoy some down time in the woods camping and hunting with his whole family.
We wholeheartedly enjoy all our customers. If you have any issues or questions feel free to call and ask for Buddy.
