Will Killem's Story
THE VIEWS REPRESENTED BY WILL KILLEM ARE NOT NECESSARILY THE VIEWS OF
THE CONCHO COWBOY COMPANY.
My name is Will Killem and I’m the trail boss of The Concho Cowboys.
“I’m a man who never understands the word called danger. I learned to shoot and ride as a child and I never trust a stranger.”
I have a down right mean and ornery disposition and I do not take any guff off of anyone. If you see me coming you better step aside. I mean it now! Tall in the saddle and quick on the draw; I’m always shooting first and asking questions later. Don't turn your back on me.
I’ve always been a cowboy. I learned to ride before I learned to read. I worked on several ranches when I was young and rode rough stock on the rodeo circuit for several years. I’ve gentled and trained many a good horse in my day.
My old west reenactment experience began when I got my first Mattel Fanner 50 toy pistol and I’ve never looked back since. Matt Dillon and I rode a many a mile together. Up until about ‘04, when I joined my first group, I was a lone gunman reenacting on my own. After I joined a group of Texas Ranger reenactors, I decided that there was safety in numbers; not to mention all the great friends that I made. In ’06 a handful of us got together and decided to start the Concho Cowboy Co. and the rest is history. I’ve been all over Texas performing living history reenactments for many events and people. I am a proud member of The Reenactment Guild of America & the National Rifle Association.
I’m an avid West Texas historian and I have given talks about local history and the old west. My greatest pleasure is to see the smiles that we put on people’s faces, especially the kid’s!
Vaya con Dios,
