Meet TJ Schwanky
For T.J., the hunt is as much about the adventure as it is about the pursuit of game and he has hunted around the globe. He is recognized as a mountain-hunting expert and is always in search of unique adventures that challenge both him and his gear. He has hunted all seven continents and considers himself blessed to have experienced so many cultures. T.J and Vanessa share a real passion for Africa. They have hunted the Dark Continent five times and have not only taken some great animals but also shared their harvest with and brought humanitarian supplies to those less fortunate in some of Africa's most remote regions. He is, however, still proud to call Canada and all its incredible hunting opportunities home.
