Meet Wes David

Wes David was born and raised on a cattle ranch in central Albert and has called Airdrie, Alberta home for the last 14 years. Former professional bull rider turned professional walleye tournament angler, outdoor writer, and host of Fishing the Wild West TV, a fishing show dedicated to angling throughout the western provinces and the northern U.S. States.

Wes spends about 125-days on the water each year fishing, videoing, and researching information for magazines, TV, and conservation efforts. Wes has videoed and written magazine articles covering all freshwater species of fish and fishing for them and many saltwater species. Articles and videos also cover wildlife and fisheries, fishing gear, outdoor youth, and future conservation.

Wes is a big believer in conservation, educating about Canada’s fisheries and wildlife, and getting our youth involved in the outdoors.

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.
