Over the last 25 years, I have traveled the world in search of adventure and the desire to document important conservation stories. Our show, “Hard Truths of Conservation”, has taken us to the far corners of the world and is aimed at informing and educating the general public on the importance of conservation through hunting.

When my parents, Dick and Mary, and uncle Jim, founded Cabela’s in 1961, they did so with the intent of bringing great products at affordable prices to outdoor enthusiasts. But it was their commitment to conservation and customer service that stuck with me at an early age. I look at what Jim Winjum has done over almost 20 years and see much of the same core values. No one said building the “World’s Foremost Outfitter” or Kenetrek with a commitment to quality and service was going to be easy, but both companies founders believed—rightly so—it would be worth it.

Having now set foot on six continents and over 30 countries while filming 200+ days a year, good gear is a must for me. Early in my mountain-hunting career, I learned the hard way the importance of taking good care of your feet. It is one of those things you only let happen to you once, and vow to never again.

From hunting sheep and goats in the mountains of North America, Asia, and Europe to elk, moose, and mule deer in the West, I’ve put my Kenetrek boots through the paces. They’ve been the one piece of gear that’s been constant for me as long as I can remember, and I have no intent on changing.
