Have you ever been on a hunting trip with a person who later became famous in the hunting world? If so lets hear about it.

For me it was the first season I switched from the gun to archery gear. I got a few tips from a young guy about an area near Pikes Peak that held elk. My buddy and I went in spent a few days hunting it. Later the tipster showed in camp so we shared camp and a few days in the field. We got into a few elk. We shot a few 3d's together but later went our own way.

I do remember seeing quite a commitment to hunting in this person, but I don't think I expected to see him being such a well known figure.

So Who is it? Our very own "The Elk Reaper"

Aron congrat's. It always nice to see someone having success in an area they have so much passion for.

I'll second the nod for Aron. On your way, keep up the great work. Great to see a fellow Soldier making good in the hunting industry!

I use to run into a fellow; always some big ideas,.. wanted me to put in with him on one deal,.. I just thought he's way to much of a flunky, lacked common sence and in many cases ability. He had no shortage of big ideas, and pie-in-the-sky dreams and seemed more talk (definately more talk) than walk. A big self promoter at the time. He just never gave up. A number of years back my brother called while on a business trip, "Hey you will never guess who I just saw on TV?"

Has his own show, you see him in adds for a number of products Ive seen his name brought up a number of times on different forums. He's done well, and good for him

I shared camp with Fred Eichler once before he got popular.

Who was it Big D?

27-Jan-11
I spent a month in Alaska with Bigdan. Great guy. Also on the same trip, we ran into Larry D. Jones and his son. There was a rumor that Ted Nugent was just a few miles down the road from our camp. No one even cared to go see him! LOL!

Saw Jim Zumbo last year filming some background shots for a TV show. Right off the road no less! I just waved and kept on driving.

There was a camera man from North American Hunter that was taking still shots up by the National forest campground I take care of. Over by my horse corrals there is this large boulder. He had some dude poseing on top of the boulder kinda like a minute man statue. The camera guy was lieing down on the ground trying to get a good upward angle shot. I bout laughed my tail off.

I spent 20 years in hunting camp with famous hunters and a couple governors and one, I'm pretty sure, hooker.

When did Elk Reaper become famous? I must have missed that part. He'll always be just a big kid who hunts and shoots better than most, to me. ;-)

BTW, he's only half the size he used to be, and probably a lot healthier, too.

Back in the mid 80's Big Dan used to come to our annual archery shoot in Thompson Falls,Mt. Back then he was just some guy from the other side of Kalispell that liked to hunt elk..... Oh wait he still does... somethings never change!

Was the Hooker the girlfriend of the Governor? Seemed to be a lot of that going on in new york a while back...

Saw Jim Zumbo bounce an arrow off a wall, then stick it in the back wall of an archery shop one time. He was so embarrassed that he put his bow away and left as fast as he could. Maybe that's why I only see him rifle hunting on T.V.

twojump .... "Who was it Big D?" I was worried about being called on it,.. and maybe shouldnt have posted. From what I can see he has worked hard and done well, and I wont take that away from anyone. I still wont post his name,.If you and I ever met I would share ,.. More intresting to me that he did as well as he did.

Had a drink this month with Kelly Harris, his hot wife and the kids, Medicineman, Redman and Greendeem. Great guys and would share a camp with them anyday. Oh yeah hunted antelope with M.R. James and spent some time in Africa with E. Donnall Thomas, Jr. Insulted Tom Nelson in Yellowknife, NTW, shared a flight with Bob Foulkrod, peed in the same trough with Ted Nugent, and hunted hogs with Ahunter55 (needs to update his handle to Ahunter68).

well i dont like to brag but.................. i consider myself quite an accomplished hunter hahahaha just kidding, i guess im famous for some things haha, but my hunters safety teacher was Bruce Cull and ive seen him hunt with none other then Ted Nugent himself, and im proud to say it too!

I met Ted Nugent in an archery shop once and listened to him speak to a pretty good size crowd. Sometimes I think he's a little over zealous, but for the most part I think he is a well spoken proponent for our sport and it would be hard for most anti-hunters to argue his points.

From: Leadspreader
28-Feb-11
I agree with Elkida 100%, Ted Nugent has done a lot for hunters, even if you dont like him, hes done more then a lot of us can dream of.

I know most...and some I like! "The Big Head Syndrome" of a few don't impress me and some of the 'celebs' I'd never hunt with!..."You can fool some of the people some of the time, but not all the people all the time!"........

I would share a camp with Mitch Rompolla and Noel Feather though........

The five "celebrities" I would like most to share a camp with are as follows..in this order:

1) Mike Mitten 2) Aron Snyder 3) Dwight Schuh 4) Larry D. Jones 5) Cameron Haines

arctichill, I like your list. It'd be fun as heck to spend a week on a mountain hunting with any of that crew. I'd love to bend Mike M's ear... Mike Eastman would also be fun to share a campfire with.

In my mind there are "famous" and "celebrity" and there is a difference, usually having to do with their agent or publicist. Or just simple self-promotion.

Met and hunted with a several "celebrity" bowhunters. Some not as famous much less as good as their egos would have you believe. Several were real nice folks. You could see how they were popular. At the top of my list of celebrity bowhunters I think I would like in camp but never met would be Fred Eichler.

Have met, hunted and talked on the phone with several "famous" bowsiters, Bigdan and Jake probably more along the lines of famous outside our little group.

But none that I can recall that weren't famous already before I met em. But I still have few years left in me I hope.

That means one thing. Some of you guys better get off your butts and get busy! Despite the rumors, I ain't gonna live forever. You got some road to start makin' up.....

....hunted with a number of notables, but the one I remember the most was just meeting Fred Bear at the airport in King Salmon back in the early 80's...we talked about our hunts (he and his group had a pile of caribou and moose antlers!)...true gentleman of the sport! ...but I can say one thing for sure..all the others I've hunted with including govenors, rock stars, writers (you too, Charlie R.), and TV personalities, all put their pants on the same way the rest of us do and for the most part, love the hunt the way we do!!
