Eli Gourdin, Co-Host
As a young boy, I grew up in Utah hunting fishing and enjoying all that the outdoors has to offer. The older I got the more my passion for hunting was evident, no matter the season or the prey I wanted to get out there. The more into hunting I got, the more I tried to challenge myself with different weapons, species and areas. Early on my father could see I had a special skill for learning about my quarry and how to think like they do. The older I get, the more I see a lot of the same things in my children that I did see in myself. Archery has become my passion as well as for most of my family. Hunting has always been more than just about the hunt and being successful, it's been a way of life for me and my family. I hope to continue to pass on a legacy of knowledge and experience to generations to come.
