Cameron Hanes    

Outdoorsman & Bowhunter

With a passion for hunting the wild, pure backcountry and a love of the written word, Cameron Hanes's greatest love is bowhunting the remote wildernesses of the West and Alaska.

For a glimpse into Hanes’s passion for bowhunting, look no further than his training regimen for his backcountry bowhunts. To get ready for bow season, in addition to shooting his bow every single day of the year, he trains in the weight room 7-days a week and runs 100-mile ultra marathons in the mountains during the off-season in an effort to toughen up for the mental and physical test that he’ll face in the backcountry. His goal, which he knows is a target he’ll never hit, is to become the “Ultimate Predator”.

Setting this type of standard, raising the bar to this level, pushing his body to failure and beyond, inspires many and inspiration is basically what best defines Hanes. He has motivated thousands of hunters through his writings, television appearances and social media postings.

Bowhunting the toughest animals in the roughest country out there is as difficult as it gets, which is why Hanes's life is devoted year-round to preparation. He trains intensively for that one, split-second chance to land an arrow on the mark. More often than not, one chance is all he gets when bowhunting in front of the camera.

The motivation Hanes has is magnetic to hunters, and non-hunters alike, who read about and watch his undertakings. He has also been featured at widespread hunter’s gatherings including being the keynote speaker at many annual bowhunter banquets, hosted TV shows, been featured in TV commercials, self-published two books, produced DVDs and has released a line of popular hunting/fitness clothing. Devoting himself to learning and honing hunting techniques and ramping up his physical prowess has made for an exhilarating career for Hanes. Outdoorsmen have come to respect his knowledge and look forward to his stories and fitness advocates appreciate his drive to be the very best he can be and push others to do the same. Hanes has based his life and career around the things he loves: writing, self-improvement, photography and filming, his family and bowhunting the backcountry.
