Place Title: Pure Instinct OutdoorsPlace Description:
Hunting is an age old tradition dating back to the beginning of time. The need to survive was not taught, it was learned. The landscape of hunting has evolved to mean more than survival today. The modern hunter is not fighting for survival from natures beasts and starvation, but rather fighting for the right to continue to take part in something that burns within them. We fight for the privilege to be able to conserve the land and animals that define what nature is all about. The lessons and values learned through this process make us better and heals us from the inside as we leave the world behind and enter into a wild and untamed place. We are drawn, even called to the outdoors by pure instinct.
Pure Instinct Outdoors is a group of passionate hunters from the Mighty Peace who capture their hunting adventures. Showing their ups and downs in every season. They are currently the top rated weekend show on Wild TV. Many of their episodes feature the Mighty Peace. The cast also hunts all over North America from grizzly bear Alaska to alligators in Louisiana.
An outdoorsman his whole life, Scott spent much of his childhood hunting with family since a very tender age. Upon reaching High School, Scott was becoming a talented caller for Moose and was known for luring them as early as Grade 9. From these days of early morning spot and stalk Mulie hunts with his bow before school, to the recent pack hunts for days and weeks on end, he continues to stalk northern Alberta big game with his bow.
After connecting with numerous trophy animals, he started to challenge himself by filming his hunts, bringing this innate passion and wealth of hunting experience to Pure Instinct Outdoors.
Being a producer of the show and now father to 3 beautiful girls keeps him just as busy as the tree stand but he still finds a way to capture the best game every year and bring that amazing hunting experience to you in your home.
From Beaverlodge Alberta, Scott is known to have climbed more mountain tops and spent more nights under a spruce tree than just about anyone. Hunting all over Alberta as he grew up, he’s traveled across North America and the world while hunting many different species of game but always returns to his true passion of Elk and Sheep hunting in the Wilmore wilderness.
Currently based in central Alberta with his girlfriend Bailey and their collection of Horses, Dogs, Cats and possibly Yaks in the near future, Scott is following his life-long dream of hunting and harvesting game, bringing you great footage from the hunts that means the most to him.
Scott’s brother Dustin was also raised in the family tradition of outdoor life. Starting so young that he can barely remember brief moments of situations in the bush with his dad and brother, he likes to say that “Hunting seasons don’t seem to have a start or a finish. We prepare for them all year round, from one open season to the next.”
His most vivid memory is harvesting his first Moose with his father. That experience taught him the value of the hard work required from tracking to harvest, the techniques and old-style teamwork which have grown to be as part of his day to day life.
“Hunting brings people together and keeps them together. I chose this route and look to pass on the enjoyment that I get from hunting to the others around me and those watching on WildTV. It’s creates a bond between young and old and everyone can enjoy.”
