Shaine was born and raised in the great state of Montana. He learned how to hunt and be a good steward of the land from his father at a very young age. Shaine harvested his first big game animal at the age of 13. Since that first hunt, Shaine’s passion for hunting and spending time in the outdoors has only grown. The life lessons Shaine learned while growing up in the woods from his family and friends are the foundation of his life today.
Shaine is an avid hunter, fisherman and sports enthusiast. He considers himself to be a huge adrenaline junkie and believes that no goal is too high to attain. Throughout his life he is always setting new goals, proving that with hard work, any goal can be accomplished. His travels have allowed him to hunt from Alaska to South Africa and many places in between. Shaine has been recognized by some of the biggest companies in the hunting industry and has been documented in many outdoor publications. Shaine believes that hunting isn’t about how big of rack an animal has, but the adventure you have when spending time hunting.
Raising a family of his own now, Shaine hopes to be able to instill the love of the great outdoors in his children the same way his parents instilled it in him. He loves spending time with his girls in the woods, teaching them how to enjoy and respect all that God has created. All his girls love spending time in the outdoors exploring and learning what it means to be an outdoorsman. Some of his greatest memories with them are seeing the excitement in their eyes when the animals are close and they can experience the hunt for themselves.
One of Shaine’s goals is to bring the hunting heritage to as many families as he can. He hopes to be able to show others what it means to preserve the land, harvest wildlife and conserve nature for future generations. It is this goal that has led to the production of Silent Draw Outdoors. Now that Silent Draw Outdoors is prime time network show, Shaine wants people to see the hunt through his eyes and hopes that he inspires people to get out and live their dreams like he is every time he hits the woods.
