Jim Shockey joins us today to discuss his lifetime of adventure as a hunter and outdoorsman who has traveled and hunted all over the world and taken game with just about every hunting method known to man. Rifle, archery and even big game with air rifles. We also discuss his new book, “Call Me Hunter” and a ton more.
Jim is a renowned Canadian outdoor writer, wilderness outfitter, and television producer known for shows like “Jim Shockey’s Uncharted” on Outdoor Channel and Sportsman Channel. A retired member of the Canadian Armed Forces, he held the rank of Honorary Lieutenant-Colonel with the 4th Canadian Ranger Patrol Group. His hunting expeditions have taken him across six continents and 50 countries, earning him the title by Outdoor Life magazine as “the most accomplished big-game hunter of the modern era.”
Born in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan, Shockey moved at 17 for university, where he was an All-American swimmer and later joined the National waterpolo team. He participated in two world championships but missed the 1980 Olympics due to the boycott against Russia. Early in his career, he modeled for Vogue and released a hit song “Howl With Me.”
A leading expert on Western Canadian Ethnocentric Folk Art, Shockey collects global tribal art. His collections are showcased in the “Hand of Man” Museum, which he founded and attracts over 25,000 visitors annually. Married to actress Louise since 1984, they have two children, Branlin and Eva Shockey, and four grandchildren.
