Born and raised in Saskatchewan, growing up in the outdoors, hunting was a way of life for Anthony Springer. Starting at a young age and slowly working his way up in the outdoor industry, his dream became a reality when he created Wheat King Productions in 2010. He began his filming career working as a free lance videographer for Rob Dunham of Nosler’s Magnum TV. Over the course of three years, these filming adventures would span all of North America, Africa, Asia and Eastern Europe.
In 2012, Anthony teamed up with Cody Robbins of Live 2 Hunt. Cody played an instrumental part in developing Anthony’s skills as a “spot and stalk” style hunter. In 2014, Anthony ventured out on his own, creating his first production, “The Other Life”.
In 2015, Anthony and long time friend, Tristen Clarkson, purchased their first outfitting business and formed Wheat King Adventures. Located in Northern Saskatchewan, this 540 sq. mile Black Bear territory has some of the best hunting and fishing the province has to offer.
At only 23 years of age, Anthony has spent what already seems like a lifetime in the outdoors, creating many fond memories and special relationships along the way.
Rich and Sandi Mellon are the hosts of Trapping Inc and Outdoor Quest TV, two top rated shows airing on Wild TV. Trapping Inc. is a glimpse into the world of real trappers - and friends - not the contrived people and situations of Hollywood reality TV series. This TV series is about real people living, working, and trapping in the wild. Rich and Sandi have a registered trapline in Northern Alberta. They live the life in a remote cabin where there is no power, other than a generator, and they heat with wood that they cut. The bathroom renovation this year meant Sandi got a new outhouse. It's tough out there; Mother Nature puts on a show every season and they wouldn't have it any other way.
For Ed, knives are tools and are all about the edge. He views his knives as an investment in the future and a legacy to be passed from one generation to the next. Every Storch Knife is a hand-made tool of exacting workmanship. Ed stands behind his work and tests each blade for edge geometry and edge holding ability. All knives are then meticulously sharpened according to their intended use. To create his knives Ed prefers to use tools of his own making.
Ed’s will take you through the knife making process and the forging process in his sessions. In his knife making session Ed will turn an old cultivator spike into a knife. During the forging session Ed will turn a coil spring into a punch and chisel.
