Kip Campbell - Red Arrow
Kip grew up in the country near the banks of the James River in Central Virginia and spent his days bow hunting, fishing and playing sports at Fork Union Military Academy. Kip knew early on he wanted to work with a weapon in his hand, so the military, law enforcement or pro-hunter were the only jobs that would be acceptable in his mind. The last option seemed pretty far fetched... seeing as how he didn't come from a "big buck" part of the country and had no tie in with a hunting companies.
Although today the Red Arrow crew hunts all over the world, Kip still lives in the small town of Fork Union and frequently hunts some of the same ground he hunted as a kid. He wants to see Red Arrow TV become bigger, better and more entertaining each year. More importantly he wants Red Arrow viewers to understand just what hunting and living in the country means to everyone involved with Red Arrow. He lives for the thrill of killing animals with his bow and enjoying the outdoors with family and friends.
Welde's Big Bear Show
A family pet has historically fallen into the category of dogs, cats, mice and sometimes even an exotic snake or other reptile. The Welde family, however is the exception. Their pets are cuddly, cute, furry, and, within the family, quite lovable. They are definitely not your average pets. To most people these are considered wild animals and rightfully so. The Weldes, however, have made their bears their pets. These pets range in size from 200lbs to 1200lbs and are in demand in fairs, festivals, theme parks, corporate outings and many other events.
The Welde's training methods are based on developing the natural and unique talents of each individual bear through patience, reward, love and understanding. The relationship between man and bear must be one of mutual respect. The Weldes goal is to educate the public through entertainment to promote the preservation of some of God's most beautiful and important creatures; "Welde's Big Bears".

Jack Pulah - Our 30th Annual Show Wildlife Artist of the Year
Artist Jack Paluh (pronounced pa-lew), resides in Northwestern Pennsylvania in the small borough of Waterford
with his wife Marian and their three children. Jack was a “constant doodler” from the time he was old enough to
hold a pencil. His teachers recognized Jack’s talents early and encouraged him to continue developing his art skills
following high school. But being young, Paluh had other ideas, and found work as a truck driver.
His life changed drastically however, in the autumn of 1982, when he was injured in a hunting accident.
