When you talk about hunting and promoting it to the entire family, there are two names that always come up, Ralph and Vicki Cianciarulo, ‘North America’s Favorite Hunting Couple’ and hosts of the number one bowhunting television show, Archer’s Choice with Ralph & Vicki and now their new show, The Choice.
Ralph and Vicki have done it all, from owning their own archery pro shop to outfitting for deer, bear and elk, they have worked from the bottom up to earn a reputation that is second to none in the hunting industry. It doesn’t matter to them if their names are up in lights, they would rather continue to grow the sport, than brag about their accomplishments. Their knowledge comes from the highest authorities out there, the animals themselves. They scout, hang stands and do what we all do, just hunt. Ralph and Vicki believe that the best way to learn is from hands-on experience; and their TV shows, DVDs, seminars and articles all prove they are the REAL DEAL! All of Ralph and Vicki’s seminars are done with the finest of video and audio, so the viewers will be locked in their seats and assured total entertainment. They have an amazing ability to connect with everyone that they talk to regardless of their background and each walk away with a much greater appreciation and understanding of bowhunting and hunting.
Through all of their success, Ralph and Vicki have remained unbelievably humble and down to earth as their greatest joy comes from bringing one more person in to the sport of hunting. In 2001, they were blessed with a son, RJ. In January of 2006, RJ took his first animal, a feral hog in Florida, with a Ten Point crossbow. That was the proudest day of their lives, bar none!
Archer’s Choice Media is a family owned and operated business, and has made many great accomplishments. Archer’s Choice with Ralph & Vicki has won the BOWHUNTING WORLD ‘Reader’s Choice’ Award ‘Best Bowhunting TV Show’ three years in a row (2003, 2004, and 2005); this has never been done before. In 2004, Archer’s Choice with Ralph & Vicki was nominated for the ‘Fan Favorite Hunting Show’ Golden Moose Award from Outdoor Channel. In 2005, not only was the TV show nominated again, but won! This award is based on the TV show who received the most votes on the Outdoor Channel website and Nielson ratings. In January of 2006, Cabela’s®, the World’s Foremost Outfitter®, honored Ralph and Vicki by asking them to become part of their exclusive Hunting Pro-Staff.

Starting from humble beginnings as owners of Archer’s Choice Pro Shop in Berwyn, Illinois to outfitting for elk, deer and black bear. The Cianciarulo’s have done it all – from the ground up. They annually travel over 50,000 miles in pursuit of the finest quality game and videography on the planet. Ralph and Vicki Cianciarulo are dedicated to sharing the hunting lifestyle with their viewers.
“It is about sharing the hunting lifestyle and getting more people in the woods. It doesn’t matter the size of the animal, but rather the adventure, the memories and whom you share it with!” Ralph Cianciarulo Says.
Ralph and Vicki, along with their son RJ, are looking forward too many more years of sharing their adventures as they continue to strive for the finest in outdoor programming.
