Cragg, unlike the other members of Trained Assassins, did not grow up hunting. For Cragg, his passion for the sport of hunting did not come until he was around the age of 18. It wasn’t until he went to college that he would realize everything that hunting had to offer. After having a small dream of producing a successful hunting show, Slade and Cragg began filming their local hunts in Mississippi, quickly they realized that filming hunts would be a part of his hunting experience for as long as he continued with the sport.
As anyone will tell you Slade lives to hunt. He has been hunting as long as he can remember and was able to harvest his first deer when he was only a mere 6-years-old. Slade strives to be the best bowhunter that he can be by constantly training, shooting and learning the game that he is hunting. Bottom line is if his bow is in his hand, something is in trouble.
Born and raised in the small town of Felixville, Louisiana, Blake’s childhood was filled with memories spent in the woods. He took his first deer with a bow at the age of ten and has been captivated by the thrill ever since. To Blake, hunting is not simply a hobby. It is a means for him to connect with the beauty of God’s creation and has shaped him into the God-fearing country boy that he is today.
