Eric has grown up as a child in the Blue Ridge Mountains of Virginia and literally lived outdoors. His family spent a lot of time chasing whitetails and wild turkeys as well as catching big rainbow trout in mountain streams and smallmouth bass in the great New River. Eric and his friend Chris Ward began filming professionally in the outdoor industry in 2003. Now, Eric Hale is ready to share his passion of hunting on a new series called Red Rising airing on Sportsman Channel. Eric continues to work as a State Parole officer and has been a Volunteer Fireman for the City of Galax, the town he lives, for 17 years. Eric lives for the outdoors and the chance to take his family on new adventures every day.
