He got his start on Dream Season, Working Man, and became a member of Whitetail Fix for two seasons.

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.
Some of Chris Ward’s greatest memories as a child were hunting with his dad and grandad in the Blue Ridge Mountains of Virginia. He has always loved everything about the outdoors and hunting quickly became one of his greatest passions. Chris began filming with Eric Hale professionally with Drury Outdoors in 2003. After six years they branched out and started Legends of the Fall on the Outdoor Channel, where they remained for five years. Like the seasons, Chris and Eric felt it was time for a change and wanted to try something new, something different, which was to tell stories with our hunts and let the viewer live the hunt through us, both good and bad. Chris continues to be a Probation and Parole Officer for the state of Virginia as well as owner/auctioneer of the Dawn Auction Company.
