We don’t often see a Quinquagener who is as sporty as Cameron Hanes. He is a perfect example of the saying “the older the wine, the better its taste”. Cameron is an American multi-talented non-fiction writer, bow hunter, and endurance runner. As for his multi-talented writing, he is also the host for OutdoorChannel’s Elk Chronicles. His hunting skills earned him a sponsorship contract with the popular UnderArmour brand.
Cameron Hanes Bio, Age
Cameron Hanes was born on October 2, 1967, in Eugene, Oregon, United States. He grew up as a city boy in Marcola, a small town in Willamette Valley, Oregon. He is of Caucasian descent and was raised as a Christian.
Hane’s athletics began not only as a runner or archer but during his high school years he pursued several sporting activities. He played soccer, basketball, baseball, and some running.
Over the years, since the introduction and rise of the Internet, the number of participants in hunting has decreased dramatically. Instead of going hunting, people prefer to occupy themselves with their handheld devices. Concerned about this deterioration, Hanes is trying to bridge this gap between hunting and the Internet by using various media platforms to reintroduce hunting and educate people about bowhunting, which is his specific way of hunting.
Cameron Hanes has an active YouTube channel, which is self-titled and which he uses to educate his more than 140,000 subscribers about bowhunting, not only as a profession but also as a sport. His YouTube channel is visited by over 23 million people. He also runs an Instagram site with over 500,000 followers.
Between 2014-2017 he had several guest appearances on the Joe Rogan Podcast. On the podcast, he discussed bowhunting as an adventure and also presented it on an educational front. His podcast discussion contributed to the education of prospective hunters and also served as an introduction for those who never had anything to do with hunting and had no interest in it.
Hanes is not only about physicality and sport, he is also a writer. He is the author of two bestsellers that tell of his masterful skills in bowhunting. The bow-hunting trophy Blacktail, for example, was published in February 2003. At a time when people were looking for information about bowhunting, Hanes decided to share his knowledge about his hobby and profession. The 330-page book is sold at a retail price of $24.95 and $14 wholesale. The book could serve as a step-by-step guide for people interested in taking part in bowhunting. The book provides a guide to bowhunting and covers three hunting regions: The California Highlands, the fertile land of Oregon, and the rainforest of Washington.
Three years after publishing his first book, he then published another bowhunting book entitled Backcountry Bowhunting: A Guide to the Wide Side. The book is designed to inspire budding bow hunters. It gives an overview of strategies, success tips, and equipment necessary for bowhunting in the backcountry. The book is sold for $31.95.
