Meet The Mentor Team:

Sandy & Cal Reed:

Sandy has been hunting for over a decade now and focuses on deer and turkey. To her, hunting is not a sport or activity. It is a philosophy for living one’s life. She is proud to have made her own bows and has hunted successfully with them. She loves to combine the skills of tracking, trailing and hunting into a way of living with the earth.

Cal is a successful and established primitive archery hunter and teacher of the art. He has demonstrated his ability of making a complete archery system from materials directly from the landscape and has been hunting since 6 years old.

One of his major achievements came in 1997 when he took his first all primitive archery gear harvest of a white tailed deer using an osage bow and a cane shaft arrow with a flint tip that he created himself. 

Caleb Musgrave:

What is a ground blind?

Caleb Musgrave is a Mississauga Anishinaabe Woodsman and Hunter. He is a generational hunter who grew up learning his techniques and mindset from his father, uncle and grandparents.

With a background in ecology as well as archaeology, Caleb has a deep understanding of humankind and hunting.

From tracking, to traditional camouflage and scent covering tactics, to ways to make the most use of the kill, Caleb is an experienced instructor with a mental toolkit that covers a little about everything.

Chris Gilmour:

Why people hunt?

Chris has been hunting for over a decade and harvested his first deer with a bow and arrow he made himself. He strives to harvest a significant amount of his families food from the land in a sustainable manner.

Today he hunts a mix of big and small game as well as waterfowl. He hunts with traditional bows, crossbows and firearms.

"Hunting to me is about so many things, it is part of my identity as a human. To me, hunting is about a deep connection to the land, being part of the food chain, providing for my family while being a steward of the earth, and achieving some degree of self-reliance and independence from the modern industrial food system."
