Minnesota Bound - NBC / Kare 11

Ron Schara, and his trusted black lab, Raven, began sharing stories of the outdoor lifestyle back in 1995.  Minnesota Bound is the show that started it all for Ron Schara and he quickly found a passion for putting his words onto the television screen. Today, it remains a trademark program and is now running over 600 episodes strong.  This show is more than just a hunting or fishing program.  We seek characters that have a story to tell.  We seek out destinations and find out what makes them special.  We share the love of outdoors and those that enjoy it.  Yes, it's fishing and hunting, but it's also camping, hiking, canoeing, archery, bird watching, ice climbing and so much more.  Minnesota Bound is a fan favorite winning several hundred OWAA awards during its lifespan, including 11 Emmy Awards.
