Born to a hunting family, Steve Ecklund grew up in the remote parts of northern Ontario, Canada and the thrill of the hunt has been a lifelong obsession since a very early age. He is a nationally recognized archer as winner of the 1999 gold medal at the Canadian national 3D Archery championships.
Steve decided to focus on his hunting career at the pinnacle of his shooting talent. One of few Canadian Cabela’s ambassadors, he has earned an unparalleled reputation as a fair chase hunter. Although he is an archer at heart, he enjoys all hunting opportunities, including black power and riﬂe hunts.
This year, Steve has realized that not only is hunting his passion, but also a motivational life saver. Recently Steve was diagnosed with cancer, treated, and now in remission. Steve was well enough to travel to Alaska in seek of a Dall’s Sheep for Season 6 of The Edge. It was in Alaska that Ecklund “slapped cancer in the face and made some great friends along the way.”
Jeff Coyle was born in Lethbridge, Alberta, and has loved the outdoors all his life. He learned to hunt upland game birds from his father, and graduated to big game hunting with great success pursing Southern Alberta whitetail. He is now obsessed with chasing big game in the Rocky Mountains. For Jeff, there is nothing better than climbing a peak to see what’s on the other side. As Wild TV’s Business Development Manager, he loves to meet new people, and pass on his knowledge and passion for hunting. He also hosts Wild TV’s Gear Hunters.
Turning his passion into his career, Scott Stirling is the Vice President of WILD TV as well as an avid and experienced hunter. Scott’s energetic personality and love of trying new technology make each Edge episode entertaining, engaging and educational. As one of the original hosts of The Edge, his return to the show will bring a different perspective, and family dynamic as he hunts with his family and friends worldwide.
