Born in Louisbourg, Nova Scotia, Shane first began hunting the shores of Cape Breton Island with his Father. He learned the art of hunting at a young age, shooting his first duck when he was 10 years old. He quickly became hooked on the sport of waterfowl hunting and being in the outdoors.
Since then, Shane has numerous hours along the east coast shores under his belt. The unpredictable North Atlantic makes hunting these birds a skill: learning to pay close attention to the sea state, tides and wind, long before ever getting close to the ducks. His favorite duck to hunt is Common Eider because of the patience and the understanding required to anticipate their next move.
Shane is a father of 2 girls, Allie Kate and Gracie and a husband to his wife Lisa. He is also an Advanced Care Paramedic for Emergency Health Services in Nova Scotia since 2005. On his days off, he enjoys spending time outdoors with his family and exploring the east coast.
