The McFerrins value God, family, friends, community and the outdoors. Raised in the Lone Star State, both Mike and Bonnie take pride in their Southern heritage and deep rooted traditions and beliefs. A family friend introduced Mike to the outdoors in his youth and Mike is just as passionate about his hobby today as he was when he first started hunting! Mike introduced Bonnie to the sport of hunting early in their marriage and she fell in love with the outdoors & immediately started hunting on her own & with Mike as much as possible. Outdoor activities such as hunting, fishing and shooting reflect who Mike & Bonnie are as individuals, therefore they maintain morals based on respect, honesty and authenticity in those activities, as well as in everyday life. Sharing the outdoors with fellow hunters or introducing a non-hunter to the outdoors is a passion they both feel is an important part of the sport and have practiced for many years. The McFerrin’s continually strive to “share the love of hunting” with kids of all ages because they realize the importance of passing down the heritage of hunting to the next generation.
The McFerrins have three children; Christian, MaKenna and Georgia-Kate. All three kids have all been raised in the outdoors and taught the value of hunting, game preservation, land management as well as how to be good stewards of the land. Mike & Bonnie have expressed how rewarding it has been to share their hobby and way of life with their children over the years, and are now enjoying watching them grow into young adults who truly love the sport.
Mike & Bonnie’s hunting career began at Drury Outdoors where they appeared on the Dream Season TV reality series and were cast members on Bow Madness, both on Outdoor Channel. Legends of the Fall was created for hunters by hunters. The hunt begins far before the hunter steps foot in the tree or blind. LOF chronicles the year round process of managing land, running trail cameras & working the ground. For well over a decade Mike & Bonnie have hunted all over North America documenting their big game hunts out West & whitetail hunts all over the Midwest and the South. The McFerrins look forward to the future as they continue to pursue the Legends of the Fall.
