Hello my name is Shannon Parks and currently living in south western Ontario. I have lived most of my life in Eastern and Northern Ontario however my job as a Police Officer moves myself and family around.
I have always been a huge fan and enthusiast of the outdoors. I was brought up living on a farm and love everything about it especially the family time. With a huge family we all love our time at the family hunt camp to enjoy the outdoors bonding time.
I have been extremely fortunate to be very successfully in the outdoor hunting industry. I'm currently a ProStaff member with BloodyWaterBoyz "BWB", Adrenal and Sweet Bear Bait Suppiles "SBBS".
I have been using SBBS supplies for the past 3 years and cannot say enough about these baits. I was fortunate to be introduced to these baits and have never looked back.
I've been extremely successful in taking three BC record black bears the past 3 years and owe it all to SBBS alpha pellets.
As an outdoors person I love trying new things in the hunting industry but will not support something that doesn't work. SBBS is an honest, reliable, hard working, truthful and dedicated company and the product speaks for itself.
My father introduced me to hunting at 8 years old and I have never been the same since. From that time to this very day my every thought was and is consumed with hunting. My one true love is chasing whitetails but you can't do that all year long so 11 years ago I decided to try bear hunting to pass the time between deer seasons and quickly became obsessed by it.
It's a heart pumping adrenaline filled hunt that is easily one of the most exciting hunts you can do...you are hunting the hunter! I hunt spot and stalk, over bait and farmers fields, all are my favourite I can't pick just one! I have yet to be shut out in a bear season since I started chasing them with my biggest being a sow I took last spring with my compound bow that weighed in at 574 pounds field dressed with a 20.5 inch skull.
In the last three years I have been obsessed with hunting giants and I have managed to take a Boone and Crocket bear each year throughout that time. Head on over and check out our TV show In The Crosshairs Hunting Tv to both see pictures and videos of our exciting past bear season and this upcoming spring hunt! I look forward to sharing tips, tricks and stories with you all!
Growing up, our family vacations always took us out west. I have many fond memories of seeing bears in their natural habitats and remembering how beautiful they were. Little did I know years later that I would become obsessed with them. I love everything bear hunting — Planning, studying their habitats and behaviours, strategizing and considering wind patterns and thermals and their diets. I’ve hunted bears all over Canada— Out West, Out East and in Northern Ontario, but I prefer to hunt close to home in Central Ontario. Through the help of great friends coupled with the support of my family and the flexibility of my career, I have been fortunate enough to spend a great deal of time in the bear woods. For me, bear hunting isn’t about the kill. It’s about the friends made, experiences earned, lessons learned, respect for yourself, respect for the animal and the discipline acquired while taking in the surroundings.
SBBS has always supported my hunts with the best scents and baits around. I enjoy the conversations about tips and tactics with the staff here and I am happy to be a part of such an amazing group of hunters as dedicated to hunting as I am.
