Ron Schara Productions
Ron Schara’s story proves dreams do come true. Back in 1995, Ron, an outdoor beat writer for the Minneapolis Tribune, thought his love of outdoor story telling could be turned into a television success story. Inspired by news programs such as 20/20 and 60 minutes, Ron brainstormed an outdoor adventure program and got to work. The title? Minnesota Bound. The star of the show? A six-month-old black lab named Raven. Ron’s way with words instantly touched the lives of all who watched, and the Minnesota Bound story was born.
As Minnesota Bound grew in popularity, so did Ron and Raven. He suddenly found his work on television, on radio, in newspapers, and even an annual Ron Schara calendar. Ron Schara Productions quickly grew and the company found itself creating outdoor television programs for channels such as ESPN, The Versus Network, The Outdoor Channel, The History Channel, The Fox Sports Network, The Sportsmans Channel and most recently, Discovery Channel. The cast of television personalities also grew with the addition of Ron’s daughter, Laura, “The Man About The Woods,” Bill Sherck; Jared Christie; Lindsey Hayes; Travis Frank and more.
