RYLAND FAIRWEATHER

I was born and raised in London, Ontario and recently moved 20 minutes south to St. Thomas. I am engaged to my amazing fiancé Christina! Without her support I wouldn’t be able to do the things that I love to do!

 
I was a late bloomer when it comes to hunting. I didn’t have anyone in my family that hunted or even owned a firearm, although I always knew I had a passion for the outdoors growing up and would spend most of my free time fishing. I still love to fish, however, hunting quickly became my biggest passion. I began hunting 10 years ago when I was 20 and haven’t looked back since.
 
In that time my passion grew into a love and that love grew into a business, well a few businesses actually. I began guiding 6 years ago where I worked for a friends company for my first two years then opened my own guiding service, Fairweather Outdoors. This has been an incredible experience, getting to take new hunters out and see their reactions when everything comes together!
 
Currently I sit at the chairman of the Forest City Delta Waterfowl London Chapter. Giving back to the hunting community as well as doing my part as a conservationist is extremely important to me!

Growing up in BC luckily had me hunting at an early age in Mule Deer and Moose country, so I had a head start when I moved to Alberta, into a heavy whitetail habitat, the edge of the Pacific Flyway for waterfowl, and more coyotes than you could imagine. I'll never turn down a chance to hammer some heavy Alberta coyotes.


I spent a few years guiding whitetail, predator and waterfowl clients, and have just recently switched my attention to getting my you kids into the outdoors a little more every year.
I've been fortunate to have a great support at home, allowing me to spend hours and days each year doing what I love. I'm honoured to be joining the Scorpion Team, and I can't wait to share my adventures with you all.

Growing up in the lower mainland of British Columbia, no one in my family hunted anymore, however growing up listening to stories from my grandfather of his time in northern Saskatchewan drew me towards it. Fishing was my gateway to the outdoors as I had a short walk to coastal streams.

 

After high school I joined the Canadian Armed Forces as an Infantry Soldier and was posted to the 3rd Battalion Princess Patricia’s Canadian Light Infantry in Edmonton, Alberta. I served for 11 yrs and deployed 3 times to Afghanistan before releasing from the military. After leaving the military my family and I stayed in area, it was after returning from my second deployment is when I really started hunting and it quickly turned into my passion. I’ve been lucky to not only be able to bow hunt in the Edmonton Bow zone but have other opportunities in this amazing province.

 

I am blessed with an amazing wife who supports my passion and two children who enjoy going hunting with dad. As well as a great group of friends and mentors who pointed me in the right direction. Now getting to Share my passion with others is something I truly enjoy doing.
