Think you’re tough? See how you compare to these legendary Canadian adventurers

Arguably Canada’s best-known hunter and outfitter, Saskatchewan-born Jim Shockey is adventure personified. He has hunted for some of the most exotic and dangerous species on the planet, and in some of the world’s most remote and inhospitable locations. In all, he’s taken more than 350 different game species in more than 45 countries across six continents—often with cameras in tow for his top-rated hunting shows, Jim Shockey’s Hunting Adventures and Jim Shockey’s Uncharted. “It’s about never fearing the unknown,” the 58-year-old says in the trailer to Uncharted. “You can’t go to these uncharted parts of the world without accepting some measure of risk, but that’s life.”
