Popular US Hunting Show to Feature Cold Lake

Northern Alberta is known for many things: hunting being near the top of the list.

Cold Lake will reap the benefits of it in a couple weeks when Fowl Life, a hunting TV show from the United States, will feature the Lakeland city in two episodes next season.

Clayton and Crystal Charlton own Take-em Outfitters, a business based in Cold Lake that takes people from all walks of life on dream hunts.

They presented to the City of Cold Lake a sponsorship deal to get more involved in the project after being approached from Fowl Life.

“We get asked every year by multiple different television shows from all over the world to make an episode for whatever they do,” said Clayton Charlton.

“We’re definitely wanting to put Cold Lake on the map. They’re going to be involved in the episode. It’s gonna show what Cold Lake has to offer for anybody who wants to visit this part of the world. It puts the taste in their mouth so they know what it is, and then they’ll say, ‘Maybe we’ll swing by there when where in this part of Alberta.’ Plus the social media coverage that follows after that – it’s going to be in front of a lot of people,” he said.

Council agreed to the $20,000 sponsorship.

While filming, The Fowl Life Social is scheduled on Oct. 12 at the Reid Field House where former MMA fighter Dan Henderson is coming for a meet-and-greet, with live music by Leith Loftin and Band, and the local group The Main Street Band.

Tickets went on sale Friday night on Ticketmaster.

Fowl Life is shown on the Outdoor Channel south of the border and “is for every hunter who takes their passion seriously.”
