Dean Trumbley is a former professional biologist and a proud father of five children. Dean grew up in the southern interior of British Columbia, Canada and started hunting and fishing at a very young age with his father and grandfather. Dean is no stranger to the hunting and fishing industry as his grandfather Smokey Trumbley was a hunting/fishing celebrity on TV, radio and in the newspapers from 1970-1980’s. As a biologist (trained in both wildlife and freshwater fisheries), Dean has conducted over 75 studies and also worked at the federal and international levels including a 3-year period with the Canadian delegation on the United Nation’s – Convention of Biological Diversity. Besides being a biologist, Dean also was a professional big game in his earlier years. As one of the Hosts for Bushnell’s Trigger Effect, Dean brings a unique skill set to the show as an accomplished research level biologist with a strong compliment of big game guiding and life-long hunting experience.
