McLean Russell is a born outdoorsman, growing up on his family’s Texas ranches, hunting, fishing, hiking and working cattle. He was shooting his red rider almost as soon as he could walk and had his first hog by the time he was six. In the following years hunting became a favorite pastime whether it be duck or quail or an elusive white tail deer. He always enjoys cattle working time, the round up, vaccinating, and sorting the calves, as well as bar-b-queing for the cowboys. He graduated from Saint Mary’s Hall where he became interested in photography, which evolved into filming hunts with his brother, William.
