As the host of Reaper Outdoors, Ron Bellan, Call sign “Reaper 01”, has a lifetime of hunting, fishing and survival skills. As a Navy SEAL for over 25 years, he learned a variety of skills that added to his skillset as an outdoorsman and survivalist. He grew up with little money and lived off the land. “We didn’t always have electricity or running water, but we were always clean, warm and had food on the table. Our Parents taught us respect for people and Mother Nature. We learned how to live off the land and to take only what you need and let Mother Nature hold what you need for later. Food, Water and Shelter drive us during the show.” The kill is the final icing on the cake. When we are done we butcher, pack and bring what meat we don’t eat in the field back to our homes and share our bounty. Being a Navy SEAL is a part of who I am, but is not how I define myself. I wear my bird with pride, but utilize my skills learned as a young man and the skills I learn today.
