Sharon Dudley – AKA Shazzy Fresh
My wife Sharon is a UK native and although I introduced her to shooting a bow, the archery is in her English blood since well before my time. Sharon is someone who has given me the best days of my life as well as gotten me through my worst. She is a great example to what a family can be if the lady of the house embraces and supports what everyone is doing. Sharon isn’t the camera ham that I am and opts to be behind a camera much more than in front of it. She is my sidekick and takes most of the same steps as I do each day. She puts in the time and practices with me when I’m out in the yard. She trains with me in the gym and is my watchful eye behind the camera and video lenses. Coming from the UK Sharon was never exposed to hunting and like many people in the UK saw it as cruel and unnecessary. However, after traveling with me and living here in the U.S. she sees the importance of wildlife conservation and how hunters act as population control. I am proud to say she has been enlightened and is a dedicated huntress. She kept an open mind and supported my lifestyle. They say behind every good man is a good women, I would argue that and say beside every good man is a good women, not behind. When time allows for Sharon to be away from being mom she gets out in the field, hunting on her own. She has some awesome hunts for season 2.
FYI - Shazzy Fresh was a nickname I gave her because of her rapping skills. For those of you who know her wouldn’t believe this to be true because of her proper English etiquette and shyness. But I have heard her fresh beats and they are sick! She would never bust a rhyme for a stranger though, sorry!
We call him Lil' Dud. He is quite the entertainer and has some wicked mojo with a soccer ball so I said he is always in High Definition hence “HD”. I got him started on a bow at age 7 when he would come out and practice with me and carry my gear. I didn’t start until I was 10 so he might be way ahead of me by the time he is older. He enjoys shooting instinctive which I am proud of him for because I was never really good at that. I taught HD how to hunt on his Playstation by buying him the game Cabelas Dangerous Hunts. We went through all the basics of wind, stealth, aim and squeeze. When he was 8 he came with me on his first hunt alongside dad and I let him navigate me to take a doe. At 9 he took his first deer down in Mississippi with a perfect heart shot. A year later he took his first buck. Right now he is consumed with school and growing up but whenever he gets in the mood he will climb a tree with me or flings arrows in the yard.
|Waylon Byers - AKA Stitch. Waylon is a Iowa native that bleeds hunting and the outdoors. During the day he hammers it out at his family construction business then heads to the timber every night. Waylon is always good for a laugh and comes up with some crazy things sure to leave you in stitches. Stitch is serious about whitetails and is even more obsessed with them as I am. He has shot some awesome bucks and will bring some great hunting strategies to this season on the show.|
|Pete Clendenen - AKA Iceman. Pete is a hardworking tradesman that is passionate about using his spare time to get out and enjoy being a hunter. He and Stitch are always building new stand locations, planting food plots or scouting big bucks. Pete never leaves home without an igloo cooler loaded with some cold ones on ice. Hence the name Iceman. Pete, Waylon and Dustin are the guys that I am around nearly everyday. These are my hometown friends that I know are true to the sport and will bring some authentic hunts to the show.|
|Dustin Olsasky - AKA Donk. Dustin is a local buddy of mine that I teamed up a few years ago. We farm together and work together getting our properties set up for hunting. Dustin is a hard working farmer dude in our community and I really appreciate his qualities. This season Dustin will make some appearances on the show and you will surely see more of him in the future. Many shows may have a lot more "celebrity" appearances but at Nock On we are all about the everyday people that love archery and bowhunting. Dustin is a perfect example of that.|
|Jamie Hackett - AKA Gun show. Jamie is a soft spoken dude that has grown up with his brother Justin living in the outdoors. He is a former dedicated body builder and knows all about commitment and perseverance. He and Justin never give up and continue to get it done as bowhunters. They are a natives to South Dakota and hunt on public land and private spots that they have from knocking on doors. These brothers are a great team that i feel the everyday bowhunter and weekend shooter can relate to.|
|Justin Hackett - AKA Hammer time. Justin is all about American pride. He spends long hours building fire trucks to serve some of America's finest. He spends every spare second hunting with his brother and his kids. If its not hunting season then he is hammering on a 3D range somewhere. I met Justin and his brother many years ago at a 3D archery shoot. We shot a few targets together and quickly realized that because of archery we have alot in common. I am really happy to get these guys in front of the camera and feel it will bring a great family element to the show.|
|Dean Thornton - AKA Crazy D. Dean is a great guy i met years ago at one of my archery seminars in Canada. Dean is the definition of of an archery nut. I feel really proud to have him contributing to the show. Dean is at the archery shops everyday and at an archery tournament nearly every weekend. He lives archery and breathes archery and is 110% all the time.|
|Antoine Vialetay - AKA Hack. Antoine is the creative talent behind Nock On TV. What I see in my mind Antoine can build on a screen and the value of that is priceless. I have known him for a long time and really admire his passion behind archery. In addition to his editing skills he is a competitor as well as a technical writer for archery. He loves everything about this sport and is more in the loop than I am most of the time. Although he is missing some fingers and his Nock On hand sign is a little jacked up he is capable of running circles around other editors with the two fingers he does have.|
