Ron Schara’s Minnesota Life Outdoors

Discover the gentle humor and astute observations of a true outdoorsman as he shares stories of natural wonders and personal revelations, family traditions and triumphant treks in beloved midwestern landscapes.

Ron Schara has long been a voice for the midwestern outdoors, as a writer for the
Minneapolis Tribune and through his adventures—accompanied by his black Lab, Raven—on the popular Minnesota Bound TV show. His storytelling is inspired by childhood excursions along the Mississippi River as well as later and numerous encounters with wildlife from Minnesota to Manitoba and beyond. Whether hunting squirrels or turkey or whitetails, whether pursuing walleye on Opening Day or retelling fishing yarns, Schara captures the sensory thrills and restorative solitude of being out in nature.
