For the Kreuters’, the outdoors were always a part of family events. ”Hunting, fishing, hiking, cross country skiing….it’s just what we did”, says Rick.
After earning a college degree in Physical Therapy and dedicating a few years to that profession, Rick also became licensed as a professional hunting guide in his home state of Wyoming. As the outfitting business grew, Rick stepped away from the Physical Therapy clinic and devoted all of his time to his new business, RK Outfitters.
Life in the outdoors was just what Rick was looking for, however the opportunity to host and produce a nationally televised hunting show came at a surprise. After 16 years of guiding hunters, Beyond The Hunt became the next phase in Rick’s life in the outdoors.
Today, Beyond The Hunt is an award-winning production airing on Outdoor Channel. Not too bad for a kid growing up in small town, USA!
Although hunting wasn’t a priority when she was young, spending time in the outdoors was. ”The ranching way of life is a great way to grow up” says Julie. ”I was either horseback checking cows, driving a tractor in the hayfield, or flying in the super cub with dad checking summer ranges.”
After receiving her degree in Physical Therapy, Rick and Julie were married soon after. While continuing to work in the field of Physical Therapy, Julie also took on some of the guiding and cooking responsibilities of their outfitting business. She is now a co-host of Beyond The Hunt TV.
”As a hunter and coming from a Physical Therapy background, it’s important to me to stay in the best shape I can be”, says Julie. “I love being active and getting out and hiking my legs out from under me! There’s something pretty amazing about your spirit, just when your body says you’ve had enough, you have to tell your mind….more! That’s what I love about hunting, the challenge to do something I didn’t think I could do!”
