Wade Middleton developed a passion for the outdoors early in life, growing up in southern Oklahoma where he hunted and fished the public lands around Lake Texoma and the Red River. His fondness for those activities led him to pursue studies in fisheries management and wildlife conservation. Over the past 20 years Wade has worked full-time in the outdoors’ industry working as a hunting guide and outfitter in Texas, Mexico and the Southwest, while also fishing a variety of national tournament trails and other regional events. Wade has been noted many times over as one of the most knowledgeable outdoorsmen when it comes to the southwest parts of the United States in both fishing and hunting.
He currently is the president of CarecoTV where he oversees the operations and production of numerous outdoors events and television programs such as American Outdoors, Fisherman’s Handbook, Fishing and Hunting Texas, Deer Gear and Chronicles of the Hunt. What does he do on the rare occasions when a day-off comes along? “I go hunting or fishing,” he says with a laugh. “Being outdoors is my life.”
