MEET THE HARDCORE PURSUIT TEAM


 

 Meet the dedicated, addicted and downright crazy bunch of hearty outdoorsmen from the NORTH that make up the HARDCORE PURSUIT TEAM. This group of YOOPERS is totally dedicated to producing an exciting and adventurous outdoor television show. Each season we spend 6 straight months hunting and working hard to capture some of the most scenic and rare outdoor video imaginable. Meet the HARDCORE PURSUIT TEAM....

  MIKE PELLETIER, HOST - HARDCORE PURSUIT
The host for HARDCORE Pursuit has been an avid outdoorsman since he was 10 years old.  His dream came true when his friends from HCP asked him to host the show, thinking that now he really has an excuse to be in the woods 24/7 – 365 days a year!  He’s totally dedicated and seriously addicted to the outdoors, trophy big game hunting and chasing migratory fish.  With nearly 30 years of hardcore hunting and fishing experience, he’s really starting to perfect his skills and make the most out of his time afield.  On the weekdays, Mike is a dedicated General Sales Manager for a television advertising company, working many locations in the mid west. He also enjoys exercising, remodeling and spending time with his great family.


 


MIKE RASMUSSEN, CO-HOST - HARDCORE PURSUIT
Mike, known by all involved with the show as “Mikey” is a diehard hunter.  As a Co-Host, the poor kid has many nick names due to the fact that he’s also named Mike – like Mike P.  We call him Mikey, Jr., Number 2, anything other than his real name!  He practices shooting his bow more than anyone we know.  He’s also the HCP Food Plot Expert, spending countless hours on a tractor planting our plots every season.  Mike is an electrician by trade.  When he’s not planting food plots or scouting for tree stand locations, he enjoys working on engines, enjoying life in the U.P.....Eh!




 
RYAN COUSINEAU, EXECUTIVE PRODUCER - HARDCORE PURSUIT
Ryan is the head “IT Guy” and Executive Producer at HCP.  He’s responsible for filming and editing the shows.  If the HCP Team is on a trip, Ryan is always along to film the adventure.  His dedication to the show has season 5 looking like season 14.  You don’t want to miss the masterpiece he’s created for our fourth season.  Ryan is a full time producer of HARDCORE Pursuit.  When he’s not deep in thought, staring aimlessly at the edit suite he enjoys biking, traveling, fishing, hanging out with friends and volunteering as a Fire Fighter in our community.





 


BEN BEGRES, FIELD PRODUCER - HARDCORE PURSUIT
Ben is totally dedicated to getting the perfect shot and capturing each and every move made by the HCP Pro Staff.  Ben usually makes several trips each month during that special time of the season.  He’s always up for any challenge or adventure with the HARDCORE Pursuit Team.  By day Ben works for his family business, traveling around the world restoring terrazzo in airports.  He’s a great guy and we’re happy to have his awesome attitude on every adventure!




 

JEREMY CASE, PRO STAFF - HARDCORE PURSUIT
Jeremy was raised on a farm in South-Central Wisconsin and was born into hunting. He has passed the hunting tradition on to his own family and enjoys watching them harvest animals in particular whitetails. Always helping out others in the world of hunting Jeremy has taken things to the next level which has included guide services, taxidermy work and traveling around the country in search of trophy game. Surrounding himself around the outdoors has allowed Jeremy to have great success in harvesting world class animals. HARDCORE Pursuit is the definition of Jeremy also known as BIG TIME because he never goes after it half speed!!





AARON DOBBS, PRO STAFF - HARDCORE PURSUIT
Aaron was introduced to hunting by his friend after graduating from college in business management. After purchasing and leasing additional land totaling over 3000 acres Aaron and his friends started an outfitting business specializing in harvesting trophy whitetails. Learning strong management tools and knowing how to get the best potential out of every property has paid off in his own success for harvesting animals. These skills in the field of hunting, food plots, stand locations, ponds, wind direction, much more along with his patience, passion, and persistence, known as the 3 p’s, have made him a successful hunter. Although he loves to hunt and travel with HARDCORE Pursuit, his main love is of his family. Wife Joanie, daughter Kennedy, son Langdon and of course dog Roxy.

Outside our awesome team of characters that work real hard to make HARDCORE Pursuit happen. We'd like to take time to thank the many folks outside our team of dedicated YOOPERS, like our SPONSORS, FAMILY, FRIENDS, LANDOWNERS and OUTFITTERS.  None of this would be possible without your awesome support! 
Thank you from TEAM HARDCORE PURSUIT!
