Ron Schara

TV PERSONALITY, CONSERVATIONIST

Ron Schara's passion for storytelling led him to dream up "Minnesota Bound," an outdoor adventure TV program featuring himself and his black lab, Raven. Ron's way with words has touched the lives of everyone who has watched the show. He has since formed Ron Schara Productions, a small production house that creates eight local, regional, and nationally-televised programs that share the beauty of the great outdoors.

Why Minnesota?
Minnesota is blessed with lakes and woods in the north, prairies in the south, potholes in the west, and bluffs and trout streams in the southeast, plus the father of waters starts here. Need I say more?

What are you most proud of?
I'm proud of the joy I've given people who watched or read my stories. Also proud of my role in restoring wild turkeys into Minnesota. I organized the first MN chapter of the National Wild Turkey Federation and we raised most of the money for DNR's early turkey management program in the 1970s and 1980s.
