About The Authors

Although our authors Chad Belding and Chad Mendes have taken different paths to get where they are now, their paths have definitely come together with their shared passion for the outdoors and being hunters and the process of living off the land.

Chad Belding is a lifelong sportsman and outdoors enthusiast whose love of the lifestyle was instilled at a very young age by his father Orville Belding. Orville ensured that both Chad and his brothers Clint and Clay were encouraged to evolve an appreciation of the outdoors at every turn, teaching them to camp, hunt, fish, crawdad trap and even cut down their own Christmas trees. Chad’s passion eventually led him to predator and waterfowl hunting, leading him into competitive duck and goose calling. For there Chad’s involvement into the waterfowl industry grew and he started a successful waterfowl hunting gear and clothing company called Banded and soon after a waterfowl hunting tv show called The Fowl Life, which is currently The Outdoor Channel’s #1 waterfowl hunting tv show.
