‘I trust Ripcord to rescue me when I need it the most’
Ripcord is excited to partner with Mark Peterson, as he and Rusted Rooster Media take their television crews to remote and thrilling corners of the globe: hunting for muskox above the Arctic Circle; native bison in Alaska; bighorn sheep in Alberta; desert bighorn, mule deer and coues deer in Sonora Mexico; brocket deer and ocellated turkeys in the Yucatan; tahr, chamois and stag in New Zealand, sheep and ibex in Iran, and others.
Mark developed a love and passion for the great outdoors, growing up in the rolling hills of Oceana County, Michigan. He worked with his family’s fruit farming and processing business, but his real passion was hunting.
At first, Mark’s outings were confined to the wilderness of his home state, starting at a young age, but gradually his horizons expanded to the rest of North America: In 2013, he completed his Grand Slam of North American sheep. That was the same year he decided to leave the family business and pursue work full-time as a hunting outfitter and television host, forming MVP Outdoor Adventures and its production company, Rusted Rooster.
On the shoots for the Sportsman Channel’s “Destination XTreme,” “Cabela’s INSTINCT: Expedition Series” and “The Guides,” Mark and his team will be facing everything from sub-zero temperatures on the frozen tundra and “relishing the pain of sheer vertical climbs up the rugged Canadian Rockies,” as he put it. As a seasoned outdoorsman, Mark recognizes the inherent risks in these outings and so he turned to Ripcord Travel Protection.
“I trust Ripcord to rescue me when I need it the most,” he said.
