From humble beginnings as a school boy trapper, Tom Miranda has taken his love of the outdoors and turned it into the career of a lifetime.
Running trap lines near his home town of suburban Columbus, Ohio Tom learned the ways of the wilds. Catching muskrats, mink and raccoon Tom learned to love nature in these early years, and to respect and cherish it.
After high school, when many graduates went off to college, Tom was off to the wilds of Michigan's Upper Peninsula to build his own log cabin and launch his professional trapping career. Questioning parents and confused friends maybe didn't understand, but Tom Miranda knew that his life pursuit was found along the streams and in the wild places.
Rambling around the snowy northern woods, Tom learned to catch fox, coyote, beaver, otter, bobcats and bears furthering his wilderness education.
Several years later, Tom found himself in South Dakota, working as a government trapper and hunter mastering the art of trapping and honing his skills.
These bold steps have since led to authoring 5 books, over 60 how to trapping and hunting videos and eventually the chance to host his own adventure show. In 1992, Tom became the Adventurous Saturday morning bowhunter on ESPN.
Now after almost two decades on ESPN, Tom Miranda is on Versus with Thompson Center's Whitetail Country.
