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 Michiganâ€™s upper peninsula to build his own log cabin and launch his professional trapping career. Questioning parents and confused friends maybe didnâ€™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 and coyote, beaver and otter as well as 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 television show.
An accomplished bowhunter, Miranda has taken over 50 whitetails on video and has taken the all 29 North American Big Game animals with archery tackle, being the first bowhunter to have documented the archery SUPER SLAMÂ® on video. If itâ€™s big game bowhunting, Miranda likely has achieved it including African Elephant, Hippo and Cape Buffalo.
As an outdoor television producer, Miranda is known as one of the best. His award winning series have appeared on ESPN for 20 consecutive seasons as well as on numerous other networks. Using creative story telling supported by dramatic footage and creative editing, Tom Mirandaâ€™s series continue to sit atop the Nielsen television ratings at each network his series appear. Miranda has produced nearly 1000 individual TV episodes in his long broadcast career and knows the inâ€™s and outâ€™s of the Television market place.
Tomâ€™s latest TV venture is â€śTerritories Wildâ€ť a fast paced hunting documentary that chronicles Mirandaâ€™s adventure bow hunts around the globe.
