Earlier this year SCI announced a new partnership with outdoor television host and world class musician, Nick Hoffman. Tag Soup host Chip Hunnicutt caught up with Nick at the SCI Convention to talk hunt shopping and playing fiddle with Charlie Daniels.
As the host of the award-winning television series Nick’s Wild Ride on the Outdoor Channel, Hoffman travels the world in pursuit of hunting adventures. His show encapsulates so much more than just hunting, emphasizing both the culinary aspects of wild game preparation and the cultural importance of hunting to the places he travels. SCI will be a primary sponsor for season five of the show. The show won the “Best Conservation” award at the 2018 Outdoor Sportsman Awards and has been awarded or nominated for numerous other accolades.
In addition to being a highly skilled hunter, Hoffman is a talented musician and his TV show regularly includes clips of him sawing on a fiddle. He co-founded The Farm, a 3-piece band that has produced multiple top 40 radio hits. Prior to striking out on his own, Hoffman has shared the stage with some of musics biggest names including Kenny Chesney, Tim McGraw, Keith Urban, Brooks & Dunn, Trace Adkins, George Jones, and many more. At the recent 48th Annual SCI Convention in Reno, Hoffman made a special appearance onstage with The Charlie Daniels Band. Hoffman has a brand new solo album due to be released this summer.
Hoffman has been an SCI Life Member since 2017 and his name appears in the SCI Record Book as well, with a mountain lion harvested in Montana checking in at #16 all time, and #10 with a handgun. In December of 2019 he completed the Spanish Ibex Grand Slam.
