Cole Barthel

Cole Barthel, 33, from Rayville, LA is a co-owner of Resistance Media LLC, a producer and host of Simmons Sporting Goods All Things Hunting. Coles obsession of hunting comes from being introduced to the great outdoors at a very young age by his father. Hunting to Cole means enjoying God’s creations and making life long memories with family and friends.

Matt Garrett

Matt Garrett, 29, from Morrilton, AR is a producer, videographer, and photographer of Simmons Sporting Goods All Things Hunting.  Matt still works a normal job, but makes the most of the time spent in the outdoors whether it be behind the camera or behind the gun.  “Hunting is not always about the kill, but making memories with family and friends that last a lifetime.”

Nick Andrews

Nick Andrews, 37, from Sterlington Louisiana is a producer and cohost of Simmons Sporting Goods All Things Hunting.  Nick was raised in southeast Arkansas in the heart of duck country, in a family that valued faith and the outdoors, so naturally his passion for hunting runs deep. From his family land in the Louisiana delta, to the midwest, chasing trophy whitetails is a priority early each season for Nick.  This year Nick and Kyle will have the opportunity to hunt the early muzzleloader season in Central Kansas together, hoping to catch a trophy buck in the milo or bean fields.  While chasing whitetail and turkey are definitely something Nick enjoys, he is driven by his passion for waterfowl hunting.  The daily grind of chasing ducks in the flooded timber and fields of southeast Arkansas is what he most looks forward to each year.  A husband of 15 years, a father of 4, and a bi vocational pastor, Nick values faith and family first and hopes to never take for granted the privilege that we have been afforded by God to enjoy the outdoors in the way that we do.

Anthony Virga

Anthony, 31, grew up in rural Northern New Jersey in a very “outdoorsy” family.  Like others he has been hunting anything he could get a tag for since a very young age.  As he got older the passion for hunting are stronger, especially turkey hunting.  Starting from sanctioned calling contests and at the grand national level, filming, even studying endless hours with books and video of the wild turkey.  With this he also chose a path in outdoor video production.  From freelance work with national television producers, he has made sure to make every ounce of a new experience a stepping stone to making his promotion techniques more superior.  Taking it very seriously the past few years this journey has led him to broader horizons with great experiences including award winning film and co-producing on various projects.
