Host of KSL Outdoors with Adam Eakle
I have been fishing and hunting in Utah’s outdoors since I was able to hold a rod and rifle and I credit my father for instilling a love of the outdoors and the importance of being a responsible outdoorsman.
My great outdoor passions are hunting Elk, Deer and upland game; fly fishing and “dunking a worm with the kids.” In recent years, I became a part-time professional hunting guide; but I look equally forward to being in Utah’s wild with my two sons and two daughters.
I attended Kearns High School and the University of Utah, and now live in Riverton, Utah with my wife Tonya and four children Alex, Madison, Taylor and Ethan.
