HARD-CORE Pur-suit [hahrd-khor per-soot]
- Unservingly committed; The uncompromising dedication to the act of pursuing in an effort to secure or attain wild BIG GAME.

MEET THE HARDCORE PURSUIT TEAM


 

 Meet the dedicated, addicted and downright crazy bunch of hearty outdoorsmen from the NORTH that make up the HARDCORE PURSUIT TEAM. This group of YOOPERS is totally dedicated to producing an exciting and adventurous outdoor television show. Each season we spend 6 straight months hunting and working hard to capture some of the most scenic and rare outdoor video imaginable. Meet the HARDCORE PURSUIT TEAM....

  MIKE PELLETIER, HOST - HARDCORE PURSUIT
The host for HARDCORE Pursuit has been an avid outdoorsman since he was 10 years old.  His dream came true when his friends from HCP asked him to host the show, thinking that now he really has an excuse to be in the woods 24/7 – 365 days a year!  He’s totally dedicated and seriously addicted to the outdoors, trophy big game hunting and chasing migratory fish.  With nearly 30 years of hardcore hunting and fishing experience, he’s really starting to perfect his skills and make the most out of his time afield.  On the weekdays, Mike is a dedicated General Sales Manager for a television advertising company, working many locations in the mid west. He also enjoys exercising, remodeling and spending time with his great family.


 


MIKE RASMUSSEN, CO-HOST - HARDCORE PURSUIT
Mike, known by all involved with the show as “Mikey” is a diehard hunter.  As a Co-Host, the poor kid has many nick names due to the fact that he’s also named Mike – like Mike P.  We call him Mikey, Jr., Number 2, anything other than his real name!  He practices shooting his bow more than anyone we know.  He’s also the HCP Food Plot Expert, spending countless hours on a tractor planting our plots every season.  Mike is an electrician by trade.  When he’s not planting food plots or scouting for tree stand locations, he enjoys working on engines, enjoying life in the U.P.....Eh!




 
RYAN COUSINEAU, EXECUTIVE PRODUCER - HARDCORE PURSUIT
Ryan is the head “IT Guy” and Executive Producer at HCP.  He’s responsible for filming and editing the shows.  If the HCP Team is on a trip, Ryan is always along to film the adventure.  His dedication to the show has season 5 looking like season 14.  You don’t want to miss the masterpiece he’s created for our fourth season.  Ryan is a full time producer of HARDCORE Pursuit.  When he’s not deep in thought, staring aimlessly at the edit suite he enjoys biking, traveling, fishing, hanging out with friends and volunteering as a Fire Fighter in our community.

 

 

                                      

 

Outside our awesome team of characters that work real hard to make HARDCORE Pursuit happen. We'd like to take time to thank the many folks outside our team of dedicated YOOPERS, like our SPONSORS, FAMILY, FRIENDS, LANDOWNERS and OUTFITTERS.  None of this would be possible without your awesome support! 
 
Thank you, from TEAM HARDCORE PURSUIT!
