Micah Shanser - Group Regional Director

Micah.jpgMicah was born and raised in Northern California, where he grew up exploring the backcountry by foot, bike and on skis. Although he didn’t have hunting mentors in his family, they spent a lot of time skiing, biking and camping. “My family taught me a lot about the woods and adventure,” Micah said.

“My first job was at a local outdoor shop in Squaw Valley, and I started hunting and fishing in college,” Micah explains. He went on to earn a Master’s in Wilderness Therapy and, after college, began guiding backcountry trips for at risk teens in Oregon, Washington and Utah. During his off weeks he worked at a wilderness survival school in Bellingham, Washington. 

Micah and his wife went on to found Restorative Adventures, an outdoor school that taught classes on hunting, tracking and ethnobotany. Today he operates a group of Neurofeedback clinics (“Amazing Brains”) helping people with traumatic brain injuries, PTSD, learning disabilities and peak performance. Micah hunts with bow, rifle and shotgun. He lives in Silverthorne, “right on the boarder of unit 371 and 37.”
