Meet your host for Canada In The Rough….
“With respect and appreciation
for nature, we work hard to ensure our wilderness
and wildlife are conserved for future generations.”
Host of Canada In The Rough™
Your Canada In The Rough™ host is Thomas
Pigeon, a man whose passion for the outdoors is matched
only by his deep and abiding respect for the natural world.
Highly respected, camera savvy and experienced,
Thomas brings his viewers unparalleled adventure, outstanding
videography and exemplary insights into the wildlife that
makes its home on the last great North American hunting
frontier - Canada.
Fluent in both of Canada's official languages
and founder and CEO of one of North America's premier branding
and marketing agencies, Pigeon* Branding + Design, Thomas
is one of those rare breeds whose urban sophistication and
business acumen is in equal contrast to a broad set of finely
honed outdoors skills. Thomas is as comfortable in the bush
as he is in the boardroom!
from life-long experience, Thomas says, "If more urbanites
could spend time hunting and fishing, they would establish
a deeper relationship with nature. With a connection to
our natural environment, people have a greater sense of
who they are and their place in the world. With respect
and appreciation for nature we work harder to ensure our
wilderness and wildlife are conserved in perpetuity."
Thomas's life-long love of the outdoors was seeded as a Boy Scout and fueled by his father's passion for hunting and fishing. Thomas is the founder of a national hunting and conservation advocacy group and a principal behind the creation of the Young Hunter Education Scholarship Program (YHES). Thomas is also a passionate and articulate orator with extensive media experience and a much sought after speaker throughout Canada and the U.S.
When it comes to hunting, Thomas sums up his life-long relationship with our great wilderness this way: "Whether walking in the bush to simply observe, or with bow in hand stalking a buck through the first autumn snowfall, the outdoors is my sanctuary."
hunting interests include upland game and migratory birds,
but his primary passion for big game has taken him throughout
North America and beyond. He is practiced in the disciplines
of archery, muzzle loading and rifle marksmanship. He is
a life member of several hunting organizations including
Safari Club International, Rocky Mountain Elk Foundation,
Ontario Federation of Anglers and Hunters, Pheasants Forever
the National Rifle Association, and he is a Sponsoring Benefactor
of Delta Waterfowl.

we invite you to spend a few episodes with Thomas and the
Canada In The Rough™ team, and before you know it
