Deer Hunters Wanted.  

Aug 8, 2015

Meet Dean Capuano, host of the Outdoor Channel's Swarovski Optics Quest.  You'd think that a host of a TV show might have one different path to television, but this one is a bit different.  Dean started his hunting passion in the heart of the smallest state in the union, Rhode Island.  After an amazing college hockey career and after being drafted by the Boston Bruins, a career ending injury eliminated the path to professional hockey.   Thanks to a call from his sister, Dean started a job as a customer service rep for Swarovski Optics, and the rest is history.  Dean shares the details with us.
