Deer Hunters Wanted.  

Nov 12, 2016

Growing up in Cambridge, Ontario, Tim Brent knew from a very young age that he wanted to be a professional hockey player.   He claims that his "do whatever it takes" mentality as the key to going pro.  Today, at age 32,  Tim is retired from a career in the NHL and finds himself in a second career of commercial real estate in North Carolina,  where he and Eva Shockey Brent call home.  As you might imagine, Tim enjoys his deer hunting.  Introduced to the sport by two captains on one of his NHL teams, Tim has enjoyed hunting all over the country.  Despite spending years on the ice and dealing night-in night-out with the adrenaline rush that comes with highly competitive professional sports, Tim says that there is nothing in this world that compares to the adrenaline rush of deer hunting.  Tim shares with us how he first met Eva Shockey, how he is preparing for fatherhood, what hunting in a warmer climate south is like for a Canadian, and tells us a heck of a deer story about a hunt on which he wasn't really supposed to go.
