WADE MIDDLETON, PRESIDENT – CARECOTV
“Being outdoors is my Life!”
Wade Middleton developed a passion for the outdoors early in life, growing up in southern Oklahoma where he hunted and fished the public lands around Lake Texoma and the Red River. His fondness for those activities led him to pursue studies in fisheries management and wildlife conservation. Over the past 20 years Wade has worked full-time in the outdoors’ industry working as a hunting guide and outfitter in Texas, Mexico and the Southwest, while also fishing a variety of national tournaments and regional events.
Wade has been noted many times over as one of the most knowledgeable outdoorsmen when it comes to the southwest parts of the United States in both fishing and hunting.
He currently is the president of CarecoTV where he oversees the operations and production of numerous outdoors events and television programs such as American Outdoors, Fisherman’s Handbook, Fishing and Hunting Texas, Deer Gear and Chronicles of the Hunt. What does he do on the rare occasions when a day-off comes along? “I go hunting or fishing,” he says with a laugh. “Being outdoors is my life.”

FRED EICHLER, BOWHUNTER
”Bowhunting is a Way of Life!”
Fred Eichler is a man of personal achievement. His passion for bowhunting has taken him all over the world in pursuit of his next adventure. Fred truly believes that any animal with a bow is a trophy. His personal quest to complete the North American Super Slam with a recurve bow reflects that state of mind. In mid August of 2009 Fred harvested a cow Tule Elk to become the first to take all 29 North American big game animals with a recurve bow and complete the Super Slam. Fred has been fortunate enough to share his love and enthusiasm of the sport with fellow bowhunters across the country through his television shows and personal appearances.
“Wherever my adventures take me, Michele or our family, our coolers are always perfectly cool with Arctic Ice. This has been a great addition to our hunting camps and around the farm-it’s not wet or messy, saves us money on ice and is re-usable for a lifetime!
– Fred Eichler

Known as the “MAESTRO” In the world of Turkey Thugs.
I pack my cooler with Arctic Ice Alaskan Series when preparing for a long trip out to the woods to keep my meals and drinks chilled to the exact temperature for days. After the kill, I use the Arctic Ice Tundra Series to transport my bird home safely in proper frozen conditions required to prevent spoilage. I recommend Arctic Ice for your cooler, “It’s what I always Keep in mine”

I always keep my cooler with me in the truck. With Arctic Ice Alaskan Series, I can keep more items in my cooler for longer periods. As a professional guide and outfitter, Arctic Ice Alaskan Series makes my job easier as it lasts for days. By keeping a few extra in the freezer I’m always ready for the next hunt. After a successful hunt and the processing is complete, game frozen, I recommend Arctic Ice Tundra Series for the long trip home. It’s unique ability to maintain extreme frozen conditions and preserve the meat in an environmentally non-toxic state is great. And it’s reusable! Get some for your cooler, it’s bitterly cold.

When I head out on the water i am prepared for extreme conditions. With the severe heat of our summer days I cannot afford to lose points & fish to overheating. I regulate my live well with Arctic Ice Tundra Series 5 lb. plates. They reduce the water temperature more gradually and last much longer than traditional ice. In addition to the performance of the Tundra Series, I also erase the possibility of the chemicals & chlorine in the ice from blending with the water and harming the fish. Arctic Ice is an extremely high performance resuable ice packaged in a rugged container. I also used the Alaskan Series daily to keep my drinks and meats cool and safe. Arctic Ice gives me the advantage I need to finish in the lead.

2 Time FLW Redfish Champion
FLW Redfish Champion
Fernandina Beach, Fl
Growing up in SWFL I have had the privilege of fishing our local waters my whole life. Growing up fishing in fishing the flats is where I have spent most of my time. Sight fishing is my favorite way to fish our waters from either boat or kayak, as nothing gets the blood going like watching the fish eat your presentation.

Hi, my name is Chris Noffsinger, I have a love and passion for the outdoors that has been with me all of my life. The only thing more important than the outdoors is family. At home there is my wife, Brenda, two children, daughter Morgan and son Wyatt. I am a full time outdoorsman from Traverse City, Michigan. I spend my entire year in pursuit of several different types of game. I chase trophy Smallmouth Bass from May to September then come to Kansas in pursuit of monster whitetail deer, ducks and geese October thru January. I started hunting in Kansas when I was stationed here in the military in 1993. I fell in love with the hunting opportunities that Kansas provides and have been coming back ever since. I look forward to meeting new people, making new friends and trying to turn dreams of trophy fish or animals into reality for clients. The Arctic Ice family of products helps me keep my clients food and drinks cold and is great for keeping fresh game cold all the way home!
