Ralph & Vicki Cianciarulo
Chances are you’ve heard of Ralph Cianciarulo. Ralph bow hunts for a living in many places throughout North America and into Africa and Russia, from places that we are all familiar with, to places that grab a hold of you when you’re not looking and then don’t let go for another forty years. His house is a taxidermist’s paradise; lions, deer, bears, cape buffalos, elk, caribou, moose, zebra, and countless other trophies line the walls.
Ralph is co-host of the number one bowhunting television shows on the Outdoor Channel, ARCHER’S CHOICE® and THE CHOICE. Ralph discovered bowhunting at a very young age and has held it close to his heart ever since. He has taken a dream from an early age and made it a reality -- hunting all over the world; bowhunting nearly everything you can imagine. From owning his own pro shop to where he is today, he knows what it takes to make it happen. Traveling year round, and through the seminars, DVD’s and the TV show that reach millions of people, Ralph’s message has never changed, ‘It’s more important to promote the sport of hunting to the entire family, no matter what the weapon you choose, just hunt!’
Ralph is more interested in promoting the sport of hunting than just seeing his name up in lights. He believes that if we promote the sport, all will prosper, instead of just a few. Ralph Cianciarulo, an international bow hunter, TV personality, seminar speaker, and noted videographer, is a man dedicated to teaching and instructing thousands of people on the sport of archery and hunting.
In January of 1997, Safari Club International recognized Ralph’s video work by giving him the "Outstanding Bowhunting Videographer" of the year award. Ralph’s experience and knowledge come from the wildlife habitat itself, not from text books. He learns daily, right from the highest authorities in business…the animals themselves. Ralph enjoys sharing this knowledge with many sportsmen and women.
"When I do something, I do it with a lot of intensity. I feel you need to give more than 100% of yourself to live out your dreams."

Talking to anyone in the industry, they will tell you that Vicki & Ralph with all their success, have never changed and have always remained as they were from the beginning.
"It’s not about all the hype—we are not trying to be something we’re not, we are just hunters who are blessed to make a living doing something we are so passionate about. It’s not about how great someone thinks they are, it should be about how can we grow the hunting community, how can we share with everyone the thrill of the hunt and adventure, how do we keep it real, exciting and most of all get the family’s involved. That’s what we think it should be about!”
"Vicki is a full time mother, hunter, TV host and wife, she runs Archer’s Choice Media and she is the real deal and I am so proud of her!"
