Growing up, Tim Anello had a father with an incredible reputation as a producer/cameraman and a family that loved camping, fishing and just about every outdoor sport. He became a natural with a camera and was helping his dad with the family production company from the age of 18 when he got to film his first Bassmaster tournament and became Anello Productions’ chief editor at the age of 22 and President of Anello Productions in 2022.
Tim’s hunting focused on upland birds and waterfowl until they began filming hunts with the idea of a television show. What they captured on camera (not killed) was a hunting experience shared by great friends that spawned a television show concept, now widely known as, Inside Outdoors TV.
Since 2007 Tim has been the editor, producer, and co-host of this successful outdoor show, sharing hunting knowledge and experiences from across the country with a national audience through professional grade television production.
Shane was introduced to the outdoors by his grandfather and together they chased rabbits, squirrels and deer all over Northeastern Oklahoma. As a teenager Shane, Tim and Matt formed a bond that has lasted to current day with Inside Outdoors TV.
He is a 22 year veteran of the fire service and is still currently serving as a Battalion Chief with the Owasso Fire Department. He has raised two children Kennedy and Wiley to have the same love and respect of the outdoors the he has taught all those years ago. He has been with IOTV since 2006 when the first pilot shows were filmed and is now the Vice President of Sales for the company.
“I believe that once the love of the outdoors is instilled in a person, you see the world with a greater appreciation. Nothing brings us closer to God then being on a mountain top when the sun rises or watching the sunset across the glass calm water."
Taught by his dad at an early age, Matt grew up hunting in Oklahoma. For him it has never been about the taking of the animal, but the reset of each day in the outdoors. Sitting in a tree stand has always been his favorite way to find his center, his inner peace.
Matt was a part of the original IOTV crew, dating back to 2006. After several years away, he’s back with his brothers doing what he’s passionate about-creating memories.
He loves sharing his passion and appreciation of the outdoors with his daughters, Gracie and Maddie, and wife Deb. “Hunting is a lifelong skill that should be freely shared, so don’t be stingy …”
Dusty has been a part of the outdoors his entire life. His Grandpa and Dad began to take him along small game hunting, deer hunting, and fishing very early in life. He grew up in a small Missouri Ozark's town hunting and fishing anything that was in season with his Brother, Dad, Grandpa and friends. He has had a passion for the outdoors for as long as he can remember. A passion that he plans to pass on as a father to his little girl.
Dusty met Tim and Matt while guiding deer hunts in Northern Missouri after graduating from Oklahoma State University with an Agriculture degree in 2007. Dusty moved back to Oklahoma after guiding hunts in 2008 and the rest is history.
You could say Dusty is the "farmer" of the group. He has been an agronomy sales manager for Land O'Lakes for the last 13 years and operates a farm and haying operation in the Tulsa, OK area with his wife Richal along with the help from his little girl Harper.
“Hunting and fishing to me is more about who you do it with, rather than how you do it. I like to shoot a big deer with my bow just as much as the next guy, its just so much sweeter when you get to enjoy it with the folks you care about.”
The roots of hunting heritage run deep in Calahan’s family. Ever since he can remember, he was chasing his dad’s footsteps to a river bank or in the woods to a deer stand. “I was very blessed to be raised in an outdoor seeking family.”
The morals, persistence, patience, passion and humbleness that he was taught while in the outdoors are some of which no one can find anywhere else. With this opportunity to reach so many individuals, Calahan’s hope is to help many more find the values that he was given and to listen while continuing to learn so he can contribute to this ever so changing world.
