Kurt Walbeck has spent his entire life pursuing his passion for the outdoors. Growing up in the north woods of Wisconsin, his father [former National Champion Stock Car Driver, Marlin “Shoes” Walbeck] saw to it that he was introduced to hunting and fishing at a very early age.
A high school All-Star athlete in Football, Basketball and Base ball, Kurt went on to play college football as a wide receiver and punter. After graduating from college with a Business degree, the younger Walbeck followed in his famous father’s footsteps, racing Stock Cars professionally with the ASA/AC Delco National Tour. It was during these years that Kurt met and married his wife Karla and started a family.
Walbeck is currently the Host of Outdoor Bound TV on ABC and between filming duties for the TV show, guiding and outfitting, he spends nearly 250 days a year in the outdoors. To say that Kurt Walbeck is living his dream, would truly be an understatement.
