Celebrating the Journey of Ralph & Vicki: Over Two Decades of Wilderness Adventures and the Future of Outdoor Storytelling

May 7, 2024

DENVER /OUTDOOR SPORTSWIRE/ – In an industry where change is the only constant, Ralph & Vicki Cianciarulo, who have multiple series on Outdoor Channel, have remained at the pinnacle of outdoor broadcasting, sharing their passion and adventure with millions. With more than 20 captivating years on Outdoor Channel with their series Archer’s Choice and The Choice TV with Ralph & Vicki, the couple has delivered unforgettable moments, from record-breaking hunts to intimate wilderness experiences. Yet, it’s their recent adventures alongside their son, RJ and his soon-to-be-wife, Aubrey, that resonate deeply, offering a fresh, generational perspective on the great outdoors.

Now, as they celebrate the Outdoor Channel’s 30th anniversary, they open up about their favorite moments, the evolution of bowhunting, the impact of Outdoor Channel on the hunting community, and their plans for the future.

“Looking back, there are so many memorable moments, but the adventures shared with RJ and Aubrey, outshine them all,” shared Vicki Cianciarulo. Their experiences, ranging from Vicki’s significant 200-plus-inch whitetail to Ralph’s impressive mule deer he finally connected after a significant stalk, have set the stage for a multitude of wilderness adventures across the globe.

Reflecting on the evolution of bowhunting, Ralph points out, “Change is constant, and thankfully, it has mostly been for the better.” They emphasize the importance of staying true to oneself amidst advancements in technology and the influence of social media on hunting practices. “We have always stayed true to ourselves and wanted to have all the viewers know they too could do this,” shared Ralph. Their partnership with long-standing brands has lent authenticity and relatability to their show, making the lifestyle accessible to families and encouraging a deeper connection with nature.

The Cianciarulos underscore the pivotal role of the Outdoor Channel in bringing hunting and outdoor activities into mainstream discussion. “From the early days when we all got together in a small room to eventually being in a huge theater at SHOT Show with real entertainers, awards and other media channels talking about what we all do, its been an amazing journey. We all must try to keep this lifestyle protected and educate those who don’t….. we have to maintain teaching, sharing and showing how much fun it is and how it can help shape your lives if you stay connected with the outdoors! Outdoor Channel has played big part in helping this discussion continue,” concluded Ralph Cianciarulo.

Looking ahead, the dynamic duo is exhilarated about sharing more adventures with their audience, especially with the inclusion of RJ & Aubrey. “This fall, we are heading into some major wilderness adventures… and we promise to keep it as real as ever,” Ralph promises with excitement. “There are very few who started back when we did and being the first hunting couple then to all watching as our son, RJ, from day one grew into a true sportsman and now to share all this with him and his future wife, Aubrey, who didn’t come from a hunting family background, but has embraced it wholeheartedly. We are not going anywhere, but we cross multiple generations from those loyal fans of ours from years ago to the next generation who are following RJ and Aubrey, and we will do our best to keep this lifestyle strong for all,” concluded Ralph Cianciarulo.
