Fred Burgstahler graduated West Milford High School in 1984. After High School, Fred went to work with his step dad, where he learned the profession of blasting and gained licenses in multiple classifications of explosives. His step dad has since passed away, but he continues the tradition in the blasting field. Fred grew up in an outdoors family, traveling throughout the US and Canada hunting and snow mobiling. He enjoys spending his spare time away from the business, in the outdoors with his two sons. In 2004, Fred got a unique break and started filming professionally for outdoor TV Shows where he honed his filming skills. Many of Fred’s film clips have aired globally and seen by millions. Still living in West Milford, NJ with his wife Cathi Lynn and two sons, Allen and Craig, he really enjoys passing on the outdoor tradition to his sons. He thanks his wife, Cathi Lynn, for her support in his life’s passion.
