Jim Shockey



Jim Shockey has dedicated his life to being a great steward of the great outdoors. He’s an award-winning writer, wildlife photographer/videographer, guide, and outfitter. His hunting experiences include travel to the remotest, wildest, and most beautiful reaches around the world. Jim has hunted in more than 40 countries and on 6 continents, where he has taken over 300 species. During his hunting expeditions, he became the first and only person to complete the “NORTH AMERICAN SUPER SLAM” and “ULTIMATE SLAM” using only a muzzleloader.

We’re proud that for the last 30 years, Jim has put the kind of heart and soul that goes into his passion for the wilderness into his partnership with Leupold. He was instrumental in helping us develop the Leupold UltimateSlam® muzzleloader riflescope among other products, and has been a major advocate of Leupold’s ruggedness. If a Leupold optic can endure one of Jim’s legendary adventures, it’s tough enough for anything else.
