ABOUT THE FOUNDER ROB ARGUE
I have dedicated my entire life to the outdoors, it is truly where I belong. During the past 3 decades, I have had the pleasure of working in various positions leading me to where I am today. I was a Conservation Officer for 20 years, owned an archery pro shop for 7 years, was Director of Operations and Outreach for the Quality Deer Management Association of Canada for 3.5 years and have been a guide and the owner of 2 hunting and fishing lodges for the past 12 years.
It was July 2010 when I officially launched Eastern Canadian Outfitters. Today, I operate from 3 locations: lac Mer Bleue, Lac Camachigama and leased properties in Eastern Ontario providing hunting and fishing adventures for hundreds of clients each year. With 65 000 acres of land between 2 provinces, there is an adventure waiting for everyone.
Although my passion for operating these establishments continues to grow each year, I had a vision to take the business one step further. Over the course of my professional life, I’ve observed many people wanting to try hunting or fishing but either don’t know where to begin or have tried modestly and want to upgrade their knowledge and skills. New Outdoors was born for them! I realized I could share my passion and experience to open a new world for many around me. EXPLAIN, EXPERIENCE, EXPLORE…that’s what New Outdoors is all about. That’s what I’m all about!
