Hanes also regards high of Rogan and their friendship. He wrote in 2014, “From this tweet in 2014 to now @joerogan has helped change my life for the better. In 2014 we didn’t know each and now he’s written the foreword for my book and believes in me as much as anyone in the world.”

He added,

There’s a few men who have seen me at my lowest and helped me rise. Roy Roth, my brothers Pete and Taylor, Kip Fulks and Joe. For many years I felt aimless but when people believe in you, even a little bit, things change. Perspective changes, the weight of life is lifted a little from your shoulders and your head lifts, eyes go from the ground to the horizon and eventually to the mountain tops. Sometimes all it takes is a tiny nudge and momentum shifts. Now days, that nudge can come from places like social media. So, because I know how many of you might feel, consider this the push you need and want to change your course a couple degrees. Like a ship turning around in the ocean it doesn’t happen all at once, it happens little by little. Day by day with consistent effort and focus, eventually you can be on a completely different trajectory.

A Short Bio Covering Cameron's Age & His Broken Family Life

A native of Eugene, Oregon, Cameron Hanes was born on October 2, 1967, to a cheerleader and a star athlete, Bob Hanes. His parents were divorced when he was just five years old.


He and his younger brother Pete were very hurt, and they wanted nothing more than the reunion of their parents.

Their mother remarried, and Hanes hated his stepfather. So he moved in with his father but missed his brother, who opted to live with his mother as he was still a toddler and was attached to his mother.

Later Hanes moved in with his mother because living with his father became tough. Bob was busy with his work, and Hanes was missing his brother dearly.


When Hanes was 15 and Pete was 12, their stepdad took them rifle hunting, trying to extend an olive branch of sorts.

Eventually, Hanes went out on his own and became a hunter—a successful one at that. However, he was not excited about hanging out with his stepdad as he thought it would be disrespectful to his own father.

Let’s Find Interesting Facts About Cameron’s Life and His Unique Job

Born and raised in the remote backcountry, Hanes’s greatest love was bowhunting in the remote wildernesses of the West and Alaska. Hanes's best friends Roy Roth and Bob were the most important people in Hanes's life, but sadly, he has since lost both of them.


Hanes was attached to his buddy Roy Roth who was also a bowhunter. It was Roy Roth who got Hanes into bowhunting as rifle hunting wasn’t that challenging to him.

Likewise, he had a lot of respect for his own father, whom he refers to as his hero.

Hanes was devastated when his father Bob Hanes died in 2010 due to cancer, and buddy Roy died in 2015 when he fell while stalking a Dall sheep.


Overcoming the pain from the past, Hanes lives a life of adventure, success, and danger.

In addition to shooting his bow every single day of the year, he trains in the weight room 7-days a week and runs 100-mile ultra marathons in the mountains during the off-season to toughen up for the mental and physical test that he’ll face in the backcountry.
