Scott Whatley is an outdoor enthusiast and avid outdoorsman. Whether it’s sitting in a goose pit, upland bird hunting, big game hunting, stalking a cape buffalo in South Africa, or fishing for halibut in Ketchikan Alaska, hunting and fishing is in Scott’s blood and heritage. He founded Sportsman of Colorado Radio Show in 2012 to combine his passion for hunting and the outdoors with his expertise in broadcast media. Scott is a Radio Show Host, Professional Emcee, Consumer Advocate, and Television & Radio Broadcasting Media Executive with over 30 years experience helping businesses owners grow through targeted media, sales, and business development.
In addition to Sportsman Of Colorado Radio, in 2009 Scott and his business partner Chris Kane founded Haystack Help, a consumer advocacy and advertising company for exclusive businesses in Colorado. Haystack Help is comprised of a daily radio show on 560AM KLZ, 1220AM, 100.7FM, and 95.3FM, a trusted and exclusive consumer website referral list at www.HaystackHelp.com, and a place for consumers to go for help.
Scott is also passionate about advocating for Seniors and their Caregivers. In 2012 he founded Senior Resource Of Colorado, a Website Referral List, Radio Show, and Consumer Help Center created specifically for Seniors and Caregivers to access trustworthy businesses in Colorado. Companies are thoroughly background checked in order to be included in the www.SeniorResourceOfColorado.com referral list. The mission of Senior Resource Of Colorado is to serve as a resource and advocate in areas of importance to the ethical treatment and well-being of the Senior community and Caregivers.
I was raised in Dallas, Texas and I am grateful that my Dad, Bear Whatley, introduced me to the heritage of hunting, fishing, and the outdoor life at an early age. At age 6 with a 30-30, I killed my first buck with my Dad by my side. I am thankful he taught me to love and respect the outdoors, safety in the woods and at the range, and to always share your passion for the great outdoors with others. Whether it was jackrabbit hunting, squirrel hunting, waterfowl, pheasant, stalking that big Colorado Elk, or tracking a Kudu on a South Africa Safari hunt, I would not be the avid outdoorsman I am today without my Dad taking the time to teach me how to be a responsible outdoorsman.
When hunting season kicked off in Colorado in the fall of 2012, I combined my passion for the outdoors with my expertise in broadcast media and founded Sportsman Of Colorado and created the Sportsman of Colorado Radio Show.
Sportsman of Colorado is Colorado’s Outdoorsman Radio Show that airs every Saturday at 1:00-2:00 p.m. on 560AM KLZ, 100.7FM, 95.3FM, and 1220AM. My best friend and hunting buddy Red Merrell has joined me as the Co-Host of the show. Denver Attorney Kevin Flesch, a long time friend and avid sportsman is also a Co-Host of the show, sharing his love for the outdoors and legal expertise.
We offer a variety of hunting and fishing experts, outfitters, guns, ammo, and archery specialists to keep hunters, anglers, and outdoorsman informed of techniques, products, gear, conservation news, and the upcoming seasons.
Sportsman of Colorado provides radio listeners and the online community with a premier destination for the outdoorsman enthusiast. We showcase a distinctive blend of interviews, education, and practical information from wildlife experts.
Our goal is to provide a forum to collect and disseminate information on the best products and services, outfitters, outdoor stories and trophy photography, articles, advice and tips. We thoroughly research and only select knowledgeable businesses that cater to the passionate outdoorsman.
