When you grow up in the foot steps of a law enforcement officer you learn quickly what it means to protect and serve. Phil Christian of Timber Oak Outfitters carries on the legacy of his father through his service as a Police Officer for the citizens of Toronto. For over 20 years Phil has earned his stripes in the some of the harshest conditions any waterfowler will ever experience. With the loving support of his wife Dana and boys, Owen and Dylan, he has grown into a student of the waterfowling tradition who takes pride in being a "self-taught" man. This independent spirit drove him to learn how to train his retriever Thor who now holds a Hunting Retriever Champion title. Phil's evolution and growth as a sportsman serves to remind all of us of what can be achieved when measured determination is applied to one's passion.
