DUNCAN, BRITISH COLUMBIA — A family and their well-established, popular brand will never be the same, in perhaps the saddest story we’ve ever written on this blog.
Mr. Jim Shockey is a 65-year-old hunter, professional big game outfitter, and television producer. He is best known for hosting and producing the shows Jim Shockey’s Hunting Adventures and Jim Shockey’s Uncharted on the Denver-based Outdoor Channel. The shows also appear on the MyOutdoorTV and DangerTV YouTube channels.
Mr. Shockey was featured in a video game called Cabela’s Big Game Hunter Pro Hunts. Outdoor Life magazine named him “the most accomplished big game hunter of the modern era” in 2017. He co-founded BookYourHunt.com, which provides guided hunting trips, in 2016. More on that in a bit. Mr. Shockey married his wife, Louise, on November 30, 1984 when both of them were 27 years old.
Mrs. Shockey, known in the family as “Nana Weezy,” was a former actress and dancer. She was a refreshingly traditional lady who embraced being a mother to the couple two kids, a grandmother, a homemaker, a nurturer and a wife. Here is Mrs. Shockey in 2018 describing how she was a vegetarian before marrying Jim.
The couple was very public about their entire life. From all appearances, even though social media typically only shows the positive, they were genuinely in love even after 39 years of marriage.
The Shockeys grew their own grapes and apples on their property to make their homemade wine. Mr. Shockey has over 1.3 million total followers on Twitter, Instagram and Facebook. The couple lived a near-perfect, storybook life. Then along came 2020.
COVID dystopia and business disruptions
The so-called pandemic brought out the philosophical side of Mr. Shockey.
He tried keeping his guided hunting business going as usual despite the very oppressive COVID rules in Canada.
Hunters are socially conservative for the most part. Mr. Shockey traveled around a lot for his business; and just because he and Mrs. Shockey lived their lives that way. He constantly had to explain to his audience why he was wearing masks in pictures.
Mr. Shockey published an article in Outdoor Life magazine on June 16, 2021. The Canadian border closure severely disrupted his business since a lot of his clients are from the United States.
Apparently many of Mr. Shockey’s U.S. clients paid large deposits and/or full hunting trip fees up to $10,000 in 2019 for their spring trips in 2020. When the so-called pandemic hit, and the Canadian border closed, those clients lost their money because they failed to buy insurance. The fine print on the contract says “no refunds.” The situation led to a moral dilemma.
A lawyer ripped off Mr. Shockey to the tune of $3,500 to explain to him a very common, simple, fairly universal legal theory in the Western world called “Force Majeure” (our COVID Legal USA™ AI bot could have told him that for a couple hundred bucks).
Basically there was no way to foresee the so-called pandemic and Prime Minister Justin Trudeau completely shutting down the border. Thus Mr. Shockey was protected from liability for costs he already incurred from the clients’ deposits and prepayments.
Mr. Shockey wrote that 90% of the fees paid by clients were operating costs, with only 10% being profit. He emphasized that it was “not his style” to do that to clients; and that he’d rather negotiate with them than give thousands of dollars to lawyers.

Mr. Shockey implied in the article that he filed for bankruptcy. It’s unclear if that actually happened. Reactions to the article by hunters were mixed. Some felt Mr. Shockey was full of it, while others were sympathetic to his plight.
An important quote from the article is as follows:
“The Canadian border will be open soon, but most certainly with restrictions. It is likely that permission for non-Canadian citizens to enter Canada will only be granted for those providing proof of two COVID vaccines.”
Note that said article was published in June 2021. Mr. Shockey was desperately trying to save his business for month prior to that.
Moderna injections, Louise’s cancer and Jim’s mystery illness
Mr. Shockey did not talk much about the lethal injections; and he certainly is not a vaxx zealot. But he had a struggling, public-facing business in one of the top-3 COVID hell countries on the planet. Mr. Shockey confirmed on April 12, 2021 that he received two Moderna mRNA injections. His conservative fan base, once again, needled him (no pun intended), for receiving the injections.
Mr. Shockey confirmed three days later that Mrs. Shockey also received two Moderna mRNA injections.
Granted Mr. Shockey was referencing South Carolina (where the PGA Championship takes place), which was ranked #2 behind only Iowa in 2021 for states with the fewest COVID restrictions; and he completely left out COVID dystopian hell states like New York, California, Washington, Oregon, Illinois, etc. But he fully recognized how Canada was a giant prison like Australia and New Zealand in 2021, despite being “fully vaccinated.”

We scoured the Shockeys’ Facebook, Twitter and Instagram profiles back to 2018. There are no indications of health issues whatsoever. They had no immediate or near-term adverse reactions to the injections, until the worst possible news struck.
Mr. Shockey announced on November 28, 2021 that what the family believed was just a dry cough for Louise turned out to be “lung cancer. Aggressive. Late Stage. Inoperable. Incurable. Already spread.” Mrs. Shockey was scheduled for radiation, mustard gas (“chemo”) therapy and immunotherapy.
There is zero indication in 30,000-plus social media posts and YouTube videos that either smoked cigarettes.

Mrs. Shockey posted an update on April 15, 2022, saying that “instead of months, there is now a possibility that I may have years to live.”
She had a huge smile on her face in the corresponding photo and seemed to be doing well, considering the circumstances. But this woman was literally smiling big in every photo this blogger has seen of her. Mrs. Shockey had a positive disposition no matter what, as you’ll see. But what happened next likely shattered her physically and emotionally.
Mr. Shockey, suddenly and out of nowhere, suffered severe inflammation in his right knee that caused it to be “double normal size.”
His condition rapidly worsened. By October 2, 2022, Mr. Shockey, the avid outdoorsman and hunter, looked frail and could barely walk. Doctors could only speculate as to what was wrong. They posited both Lyme disease and polymyalgia rheumatica (PMR).
Just a few months prior, Jim was caring for Louise during her cancer “treatments.” Now Louise was caring for her husband.
Mr. Shockey regained his ability to walk a month later, but only with daily drug cocktails.
2023: Jim continues with various treatments as his condition becomes unpredictable
The Shockeys kicked off the New Year with renewed hopes. Mr. Shockey, albeit with the assistance of a lot of drugs, was walking and feeling better. Mrs. Shockey had already beaten her doctors’ prognosis as far as life expectancy.
Mr. Shockey kept a positive vibe while honestly reporting his tribulations. He wrote on March 12 that doctors prescribed him Methotrexate injections that he self-administered into his stomach.
Methotrexate is used to treat autoimmune disorders, cancer, psoriasis, arthritis and other conditions. But it is a very dangerous, last resort type of drug that can seriously damage the lungs, kidneys, liver, stomach and pretty much every other organ in your body.
Mrs. Shockey’s last Facebook post came on April 15. It reads “how fast does time fly,” in reference to one of her growing grandsons. Mr. Shockey, on May 29, announced that he was now receiving experimental infusions since nothing else was working.
He was able to walk, but “only at about 60%” of his pre-Moderna self. That meant no golf, no mountain climbing, and very limited outdoor activities. Mr. Shockey, again, had to defiantly explain to his conservative audience why he was wearing a mask in the corresponding photo.
The infusions were effective, as Mr. Shockey was back to hiking and golfing six weeks later, on July 14.
“Do not hurt. Do not feel sorrow for me.”
Mr. Shockey had not posted much about Louise over the summer. He shared a photo with his bride on August 22.
About four weeks later, on September 18, Mr. Shockey posted a photo of Louise in a bed, with the caption indicating that they are awaiting the family’s arrival. Several strange replies to the post appeared to be saying goodbye despite Mrs. Shockey still being alive and smiling.
Mr. Shockey has a book deal with Simon & Schuster. He’d been working on his book Call Me Hunter for at least two years. The publishing giant overnight shipped a copy of the book to Mr. Shockey so his wife could see it.
Mrs. Shockey looked very skinny in the following September 19 photo. But she still had her signature smile and appeared extremely proud and happy for her husband’s accomplishment.
The final photo of Mrs. Shockey came the next day, September 20. “Louise smiles to let me and all of us know ‘I am at peace,'” wrote Mr. Shockey.
About 30 hours later, on September 21, Mr. Shockey posted the following.
Mrs. Shockey passed away on September 21. She was 66. We’re only posting the following comment to Mr. Shockey’s post because there were others like it. No speculation and no drawing conclusions. We’ll leave it there.
Mr. Shockey is trying to carry on strong for the rest of the family. But again, the couple was happily married for 39 years.
He’s unlikely to ever heal emotionally.
But at least right now, it appears he can walk and do all the things he used to do again. The family is requesting donations to Cowichan District Hospital Foundation to honor Mrs. Shockey’s memory.
“Murderna” strikes again
Mrs. Shockey only ate meat that was killed by her husband. When she married Mr. Shockey and hung up her vegetarian days, she stressed the idea of eating “clean meat,” meaning with no steroids, heavy metals, etc. like supermarket meat, as the reason. Mrs. Shockey did not smoke.
They lived in BFE with trees everywhere, thus minimal air pollution. And from all appearances, she and her husband were very happy together. Happily married people live longer than single people. Mrs. Shockey had a healthy body weight and looked quite attractive for a 60-something in early 2020.
It took just seven months after the injections for her to develop lung cancer. Only 20% of annual lung cancer deaths in the U.S. are non-smokers. The main causes of lung cancer in non-smokers, according to the American Cancer Society, are secondhand smoke (nope), radon gas (nope), asbestos at work (nope), air pollution (nope), and GENE MUTATIONS (bingo).
For what it’s worth, Mrs. Shockey lived nearly two years after her post-injection cancer diagnosis, the longest we’ve ever seen on this blog.

These types of stories are difficult to write because this blogger knew nothing about the Shockeys at all prior to getting started on this article (h/t to The COVID Blog® subscriber Jeannie for bringing it to our attention). The fact that it’s such a sad story made it that much harder to complete.
Moderna destroyed their lives, just like it’s destroyed and ended millions of others. The Shockeys were near retirement age in 2020. They did not need to do this. Happy marriage, home, kids, grandkids, fame, financial stability.
Every normal, non LGBTV-cult human dreams of all that. Growing old and living happily ever after. Plus Mr. Shockey was completely skeptical of masks and injections prior to all this. Now he’ll live the rest of his years with unpredictable health, and without the love of his life. This blogger is vehemently against big game hunting for fun and thrills. You hunt for food, for survival. Whatever Mr. Shockey’s intentions, we still wish him all the best.
