Mike "Big Mike" Beaudry grew up on his family's grain farm in Bellsite, Manitoba, population 100. For as long as he can remember Mike would follow his Dad around "like a shadow" as he fixed equipment on the farm.
In the harsh winters, Mike helped with the family logging business. Mike left his home town at 22, moving to Saskatoon, Saskatchewan, to continue work in logging and construction.
During the off-season, Mike runs and owns a successful mobile mechanical and welding services company in Lloydminster, Saskatchewan. His hobbies include hunting, fishing, boating, and quad-biking.
