Why an Interview,,,
Over the years we have been able to meet and talk with some very interesting people. They have shared with us their knowledge and have provided us with a great deal of insight as to how and why festivals and events work and why they are so important to our communities and to the Province of Ontario. With this in mind, we decided that we wanted you to meet and hear from some of the wonderful people who work so hard to provide us all with such wonderful Ontario Festivals and Events! We are pleased and proud to present "THE INSIDE SCOOP"!

Interview with THE MANTRACKER
aka THE MANTRACKER

I asked Mantracker how he learned respect and the work ethics he has adapted to over the years. He said “once you spend 8 to 10 hours every day out on a horse, come in to do your chores and take care of business, you learn quickly”. Terry tells us that when you are all alone in the bush, you need to be able to take care of yourself, there is no one to rely on but you!.
We asked the Mantracker how genuine he was while filming the TV series, was it just an “act” for the cameras? He quickly responded … “no acting, no script, it all comes right from my heart”.
A question you might not know the answer to is that Terry has never come across any serious danger in the bush. There was a cougar sighting by the “prey” and a black bear sighting, but other than that, nothing exceptional to speak about.
After talking about the youth of today and realizing just how negative our society seems to be (in parts), I asked Terry how he stayed positive. He actually seemed surprised by this question, as if it were a redundant question. He says “I have always been positive. Negativity doesn’t even entre into my life” An example Terry told us, was “if you loose you keys in your house, why get all upset and frazzled, eventually you will find them, they are there”. Another answer to this question he tells us that “I feel is VERY VERY positive … I very seldom say I lost! I’ll say I just didn’t get there first!” We mentioned to the Mantracker that he seemed to be “upset” when he lost to a competitor. He admitted that “you do get cranky if you don’t win the game, especially when you think you should win”.
