SKULL BOUND TV & SKULL BOUND CHRONICLES
Skull Bound TV is a hunting and fishing adventure show that aired on The Sportsman Channel for nine years which tied in Host Jana Waller’s painted and beaded skull business. Skull Bound TV morphed into Skull Bound Chronicles in order to reach viewers on a free, digital platform that’s available for everyone, at any time. From scaling mountains in her own backyard of Montana to bowhunting the Dark Continent, Jana is a passionate hunter and angler in search of adventure and connections to the past that come from hunting. Unlike many tv shows that focus on the trophy, Waller emphasizes the journey of the hunt and the appreciation for the great outdoors. She’s passionate about conservation and preserving our country’s hunting heritage which includes helping others understand the critical role hunters play in wildlife management and the healing power of Mother Nature.

With a Bachelorʼs Degree in Public Relations from the University of Wisconsin-Whitewater, Jana has blended her intensity for conservation with her communications background, actively promoting women in the outdoors in both print and Tv. She has cohosted or appeared on numerous national television shows such as “Invasion Of’ on Animal Planet, ‘Outfitter Bootcamp’ on The Outdoor Channel and numerous shows on The Sportsman Channel. Jana co- produced and starred in her own Tv show called Skull Bound TV which aired for nine years on The Sportsman Channel where her hunting and fishing adventures were shared with millions.
