Outdoors show is a family affair for the Cricks

by Ed Godfrey Published: February 23, 2014

There is not a lot of spare time in the household of Tim and Candace Crick.

The Chandler couple own and operate a plumbing business in Edmond. They have five sons ranging from age 6 to 16.

And, they produce an outdoors television show featuring their family and six other couples from Oklahoma and Texas, all sharing their passion for hunting and fishing.

“Each couple has their own niche,” said Candace, an Edmond North graduate and national finalist last year for both the Extreme Huntress and Prois awards for female hunters.

Episodes of “Vital Obsession TV” will feature deep sea fishing, hog hunting in Texas, bear hunting in Idaho, moose hunting in Alaska and more.

Few outdoors television shows feature entire families hunting and fishing together, she said.

“So that is our goal with this show,” she said.

Tim and Candace Crick and the rest of the “Vital Obsession TV” staff will be appearing at the Backwoods Hunting and Fishing Expo, scheduled Friday through Sunday in the Travel and Transportation Building on the state fairgrounds.

The Cricks own Clearwater Plumbing in Edmond but live in Chandler, where they can more easily pursue their favorite pastimes, hunting and fishing.
