Since 2004, Michael Lee and Kevin Knighton have been blessed enough to bring outdoor television into the homes of loyal viewers each week. The guys work hard to bring their life, personalities, and experiences to the viewers that show what the average person goes through each year trying to fill tags and their freezers. Backwoods Life shows even more of an inside look into who Michael and Kevin are as well as the rest of the Backwoods Life Crew on a more personal level all while showing the great hunts they journey into each year. After now over 13 years on the air, the guys have grown to new levels and are proud to say they are average folks living a dream.
Michael grew up in the woods and on the water of the Flint River in South Georgia. From a young age, he learned to appreciate the outdoors. He was taught how to hunt and fish by his father and grandfathers. Michael graduated from Valdosta State University with a Bachelor’s Degree in Computer Information Systems, so he really is the “high-tech redneck”.
Kevin was born and raised in the backwoods of rural Florida, where he still lives today. Taught early on how to hunt deer in the swamps by his dad and family, Kevin learned how to hone his skills for hunting across the country. Kevin produces the show and for the past 13 years has been the force behind top-quality production in the “Backwoods Life” camp.
