As a kid growing up, hanging out with your buddies was the only thing you thought about. How to make something go faster, how to make something explode, the next best prank, and finding the biggest fish in the creek was the goal. Years have passed since childhood, everyone is much older now with families and a different set of priorities, but time is still made to take that trip. Wherever they may end up, whatever they may be doing, you can guarantee The MudbuMs are going to have blast doing it. Take a trip back in time with a good ol fashioned B.B. gun competition or learn how to make a camp dinner the way the cowboys did it. Throw out the script and crack open your favorite beverage as the MudbuMs turn on the camera and let it roll. From outrageous springtime catfishing camps filled with flatheads in the Midwest to rod and reeling big blue cats down south and even the occasional hunt, the fellas know how to find a good time no matter where they end up.
A guitar picking old soul and visionary, a passion for people and challenges, and the burning need to be “outside and in it”, Blaine chases his dream everyday. Growing up in a family that cooked down home southern cooking, Blaine grew to love the art of making a meal Mom would be proud of. However, he prefers the old style method of griddles, dutch ovens, coals and fire. At camp he is usually found making the next calorie packed creation with his good buddy Shiner. With a background in construction and a career in business development, Blaine wakes up, gets the strongest cup of coffee he can find and attacks his day like a blood thirsty lion.
While spending years in the construction industry, Blaine found himself tirelessly working on a prototype product with his buddies. Spending weeks and months on the river, talking on a marine band, his handle “Crash” surfaced more and more. Everyone knows you never call a man by his name on the radio, so Crash (earned years prior on a gravel road running wide open) eventually became the norm, followed by Blaine of whom he is still referred to as by some friends and family. Divine intervention set in, and the show was born after running into his high school buddy after a decade of separation who just so happened to be a producer. 7 years, 9 proto-types, and a couple foreclosure notices later, the Hawg Lawg was born. Manufacturing started in 2014, the show was launched in 2015 , the store opened in 2016 and Crash came on full time to his own company. Crash loves to hunt and fish as much as he loves his favorite pair of boots and a gut busting laugh. A bullets and Bible kind of guy, he is always looking at life through the lens of those who walked here before us.
In the World of Niles “Willy” Bailey it is hard to drift away from outdoor conversation and activity. With constant analysis of his targeted species in which he is pursuing, the chess game has his mind planning the next move to complete ethical catch and release, harvest and pursuit. The drive always burns hot, and true to his roots, the most important thing is enjoying and sharing all that God has created with friends any family!
Aaron “Shiner” Creger is a family man who loves his two radical kids (Elly & Colt) alongside his gorgeous wife Katie. While Shiner enjoys the true beauty of the outdoors and pursuing its many creatures, none of it would seem remotely as gratifying without sharing it with his best friends and family. He also believes he is a world class mouth harp player (don’t tell him he really isn’t that good)!
Reid “Red” Baker is a reserved man who has enjoyed sports and outdoor activities since he was a young man. Red’s outdoor adventures started as a kid wondering the woods with his cousin on his Grandpa’s farm. During a time where few cell phones existed, Red and his cousin, learned the “ins and outs” of the outdoors without technology getting in the way! As time went on, Red split a lot of his time with soccer and the outdoors. Having the ability to play soccer in England, Iceland, Costa Rica and all over the nation Red had ideas of eventually playing in college. After jumping around to a few schools the University of Kentucky became home for a few years where Red played collegiate soccer and enjoyed the southern lifestyle. Now, Red solely focuses on keeping the bills paid, staying fit, and chasing a dream with some good buddies.
