HUNT Presented Hardcore is a show inspired by you, the viewer. We stripped out all the commercialization. graphics, and epic slow motion shots, and what you’re left with is something we all love…the HUNT. Bone Collector Productions teamed up with Kevin, Chris, Keith and Cody to bring it back to the roots of the culture of the hunter in a cinematic, fly-on-the wall style.
Keith’s father began taking him hunting and fishing at a very early age. Keith grew up farming with his family in Northeast Louisiana around his hometown of Monticello, Louisiana. When Keith wasn’t on a tractor, combine or cotton picker you could find him either hunting or fishing.
At the age of 27, Keith decided to make a career out of his love for the outdoors. He moved to Mississippi and went to work at Primos Hunting where he worked for fourteen years. Thirteen of those years were spent in the TV/Video Production department where he was able to do what he loved best, HUNT! Of all the critters Keith has hunted his favorite thing to chase are the bugling Bull Elk in their September rut with his bow. When Elk season is over, he is happy to hunt any other critter that may be in season.
In August 2014 the Lord opened another door of opportunity for Keith. Keith went to work for Bone Collector/ Hardcore to start production of a new outdoor television show that will begin airing July 2015 on the Sportsman Channel.
Keith resides in Clinton, Mississippi with his wife, Randi, and their 3 year old son Kai. When home Keith and Randi love spending time teaching Kai how to hunt, fish, and understand the great gift of the outdoors!
Born and raised in Clinton, MS, Kevin grew up hunting and fishing with his dad and brothers along the banks of the Mississippi River. While in college, he started working at Tara Wildlife as a hunting guide during the fall and with his dad in the insurance business in the summer.
In 1998, Kevin went to work full time for Deer Creek Timber Company in Port Gibson, MS, where he managed 5,000 acres of wildlife and timber. Then in 2002, Kevin went to work for Primos Hunting Calls in Flora, MS, where he was a videographer and producer. He was promoted to executive producer of Primos Truth About Hunting TV show on the Outdoor Channel in 2010.
In August 2014, he was blessed with another opportunity when he joined the Hardcore/Bone Collector team for a new TV show to air in July 2015. This opportunity is allowing him to collaborate with other hunting personalities within the industry.
Bow hunting is Kevin’s favorite sport, he particularly enjoys hunting the Midwestern whitetails during the rut. He also enjoys the early season along the Mississippi River while bucks are still on their regular summer feed patterns. He thinks that this time is one of the most effective times to be in the woods. When Kevin is on the road, he always looks forward to getting home and catching crappie. His wife, Brandie, and he have two children, Kemper Cole and Kelley Claire. Kevin is passing on his love of the outdoors to his children just as his father did for him and his brothers.
Cody was born and raised in Louisville, MS. He went on to graduate from Delta State University where he pitched for the Statesmen Baseball Team for four years. After his senior season, he had the opportunity to take a short dip into the minor league bus rides. After the 2010 baseball season, he became a Free-Lance Videographer for Primos Truth About Hunting TV show on the Outdoor Channel. After going back to Delta State for the spring semester and graduating with a degree in Education, Cody went to work for Primos full time as a Producer/Co-host for Primos Truth about Hunting.
Cody’s love of the outdoors began at the age of 4 when he began hunting with his Dad in the hills of Mississippi. His Father taught him the appreciation and love for the outdoors, and Cody learned that success was much more than just pulling the trigger. The hunts and time spent in the woods with his Dad are always Cody’s most memorable. Cody’s favorite time of the year is bowhunting whitetails during Pre-rut, since the bucks are up cruising, marking territory, and calling is at an all-time high.
After four special seasons working for Primos, a new door opened up for Cody. In August 2014, Cody went to work for Michael Waddell’s Bone Collector/ Hardcore team to be a Co-Host/Producer of a new Outdoor Television Show to begin Airing on Sportsman Channel in July 2015. This was a dream that Cody had always had. It was the opportunity to live, document, and share the passion of hunting with buddies in a new and exciting format that we now call Hardcore, produced by Bone Collector.
Chris grew up hunting with his father near Vicksburg, MS where he was born and raised. Chris harvested his first doe at age nine and the rest is history.
He started guiding bowhunters at Tara Wildlife in 1995 prior to joining the team that would become the Hardcore Team. In the off season Chris enjoys riding horses and bass fishing.
