Meet the Legend

Who am I? Well, it started over 39+ years ago in a little town called Cordele, Georgia about 10:00 in the morning. Yeah, I never did like to get up real early. That’s where I was born and raised for the next 18 years of my life. My passions growing up were fishing, hunting, and baseball. I was going pro in something, just didn’t know what yet! Many summer days were spent on the lake or at practice, the falls then turned to chasin’ deer, doves, quail, and even squirrels. Hey, when you like to shoot stuff you stay in the woods all the time! After meeting Kevin Knighton, we formed Southern Backwoods, LLC that now produces Backwoods Life TV. We’ve been lucky and blessed along the way and are very proud to spend a lot of our time in the woods and on the road meeting folks just like us that live the Backwoods Life!

TV Shows and Airings

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, Kevin, and the rest of the Backwoods Life® Crew are on a more personal level all while showing the great hunts they journey into each year. After now over 12 years on the air, the guys have grown to new levels and are proud to say they are average folks living a dream.
