My story began 35 years ago in backwoods and backwaters of Booger Bottom, Georgia. No crowds, strip malls or concrete jungles there. Just a heck of a lot of places for a young kid to get dirty, get into trouble and grow up country – the kind of place where a boy can be a boy and not worry one bit about the fast pace of city life. Man, we need more places like that these days, huh?
Like the old saying goes, I’m Southern by birth and redneck by the grace of God. If I ever get a tattoo, that’s definitely what it’ll say. I’m country through and through. I dig twangy music and old school Southern rock. I like my steaks southern fried, my hashbrowns scattered, smothered ‘n covered and my tea sweet and stout. Real stout – the kind you can dang near cut with a knife – just like my Grand Mamma used to make. I’m a guitar pickin’, blue jeans wearin’, backstrap grillin’ good ol’ boy who was born to hunt. If it gobbles, quacks, bugles or grunts, chances are I’ve chased it more than a time or two. Droppin’ the hammer and closin’ the coffin on anything with antlers, feathers or fur just never gets old. I bet you know exactly what I’m talkin’ about.

A native of Spearfish, South Dakota, licensed hunting guide in Wyoming for 15 years, Realtree cameraman for 9 years, and a barber by trade, Nick Mundt has lived, breathed,and loved hunting since he was a young boy. Nick is one of the three hosts of Michael Waddell’s Bone Collector that airs exclusively on the Outdoor Channel and his comedic, charmismatic character is true and real. Nick has had the opportunity to travel and hunt in over 15 states, 3 different continents, and helps to spread the word of the culture of the Hunter at speaking engagements/appearances in many venues. Nick not only talks the talk, but he makes the shots. Even with the fast growth of Bone Collector and his popularity to the public, Nick keeps himself grounded with his roots in South Dakota using his free time to relax by the lake, hone his shot, crank out a Karaoke tune or cook up a tasty meal. What he enjoys most about this public platform is sharing with all that will listen why it is important not to apologize for being a hunter, but to teach that hunting morals and values is what our culture was built on.

He’s started his own archery business, restored a vintage Mercedes, held the Outdoor 3-D Archery Word Champion title and appeared on numerous television shows and videos, including Realtree’s “Monster Bucks” video series. And though Travis Turner, a.k. a T-Bone, didn’t get to keep the Mercedes, he did manage to hold on to his passion for archery.
“Whether it’s in a tree stand or competing in an indoor arena, I just love to be around hunters and archers who have a desire to shoot and have a good time. I can’t tell you how many friends I’ve made just having fun…and building relationships is what this sport is all about.”
