Born in the hunting-rich state of Michigan, Lewis grew up around deer camp with his father and uncles and picked up a bow to start chasing whitetail as soon as legally possible, on his 12th birthday. After college, Lewis set his sights on a new pursuit—singing and songwriting, which led him to the neon-lit corner bars of Nashville’s famous strip. He returned to his home state in 2010 to focus on hunting and writing and soon began penning outdoor articles for local and then national magazines. Along with teaching, Lewis currently, writes, produces video, and hosts his podcast and blog, all aimed at educating hunters for improved success in the field.


Lewis earned his BS in Science Education from Olivet Nazarene University, Songwriting School of Hard Knocks, Nashville, TN.
