Hunting is part of a culture rooted deep in this great country of ours that is centered around God and family. Red Arrow's southern roots have the same foundation, and this show is as real as it gets! Host Kip Campbell hunts all types of wild game both big and small all over the country in 100% fair chase environments. Red Arrow occasionally features award-winning country music singer, friend, and fellow hunter Zac Brown, of the Zac Brown Band, on hunting excursions when he finds time to get in the field while touring with the band. The show is primarily bow hunting, with occasional firearm hunting and pro second amendment and self defense segments. Ride along with Kip and crew as he takes you from the ultimate in adventure hunts abroad, to intense action in the southern back woods of Virginia he calls home. Red Arrow is a fast paced and comedic show that's full of great music, good times and great hunting action!
Kip grew up in the country near the banks of the James River in Central Virginia and spent his days bow hunting, fishing and playing sports at Fork Union Military Academy. Kip knew early on he wanted to work with a weapon in his hand, so the military, law enforcement or pro-hunter were the only jobs that would be acceptable in his mind. The last option seemed pretty far fetched... seeing as how he didn't come from a "big buck" part of the country and had no tie in with any hunting companies.
After high school, he attended Lynchburg College where it all fell into place. Playing on the Lynchburg Lacrosse team took up much of his time at school but he continued to bow hunt whenever he could. In his second year, he switched his major to communications and started making short films and hunting videos. This gave Kip less time in the classroom and more time in the field. He also found that editing was something he really enjoyed. Then when Chad came to school there in 2003 they formed Shotfish Productions Inc. and started filming what would be the first pilot episode of Red Arrow.
Although today the Red Arrow crew hunts all over the world, Kip still lives in the small town of Fork Union and frequently hunts some of the same ground he hunted as a kid. He wants to see Red Arrow TV become bigger, better and more entertaining each year. More importantly he wants Red Arrow viewers to understand just what hunting and living in the country means to everyone involved with Red Arrow. He lives for the thrill of killing animals with his bow and enjoying the outdoors with family and friends.
Josh was born and raised in Chesterfield, Virginia and now lives in Powhatan. His passion for the outdoors evolved from tradition in the Bartlam family. He was raised hunting with his father, grandfather, and cousin, Wayne from a very young age.
He graduated from East Tennessee State University in 2006, where he studied Digital Media, studying graphic design, web design, and concentrating in video production. He met several friends at ETSU with nearby hunting properties, and the guys began videoing hunts together.
In 2009, Josh met Kip and Kat through a family acquaintance. After helping design the website and some motion graphics and editing for Season II, Josh was hired on full time with Red Arrow TV as a camera man, editor, graphic designer, and is now the manager of production.
Kat grew up in the city of Richmond, VA but she knew she wasn't meant to stay...She was a country girl at heart! Kat has always spent time in and respected the outdoor lifestyle.
Kat attended Lynchburg College to play soccer, where she would meet Kip in 2000. In 2004, Kip took Kat on her first hunt, and she would soon fall in love with not only Kip, but the sport of hunting as well. Since that first hunt, she has become a very skilled archer in her own right. You may have seen Kat killing her first big game animals in New Zealand on Season II, and she proudly took her first 2 whitetails with archery tackle in Season III. With a little more practice and a lot more instruction, she hopes one day she will be as good as Kip!
Kat is the backbone of Red Arrow , handling the public relations side of things as well as some marketing and advertising... although her predominant role is taking care of Red Arrow's future pro-staff members, their daughters Addison and Izzie, and their son Cade. She feels very blessed to be involved in and active in so many things she loves- especially her family and the outdoors!
Danny was born and raised in Maryland not far inside the MD/VA line and now lives in Louisa, VA. He attended Lynchburg College to play basketball but missed Kip and Kat at LC by a couple of years. After his second year in college, he was introduced to Kip through Kip’s cousin, who he is now married to today. One of the first times that Danny spent time with Kip and Kat was at the Red Arrow premiere party in 2008, so his ties to Red Arrow date back to the first episode of Red Arrow that aired on Sportsman Channel.
Danny studied business and sport management in college and completed his Master in Business Administration (MBA) degree from Lynchburg College in 2011. He works closely with Kat with Red Arrow’s national and local advertising partners and also handles Red Arrow’s social media marketing.
