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. He, and his wife Kat, formed Shotfish Productions Inc. and started filming what would be the first pilot episode of Red Arrow®.
Red Arrow has come a long way since then! He now has two girls: Addie, 6, and Izzie, 3. He loves sharing the outdoors with all his girls, and has even gotten the 3 year old pulling back a bow! Red Arrow has been on Outdoor Channel now for the past two years, and moving into Season 7, remains in their Prime Time Sunday Night Block. Red Arrow has been up for 5 Outdoor Channel Golden Moose Awards the past two years in the following categories: Best New Series, Best Commercial Production, Best Comedy Skit, Best Videography, and Best Bird Hunting. Red Arrow also competed in a filming/hunting reality TV show put on by Campbell's Cameras called Top Outdoor Producer. The other competitors during that show were Buck Commander, Heartland Bowhunter, Raven 6, and Endless Season just to name a few. Team Red Arrow came out on top as winner of Top Outdoor Producer. Red Arrow also is proud to have a part of its family, friend and fellow bowhunter Zac Brown of the Zac Brown Band. He gets on as many hunts as his hectic schedule will allow and also provides Red Arrow with original music by the artists on his label- Southern Ground Artists- such as Blackberry Smoke, Sonia Leigh, Levi Lowry, Wood Bros.etc making Red Arrow stand out with use of popular music.
