CarbonTV Profiles Bone Collector Founder Michael Waddell On an All New American Elements

DETROIT, MI — April 27, 2017 – CarbonTV debuts the second season of its award-winning documentary series “American Elements” with an exclusive profile of Bone Collector founder Michael Waddell. “American Elements: Michael Waddell” is available on-demand for free on and related CarbonTV OTT apps.

In the episode, Waddell tells the story of his rise from typical, small town southerner to national hunting icon. We get a glimpse of his life growing up in Booger Bottom, Georgia and learn how his obsession with chasing turkeys led to the creation of the Bone Collector brand; one of the outdoor industry’s most successful franchises.

“Success shouldn’t make you cocky, it should make you humble and bring you closer to your roots, because that is typically what gets you there in the first place. Stick to your roots and you can grow in so many directions,” says Michael Waddell.

“We are thrilled to give viewers a window into Michael Waddell’s life,” says Daniel Seliger, EVP of Content at CarbonTV. “There is no one in the outdoor industry quite like Michael. Every sportsman should watch this episode.”

Waddell co-hosts the television shows “Realtree Road Trips,” and “Bone Collector,” and serves as the national spokesperson for the National Wild Turkey Federation.

Michael Waddell’s episode marks the ninth installment of the American Elements series. Prior episodes featured rural luminaries like bow-hunting athlete Cameron Hanes, best-selling author and commentator Taya Kyle, MMA fighter and outdoorsman Chad Mendes and other captivating stories. The collection won the 2016 Telly Award for Best Web Series and has garnered millions of views on CarbonTV.
