Hometown: Hendersonville NC Affilliations: TNT Outdoor Explosion pro staff, Mossy Oak pro staff, Firenock pro staff Kenny grew up hunting and fishing in the mountains of Western North Carolina. His passion for the outdoors sooned turned to archery hunting for big game animals, primarily whitetail deer. He has taken whitetails in eleven different states, many of which would qualify for Pope & Young. The lure of the west eventually led him to pursue mule deer and elk. He hasn’t missed a year hunting several western states since his first experience in 2001. Kenny feels his greatest achievement in life is having the opportunity to introduce his entire family to the outdoors. As a member of TNT Outdoor Explosion TV and Mossy Oak`s whitetail prostaff, this allows him the opportunity to share his love of the outdoors with many others throughout the year. After twenty seven years of archery hunting and living the outdoor lifestyle, he is still learning and constantly preparing his skills for the next open season.

Shaggy has worked in the entertainment industry for over 30 years. He has worked with celebrities such as Rolling Stones, Aerosmith, Toby Keith, Garth Brooks, Billy Bob Thornton, Motley Crue, and Justin Moore, to name a few. Although most of his time in the industry has been as a coach driver, he has also been a tour manager, drum tech, and even sang back-up vocals for Garth Brooks on Garth’s “No Fences” album.
Shaggy’s real passion is hunting and being outdoors. His busy schedule in the entertainment business has made it difficult for him to pursue his hunting goals.

His favorite method of hunting is archery and has hunted game all over the world, from trophy class game in Africa to Caribou in Alaska.
