How the Legend of Benny Spies Began
After 11 years of persistence and perseverance, my dream of creating and hosting a TV show became a reality. I’ve earned degrees from both South Dakota State University and Florida State University and had excellent TV experience working behind the scenes for “Late Night with Conan O’Brien,” in the Page Program for NBC and in production for PBS and VH1 before moving back home to South Dakota to create my own outdoor show. It wasn’t easy, but after years of “no’s”, I finally heard a “yes” from VERSUS. “Gun It” premiered in 2010 and ran for three seasons on VERSUS / NBC Sports Network.
Beginning in 2013, “Gun It” moved to its current home on Sportsman Channel and I couldn’t be happier!
I’m currently a contributing writer for Outdoor Life magazine and also co-hosted a special on Animal Planet and was a field host on Sportsman Channel’s “Amazing America with Sarah Palin.”
My passion is to share my love for the outdoors and give the world an honest representation of how the majority of Americans enjoy it. Few people have the opportunity to travel the world and hunt and fish wherever they want. I’m no different. To me, it’s not about the high-dollar game hunt or having the best gear money can buy. It’s about going out and doing things the way I was taught – gettin’ dirty, pullin’ the trigger and sometimes casting a thousand times to catch one fish. It’s about enjoying timeless adventures with friends, family, and the people I meet throughout the small towns I travel. Most importantly, it’s about having fun! And, I’m damn good at that.
