Naked & Afraid--Up Close with Matt Wright
Born and living in Colorado, Matt owns Extreme Instinct LLC, making custom knives, survival gear and teaching survival classes. He's best known, though, for his appearances on Discovery Channel's Naked and Afraid and Naked and Afraid XL.
While other kids played with toys, Matt went outdoors, learning traditional archery and primitive weapons and harvesting his first bull elk at 12 years old. Following his drive to hunt drove him all over the country, taking everything from a 12-foot gator with a bow to hunting Alaska's big game with the primitive Atlatl. He thrives on finding adventure and was nicknamed the "Juggernaut" for his ability to not be stopped.
