Getting his name:
Coyote has an uncommon name. In literary meaning, Coyote translates to a wild dog that resembles a wolf and is native to North America. But Coyote Peterson got his name from the cartoon character Coyote. Back in the day, Road Runner was a pretty popular show. The lead character Wile E. Coyote spent most of his days chasing roadrunners. Similar to the character, Coyote spent much of his days chasing road runners around his house.
Coyote Peterson was born on the 1st of September 1981 in Newbury Center, Ohio. Born and raised in Ohio, Coyote always loved the outdoors. He attended the Notre Dame-Cathedral Latin High School, before going on to study film at The Ohio State University. After graduating in 2004, Coyote started studying up on wildlife while working on several odd jobs.
After a decade or so of studying and exploration, Coyote launched his YouTube channel, Brave Wilderness. The channel was live in 2104 and Coyote released his first video on the 7th of July, 2105. Entitled ‘Introducing Wilderness’, the video allowed viewers a peek of what was to come. Since then, Coyote has put out 578 videos as of April 2020 and has 15.9M subscribers. He has generated over 3 billion views and earns a major part of his revenue from YouTube.
Coyote’s increasing fame as a YouTube star was noticed by the producers from the Animal Planet Network. As a wildlife expert, Coyote worked on something different which was uncommon for most of the wildlife shows. The network reached out to Coyote and commissioned them for a brand new TV series, Coyote Peterson: Brave the Wild. The series was announced on the 16th of November 2018. A television special entitled Coyote Peterson: Return to the Wilderness debuted on February 3, 2019. The series, however, took two years to complete and was premiered on Animal Planet on February 9, 2020. As of April 2020, the series has aired 18 episodes and there has been no news of renewal.
