Nathaniel Peterson ore better known by his online name of Coyote Peterson, is an American youtube personality that has blown up in recent years. Coyote Peterson is famous for his channel named ‘Brave Wilderness.’  The Youtuber has steadily been growing in rank and has amassed an incredible 14 million subscribers in five years of his career on the online platform.

He started the channel in 2014 with the sole intent of educating the masses on all kinds of wildlife. He would catch dangerous animals and insects and proceed to inform his audiences of the unique qualities of each creature. Many of his youtube videos go viral and garner over a million views annually.


The nature enthusiast was born in Newbury, Ohio, on September 1st,1981. From the very beginning of his childhood, he had a natural inclination towards nature and the different types of animals he would encounter. The Youtuber would see a myriad of animals and would be thoroughly fascinated by them. There was a pod behind the house in which he resided, from which he would often go fishing with his father. He used to catch water animals with only his hands, and his parents would document the excitement of the child.

The most prominent experience of his adventures was the one with the snapping turtle. At the age of eight, Peterson caught a common snapping turtle that had the genuine threat of biting off his fingers, Still, interestingly enough, he did it without any fear or difficulty and hence increased his love for wildlife and mainly aquatic animals.

His family was well-traveled and had made sure to take their son on these trips. By the age of 18, the Nature lover had traveled fifty of the U.S states. This had relished his curiosity and had given a significant amount of experience seeing and learning about different landscapes and the animals that reside in them. Bear Grylls and Steve Irwin are the greatest inspiration for the internet star that had cemented his love and passion for exploring the wilderness.

Coyote had an immense interest in filmmaking. His specialties lie in screenwriting and film direction and further attended ‘The Ohio State University’ to procure the degree for this major. This would ultimately help him out in his later career as a YouTuber for nature-related content.

The snapping turtle inspired the bright idea of him getting into Youtube. He went to the arboretum in Cleveland to hike with his one-year-old daughter. He was gathering frogs to showcase to his girlfriend, after whom a group of children also came, from which he quickly dived into the water to capture the snapping turtle that he spotted. He explained to the crowd about the interesting facts about this breed of reptile. He was awe-struck by this and decided to approach many documentary film channels to walk in the direction of his heroes.

Unfortunately, he was rejected by many studios and was going nowhere. Instead of being disheartened by this attitude, he didn’t lose confidence in his passion. He took the initiative and made his channel named the Brave Wilderness in 2014, and the rest is history.
