Bill McConnell is the co-host of Discovery Channel's reality series "Dual Survival."

A primitive wilderness survivalist, Bill McConnell started training in the wilderness at the age of four under the guidance of his grandfather. He grew up near Cleveland, Ohio, but often spent time outdoors in the mountains of nearby Pennsylvania. As a young adult and art student, he was homeless for a time and adapted the lessons of his grandfather to hunt for his own food and practice a form of urban survival.

Eventually, McConnell found his way to the Pine Barrens of New Jersey, where he studied under and taught alongside Tom Brown, Jr. for nearly a decade. McConnell's lifelong devotion to the outdoors led him to explore primitive skills, including the tool manufacturing and hunting techniques of indigenous and ancient societies. He now lives in Montana where he runs the PAST Skills Wilderness School, leading courses on primitive camouflage, fire by friction techniques, Native American hunting traditions, and many other related topics.
