Chip was born to parents Daniel Franklin Hailstone (father) and Mary Lois Hailstone (mother). Even as a child, he had a lot of interest in hunting and quickly learned the skills essential for a hunter while growing up. He also learned fishing and craft-making during this time and always had the desire to use these skills and live out his life as a hunter. This led to him moving to Alaska at the age of 19, but after a while, he fell in love with the Alaskan wilderness and is still living there.
Not much information is available regarding his education. It seems as though he has studied up to high school but he might have chosen to rather learn the skills of hunting and fishing during his childhood.

Chip was also caught in some controversy due to his prison sentence of 15 months in 2017. He spent 10 of those months in jail and he clarified the reasons for his imprisonment after being released.
