Jordan Winans of Laingsburg, Michigan, travels to one of the continent’s big buck hotspots to target monster whitetails on an episode of the Union Sportsmen’s Alliance’s (USA) Brotherhood Outdoors television series airing the week of August 5 on the Sportsman Channel.
A wind power technician and member of Utility Workers Union of America Local 104, Winans services giant wind-driven turbines high above the earth to help keep the lights on in millions of homes across the grid.
When his boots are on the ground, Winans spends as much time as possible in outdoor pursuits including chasing largemouth bass and walleyes, but his favorite pastime by far is scouting and bowhunting Michigan’s whitetail deer.
To fulfill his lifelong dream of matching wits with a monster buck, Winans travels to the legendary bluff country of Buffalo County, Wisconsin, and Winona County, Minnesota. Nestled in the rugged yet fertile Driftless Region untouched by glaciers in the last Ice Age, the counties are famous for producing record-book bucks.
The breathtaking terrain where Winans’ adventure occurs is unlike anywhere he’s hunted in his home state, and the bluffland bucks are considerably older and wiser, too. With the aid of his Schuhter’s Outpost host, he sets out in search of a giant.
Tune in to the Sportsman Channel Tuesday, August 6 at 4:30 p.m. Eastern to join this hardworking union member and avid bowhunter on his quest to take a 150-class or better whitetail in the land of legendary bucks. Then, tag along as the cameras follow Winans back to Michigan where he and his father host a military veteran during the annual Walleyes For Warriors fishing event on Saginaw Bay.
Viewers can also catch one of the episode’s re-airings on Wednesday at 11 a.m., Saturday at 1:30 a.m. or Sunday at 11 a.m. Eastern.
Produced by Rusted Rooster Media, Brotherhood Outdoors is now in its 11th season of inviting hardworking and deserving union members on fishing or hunting adventures of a lifetime.
As Season 11 continues, viewers can tag along with guests in pursuit of black bears on Vancouver Island, permit and bonefish in Mexico, giant bucks and waterfowl in Saskatchewan and more.
Every episode of Brotherhood Outdoors also takes viewers to the homes, communities and jobsites of these tireless American workers for an inspirational glimpse at their backstories before heading onto the water or into the field. Along the way, the show also offers snapshots of the USA’s community-based conservation, public access, outreach and mentorship efforts by a dedicated, all-volunteer union labor force.
