Union electrician Brian Bradley scores big on his first-ever whitetail hunt when the Union Sportsmen’s Alliance’s (USA) Brotherhood Outdoors airs on the Sportsman Channel the week of October 11.
A business manager for the International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers (IBEW) Local 113 and a Colorado Springs native, Bradley is accustomed to hunting mule deer in the Colorado mountains.
This adventure took him to northeast Wyoming in search of a big whitetail buck among the irrigated fields and grass- and scrub-covered terrain of the Bighorn Mountain foothills.
Hunting during the first stages of the rut, Bradley and his guide Mike Miller glassed, rattled, and grunted before an ideal buck presented itself. Then it was a matter of waiting for the perfect shot.
While following along on Bradley’s hunt, viewers also get a glimpse into his role as a union business manager. Bradley was a key figure in launching the USA Colorado State Conservation Dinner, an annual event that brings union members together to raise funds to support local conservation projects and community outreach events.
“We take the money raised at the dinner and do positive things in the community with it,” he said. “We’ve already held a Take Kids Fishing event and are working on organizing one for veterans. Every local union in the country ought to be holding a dinner like this.”
It was his dedication to his union brothers and sisters and his local community that earned Bradley a trip on Brotherhood Outdoors.
