United Association (UA) member Skip Barrington pursues waterfowl from western Nebraska to Lake Ontario on an episode of the Union Sportsmen’s Alliance (USA) Brotherhood Outdoors TV series airing the week of November 25 on the Sportsman Channel.
Barrington, of Magnolia, Texas, is a member of UA Local 211. An avid hunter, he’s shared duck blinds and deer camps for 30 years with longtime hunting partner, Curtis O’Brien. Together, the friends share an epic hunting adventure on the national airwaves with Brotherhood Outdoors.
On Nebraska’s famous Platte River, the pair shoot mallards and Canada geese from a sunken shipping container that’s been outfitted as a deluxe pit blind. Then, when the weather forces them to change their tactics, they head for New York for their first-ever pursuit of long-tailed ducks on Lake Ontario.
“Going to Nebraska, where I got my first Canada goose, then hunting sea ducks in New York was a dream come true,” said Barrington. “Another amazing adventure for Curtis and I.”
Brotherhood Outdoors then follows the friends back to Texas, where they participate in the USA’s 10th Annual Houston Area Sporting Clays Shoot to help raise money for critical conservation projects.
