The Union Sportsmen’s Alliance will debut Brotherhood Outdoors, a unique hunting and fishing series that showcases the talents and passions of Union members at 8 p.m. (ET) on Thursdays, starting June 30 exclusively on Sportsman Channel.
Hosted by noted outdoorsman Tom Ackerman, Brotherhood Outdoors puts Union members in the spotlight, giving them the opportunity to join Ackerman for a quality outfitted North American trip of their choosing or to act as his guide, taking him to their favorite hunting or fishing location.
Each week, viewers will get an intimate glimpse into the lives of these unique, blue-collar characters, their passion for the outdoors and their desire to make a difference by volunteering for a cause, serving as a leader in their community or helping to carry on America’s outdoor legacy.
“We are extremely proud of our members and their commitment to the great outdoors,” said USA Executive Director, Fred Myers. “Partnering with Sportsman Channel allows us to honor some of the hardest working men and women in the country by showcasing their enthusiasm for hunting, fishing and conservation on national TV.”
Guests on this season’s episodes will include a mix of pipefitters, sheet metal workers, electrical workers, painters, firefighters and more, who pursue a variety of trophy fish and game throughout the country.
The premiere episode on June 30 will feature an adrenaline-pumping Texas Whitetail hunt with Jake Lovato a UA pipefitter, metal sculptor and avid community volunteer from Bernalillo, New Mexico.
The USA and Sportsman Channel are also teaming up for a Watch & Win sweepstakes in conjunction with the show’s debut. One lucky Union viewer will win a state-of-the-art home theater system valued at nearly $5,000, which features a 50” LG TruSlim Frame Plasma TV, Bose 321 GS home entertainment system and Lane Alpine Swivel Recliner.
