New Berlin, WI September 19, 2011– Sportsman Channel, the leader in outdoor TV for the American Sportsman, is proud to showcase New York Giants’ two-time all-pro defensive end, Justin Tuck, this week on Bowhunter TV. Tuck joins co-hosts Mike Carney and Curt Wells along with special guests Terry Rohm and Mike Mattly on an action-packed bowhunt for javelina in South Texas. This adrenaline filled hunt showcases Tuck’s ability to “hit” javelina just as hard as he sacks opposing quarterbacks. Don’t miss this EYE-opening episode of Bowhunter TV on Friday, September 23 at 10 p.m. EST.
It’s no secret; Justin Tuck is NOT a small man, which makes things interesting when he’s hunting, especially in a cactus-filled environment! Standing at six-feet, five-inches and weighing 275 pounds, Tuck had his work cut out for him in the South Texas brush chasing lightning-fast javelina. Hosts Mike Carney and Curt Wells are on the hunt to provide some local knowledge of the area, and Tuck takes full advantage of the opportunity to get in some off-season hunting. Standing alongside an abandoned ranch road, Tuck spots a pack of javelina and goes into third-and-long mode, connecting on his first javelina of the day from 30 yards with a pinpoint shot.
Tuck and his teammates from Bowhunter TV are having such a good time they decide to run up the score, connecting both on stalks and animals coming to the call. After more spot and stalk action, Tuck lines up his second target and “sacks” another javelina – from 42 yards.
“We were delighted to have Justin participate in the show with us,” said Mike Carney, host, Bowhunter TV. “He doesn’t get the chance to chase many animals during the fall season due to his job requirements, but in spite of that he’s taken a number of great whitetails, bear and African game. Justin has great instincts and knows how to stalk and shoot a bow as well as any athlete I’ve ever come across. It’s obvious why he’s so successful on the football field. He showed our team that he’s not only a hardcore bowhunter, but also an exceptionally fun personality to share camp with.”
“This trip was absolutely awesome,” said Tuck. “I felt like I knew the guys for years. The hunting was non-stop action, with challenging shooting situations and lightning-fast quarry. I like Bowhunter TV because the shows are packed with information; you learn the right way to do it to be more successful.”
Bowhunter TV begins its season with more action-packed bowhunts and helpful how-to tips than ever before with Hosts Mike Carney and Equipment Editor Curt Wells.
