The Union Sportsmen’s Alliance’s award-winning hunting and fishing TV show, Brotherhood Outdoors, will feature a late-season New Mexico elk hunt with Dan Reyes, a proud member of United Association of Plumbers and Pipefitters Local 412, at 11 a.m. ET on Sunday, February 10 on Sportsman Channel.
Also the owner of Ridgeline Outfitters out of Albuquerque, New Mexico, Reyes challenges the Brotherhood Outdoors crew to pursue stealthy New Mexico elk with only a muzzleloader, comfortable hiking boots, high energy levels and a lot of patience.
“Traversing difficult terrain, scaling rock walls and mountainsides, all while keeping the cameras rolling was only half the battle,” said Brotherhood Outdoors co-host Daniel Lee Martin. “The real trick was to get the animal within range for a primitive weapon without using any sweet-talking or traditional calls.”
Nominated by former Brotherhood Outdoors guest Jake Lovato, Reyes is one of the only professional hunting guides in New Mexico who is also a member of the UA. Guiding professionally for the last 20 years, he is also a member of the Union Sportsmen’s Alliance, Rocky Mountain Elk Foundation, Mule Deer Foundation, NRA and SCI.
“My dad taught me to appreciate the great outdoors at an early age,” said Reyes. “My outdoor way of life is very important to me and I plan to hand all of this down to my kids.”
Winner of a 2012 Sportsman Choice award, Brotherhood Outdoors awards union sportsmen and women who are committed to preserving North America’s outdoor heritage with a guided trip or the opportunity to show off their guiding skills and local hunting or fishing destinations on national TV.
Presented by Bank of Labor, Brotherhood Outdoors is also sponsored by Employee Benefit Solutions, International Association of Machinists and Aerospace Workers, International Association of Sheet Metal, Air, Rail and Transportation Workers, International Brotherhood of Boilermakers, International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers, National Electrical Contractors Association, United Association/International Training Fund as well as Buck Knives and Burris/Steiner Optics.
Tune in at 11 a.m. ET on Sunday, February 10 to Sportsman Channel to see if Reyes can lead Brotherhood Outdoors host Daniel Lee Martin to his first New Mexico elk.
