Denver, CO -( Jordan Shipley brings his athleticism and love of the great outdoors to the television screen every week as co-host of Outdoor Channel’s The Bucks of Tecomate.

The former Texas Longhorn, two-time All-American receiver and third-round NFL draft pick of the Cincinnati Bengals has taken viewers all across the United States in pursuit of giant whitetails. Together with Tecomate Co-Founder and Chairman David Morris, food plot pioneer and Co-Founder Dr. Gary Schwarz, and country music songwriter and wife Sunny Shipley, Jordan helps outdoorsmen and women realize their own hunting dreams by sharing cutting-edge management concepts and strategies for monster bucks.

In this week’s episode of The Bucks of Tecomate, titled “Pre-Rut Double Down,” Jordan and his friend Sam Shackelford chase massive bucks on the Wilson Ranch – 10,000 acres of expansive terrain located in south-central Kansas. It was an early season, pre-rut hunt and Traditions Muzzleloaders were the rifle of choice for the two.

While the episode airs, Jordan will be tweeting live from his @Jordan_Shipley Twitter handle, sharing tales of his riveting monster buck adventures on Season One of the TV series. Want to ask him how he’s been able to translate his skills from the football field into the great outdoors? Or chat about his trip to Montana to hunt elk and mule deer while filming the second season of The Bucks of Tecomate? He’ll answer all those questions and more.

@OUTDChannel will also be highlighting moments from the gripping half-hour episode on Twitter. And if you tweet @YamahaOutdoors using the #BucksofTecomate hashtag, you will have the chance to win one of many great prizes, including a Micro-Start XP-1 by Antigravity Batteries.

After years of squeezing in fall hunts between football practices and games, Jordan is reveling in his newfound freedom. In a recent Sports Illustrated article, he stated: “My biggest hobby in life was hunting and fishing. To actually get to do your biggest hobby as your job—it just doesn’t get any better than that. What I’m doing now is my ultimate dream.”

Jordan amazed fans with record-setting performances during his football days. Now the avid bowhunter is gaining the attention of a new set of enthusiasts in his first season as co-host of The Bucks of Tecomate on Outdoor Channel. And he’s looking forward to the opportunity to directly engage with them through this live Twitter Q&A session.

Tweet at Jordan using @Jordan_Shipley and Outdoor Channel using @OUTDChannel, and tweet @YamahaOutdoors with the tag #BucksofTecomate for a chance to win prizes.
