“North American Whitetail” Celebrates 100 Years of the World-Record James Jordan Buck

November 20, 2014

NEW BERLIN, WI (November 10, 2014) Sportsman Channel’s North American Whitetail is celebrating 100 years of the James Jordan buck – one of the greatest typical whitetails ever harvested – on   Wednesday, November 12 at 8 p.m. ET/PT.  Gordon Whittington and Pat Hogan, hosts, provide the story behind the massive buck whose history is anything but ordinary. North American Whitetail airs exclusively on Sportsman Channel

NAW-10thanniversary-300x300Whittington walks in the footsteps of James Jordan and tells the story of an avid outdoorsman, whose love of hunting would lead, unbeknownst to him, to a world-record sized buck. Jordan’s whitetail story began in Danbury, Wisconsin and ended at a garage sale in Minnesota – or so he thought.  Jordan harvested a buck and delivered it to a taxidermist who never returned his prized deer. Years later, in a twist of fate, Jordan is reunited with his buck. But by the time Boone & Crockett declared its world-record status, Jordan had passed away a mere two months prior, leaving behind a legacy and the James Jordan Buck.

The buck is classified as one of the “greats” not only because of its size, but because of the Wisconsin whitetail’s well-known story throughout the hunting community. Not only will viewers hear the tale behind the whitetail, but they also will have the chance to hear interviews from surviving members of Jordan’s family. And Whittington has the opportunity to join local Danbury residents for a James Jordan Buck celebration.

“The James Jordan Buck is considered a legend around here at North American Whitetail,” said Whittington. “There are world-record bucks out there, though not many, but few have a history and story behind it like this one. A great story lives on when people share it, and that’s exactly what we intend to do.”

Check out the exclusive article with an in-depth history of the James Jordan Buck by the editor of North American Whitetail magazine, Gordon Whittington.
