Deer Week 2020

DENVER (September 9, 2020) Outdoor Channel and Sportsman Channel launch year four of Outdoor Sportsman Group Networks’ programming initiative to welcome the Fall hunting season – #DeerWeek presented by Academy Sports + Outdoors – on September 14-20 (7 p.m.–Midnight). Sportsman Channel host Jeff Danker and country music recording artist Tyler Farr provide viewers with fun, exciting and educational perspectives – in their inimitable style – about deer hunting and the upcoming season.

“This year marks the fourth annual #DeerWeek programming initiative,” Outdoor Sportsman Group President and CEO Jim Liberatore said. “While 2020 has seen its share of ups-and-downs, Outdoor Channel and Sportsman Channel will focus on the excitement, camaraderie, adventure and anticipation for what we hope will be a fruitful deer hunting season.”

#DeerWeek, launched in 2017, is a unique, week-long, cross-platform event featuring primetime programming showcasing deer-specific content on Outdoor Channel and Sportsman Channel. This year marks the fourth consecutive year of this specialized programming event.

About Jeff Danker: Jeff is co-owner and manager of BVO Productions. He started BuckVentures in 2003 with the motto “Shoot by Sight, Walk by Faith” based off of 2 Corinthians 5:7 and has been hosting hunting shows ever since. Jeff spent time as a professional team roper before starting his career in television. In addition to hunting for a living, Jeff speaks about his faith in churches all across the country.

About Tyler Farr: Authentic and unapologetic, Tyler Farr records songs he would listen to in his truck – windows down, sound up. It just so happens country music fans want to hear the same songs. Without pandering or compromise, Farr’s powerhouse vocals, real-guy relatability, and willingness to mine emotional themes and personal imperfection resonates with people searching to find themselves in the music that underscores their daily routines and future dreams. With three No. 1 songs (“Redneck Crazy,” “Whiskey in My Water,” and “A Guy Walks Into a Bar”) and a growing string of hits, they found it in Farr. And like a weathered truck with rusty tail pipes, it can get a little loud and gritty.
