Lemoyne, Penn.— Veteran prison inspector Stephen Noll of Lemoyne, Pennsylvania, sets his sights on trophy Ohio whitetail bucks when he appears in an episode of the Union Sportsmen’s Alliance’s (USA) Brotherhood Outdoors television series airing Saturday, Oct. 6 through the week of Oct. 7 on Sportsman Channel.
Noll, a prison inspector for the Pennsylvania Department of Corrections and member of AFSCME Council 13, was chosen to appear on the show based on his commitment to his profession and local community during 17 years of service.
Noll was introduced to firearms hunting by his father at the age of 16, but didn’t take up archery deer hunting until 2011 while recovering from a series of surgeries. He quickly became a diehard archer in hot pursuit of his dream to put a big buck on lockdown.
During this episode of Brotherhood Outdoors, Noll travels to the legendary whitetail country outside Killbuck, Ohio, to hunt with Wolf Creek Outfitters. Deer are plentiful but mature bucks prove elusive as the clock winds down on Noll’s adventure.
Emotions are high and the waiting games are long until opportunity finally knocks. “This was to the hunt of a lifetime,” Noll recalls. “The Union Sportsmen’s Alliance did it right and gave me an experience I’ll never forget—ever.”
Catch all the exciting action when Noll’s episode airs Saturday Oct. 6 at 6:30 p.m. as part of Sportsman Channel’s Buck Fever Marathon. It airs again Tuesday, Oct. 9 at 4 p.m. Eastern, then again Wednesday at 11:30 a.m., Saturday at 1:30 a.m. and Sunday at 11 a.m. Eastern.
Award-winning Brotherhood Outdoors is currently in its 10th season of whisking hardworking union members away on action-packed hunting and fishing adventures. Produced by creative powerhouse Rusted Rooster Media, the series puts the spotlight on union members who are as passionate about the outdoors as they are about keeping the country running. Each episode takes viewers to the homes, communities and jobsites of these tireless American workers for an inspirational glimpse at their backstories before heading onto the water or into the field.
The 2018 Brotherhood Outdoors season features union members in pursuit of New Mexico elk, Wyoming pronghorns, Mexican permit and bonefish, Saskatchewan waterfowl and black bears, Louisiana redfish and trophy whitetails in Illinois and Ohio. Along the way, the show also offers snapshots of the USA’s community-based conservation, public access, outreach and mentorship efforts, which are executed by an all-volunteer union labor force.
