Spring Hill, Tenn.—Journeyman electrician Dustin Morgan travels from Mexico, New York to northeast Utah in hopes of putting his archery tag on a velvet mule deer buck on an episode of Brotherhood Outdoors airing this week on Sportsman Channel.
For Morgan, a member of the International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers (IBEW) Local 43, spotting and stalking trophy mule deer over rolling, sage covered hills is a brand new experience. It’s even more meaningful because his father Don, also a union member and Morgan’s longtime hunting partner, is there to witness it.
Hours of scouting and glassing numerous shootable bucks pays off when the pair and their guide find “Captain Hook” in a spot that allows Morgan to make a stealthy stalk into bow range.
“Hunting the West is something I’ve always wanted to do,” said Morgan. “This was an amazing experience for me, especially being out there with my father, and I want to thank the USA for all of it.”
Brotherhood Outdoors also offers a behind the scenes look at the everyday lives of hardworking union members. In this episode, Morgan installs a new fire alarm network at the high school he attended as a student.
“I graduated from Hannibal High in 2004 and joined the union right away,” he said. “I’m a third-generation IBEW member and have been working in this trade for over 17 years now. It’s treated me great, and I love it.”
