"Major League Bowhunter" is a show that captures the bow hunting experience in a new and comprehensive way. Jeff Danker, formerly of the show "Buckventures Outdoors", and Matt Duff, who was an MLB pitcher for the St. Louis Cardinals, co-host the show. Viewers will follow the two outdoorsmen through an entire hunting season, and observe and learn from their successes and failures.

The concept behind the show is simple. Everyone who takes up the bow has his or her own style and method. By seeing others in action, hunters have an opportunity to learn new techniques and tricks that may have otherwise been unknown to them. Typical hunting shows seem like highlight reels (merely compiling footage of spectacular kills, while cutting scenes of the set-up and demoralizing misses or post-kill action) and offer little opportunity for viewers to learn. "Major League Bowhunter" differs in that it bares all. Viewers see how the hosts do everything from preparing for a hunt to reflecting on things at the end a season. Viewers are taken on a roller coaster by celebrating great kills and lamenting near misses, learning at every opportunity.

The hosts do not claim to offer expert advice on bow hunting (though they are well-seasoned), but want to offer fellow hunters another perspective and way of doing things. This is why "Major League Bowhunters" will focus less on the size of the deer and more on the story behind the hunt. By seeing every nuance and emotion of the season, any particular viewer -- whether novice or veteran -- will be able to relate and learn from Danker and Duff. This is ultimately what they hope a person will get out of the show: a (or many) nugget(s) that can be placed in any hunter's playbook and taken on the hunt leading to more successful endings.
