Academy is the exclusive apparel provider of “BuckVentures: The Woodsman”

KATY, TEXAS (November 14, 2017) - Academy, Ltd. (d/b/a Academy Sports + Outdoors), a sports, outdoor and recreation lifestyle retailer committed to offering everyday low prices, has launched the Magellan Outdoors Camo Collection exclusively at all 240+ Academy Sports + Outdoors locations and online at academy.com.

In addition to this launch, Academy is partnering with BuckVentures: The Woodsman as the show’s official title sponsor and exclusive supplier and advertiser of apparel, footwear, backpacks, feeders, ground blinds and shotguns.

Expertly crafted for all hunters – men, women and children – and at an everyday low price, the Magellan Outdoors Camo Collection is dedicated to helping more families get outdoors with the gear they need for a successful hunting season. The collection features both insulated and noninsulated gear for all the temperatures and environments hunters may encounter, as well as species-specific camouflage patterns designed primarily by Realtree.

“Whether you’re a professional hunter like our partners at BuckVentures or a novice, the Magellan Outdoors Camo Collection will get you in the field at a price you can afford,” said Eli Getson, Academy’s senior vice president, general merchandising manager, apparel. “It offers best in class value with all the technical benefits and functionalities expected and relied on by hunters. The Magellan Outdoors Camo collection is a perfect example of how Academy makes it easier for everyone, especially hunters, to enjoy more sports and outdoors.”

Some of the premium features in the cold-weather gear include scent elimination and silent technology for stealth movement, waterproof and windproof technology, and added flex for maximum motion. For warm-weather hunts, breathable, lightweight and moisture-wicking gear helps keep hunters cool.

“My family and I hunt all over the country, and the Magellan Outdoors Camo Collection is great for any environment,” said Jeff Danker, host of BuckVentures: The Woodsman. “It has all the technology we need, fits the whole family, and Academy Sports + Outdoors offers it at a great price.”

Customers can see the Magellan Outdoors Camo Collection in action on BuckVentures: The Woodsman on the Sportsman Channel as Danker, his daughters Jaylee and Gracie, and friends Daniel McVay and Buddy Groom hunt game throughout the Midwest and beyond.
