Algoma resident featured on ‘Brotherhood Outdoors’ TV series
ALGOMA – Kevin Seiler of Algoma grew up following his grandfather’s and father’s footsteps in his life’s work and in his family’s love of outdoor pursuits.
Both stories poignantly unfold in an episode of the Union Sportsmen’s Alliance's "Brotherhood Outdoors" television series that aired this week on the Sportsman Channel.
The episode will be aired at 3 p.m. Tuesday, at 10:30 a.m. Wednesday and 12:30 a.m. and 8 p.m. Saturday as well as 10 a.m. Sunday.
Produced by Rusted Rooster Media, "Brotherhood Outdoors" invites hardworking and deserving union members on fishing or hunting adventures of a lifetime.
Every episode of "Brotherhood Outdoors" also takes viewers to the homes, communities and job sites of these tireless American workers for an inspirational glimpse at their backstories before heading onto the water or into the field.

Along the way, the show offers snapshots of the USA’s community-based conservation, public access, outreach and mentorship efforts by a dedicated, all-volunteer union labor force.
Like his father before him, Seiler is a member of the International Brotherhood of Boilermakers Local 449, and through three generations he, his father and grandfather have cultivated a 75-year shipbuilding heritage in Sturgeon Bay.
That strong family tradition also extends to working the 350-acre family farm his grandfather started in 1946 as well as to the many hunting and fishing adventures they have enjoyed together.
In the episode, after traveling by air, road, ATV trail and boat to a remote part of Saskatchewan near the town of Nipawin, Seiler settles into a log-frame trapper’s cabin that will be home and headquarters during his quest for a bruiser whitetail buck on the 100,000-acre hunting concession operated by Big Iron Outfitters.
Surrounded by boreal forest stretching hundreds of miles in every direction and embraced by the snow and bitter cold, Seiler and USA Director of Conservation and Community Outreach Forrest Parker play a white-knuckle waiting game — until the hunter’s buck arrives.
As season 11 of the series continues, viewers can tag along with guests in pursuit of black bears on Vancouver Island, permit and bonefish in Mexico, waterfowl in Saskatchewan and more.
