BuckVentures: The Woodsman is all about family, good friends and chasing critters all over the Midwest and beyond! Jeff Danker, along with his daughters Jaylee and Gracie Danker, Buddy Groom, and Daniel McVay are hunters that just love God’s great outdoors. BuckVentures’ crew knows what it takes to harvest mature animals. Year after year they put the work in and show what it takes to make it happen.
Brandon Adams co-hosts Buckventures’ The Woodsman. Brandon is the editor/producer for
Major League Bowhunter. He grew up farming and playing sports in school in central
Oklahoma. Being outdoors trapping, noodling, fishing, and hunting was a year round pastime
for Brandon as a child. The joy of outdoor sporting led him to pursue a career in outdoor
television. After being accepted to BVO’s Pro Staff in 2006, Brandon began filming Jeff
Danker full-time in 2008. Aside from filming many great bucks hitting the ground, he also has
put a few of his own in the truck. These include a 192” Kansas muzzleloader buck in 2009,
and a 170” Kansas bow buck in 2013.
Daniel was raised in Weston, West Virginia. He grew up hunting with his father from age 3, and was hunting on his own by age 7. Daniel guided hunts in Pike County and along the way, Daniel met Jeff Danker, and so began Daniel’s role in Buckventures Outdoors. Jeff and Daniel’s friendship bloomed into Daniel joining the Buckventures Pro-Staff, and today Daniel is the land manager and co-host for BuckVentures: The Woodsman.
Buddy Groom is co-owner of BVO Productions. He lives in Ovilla, Texas with his wife, Angela, and their 5 children. Buddy played professional baseball for 19 years; with 13 of those years in the majors. He was raised in a Christian home where his father was a minister of music. Hunting has been a lifelong passion and he considers himself blessed to be a part of the hunting industry.
Brandon Danker co-hosts Buckventures’ The Woodsman. Brandon is a field producer for Major
League Bowhunter and films Chipper Jones. He also co-owns a roofing company with his
father Eldon. He grew up with his older brother, Jeff, in Chandler, Oklahoma. Brandon’s
talent as a horseman was evident at an early age, and he is still actively team roping in
rodeos when he isn’t hunting. Hunting is second nature to him as it is with most men in his
family, and he will sit through a snow storm in Kansas just for the pure joy of being out in the
elements to hunt whitetail bucks.
