Chipper Jones, Atlanta Braves All-Star third baseman, is one of the most recognizable and respected names in Major League Baseball. His numerous records, awards, and statistics spanning over 15 years has assured his place in Major League Baseball’s Hall of Fame. Not only has his fame and popularity for his accomplishments on the baseball diamond brought him many awards and accolades, but his passion for hunting and love for the outdoors is fast becoming more embedded into America’s perspective when one hears the name “Chipper Jones”.
As co-owner of Major League Bowhunter, Chipper also works alongside his good friends Jeff & Duff as a host of the show, sharing his knowledge and experience as an accomplished bowhunter. His enthusiasm in the outdoors comes across not only on camera, but in the inner workings of the day to day business of the company.
Chipper has four sons, Matthew, Trey, Tristen, and Shea, and a step-son, Bryson, with his wife, Taylor.
“Bowhunting is the ultimate and I find so many similarities with baseball in that you can always learn new things that can improve your odds of success if you just soak up all the knowledge you can and learn from all your experiences!”
Matt Duff is a former Major League Baseball pitcher for the St. Louis Cardinals. He grew up in Alligator, Mississippi, along the banks of the Mississippi river. Matt grew up hunting deer, ducks and turkeys with his father, who Matt credits for making him into the avid outdoorsman he is today. Matt particularly took a liking to bow hunting at an early age and now that the sun has set on his 13 year Professional Baseball career, Matt has taken his passion for bow hunting into the hunting industry as a business owner and outdoor TV personality.
Matt is married to world renown pistol shooter, Jessie Duff. Jessie has won both world and national championship titles, included among them are the prestigious Bianchi Cup and the Steel Challenge World Speed Shooting Championships. As an owner and co-host of Major League Bowhunter, Matt spends time working on business aspects for the company as well as time in the field chasing big whitetails.
“I was raised on a farm, where I could be found juggling the farm responsibilities, playing sports in school, and hunting. I was introduced into hunting by my father, Homer Adams, at an early age. I honed my hunting skills by trial and error, and shooting competitive archery. I’ve since been very fortunate to harvest many mature bucks across the country and also have made great friends along the way.
Being in the hunting industry since 2006 has taught me many things about the art of filming outdoor adventures. My favorite part of the whole process is putting the hunts together and telling a story in post production. Along with having over 10 years of field production experience, I’ve also been producing and editing outdoor television shows since 2010 including every episode of Major League Bowhunter.
I married my wife, Brianne, in the spring of 2009, and we have two beautiful daughters, Addison Rae and Brooke Kaylynn. I thank them so much for allowing me to pursue my passion, and believe it or not, I love them more than hunting. I’m grateful they are just as passionate about me coming home with a big buck as I am!”
