Apply Now for the Hunting or Fishing Trip of a Lifetime on Escape to the Wild

You’ve watched your union brothers and sisters travel to Africa, Costa Rica, Canada, the Rocky Mountains and other incredible destinations for once-in-a-lifetime hunting and fishing adventures. Now, it’s your chance. You could be next to win the trip of your dreams and appear on national television on season three of Escape to the Wild.

Escape to the Wild is a TV program of the Theodore Roosevelt Conservation Partnership, VERSUS Network and several of America’s leading trade unions and contractor associations that honors hardworking union members with the hunting or fishing trip of a lifetime.

On season three of the popular program, lucky winners will venture to Argentina to hunt majestic red stag; join professional angler Byron Velvick for top-notch Texas bass fishing, trek Canada’s expansive tundra to hunt caribou and run and gun for upland bird at a top-notch lodge. And that’s just a few of the adrenaline-pumping adventures lined up for the best season yet.

Escape to the Wild is the real deal, making dreams come true for union members just like you with a passion for hunting, fishing and the great outdoors. When season two winner Jay Rodriguez was asked if he thought he had a good shot at winning, he responded, “Oh no. You just fill out entries and send them in. You never expect to win.” But Jay did win, and so can you.
