Wild Times April 2024

“The one time it happens right, you remember it forever. It’s a feeling you can’t replace. Sometimes it’s heartache. Sometimes you’re on the top of the world.” - Jordan Shipley

Jordan Shipley’s career has taken him from the Friday night lights to the pre-dawn light of a South Texas deer blind. A high school and later college football star, Jordan’s NFL career was cut short due to injury. Now he takes the same focus that he brought to a football field to his lifelong passion for hunting.

That’s why he’s joining with Texas Parks and Wildlife Foundation (TPWF) to celebrate the remarkable work of conserving the wild things and wild places of Texas.

You can read about Jordan’s story in the pages of Texas Monthly. Texas Monthly just released a new video about Jordan, too.
