Leupold® to Partner with TV’s Fred Eichler


BEAVERTON, Ore. — Leupold & Stevens, Inc., is thrilled to announce a sponsorship agreement with Fred Eichler, one of the most entertaining and veteran hunters and guides in the country. Leupold® will serve as optics sponsor of “Predator Nation” and half optics sponsor of “Easton Bowhunting TV”, both hosted by Eichler on Sportsman Channel.

“Fred represents the best in American hunting,” said Bruce Pettet, president and chief executive officer of Leupold & Stevens, Inc. “We’re fans of what he does on both shows, so we’re excited to work with him. From the variety of game he pursues, to his ability to use a wide range of skills and tactics in his weekly episodes, it’s just a great match.”

Eichler’s impressive outdoors resume includes wildlife photography, freelance writing, trapping and more than 35 years of experience in hunting. Eichler is also an experienced bowhunter, and the first person to harvest all of the 29 North American species recognized by Pope and Young with a bow.

“We are excited to be working with Leupold,” said Eichler. “It is a great company with a long-standing tradition of making products that are of the highest quality, durability and accuracy that fill our needs perfectly. As a company, we are constantly striving to support and promote American-made products, and Leupold is proudly made in the USA.”

“Predator Nation” is a high-energy show dedicated to educating viewers on how to successfully harvest predators with a variety of weapons. Eichler brings the experience of hunting predators on three different continents to the home viewer each week.

“Easton Bowhunting TV” features Eichler taking viewers on a different hunting adventure each week. With his bow in hand, his unique sense of humor and years of experience, “Easton Bowhunting TV” is a fun, educational and refreshing experience on each show.
