Growing up as the son of an outdoor celebrity, Hank Parker Jr. has share his father’s passion of the outdoors from childhood. However, Hank did not start his professional career in the outdoors, but rather he began by driving racecars in 1996 in the NASCAR Slim Jim All Pro Series.
In 2001 he received an opportunity to drive for Cicci-Welliver racing and sponsor GNC in the NASCAR Nationwide Series where he won his first race at California Speedway and followed it up the next year with a win at Pikes Peak Speedway in Colorado. Hank Jr. has raced in all three NASCAR top touring divisions which include Craftsman Truck, Nationwide and Sprint Cup series.
He has raced for Ray Evernham in NASCAR Sprint Cup action, Chance 2 Motorsports owned by Dale Earnhardt Jr. and Rousch Racing. Along the way, he had the good fortune to work with companies such as Microsoft, Stacker 2, GNC and United States Marine Corps.
Now retired from racing, Hank Jr. has taken his passion of hunting and is a co-host of “Hank Parker 3D” airing on NBC Sports, Pursuit Channel and Wild TV. He has co-hosted the mini-series “Hunt Like a Parker” which aired on ESPN Outdoors with his brother, Billy “Catfish” Parker and his father Hank Parker. Hank Parker Jr. is a co-owner and the creative media director of Dry Creek Productions which produces “Hank Parker 3D.” Hank Jr. lives in Denver, N.C., with his wife Wendy, and children, Alex, Madison, Boone and Cade.
John Tate began his career in the outdoor industry fresh out of college! After he obtained his Communications degree from Appalachian State University, he became the very first intern at Realtree Outdoor Productions in 1998 at 21 years old. John had always been a hunter and outdoorsman, and now he could begin to apply his college education to his love of hunting.
Early on John worked hard as a videographer traveling all over the world filming hunts and adventures that found their way onto the ever popular Monster Buck video series as well as the highly rated Realtree Outdoors television show on TNN. He has hunted and filmed with several big names in the hunting industry as well as others such as Bill Jordan, David Blanton, Michael Waddell, Jim Shockey, Lee and Tiffany LaKosky, Dale Earnhardt, Chipper Jones and Jeff Foxworthy.
As his camera skills improved, so did his editing and field producing. In 2004 Realtree made a network change and headed to ESPN2! John was named the head producer for Realtree Outdoors and that put into motion a brand new look, style and feel of the show. The work was hard and the hours were long, but for four straight years on ESPN2, Realtree Outdoors was the highest rated outdoor programming on the entire network!
In 2008 he left Realtree and started Tate Productions LLC and began working with several outdoor companies such as Buck Commander, Hoyt and many others on various projects such as web clips, TV show production and commercial shoots. After moving back home to North Carolina later that year, he teamed up with Hank Parker Jr and Dry Creek Productions LLC was founded!
John gives all the credit for his success and blessings in his life to GOD. His family and friends mean a great deal to him. When he isn’t editing like a mad man or filming an adventure or commercial, John loves spending time with his family and friends, working out, enjoying music and hunting without a camera!
