Former defensive end Derek Wolfe, now famous for slaying a mountain lion just months into his football retirement, is releasing a signature series of big game hunting calls with Slayer.
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Eagle, Idaho, August 17, 2023- Before Derek Wolfe was tackling QBs and winning Super Bowls in the NFL, he was hunting game big and small with a bow.
Now, he’s partnering with Slayer Calls to release his own line of elk-hunting calls in February 2024. The Wolfe Untamed Signature Series will be the go-to package for hunters pushing their limits and testing their skills in the mountains.
“Slayer is an awesome company run by some really great people, and I’m so grateful to be a part of the Slayer family,” Wolfe said.
Wolfe and Slayer are launching the Wolfe Untamed Signature Series at the Western Hunting & Conservation Expo in Salt Lake City from Feb. 15-18. Wolfe will be signing autographs in the Slayer Calls booth for fans inspired by Wolfe’s adventures in the field – or his professional athletic pursuits on the field.
Wolfe might be better known for his unyielding pursuit of quarterbacks during his 10-season career with the Denver Broncos and Baltimore Ravens, but made national news for hunting a Colorado mountain lion not long into his retirement.
Since then, the ex-football player has launched his own web series and podcast, Wolfe Untamed, to share his bow-hunting adventures across the country. He’s been a guest on The MeatEater Podcast and The Joe Rogan Experience, and he graced the cover of Eastmans’ Journal with his big cat in his arms.
“Derek’s relentless obsession with hunting inspires others to be successful in the field,” said Slayer CEO Bill Ayer. “He invites them to join us while we chase our passions in the outdoors.”
