Who We Are

The Bearded Buck is an Outdoor Entertainment Company located in Western Pennsylvania. Founder of The Bearded Buck, Jerry Tibbott, developed the idea about 10 years ago as a practical joke between himself and one of his hunting buddies but has since grown into much more. The Bearded Buck has transformed into an Outdoor Lifestyle Brand. We dedicate ourselves to not only being deer and turkey stewards, but land stewards as well.

Jerry "J-Rod" Tibbott

J-Rod is the owner and founder of The Bearded Buck; he is what you might call the Original Bearded Buck! Born and raised in west Central PA, and at the ripe age of 45, Jerry has many years of hunting & outdoor experience under his belt. Although he has harvested much game, it’s the path to harvesting that’s the passion for Jerry; he enjoys sharing his knowledge with family & friends to help them become better outdoorsmen and good stewards of their land and the game that thrives there. Managing his farms for quality whitetail & turkey hunting and creating a habitat for this game drives Jerry daily; passing these principles down to the next generation is something that is very important to him. He realizes that we are all simply stewards of the land and it is our job to leave it – and the game that is living there – in better shape for the next generation that it was before he managed it. He has strong family values and hunting with his son and daughter are some of his most memorable hunts. His life is based on family, friends, and all things outdoors; hunting, managing deer and turkey, food plotting, and shed hunting.

Founding The Bearded Buck is the next step towards sharing these passions with our viewers, and Jerry is excited to see where this group of family & friends can take the brand in his hopes for it becoming a successful outdoor entertainment company. Success is not always measured in awards, achievement, or wealth; rather, this success is measured in memories & friendships!
