In 2005, Parker and his sons, Hank Jr., and Billy, began televising their hunts. “Parker’s Flesh and Blood” and “Hank Parkers Outdoor Magazine” are both airing on the Outdoor Channel. Parker has been inducted into the Bass Fishing Hall of Fame, the Legends of the Outdoors Hall of Fame and The International Game Fish Association Hall of Fame.

Parker will share his testimony of what God has done in his life. He and his wife, Martha, reside in Union, South Carolina and they have eight children and 11 grandchildren.
