New Berlin, WI – October 27, 2011 – Hunting Canada geese and riding in a Blackhawk helicopter – sounds like a recipe for great TV! Sportsman Channel, the leader in outdoor TV for the American Sportsman, is proud to showcase the latest episode of The Fowl Life with Chad Belding. Entitled “Blackhawk Down, Part 1”, host Chad Belding and “Team Fowl Life” travel to Colorado with American (Iraqi) veterans for world-class Canadian goose hunting. They also experience American military training with a ride in Blawkhawk helicopter and fire Howitzer guns that were used in war. Simply put, this episode is about giving back to American military by sharing in the outdoors with moments of laughter, smiles, tears and immense pride in America. Watch this captivating episode of The Fowl Life on Sunday, October 30 at 9:30 p.m. EST.
Team Fowl Life chased the migration on the Front Range of Colorado (near Fort Collins) and also trained with the soldiers at Camp Ripley in Minnesota. The soldiers experienced Canada geese decoying at 15 yards as they pull up and out of their blinds to harvest several birds, including 13 out of one flock.
“The Veterans were awesome shots and got out of their blinds to shoot faster than anybody I have encountered on a hunt,” said Belding, host of The Fowl Life with Chad Belding. “I want the overall feeling to be that hunting is the common denominator. We all came together because of this rich heritage. I also had the distinct privilege of “pinning” a new soldier (Sergeant Chris Eisminger) to a new rank which truly humbled me.”
“Blackhawk Down – Part 1” will also include many interviews with soldiers in uniform and hunting gear discussing their opportunity to hunt and protect their fellow Americans. Viewers will also see Team Fowl Life train with the marines and will see the soldiers present Belding with an Iraqi Freedom Flag from their tank convoy.
