New Berlin, WI – November 2, 2011 – Sportsman Channel, the leader in outdoor TV for the American Sportsman, is proud to showcase an unforgettable episode of Hardcore Pursuit entitled, “Utah Muleys.”  Viewers will experience a great deal of “running and gunning” and non-stop action as the crew from HCP” skirts the majestic Utah landscape in pursuit of Muleys.  The deer movement is plentiful as the team is generally exposed to 30-50 deer on a daily basis – most of them bucks! After much running and crawling, host Mike Pelletier’s patience is rewarded by tagging a mature Velvet Muley. You can watch the action unfold on Thursday, November 3 at 6 p.m. EST.

The action was fast and furious in the Utah high county as Pelletier and his team implemented some “Running and Gunning”- A cross between spot and stalk and intercepting deer as they head to bed and feed. The team from Hardcore Pursuit positions themselves in a high vantage point to survey the area with hopes of spotting that “perfect” buck.

“Not only will viewers see exceptional Muleys, but they will also take in some of the most scenic landscape in the country,” said Mike Pelletier, host of Hardcore Pursuit. “This was a great hunt as I was fortunate to harvest a 5-year old Velvet Muley that took a lot of work.  I ended up stalking this buck after glassing him from a mile away.  We had to hustle to get into position for an opening. I took a shot from 75 yards with my bow and the buck went down in 100 yards. We recovered the buck at first light the next morning.”
