Two New Television Series Air on Sportsman Channel This Season
OutdoorHub Reporters 01.27.12
Sportsman Channel’s Director of Communications Michelle Scheuermann announced the new television series premiering on Sportsman Channel this season while she was at SHOT Show.
The most exciting show to look for is Meat Eater, by the same man who brought you The Wild Within. One successful TV series, two books, and multiple magazine articles later, Steve Rinella continues to embrace his hunter roots in a civilization founded on hunting and gathering. In the show he pursues big game like black bear and mountain lion, waterfowl, wild pig and more to prepare the freshest meal with each day’s harvest.
Another new series premiering on Sportsman Channel will be Dropped: Project Alaska (check out an exclusive interview with the guys from D:PJ here) where two brothers from Michigan, Casey and Chris Keffer, are left alone in the wilderness of Alaska with nothing but their hunting supplies for one month. Their mission is to wind down a river, setting up camp in a new location each time and testing the grounds for their hunting opportunities.
And don’t forget about all the other shows currently on air like Bowhunter TV, Relentless Pursuit, The Edge, Pigman: The Series, and Outdoor Junkies.
Watch below to hear another exciting announcement by Scheuermann, what time the shows air and where you can catch The Sportsman Channel.
