Giving back and creating lasting memories are a few of the remarkable attributes for Sportsman Channel’s Blue Collar Adventures. The television series consistently gives back through its annual “Taco Casa Get in the Hunt” giveaway, which airs Saturday, October 18 at 10 p.m. ET/PT. Host Jay Presti introduces viewers to contest winner Trisiten Rodriguez and his first-ever whitetail hunt at Harbin Triple Cross Ranch. Later, Blue Collar Adventures highlights an inspirational story about a man living out his dream of getting into a blind and searching for a dream buck.

Trisiten Rodriguez is a young man who lost his grandfather before the two ever had the chance to hunt together. Since this is Rodriquez’s first hunt, Presti walks him through the finer points of firearms safety and the unique layout of Harbin Triple Cross Ranch. The weather is not ideal, but it did not dampen the spirits of the men who take cover in their Nature Blinds for better camouflage and dryness. While glassing the expansive landscape through Vortex Optics, Rodriguez and Presti begin to locate deer movement, but will the targets turn out to be what he is looking for? Only time and patience will reveal the answers.

The episode takes a unique turn when Blue Collar Adventures invites Dan and Chad Bliss to the Harbin Triple Ranch in Texas. Chad’s father, Dan, is battling cancer and hopes for a massive buck to cross his path. True to his generous nature, Presti hosts Dan and gives him an outdoor experience that offers catharsis during a difficult time.

“Watching Trisiten and Dan experience outdoor heritage up-close is what it’s really all about,” said Jay Presti, host of Blue Collar Adventures.  “The ‘Taco Casa’ giveaway allows us a unique opportunity to share the outdoor lifestyle with others who might not otherwise have a chance. Giving back is at the core of this show and we enjoy seeing others succeed.”

The 2014 host ranch is 4M Whitetails, where one lucky winner will have an opportunity to harvest a 200-inch whitetail and earn a private concert with country artist, Kevin Fowler ( The following sponsors give away 10 weekly prizes, but only one winner will walk away with the BIG prize. Taco Casa, Cabela’s, 95.9 The Ranch, Bone Works, Insights Nutrition and ICEHOLE Performance Coolers are participating sponsors of this special show.
