New Berlin, WI – (September 23, 2011)– Sportsman Channel, the leader in outdoor TV for the American Sportsman, is taking viewers of Peterson’s HUNTING Adventures, presented by Federal Premium, on a management hunt that combines jaw dropping excitement with memorable humor. For the first time in the five season history of their show, all four hosts from Petersen’s HUNTING Adventures join together for an unforgettable management deer hunt in South Texas. Hosts Craig Boddington, Kevin Steele, Mike Schoby and Greg Rodriquez made the most of this unique five-day hunt by harvesting three impressive bucks. You can watch this one-of-a-kind reunion on Sunday, September 25 at 8:30 pm EST.
The weather was a slightly on the warm side for good deer movement, however when it was all said and done, the big “winner” of the group was Rodriquez as he tagged a 12-point buck with his rifle. Generally, there is an 8-point max on a management hunt, however this particular ranch allowed10-points or better – as long as the buck was at least five and half years or older. Steele and Schoby also enjoyed success as they each “bagged” a buck from their stands.
“The idea behind the Deer Camp episode was to get myself and my co-hosts Craig Boddington, Mike Schoby and Greg Rodriquez on a hunt together for the first time,” said Kevin Steele, co-host. “One deer camp, four hosts, five days – what could possibly go wrong? Deer Camp is our salute to a time-honored tradition among American males. It pre-dates poker nights and tailgate parties.”
Not only did this prodigious group harvest three impressive bucks, but they also tagged one javalina and one hog – both with a ten point crossbows.
This memorable hunt would not be complete without some good old fashion “shenanigans” between friends. One example of their fun will show Schoby’s whitetail deer pencil puppet head that dangles outside the blind while the camera is recording. Another moment of levity came when Boddington and Steele sing “kumbaya” around the camp – just a couple of many funny moments in Petersen’s Hunting.
Petersen’s HUNTING Adventures is in its sixth season on the air as one of America’s favorite hunting shows. Travel the globe in search of the world’s most sought-after big game trophies with Petersen’s HUNTING experts’ Craig Boddington, Kevin Steele, Dick Metcalf, Mike Schoby and Greg Rodriquez.
