First Episode Begins with Caribou Hunt in the Brooks Range –
Remaining Episodes Focus on Bears
NEW BERLIN, WI (February 23, 2015) – Mike Stroff of Savage Outdoors is no stranger to tough hunting conditions, and certainly won’t turn down an adventure. For the next four weeks on Sportsman Channel, Stroff and crew find themselves facing beautiful – yet difficult – terrain that gets them face-to-face with a nine-and-a-half foot bear. Tune in to Savage Outdoors exclusively on Sportsman Channel for Part One of the series on Tuesday, February 24 at 10 p.m. ET/PT.
“What do you think of when you think of Alaska?” asks Stroff. “Unique, rugged, tough – it is a place to experience things you’ve never experienced before – it’s truly the last frontier.”
In the first part of the series, Stroff pursues caribou, which are abundant in the Brooks Range, but that doesn’t mean they are easy to hunt. “You can’t chase them, you have to get in front of where you think the herd might be tomorrow or the next day to even have a chance at them,” said Stroff. “They are so inquisitive. Some of them have never even seen a human before.”
The remaining three episodes, scheduled to air March 3, March 10 and March 17 at 10 p.m. ET/PT, find Stroff and his crew in a predator control unit where bears are abundant. Stroff brings his bow out for the remaining episodes for both brown and black bears and, eventually, the crew find themselves up close and personal with a nine-and-a-half foot bear.
“This bear footage is like nothing we’ve ever filmed before,” effused Stroff. “Not only did we get to see many bears, but we snuck in very close to them so I could get the best shot off with my bow. It will be a real treat for viewers.”
Savage Outdoors airs exclusively on Sportsman Channel on Tuesdays at 10 p.m. ET/PT.
