DENVER (June 29, 2017) – Summer heats up the week of July 3–9 with original premieres and new episodes from returning series on Outdoor Channel, Sportsman Channel and World Fishing Network.

Outdoor Channel kicks off Monday night with honor, patriotism, and celebration on Duck Dynasty. First, Jase receives a pallet of fireworks as a gift, so he and the guys create a homemade fireworks display for the Robertson family “4th of July” barbeque while Uncle Si is honored by the veterans association and given his own exhibit at a local military museum. Then, from wedding planning and dress shopping, to the rehearsal dinner and the big wedding day, it’s a joyous time for the Robertson family as guests travel from all over the world, in a very special episode documenting the wedding of John Luke Robertson and Mary Kate. Next, survival goes high tech with the premiere of Outdoor Channel’s new original series, Survival Science. In this episode, hosts Nick Mundt and Laura Schara put danger to the test and explore the immense power and startling speed of grizzly bears. They use Hollywood stunt tools to experience an attack, then try to recreate a miracle arrow shot that saved a man from being killed by a bear.

Later in the week, early season whitetail hunting in the bluegrass state never disappoints on Craig Morgan: All Access Outdoors as Craig heads to his all-time favorite hunting blinds at Ellie May Outfitters with his daughter and son-in-law. The 1950 western film, The Gunfighter, closes the week on Friday Night at the Movies. Notorious gunfighter Jimmy Ringo (Gregory Peck) rides into town to find his true love, but trouble finds him instead.
