DENVER (August 17, 2017) – As the solar eclipse passes through the heart of the United States, programming shines bright for Outdoor Channel, Sportsman Channel and World Fishing Network during the week of August 21–27.

Duck Dynasty continues to entertain viewers on Outdoor Channel Monday evening with four consecutive episodes that include a business trip to Arkansas, a strict “no-tech week” for the children instituted by Willie, an intense cornbread cook-off, and Willie and Korie’s 25th wedding anniversary celebration. Then, on Survival Science, hosts Laura Schara and Nick Mundt dive into the science behind the marksmanship and long range shooting expertise that military snipers train for, in addition to analyzing a variety of military skills from detection, stalking, camouflage, infiltration, special reconnaissance and target acquisition.

Next, Craig Morgan is no stranger to Texas, but there is one species he has never had an opportunity to hunt – aoudad sheep.  It doesn’t take Craig long to find himself on a big hillside with an aoudad in his crosshairs this week on Craig Morgan: All Access Outdoors. Next, on Nick’s Wild Ride, Nick Hoffman travels to the South Island of New Zealand in search of culture, big red stag and backcountry tahr. He learns from the locals what makes New Zealand unlike anywhere else in the world. Friday Night at the Movies closes out the evening with McLintock!, starring John Wayne as Rancher George Washington ‘G.W.’ McLintock, who uses his influence in the territory to keep the peace between farmers, ranchers, land-grabbers, Indians and corrupt officials.

Monday Night Hunts presented by MidwayUSA on Sportsman Channel begins with Into High Country With Jason Matzinger as Jason spends several days in his home state of Montana hunting pronghorn antelope with a rifle, until he finally picks up the Browning and looks for an exceptional pronghorn buck. Then, on Sheep Shape, Chad Hall and Rick Carone* are hard at it in British Columbia in search of stone sheep and bull moose. While weather tries to shut them down, they keep pushing. This week’s episode of Guns & Gear on Lock & Load Thursdays is full of fresh introductions, including the new Smith & Wesson M&P15 rifles, Colt Ammo from DoubleTap, SIG’s P320 air pistol, the full-featured 10 and 10S from Stag Arms, the Calvin Elite 2-Stage Rem 700 trigger from Timney and concealed carry options from Springfield Armory. Then, Guns & Ammo presented by Brownells shows how Blackhawk is accessorizing the AR. Finally, on GunVenture, Ryan Gresham heads to the Gulf Coast to go on a “Monster Hunt”: shark fishing during the day and hog hunting at night.
