“Survival Science” on Outdoor Channel

DENVER (August 25, 2017) – With cooler temperatures on the horizon and fall hunting preparations underway, Outdoor Channel, Sportsman Channel and World Fishing Network continue to entertain viewers August 28–September 3.

Outdoor Channel kicks off Monday evening with three consecutive episodes of Duck Dynasty. This week includes a business trip to Scotland for the entire family, a chicken coop renovation, and a thoroughbred race at a local race track. Then, on Survival Science, Laura Schara and Nick Mundt create daring tests to 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.

Next, Craig Morgan buys a cabin in one of his favorite spots in Alaska and spends time settling in on Craig Morgan: All Access Outdoors. Then, 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 ends the week with the film Hang ‘Em High, starring Clint Eastwood as Marshal Je Cooper. When an innocent man barely survives a lynching, he returns as a lawman determined to bring the vigilantes to justice.

Sportsman Channel starts the week with Monday Night Hunts presented by MidwayUSA. First, on Into High Country With Jason Matzinger, Jason joins his girlfriend, Cassandra Chwialkowski, in Argentina as she spots a mature axis buck with her bow for the shot she’s been waiting for her whole life. Then, on Sheep Shape, Chad Hall and Rick Carone* are in British Columbia in search of stone sheep and bull moose, and Rick recovers his lone black wolf. Next, on Lock & Load Thursdays, it’s all-copper Barnes bullets loaded in Remington ammo, great for whitetail, on Guns & Gear. Finally, Doublestar adds to one of the reasons why hand gunners love the 1911 pistol with the new PhD pistol on Guns & Ammo presented by Brownells.
