DENVER (August 31, 2017) – The week of September 4–10 begins with a celebration dedicated to the social and economic achievements of American workers, and Outdoor Channel, Sportsman Channel and World Fishing Network viewers continue to be entertained by their favorite outdoorsmen and women.

Four ducks are better than one on Outdoor Channel, with four consecutive episodes of Duck Dynasty. On Labor Day Monday, the Robertson’s shenanigans include a real-life version of a math problem to help Sadie, an attempt by Willie to create the world’s greatest bologna sandwich for his Duck Diner menu, a scrimmage with Lil’ Will’s struggling football team against the adults, and a visit to West Monroe from Sadie’s Dancing With The Stars partner, Mark Ballas. Then, on Survival Science, Laura Schara and Nick Mundt experience nature’s fury through amazing storm generating gear that simulates hurricanes, ice cold winds and even tornados.

Next, on Nick’s Wild Ride, Nick Hoffman hunts and explores the culture, food, music, and people of the Caprivi Strip in Namibia, famous for deadly game and big adventure. Friday Night at the Movies brings the week to a close with the 1971 action film Lawman. A lawman from Bannock arrives in Sabbath to arrest all the cattlemen whose wild celebration the year before resulted in the accidental death of an old man.

Then, on Sheep Shape, Patrick Scrogin is prepping for his Wyoming Bighorn hunt, but not before he takes a tour of the Gunwerks facility and dials in his rifle for 1,000 yards. Next, on Lock & Load Thursdays, it’s all about the latest releases on Guns & Gear – Sig Sauer rifles, the XD-E from Springfield Armory and many more. Finally, Inland Manufacturing, a major manufacturer of M1s during WW II, walks through how it has duplicated the Paratrooper model on Guns & Ammo presented by Brownells.
