DENVER (September 21, 2017) Outdoor Channel, Sportsman Channel and World Fishing Network viewers will experience jaw dropping destinations and reel-gripping adventures during the week of September 25–October 1.

Dropped: Expedition South Pacific
“Dropped: Expedition South Pacific” of Outdoor Channel

Duck Dynasty leads Monday evening on Outdoor Channel when Kay fulfills her lifelong dream of owning a petting zoo, Uncle Si is honored by the veteran’s association and given his own exhibit at a local military museum, Jase and the guys discover they have a knack for removing pests from properties, and Uncle Si creates a bucket list and asks the guys to help him fulfill his dreams after a brush with death. Then, on the season premiere of Dropped: Expedition South Pacific, brothers Chris and Casey Keefer are dropped in the wilderness of New Zealand with virtually nothing. They must quickly adapt to their new environment or face life-threatening consequences.

Next, Nick Hoffman takes his very first trip to Alaska to hunt backcountry caribou on Nick’s Wild Ride. He digs into the history and soul of the Alaskan outdoorsmen/women and Native people, but not before he experiences a hidden gourmet food spot and shops for artifacts in Anchorage. Friday Night at the Movies brings the week to a close with Geronimo: An American Legend – the story of the Apache Chief and his armed resistance to the U.S. Government’s subjugation of his people.
