Texas Hunting on Sportsman Channel’s “Sheep Shape” and Bass Beatdowns on

DENVER (September 28, 2017) – The week of October 2–8 brings outdoorsmen and women fall programming at its finest on Outdoor Channel, Sportsman Channel and World Fishing Network.

Dropped: Expedition South Pacific
“Dropped” on Outdoor Channel

Three episodes of Duck Dynasty begin the week on Outdoor Channel when Duck Commander sponsors a NASCAR race, guests from all over the world celebrate the wedding of John Luke Robertson and his fiancé Mary Kate, and Jep buys a drone to capture a “bird’s eye” view of a duck blind in order to settle a bet. Then, the adrenaline has worn off and the jet lag has set in for brothers Chris and Casey Keefer on Dropped: Expedition South Pacific. This week, their safety is threatened when they try to navigate rough waterways, frigid temperatures and unpredictable whitewater rapids.

Next, on Nick’s Wild Ride, Nick Hoffman travels to the 50th state to hunt high country sheep and explore the Hawaiian culture. He experiences a world-famous Kona Coffee plantation and gets lessons in traditional Hawaiian BBQ after taking a wild pig. Friday Night at the Movies ends the week with the 1961 film The Comancheros – Texas Ranger Jake Cutter (John Wayne) arrests gambler Paul Regret (Stuart Whitman), but soon finds himself teamed with his prisoner in efforts to defeat thieves known as Comancheros.
