Celebrating 40 Years of Business on “Duck Dynasty”; Exploring the West on  “Big Country Fridays” and the Next Round of Competition on “Major League Fishing”

 DENVER (December 29, 2016) Outdoor Channel rings in the new year with exciting adventures for viewers during the week of January 2–8. Willie and the Robertson crew celebrate the 40th anniversary of Duck Commander on Duck Dynasty; Ivan Carter investigates the cause of a string of murdered lions on Carter’s W.A.R.; classic western film, The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly, ends Big Country Fridays and Major League Fishing closes out the week with a fierce competition in Osage Beach, Missouri.

Three episodes of Duck Dynasty begin this week on Outdoor Channel. First, for Willie’s birthday, Jase organizes a family trip to Lake D’Arbonne, Louisiana, a favorite hangout of the brothers in their youth. Then, it’s the 40-year anniversary of Duck Commander, and this celebration is a Louisiana bayou-style shindig. Finally, the Duck Commander team is invited to unveil a wing of the local Bass Pro shop that will feature their products.

Big Country Fridays opens with Carter’s W.A.R. investigating a string of murdered lions. And Ivan gets to the very heart of an ancient conflict between humans and lions. The outcome will test Ivan’s own core values about cultural perspective and conservation. Next up is The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly on Friday Night at the Movies. A bounty hunting scam joins two men in an uneasy alliance against a third party in a race to find a fortune of gold buried in a remote cemetery.

Saturday, on Major League Fishing, six anglers compete in Osage Beach, Missouri and only one will advance into the 2017 Summit Cup.
