DENVER (June 29, 2016) The Outfitters Built by Ford F-Series, an adventure outdoor series exclusively on Sportsman Channel, returns for its fourth season beginning Sunday, July 3 at
11 a.m. ET
.

The Outfitters Built by Ford F-Series includes outdoor experts, Captain Conway Bowman and Fred Eichler, as they take viewers into the lives of professional guides, their gear, crew, and how they make their living under grueling conditions. From the swamps of Florida to the coastal mountains of California, The Outfitters provide an inside look at the wild, often dangerous, and always thrilling lives of the toughest guides, captains and outfitters.

Sportsman Channel’s world-renowned outdoor experts Captain Conway Bowman and bowhunting authority Fred Eichler return for Season 4 to host the 13-episode, half-hour series. This season, the guides each take on multiple challenges – from Bowman flexing an archery bow and Eichler trying his hand with a fly rod in the first episode, to Bowman trying for a record mako shark off the coast of California and Eichler tracking the revered Thule elk through the coastal California mountains.

“Conway and I definitely put our F-Series trucks through it all in this season as we travel from Florida to California and everywhere in between searching out the best guides in the business,” said Eichler. “Fans are going to really enjoy our season debut and seeing me with a fly rod in my hand is not only out of place, but proves that whole ‘old dog, new trick’ line.”

The Outfitters Built by Ford F-Series is an exclusive partnership between Ford and Outdoor Sportsman Group – Integrated Media.

“As America’s truck leader, Ford is proud to support The Outfitters and all of the outdoor enthusiasts who rely on our F-Series trucks,” said Doug Scott, Ford truck group marketing manager. “The new
F-150 is the toughest, smartest and most capable F-150 ever, ready for adventures from coast to coast and everywhere in between.”

The partnership includes a number of complementary elements, including TheFordOutfitters.com, a comprehensive website with relevant, entertaining content, a robust social presence, and the “Truckin’ to Texas” sweepstakes<, offering outdoor enthusiasts a chance to win a 2017 Ford Super Duty truck and an all-expense paid trip for two to the legendary King Ranch in Texas.

“This season is all about Fred and me pushing ourselves – and we discovered the best guides in each category for that job. Since we are guides, too, we know what a tough job they have and we are lucky to highlight these adventures in some of the most remote areas of North America,” exclaimed Bowman.
