‘Round the Globe We Go: Stone Sheep Hunting in  Northern British Columbia; A Quest for Brown Bear in Russia;  Bowhunting in the Canadian Rockies and Seeking Buck in the States

DENVER (June 2, 2016) – Sportsman Channel highlights four cutting-edge, outdoor television series throughout the week of June 6–12.

First up, Savage Outdoors airs the first of two episodes following Mike Stroff on his hunt in northern British Columbia for Stone Sheep – considered to be one of the toughest hunts in North America. Then, Jim Shockey’s The Professionals head to Russia. Since the Iron Curtain fell, this vast country has been one of the most difficult areas in the world to successfully operate a hunt. With his muzzleloader in hand, Shockey takes on the challenge and sets out for Kamchatka Peninsula in search of huge brown bear.

On Saturday, The Edge also airs a two-part special where Steve Ecklund sets up camp in the Canadian Rockies to bowhunt Bighorn Sheep. Then, Backwoods Life Marathon airs six back-to-back episodes of the popular series. The marathon follows the crew on their bowhunting buck adventures from pursuing whitetail deer in Kansas, fulfilling tagged hunts in Illinois, to giving tips on finding the perfect outfitter.
