Pigs Just Might Start Flying with a Marathon of “Pigman: The Series”;  “MeatEater” Hunts the Bluegrass State

DENVER (August 4, 2016) – Sportsman Channel has pig on the brain during the week of August 8–14 with a marathon of Pigman: The Series on Saturday (August 13) and a new episode airing on Sunday (August 14).

Before the network starts frying the bacon, Thursday night (August 11) features Steven Rinella on MeatEater hunting in Kentucky with small-game mastermind, Kevin Murphy and his army of hunting dogs.

Saturday evening viewers can’t get enough of Pigman: The Series with six episodes in a row. First, Pigman heads to Maine with a moose tag – a once in a lifetime chance. His opportunity to procure a moose comes when he least expects it. Next, Pigman gets a chance at the elusive and nocturnal African Bush Pig in broad daylight. Then, the daytime bush pig hunt left Pigman wanting more, so he heads out for a second time. Next, Dap shuffles his way through Mexico procuring javalina while Pigman takes down a huge hog with the Savage. Then, Pigman, Dap, and a fan, Derrick, go deer hunting and Derrick heads home with a buck to feed the whole family. Finally, after previously striking out, Pigman heads off-shore in Louisiana to try again at bagging a shark with a bow.

Sunday evening, on a new episode of Pigman: The Series, Dap tags along on a business trip to South Padre Island, Texas – which means he’s once again after the elusive Nilgai.

Highlights for August 8–14:

  • MeatEater (Thursdays at 8 p.m. ET)
  • Pigman: The Series Marathon (Saturday, August 13 from 5 p.m. to 8 p.m. ET)
  • Pigman: The Series (Sundays at 8:30 p.m. ET)
