DENVER (January 12, 2017) – Sportsman Channel viewers will have plenty of new programming to keep them entertained during the week of January 16–22. Steven Rinella seeks out the buck of his dreams in central Idaho on MeatEater; Jackie takes a friend and his daughters hunting in Montana and Oklahoma on The Jackie Bushman Show Classics; the guys of Guns & Ammo TV show off the Mark IV .22 semiauto pistol and the hosts of GunVenture go on a coyote hunt in snowy central Oregon.

Monday Night Hunts begins with Steven Rinella continuing his quest for a giant mule deer buck in central Idaho on MeatEater. Steve’s dream comes true as he finally connects with a buck that can be classified as giant, and Steve and Ryan Callaghan feast on a slow cooked roast. Then, on The Jackie Bushman Show Classics, Jeff Danker of BuckVentures and his two daughters join Jackie to talk about hunting in the great states of Montana and Oklahoma. They also discuss hunting during the late season rut in Alabama.

Next up on “Lock and Load” Thursday is Guns & Ammo TV. Ruger continues to be one of the major players when it comes to new product introductions, and it doesn’t disappoint in 2017 with its Mark IV .22 semiauto pistols, which becomes a favorite of handgun aficionados. Finally, on GunVenture, the guys are hitting the snowy trails of Oregon for a coyote hunt. In between hunts, they take a tour of the Cerakote Firearms Coatings factory and detour for some cold ones at 10 Barrel Brewing.
