A Suspenseful Vancouver Bear Hunt in “The Professionals” and Season Finale of “Just Junie”

 New Episodes Airing May 2–8

 DENVER (April 28, 2016) – Suspenseful, gripping and vigorous outdoor lifestyle television highlights Sportsman Channel this week with all new episodes on May 2–8.

First up, Jim Shockey’s outfitting territory on Vancouver Island is the focus in this week’s episode of Jim Shockey’s The Professionals. Lately, the terrain has been hit with some of the worst weather its received in more than a decade, making it very difficult for the hunting guides to find bears for their clients. In fact, Jim is in danger of failing to find a bear for a client for the first time in 20 years.

Then, Friday night airs Easton Bowhunting TV where Fred Eichler gets up-close and personal with a bull, armed with only a head-mounted camera and a recurve bow. Next, in the season finale of Just Junie, the persuasive huntress convinces her long-time friend, Reza, to take a week off work for a big game hunt in Texas. Sunday evening, The Habit follows Chuck and Jon as they chase ducks across the country; the guys are also invited to christen the new Bass Pro shop in Memphis, Tennessee.
