Just Junie (Sunday at Noon ET): After filling her freezer with enough meat for a year from a hunt on Rancho El Puerto in Old Mexico, Junie James was coined, “Señorita Sangre,” which means “Ms. Blood.” She approaches life with a ‘do-it-yourself’ attitude, putting food on her family’s table by means of hunting and cooking the meat all on her own. Viewers will not want to miss this two-part special airing February 14 and February 21 to understand how this huntress got her nickname. For a look ahead at the two-part episode, click here: Promo
