Sportsman Channel’s “Apex Predator” Hides in Plain Sight in Season Premiere – Thursday, April 9 at 8 p.m. ET/PT

April 7, 2015

NEW BERLIN, WI (April 7, 2015) – Cold-blooded alligators have highly attuned hearing, night vision and an uncanny ability to blend in with their surroundings. These are attributes Remi Warren, host of Sportsman Channel’s original series Apex Predator, will attempt to emulate. Warren meets with experts and learns what it takes to become a “lie and wait” predator – blending in with the environment, silently pinpointing prey and striking without warning – on a hunt for wild pig.

Apex Predator premieres on Thursday, April 9 at 8 p.m. ET/PT on Sportsman Channel.

There is no better way to understand how an alligator hunts then to become one with its environment. In order to do this right, Warren meets with gator biologists and a human performance specialist to discover what it means to remain “hidden in plain sight” and to practice conserving energy. Though Warren can’t compete with an alligator’s 2,000 pounds of bite force, he begins a hunt for wild pig from the depths of a Central Florida swamp – alligator style.

apexpred“By being at eye level to the water and looking at the world through the lens of the alligator, it’s really pushed my own personal boundaries on what it means to be close and to be patient and to be stealthy,” said Warren. “As a hunter, that’s what I strive for and that’s what I take away from this lesson. I learned what it means to have to be patient. If I took that into every avenue of hunting it would overall make me a better hunter.”
