Sportsman Channel’s “Apex Predator” Soars on Thursday, May 7 at 8 p.m. ET/PTMay 4, 2015
NEW BERLIN, WI (May 4, 2015) – With eyesight estimated to be eight times greater than a human’s, and a wingspan up to seven and a half feet wide, it is no wonder Remi Warren, host of Sportsman Channel’s original series Apex Predator, is fascinated by the Golden Eagle’s attributes and ability to hunt. This week’s episode takes Warren inside the mind of the massive bird in an attempt to mimic its predatory style using modern optics in pursuit of the elusive Mexican Coues deer. Apex Predator airs Thursday, May 7 at 8 p.m. ET/PT exclusively on Sportsman Channel.
Humans have long been fascinated by a bird’s ability to fly, and the coveted “bird’s eye view” it provides. It is an advantage birds like the Golden Eagle use on their quest to survive – to discover and devour prey. Warren hopes to gain that advantage, but before heading out into the mountains of Mexico, he must learn what it takes to obtain vision so powerful, medium sized prey become visible from up to two miles away. Warren has the opportunity to use modern optics to assist in his hunt, but he lacks the luxury of flight and the ability to dive down to the ground at speeds of up to 150 miles per hour. Warren journeys to higher ground, but when a Coues deer appears, will the apex predator reach his prey in time?
“Even as a hunter who uses optics and hunts like this a lot – I learned something new,” admitted Warren. “I got up high in the mountains, I glassed, I tried to keep as true to the way the eagle would spot things as I could. I’m thankful that I learned this lesson and I feel pretty darn excited about everything I got to experience.
