December 17, 2014

Series premieres Wednesday, December 31, and anchors “Big Game Wednesday”

NEW BERLIN, WI (December 17, 2014) – In a new season of Sportsman Channel’s Bowhunter TV, Host Mike Carney, Bowhunter magazine Editor Curt Wells, and Producer Danny Farris deliver more action-packed bowhunting adventures from across North America. The hunters share unique hunting opportunities and experiences, bow-and-arrow know-how, and on-the-ground insights helping to solidify Bowhunter magazine as the sport’s journal of record and an absolute staple for hardcore hunting archers since 1969. Taking advantage of the opportunity to air mid-week on an evening dedicated solely to the pursuit of big game, Bowhunter TV now premieres at 10:30 p.m. ET on Wednesdays on Sportsman Channel.

bhtv-openAs part of the network’s “Big Game Wednesday” lineup, the series will spotlight fair-chase bowhunts for America’s most popular big game species – whitetail deer, Rocky Mountain elk, and north-country black bears, to name a few – as well as other unique pursuits. Whether it’s applying elk-hunting strategies to the West’s high-country turkeys or spot-and-stalk tactics to ambush spawning Midwestern carp, there are plenty of unique pursuits in store. In addition, every episode brings you can’t-miss advice from resident experts – via Carney’s “Tech Talk” gear segment, pro archer Randy Ulmer’s “Dead On” shooting segment, and Wells’ “Moment of Truth” hunting segment.

The first episode premieres on New Year’s Eve at 10:30 p.m. ET. Wells, Equipment Editor Tony Peterson and TV Editor Derek Mleynek visit bone-dry Southern California in search of big hogs and Columbian blacktail deer. “Every season offers unique adventure and challenge,” said Wells. “This year Mother Nature was particularly challenging, running the gamut from historic drought conditions to record-setting cold and snow, but we persevered and, as usual, our bowhunting friends made the wild weather, wild places, and wild ride all worthwhile.”
