For Sportsman Channel’s North American Whitetail, it’s the thrilling, sometimes humorous whitetail hunts, and the experienced hosts that bring the show to life. Over a span of 10 years, North American Whitetail has informed, entertained and enlightened viewers on the topic of all things whitetail. From their craziest hunts and off-the-wall footage, to Potts’ all-time favorite hunt, the series has proven staying power. “In 1983 I killed a buck that, at the time, would have scored number three in the world with a bow. North American Whitetail did a story about it, which began my association with the magazine. Then, Pat Reeve came to me and Greg Miller with the idea for a television show and I made the connection between Gordon Whittington and Pat,” remembered Potts. “We started the show in 2004, in a studio in Wisconsin. We had no idea how long it would last, we just knew we were doing something we loved to do. Ten years later, we’re happy to continue sharing our whitetail knowledge and hunting experiences. We’ll throw in a few more laughs of course, too.” “If there’s one thing that sticks out to me the most about North American Whitetail on Sportsman Channel, it’s the amount of people it takes to put this show together,” said Hogan. “We’ve had a lot of fun and we’ve learned a lot throughout the years, but none of it would have been possible without our production staff, our families and all of the outfitters we work with.” Visit the redesigned North American Whitetail TV website for more whitetail action http://www.northamericanwhitetail.com/tv/and learn more about the show on Facebook https://www.facebook.com/NAWhitetail and Twitter https://twitter.com/@NAWhitetail To find Sportsman Channel in your area click here.
