Three days and four different times to catch the best bird hunting and conservation show on the air!
Saint Paul, Minn. – August 11, 2009 – The best outdoor stories are often found in unexpected places. From a wild west pheasant opener, to pheasant habitat helping trout, and a one-of-a-kind craftsman, this week's episode of Pheasants Forever Television seeks out those hidden outdoor treasures! The episode airs on Outdoor Channel this Thursday at 1AM CDT / 2AM EDT, Friday at 7:30AM CDT / 8:30AM EDT and on Saturday at 2AM CDT / 3AM EDT and again at 3:30PM CDT / 4:30PM EDT.
First, Pheasants Forever Television and The Man Afield, Bill Sherck, visit Winneshiek County and the sportsman's paradise that is northeast Iowa. The Conservation Reserve Program has helped restore pheasant populations, and also provided a boost to area streams.
Next, Pheasants Forever Television travels to Ohio and the workshop of leather artist James Acord. Custom, handcrafted art for the fly fisherman, upland hunter and waterfowler has given Acord a reputation as one of the most unique artists around.
Finally, Pheasants Forever Television is there for the pheasant opener with South Dakota's Black Hills Chapter of Pheasants Forever. South Dakota is the nation's number one pheasant destination, but the Black Hills lie on the western edge of the state's pheasant range, which makes creating prime ringneck habitat much more difficult. Chapter members Karl Castor, Terry Hulm and others made it their mission to create habitat despite the arid plains...now see the results!
Each episode of Pheasants Forever Television's also features informative tips, including Shotgun Savvy with shooting pro Ed Prechel, Habitat Habit brought to you by Carlson's Choke Tubes and Gun Dog Savvy sponsored by Purina.
