New Berlin, Wis. –-(Ammoland.com)- Sportsman Channel, the leader in outdoor TV for the American Sportsman, announced today Larry Weishuhn, known as “Mr. Whitetail,” is bringing a new series, A Hunter’s Life, to Sportsman Channel starting this summer.
The show will chronicle Weishuhn’s life as a hunter, from a youngster hunting squirrels to the present day icon he’s become. Produced by Magnum Global Media, A Hunter’s Life will air during Sportsman Channel’s “Big Game Wednesdays” at 10:00 pm ET starting this summer.
“To have an icon like Weishuhn on our network with a brand new series says multitudes about where Sportsman Channel is headed in 2011,” said Gavin Harvey, Sportsman Channel CEO.
“We seek out the best of the best and are building our primetime weeknight blocks with non-stop hardcore hunting action. This announcement is on the heels of many others coming on board Sportsman this summer and we are proud of the network’s growth and success.”
This premiere series will showcase Weishuhn’s life as a biologist, conservationist and hunter and will dive into the next chapter in his life. Beyond hunting just whitetail, Weishuhn will take on other big game species as well, such as moose, bear and elk. The show’s creators promise an upbeat show with more action on the ground and less chatting to the screen.
The show will also hold a few surprises for viewers.
“We’ll do things on this show that have never been done before on outdoor television. Some of it will shock, some will be interesting and we aren’t ‘flagging’ it to our viewers. You’ll simply just have to watch the show,” said host and creator Larry Weishuhn.
Additionally, Weishuhn is hosting a second show premiering on the network in January, 2012 titled Outfitters Rating TV with Larry Weishuhn. That show will also air during Sportsman Channel’s “Big Game Wednesdays” at 10:00 pm ET. The show’s creators say even more surprises are up their sleeves for this show and they are thrilled to have Weishuhn on the network for 52 weeks with these two programs. More on Outfitters Rating TV will come later this year.
“I am excited to be on Sportsman Channel and chose the network because we see it as the future of our industry. Plus, we like the other programs they are bringing on board. They are making a strong case as the place to be on TV,” said Weishuhn.
Before Weishuhn was a well-known author and TV personality, he worked as a wildlife biologist for the Texas Parks & Wildlife Department for several years. Then he experienced life working for several ranches in Texas and Colorado while pursuing a writing career. According to Weishuhn, the moniker, “Mr. Whitetail,” was created by well-known outdoor writer, J. Wayne Fears, who was Weishuhn’s writing mentor.

He’s also a published book author with, “Pear Flat Philosophies,” published by Safari Press, as well as “Trailing the Hunter’s Moon,” published by Stoeger Publications.
