DEVILS TOWER, WY –( Since retiring from Major League Baseball, former pitching great Kevin Gross and eight time All-Star and three-time Golden Glove catcher Lance Parrish have dedicated a lot of spare time to their other passion—deer hunting.

On this episode of Intrepid Outdoors, the avid sportsmen travel to Intrepid Co-Host Mike Schmid’s Solitude Ranch in Wyoming for some action-packed hunts for big whitetail bucks.

First, Schmid serves as Gross’ personal guide as they look to enjoy a successful hunt over a water hole on the first morning of the hunt. Meanwhile, Parrish has to put in extra innings in his quest to score big on a huge Wyoming whitetail. Watch to find out if a large food plot of planted tubers turns into Parrish’s field of dreams. World-renowned big buck hunter Mark Drury also joins the group in camp to share in the fun. Find out how each hunt plays out this Saturday, Nov. 24 at 7 a.m. on the NBC Sports Network.
