DEVILS TOWER, WY- -(  The Intrepid Outdoors team goes boots on the ground and continues with their commitment to safely introducing the outdoors to more young people as they attend their third Iowa Mentored Outdoor Experience hosted by the Iowa DNR’s A. Jay Winter.

At the event, they work as mentors to help introduce the outdoors to the state’s youth and teach them hunting skills that will serve them the rest of their lives.

While in Iowa, Co-Host Mike Schmid also carves out a little time to join deer hunting legend Mark Drury on a hunt that may be for one of Mike’s biggest whitetails to date. This is one episode you won’t want to miss. Check out all of the action this Saturday, Dec. 22 at 7 a.m. on the NBC Sports Network.

Also, on every episode of Intrepid Outdoors, check out our segments on:

  • Intrepid Kidz – Intrepid Outdoors takes a young person hunting or profiles young people and adults enjoying the outdoors together as an example of the fun, safe and responsibility-building environment provided through involvement in the shooting sports and the outdoor activities. This week Intrepid Outdoors joins Joshua Kickus as he tries to tag his very first deer with a shotgun during the Iowa Mentored event.
  • America—Free and Independent – This is a unique segment unlike any on outdoor television.
