USA – -( Six hunters, three days and numerous whitetails spotted on the Harteis stomping grounds in Pennsylvania as Freddy Harteis heads home to see who can score “bragging rights” for the year on this week’s Hollywood Hunter, exclusively on Sportsman Channel.

With uncles, cousins, in-laws and more, Harteis gets them all on a good buck, but who will come home with the nicest of them all?

Tune in to Hollywood Hunter on Sportsman Channel Saturday, August 2 at 10 a.m. ET.

Opening day in Pennsylvania isn’t a small deal, it is a big deal; with one million tags sold every year, hunters in this area treat opening day as a non-negotiable day in the woods, and yes, competition is a part of it. “There is an ongoing debate in the hunting community if hunting is a competition – I believe it is – it’s a competition between you and the animal,” said Harteis. “To be able to outsmart them as they are equipped with all the right tools to avoid predators of all shapes and sizes is a big deal. But we are all out here to enjoy ourselves and have a good experience.”

With near misses and great hits, the hunters end the three days with multiple deer down – but viewers will have to tune in to see who takes home the nicest beauty of them all.

Don’t think this is another show about an urban hunter trading a suit for camouflage. Harteis grew up hunting in Pennsylvania and was always along for the ride while his father harvested North America’s most-desired big game trophies. Now, Harteis is able to showcase his family’s ranch with world-class elk and mule deer episodes.  Los Angeles has never seen a better advocate for this industry as he rallies new blood to learn about the hunt.
