New Berlin, Wis. –( The internet isn’t just a place where funny cat videos and social media blunders reside. It’s also home to hours of wacky, entertaining and sometimes downright crazy, outdoor video footage. Sportsman Channel’s original series Camp Stewrounds up the best of the worst of the great outdoors, in a new, exciting clip show. Tune in to Sportsman Channel beginning Monday, August 18 at 7 p.m. ET for a weeklong marathon of the original series.

Hosted by Penn Jillette, Camp Stew showcases some of the craziest outdoors videos ever recorded. These videos are proof of those stories told around the fire – the tallest tales, and the fish that gets bigger each time the fisherman recounts the trip. Whether funny light moments, or serious amazing moments, they will have you going “wow!”

Clips include footage involving “Girls and Guns,” “Backyard Rambos,” “Wild Hunts and Cold Outdoors,” “Outdoor Pranks,” “Unreal Shots,” and many more scenes that will elicit a smile, offer a grimace, and even educate. Camp Stew is the third show produced in conjunction with Sportsman Channel and Pilgrim Studios. Executive Producers are Craig Piligian, Jake Shelton and Brett Boydstun.
