New Berlin, Wis. –( In honor of wounded military veterans, Mike Hanback, host of Sportsman Channel’s Big Deer TV, joins two war heroes on a quest for whitetail deer in his home state of Virginia. Hanback connects with the men through The Outdoor Heritage Fund and its founder Jack Hazel.

The organization is dedicated to providing healing opportunities to veterans, troops and their families through hunting, fishing and other outdoor activities. Join the whitetail action and celebrate the bravery of those who serve on Big Deer TV exclusively on Sportsman Channel on Wednesday, October 29 at 10 p.m. ET/PT.

Calvin Todd and Ken Katter, military veterans, are known for their courage and bravery on the battlefield. In this week’s episode of Big Deer TV, Hanback is thrilled to give back to the men who spent part of their lives protecting the freedom of every American. Hanback focuses on celebrating their acts of valor and plans for an exciting and entertaining whitetail deer hunt that will – hopefully – end successfully.

“What I’m most proud of, as hunters, is we are a patriotic group. We’re red, white and blue,” said Hanback. “If you ever get the opportunity to go with one of these veterans, one of these heroes and hear their stories and spend a couple of days outside in the woods where we are just drawn to nature and hunting like this, it’s a very special time in your life. It goes to your heart and it goes to your soul. It’s a win-win for everybody.”

Big Deer TV airs exclusively on Sportsman Channel, Wednesdays at 10 p.m. ET/PT.
