This season, Spies is putting a mark on the demographic he connects with in outdoor TV, which is why he recently started a new branding campaign called “Everyoutdoorsman.” It’s the group he’s proudly represented for the last six years: the average outdoorsman, weekend warriors, the part-time hunters, the important majority that most outdoor shows fail to engage. Season six continues to take viewers from his home in Watertown, South Dakota to adventures across the country for the most authentic hunting, fishing and rural American adventures – all in the “luxurious” comforts of the Toaster, a 1973 Winnebago.

“To me, outdoor TV is about telling an honest, authentic story. It’s always about uncovering fun, amazing places with remarkable people who create incredible adventures.   It’s about exploring everything the outdoors has to offer. The story is already there – you just have to find it,” commented Spies. “That’s what sets this season apart from the past – we dug in deep for those exciting stories and put a spotlight on them. This is what outdoor TV should attain to – it doesn’t have to be Boone & Crockett deer 24/7, it’s about uncovering compelling outdoor adventures and the characters that make up small town America? And then race against them with your Winnebago!?”
