Benny = 0, Bear = 1 on “Gun It with Benny Spies” Presented by Leupold

Watertown, So. Dak. (Ammoland.Com) – On this week’s Gun It with Benny Spies presented by Leupold, Benny heads back to Montana for another chance at the one animal that has eluded him: the black bear. Tune in to see this flatlander work Montana’s mountains to chase bear on Gun It with Benny Spies presented by Leupold on Thursday, November 19 at 9 p.m. ET exclusively on Sportsman Channel.

For a sneak peak of what’s in store for Benny, the Toaster and more, watch here:

“The hardest part of getting out of bed and working out to get in shape for this bear hunt was, in fact, getting out of bed and working out,” said Spies. “So this might be a little bit of a struggle for me. Pretty sure I am good for 10-20 miles each day. I had my Jack Links jerky, my Dakota Style Chips and my hot chocolate for breakfast, I’m good to go.”

No matter how many carbs Spies downs, he still has to the find the bear – so he and his friend, Travis, climb and glass – and climb and glass more. At one point during the four-day hunt, Travis spots a bear for split second on top of a mountain – of course the guys have to go after it. Will they reach the bear in time before sundown? Or will Spies go home empty-handed once again?
