Watch for a sneak peak of what’s in store:

“It’s not easy naming something so iconic like coming up with the Toaster and Secret Weapon – it has to be perfect,” said Spies. “So I did what most people would do – I reached out to the public.”

With suggestions like “Camo King,” “Sweet Dreams” and “Fish Stick,” Spies is taking all the ideas in and filing them away.

But first, Spies takes the boat out for its inaugural spin beaver hunting on the Missouri River in South Dakota, which is harder to do than it sounds. And later, Spies and his two friends try a little pike fishing where good friend Willy loses his fishing pole, pukes on the beach and eventually lands…well fans will have to tune in to find out.

And finally, stay for the end of the show where the big name for the fishing boat is revealed on Gun It with Benny Spies presented by Leupold.

you have brought up a very superb points, appreciate it for the post.


Benny, Just wanted to drop a line to say, I enjoy your show. You bring a whole new approach to outdoor TV shows, it’s very refreshing to us common down to earth sportsman, who don’t have the resources ($$$$$$), to go to the fancy places to fish or hunts. In my 63 years, I’ve seen my share of shows, but find yours more entertaining. Here’s a big “Hello”, from Illinois. Keep up the good work.
