TRCP’s Life in the Open Returns for Season Three
On VERSUS Network Friday, Oct. 5th
Alaska Caribou and Kenai River Salmon episode launches new season
of the #1-rated weekend field sports series on VERSUS
It’s open season for sportsmen as TRCP’s Life in the Open returns to VERSUS for season three starting Friday, October 5th at 7 p.m. Eastern with a caribou hunt on Alaska’s public lands followed by a fishing trip for pink and silver salmon on Alaska’s Kenai River.
The series will air this season every Friday at 7 p.m. Eastern with encore airings each Sunday morning at 10:30 am Eastern.
Inspired by the legacy of Theodore Roosevelt, TRCP’s Life in the Open explores today’s pressing fish and wildlife conservation issues while taking viewers to some of the best public and private hunting and fishing destinations accessible to hardworking American sportsmen, including some of T.R.‘s old hunting grounds and the lands and waters that inspired him.
Beautiful production by Orion Multimedia has contributed to a fantastic audience response to TRCP’s Life in the Open, which ended its second season as the highest rated weekend field sports series on the VERSUS network. Season three promises to be just as thrilling, as viewers join host Ken Barrett for big game stalking in even bigger country; knock-down, drag-out fish fighting with Oregon’s giant sturgeon; and a “run and gun” for New Mexico quail, the hot-footed missiles of the desert Southwest.
With other adventures featuring Boston Harbor stripers, Missouri whitetail, Alaska caribou and black bear, Iowa turkey, Colorado elk, Africa wildebeest and awe-inspiring scenery throughout, there is something for every hunter and angler.
“TRCP’s Life in the Open is unique among hunting and fishing shows,” says host Ken Barrett. “It highlights accessibility and conservation issues while maintaining a focus on the real trophy—T.R.‘s legacy and the lands and waters that form the basis of our hunting and fishing traditions.”
“Again and again, viewers tell us they enjoy TRCP’s Life in the Open because it portrays the true hunting and fishing experience, when the fish and game are not always monsters and the weather is sometimes uncooperative,” said TRCP President and CEO George Cooper. “While Ken occasionally takes viewers to exotic places, the majority of locations featured are public lands and waters available to the average hunter and angler. Viewers can even re-create the expeditions for themselves with the help of Ken Barrett’s Fast Facts on the TRCP Web site, www.trcp.org.”
