Ride Shotgun for the Season Finale of Sportsman Channel’s “Amazing America with Sarah Palin” – Thursday, March 12 at 9 p.m. ET/PT

NEW BERLIN, WI (March 9, 2015) – This week’s back-to-back episodes of Amazing America with Sarah Palin bring new life to old pastimes and traditions. Field hosts Jerry Carroll and Tara Conner learn how taxidermy, bass fishing and even one couple’s wedding vows are revitalized…with a unique twist. Ride shotgun on the road to amazing for the hour-long season finale on Thursday, March 12 at 9 p.m. ET/PT exclusively on Sportsman Channel.    

aasp-finaleCarroll, no stranger to adventure, travels to Mosinee, Wis. to meet up with the owner of Custom Robotic Wildlife. The company combines the art of taxidermy and technology to create life-like mounts and decoys. The custom decoys are requested by hunters, as well as law enforcement, that use them in the fight against wildlife crime. Carroll gets the inside scoop on how the technology is built and an opportunity to see the decoys in action.

“Remote decoys are something to see…or not,” quipped Carroll. “They’re so much like the ‘real deal’ you wouldn’t know the difference.”

Carroll’s outdoor adventures continue, as he heads out on the water, where he learns what it takes to operate a cutting-edge patrol boat with a California game warden.

Viewers will then meet Modesto, Calif. native Lloyd Gomez, a man with a passion for break dancing, street style and…bass fishing. Dubbed the Bass Brigade, he and his crew put a new spin on dropping lures, as they scour the Los Angeles area for the best fishing spots around. This week, the enthusiastic anglers assist Conner in the pursuit of a trophy bass.

And the season finale concludes with a bang, as Carroll introduces the nation to Denise and Danny Salgados. Brought together by a mutual love of fishing and shooting, the happy couple is ready to renew their wedding vows – after 13 years of marriage – in an unforgettable way. Carroll awaits the arrival of the Salgados at a gun range/wedding chapel in Las Vegas, where he’s got a few surprises for the renewed newlyweds. And the day isn’t complete without a little explosive cake downrange. Viewers will have to tune in for a slice of what else is in store.

“You know me, I’m up for anything,” reflected Carroll, the one-time wedding planner and officiator. “Give me the opportunity and I’ll help make it one heck of a shotgun wedding.”

Amazing America with Sarah Palin airs exclusively on Thursdays at 9 p.m. ET/PT on Sportsman Channel.

Clearing Drills on Sportsman Channel’s “Handguns & Defensive Weapons” Featured Monday, October 20 at 9 p.m. ET/PT

Former Navy SEAL Jim Kauber joins hosts for pistol drills

NEW BERLIN, WI (October 17, 2014) – In an emergency situation, knowing how to handle a firearm is a vital skill. In this week’s Handguns & Defensive Weapons on Sportsman Channel, host Richard Nance shows viewers pistol malfunction drills to stay in the fight and challenges his counterpart James Tarr to a precision pistol competition. Former Navy SEAL Jim Kauber drops in for pistol drills focusing on the fundamentals and overcoming distractions. Sportsman Channel’s Handguns & Defensive Weapons airs Monday, October 20 at 9 p.m. ET/PT.

In a critical situation, being unprepared is not an option. Nance demonstrates a “tap, rack and assess” procedure that can remedy most pistol malfunctions. He then demonstrates how to clear the dreaded double feed. Former Navy SEAL Jim Kauber shakes things up when he challenges the hosts to hit their targets in a deliberately distracting set of pistol drills. And the episode isn’t complete without Nance and Tarr engaging in a competition to see whose shooting skills reign supreme.

“When preparing to defend yourself and family with a firearm, you have to train for the worst case scenario,” said Nance. “Even the best gun can malfunction. When it does, there’s no time for contemplation. Clearing the malfunction has to be second nature. Only by incorporating these clearance drills into your training will you truly be prepared.”
