New Berlin, WI - (June 22, 2012) - Focused on big game hunts, the new, original series, Antler Insanity, will demonstrate how hunting is a tradition passed down to the hosts, as they will pass along to their own. Tune into Antler Insanity exclusively on Sportsman Channel, the leader in outdoor TV for the American Sportsman on June 29 at 6:30 pm EST. The new series debuts during the premiere week of "Made in America," which kicks off 575 hours of new content across 100 different series for the networks Q3 lineup.
For the past several years, the owners, hosts, and affiliates of Antler Insanity have been traveling across North America hunting all kinds of big game. Hosted by Kevin Lancaster and Dean Davis, this new series will show viewers their passion for the outdoors. "Somewhere along the way we realized there is a diagnosis for the lifestyle we live," said host Kevin Lancaster. "Antler Insanity is about the natural born hunting instincts that a person has in their blood. We were born into a serious lifestyle of hunting. We were taught the way of the true sportsman by our fathers and grandfathers, to respect and cherish the land and what she gives us."
Hosted by Antler Insanity will take viewers on hunts chasing down high country elk in New Mexico to co-host, Davis, taking on black bear in Canada and calling in turkeys in Missouri. This new series is about the deep seated passion and love for the outdoors that the hosts have been raised with and live by. They will show viewers what they do before, during and after the hunt; the good and the bad. They are totally committed, some would call it Insane!
"This isn't about b-roll footage and fluff...this is real hunting. We want you to feel like you are there hunting with us," said co-host Dean Davis. "I am truly blessed to be able to share my passion for the outdoors with our fans, viewers and my family."
