DEVILS TOWER, WY - For every successful outdoor show, there are a team of people who never make it in front of the camera, yet are every bit as important as the show's hosts and on-screen guests. This week, some of Intrepid's "behind-the-scenes" all-stars get their chance in the spotlight, which more importantly, means they get some time behind a gun or bow.
First, former lead editor of Intrepid Erika Ivanoff trades a computer for a rifle and joins her then fiancé, now husband, Phil Quick, for a thrilling northwest Wyoming hunt for antelope and whitetails. Additional hunting action is captured on the screen as Frank Amos sneaks away from his usual hectic duties as the manager of Solitude Ranch to arrow a cull buck. Amos spends most of his time putting other hunters on to nice deer, so this quick hunt is a special time for him and will be for those who join him on Intrepid Outdoors.
Also, on every episode of Intrepid Outdoors, check out our segments on:
• Intrepid Kidz -This week's Intrepid Kidz hunt features young Jordyn Woosley, who contacted Solitude Ranch owner and Intrepid Outdoors co-host Mike Schmid through the Intrepid website and requested a chance to hunt the ranch for her first whitetail. Schmid grants the wish and what was to be a whitetail hunt, quickly turns to a pursuit of a different type of deer after the California hunter sees some of the ranches great muley's and decides that she wants to try for her first mule deer buck instead.
• America-Free and Independent - This is a unique segment unlike any on outdoor television. America-Free and Independent offers viewers an opportunity to see how energy exploration and extraction can coexist among wildlife and the environment through proper management, all while providing excellent outdoor opportunities and reducing America's dependence on other nations for our vital energy supply.
