Epic Hunts Set The Maverick Apart

Sportsman Channel Show Premieres Sunday, June 27, 2021 at 8 p.m. ET

DENVER (May 4, 2021) - Each week a new hunter with a unique backstory takes aim at various prey in an amazing location that has been managed and cultivated to produce trophy-size game on
Sportsman Channel’s The Maverick premiering Sunday, June 27 at 8 p.m. ET.

The host of The Maverick is no stranger to Sportsman Channel. Freddy Harteis, a professional hunter and producer, has hosted a hunting-focused series for 12 consecutive seasons, where he initially introduced some of his “Tinseltown” connections to the rugged outdoor hunting world he fell in love with as a child. Along the way, Harteis also highlighted how this thrilling sport gives back to wildlife conservation efforts.

The Maverick series evolves a step further to shine the spotlight on other adventure-loving Mavericks from industries and home-grown businesses across the country who have forged their own paths in life and are passionate about hunting. This season, an ammunition manufacturer and entrepreneur is a featured “Maverick” who loves bringing all three generations of his family to the Harteis ranch for an opportunity to experience the stopping power of his ammo firsthand. In another episode, an expert guide with 25 years of experience is featured for the wisdom and success he brings to the hunt. Later in the season, Harteis, as the original “Maverick,” takes some incredible shots, effectively putting the spot and stock on a Coues deer at 1,600 yards while in Arizona.

Season 3 also will feature the harvest of “KingPin,” the biggest bull Harteis has ever seen at the ranch and the full embodiment of the ever-expanding property that serves as an ideal habitat for an incredible array of species such as turkeys, mountain lions, antelope, deer, elk and bear.

“By addressing 500-acre sections of the property at a time, we are carefully curating an optimal environment for the many species that inhabit this beautiful region of Southern Colorado,” land improvement manager for the ranch David Moore explained.

This investment along with careful herd management translates to having trophy-size animals nearly every season, with constant growth coming behind to replenish the harvest which guarantees the Harteis Ranch remains an ideal destination for decades to come.

Currently, Freddy Harteis is the managing owner of the more than 21,000-acre Harteis Ranch including the surrounding leased properties in Weston, CO and lives just south of Nashville, TN with his wife, Linsey and their two children, Emmie and Huck.

The Maverick airs on Sportsman Channel on Sundays at 8 p.m. and 11:00 p.m. ET. Find Sportsman Channel in your area by visiting https://www.thesportsmanchannel.com/
