The Rut is On During This Week’s HARDCORE Pursuit

Airing Friday at 9:30 p.m. ET on Sportsman Channel

DENVER (November 24, 2021) – This week on Sportman Channel’s HARDCORE Pursuit (Friday, November 26 at 9:30 p.m. ET), host Mike Pelletier and crew are in full rut mode as they chase whitetails across the upper Midwest.

HARDCORE Pursuit’s mission is to bring exciting big game hunts into the living rooms of their passionate viewers every week. Most of their hunts are with archery equipment and include destinations all over the upper Midwest and into Canada. Pelletier and the hearty gang of northern hunters make up the crew as they chase whitetails, mule deer, elk, moose, bear, turkey and whatever else proves to be an exciting challenge.

Born and raised running the northwoods of the UP of Michigan, the hunting and fishing lifestyle has been a way of life for Mike since he was a child. At the age of 17, he began filming his first hunts and learning all he could about outdoor videography. After working for corporate America for 25 years, Pelletier decided to retire at the age of 42 and go full time in the outdoor television business, shifting his focus into making HARDCORE Pursuit one of the highest-quality and down-to-earth outdoor lifestyle shows on television.

Watch HARDCORE Pursuit on Sportsman Channel on Fridays at 9:30 p.m. ET.
