Featured Guests: Tom McMillan, Joe Mantegna, Jeremy Mallette

Don’t give in to the October Lull deer hunters, because now is the time to be persistent in your pursuit of an October buck. Tune in to The Revolution with Jim and Trav this week as Tom McMillan from MCMILLAN on Sportsman Channel joins us to dish fall deer hunting tips, plus he'll drop the 411 about #DeerWeek on Outdoor Channel and Sportsman Channel. Then, Jeremy Mallette, Director of Social Media for Silencer Shop, will catch us up to date on how their Form 4 Barcode System that prints a unique barcode on each Form 4, is advancing. This revolutionary Barcode System was designed and built by Silencer Shop and given to the ATF for one purpose, to drastically cut the traditional six-month wait period that's commonly associated with purchasing a silencer, and it's working brilliantly. Finally, Joe Mantegna, host of Gun Stories presented by Midway USA on Outdoor Channel, wraps things up with an in-depth look in to the 7th season of this award-winning show. Joe will stick around for an exclusive two-part interview that takes a retrospective look at his life as an actor, firearms enthusiast and how his deep family ties, keep him grounded. The Revolution and this week's discussion of Guns & Deer is presented by Outdoor Channel, Sportsman Channel, World Fishing Network, MyOutdoorTV and #DeerWeek.

Tom McMillan is the host of MCMILLAN on Sportsman Channel and he joins The Revolution this week with loads of tips for hunters trying to fill their tags. Tom wears many hats in any given day – rancher, farmer, family man – but as a guide and outfitter he is responsible for creating opportunities for other hunters to succeed in bagging bucks. Tune in as Tom talks about hunting the rut and while there may be increased deer activity, why it may not always be the most ideal time to shoot deer. He’ll also discuss hunting over scrapes and rubs and things to keep in mind if you intend to hunt over mock scrapes. Tom will then take on moon phases and talk about his observations of hunting during the full moon and the time he has found to be most productive afield, during this cycle. What is the single most important factor that Tom considers in order to be successful on any hunt? Find out by listening this week to The Revolution with Jim and Trav. Finally, celebrate the sport and tradition of deer hunting by tuning in to #DeerWeek on Outdoor Channel and Sportsman Channel. Kicking off on Sunday, October 15 at 7 p.m. ET, this deer hunting mini marathon provides seven nights of antlered hunting action for outdoor enthusiasts hosted by Tom McMillan on Sportsman Channel and Michael Waddell on Outdoor Channel. Find out more about #DeerWeek from the host himself, Tom McMillan!

Joe Mantegna, actor and gun enthusiast, is the host of Gun Stories presented by Midway USA on Outdoor Channel. Now in its 7th season, Gun Stories gives viewers an in-depth look at the history of firearms, as well as the operation and performance of each weapon they feature. Host, Joe Mantegna, joins The Revolution to talk about the new season airing now on Outdoor Channel and tells Jim and Trav that the premiere episode is especially important to him. The season kicks off with Joe shooting his grandfather’s Model 12 Browning pump shotgun manufactured in 1912, as he visits his grandfather’s farm in Oklahoma – it’s the first time that the shotgun had been fired on that same farm since 1928. Joe tells Jim and Trav about his unlikely introduction to firearms where a bike ride ultimately spurred his passion for shooting sports. There’s much more in this special two-part interview where Joe will talk about the 2nd Amendment, a trip to Italy to tour the Benelli factory, Gun Stories and much more!

Shooting with a suppressor has a host of benefits – most notably reduced sound and recoil. Hunters and shooters across the country understand the advantages of shooting with a suppressor, but in many cases, are put off by the amount of time it takes to purchase and wait for approval from the ATF. Silencer Shop has simplified and sped up this long wait time with their Form 4 Barcode System. Tune in to The Revolution as Jeremy Mallette, with Silencer Shop, explains how the Barcode System works and as a result, how wait times at the ATF are expected to be under 3 months by the end of this year. Jeremy will talk about the benefits of using this Barcode System and why you should be encouraging your dealer to, if they aren’t already. On a more serious note, Jeremy will discuss the recent tragedy in Las Vegas and explain why those who are attacking suppressors, as well as hunters, have misplaced their ire. All this, and more, so tune in!
