Featured Guests: Eva Shockey-Brent, Alli Armstrong, Adriana Armstrong, Greg Randolph

Hunter participation plays a vital role in funding for wildlife management, conservation efforts and keeping alive this time-honored lifestyle and tradition. However, new hunters don’t make it to the woods and fields without the guidance and encouragement of a mentor. Join The Revolution this week as we talk about recruiting new hunters, hunter education and so much more with our panel of pros. Joining us will be Eva Shockey, of Jim Shockey’s Hunting Adventures on Outdoor Channel, as well as Alli and Adriana Armstrong, hosts of Grace, Camo & Lace on Sportsman Channel. Finally, Greg Randolph from DECKED will round out our panel with crafty tips for in-vehicle truck storage solutions. The Revolution is presented by Outdoor Channel, Sportsman Channel, World Fishing Network and MyOutdoorTV.

Eva Shockey has used her platform to bring awareness to and be an outspoken advocate for the hunting and outdoor lifestyle. Eva hardly needs an introduction; she is one of the most recognizable faces of the outdoor industry and brings the world along on her adventures, chronicling them through social media or on episodes of Jim Shockey’s Hunting Adventures on Outdoor Channel. She’s also the author of TAKING AIM: Daring to Be Different, Happier and Healthier in the Great Outdoors.

Tune in to The Revolution this week as Eva offers her thoughts on the future generation of outdoorsmen and women. Eva tells Jim and Trav that she embraces being a role model and especially to little girls, making a point to stop and spend time with as many as she can, hoping to have a positive impact on their desire to get outdoors. She also acknowledges the role that moms play in bringing kids into the hunting fold. Eva says that if moms respect and appreciate hunting for the valuable source of food it brings to the table, they are more likely to encourage their kids in hunting pursuits. Tune in for this extended two-part interview as Eva also discusses conservation, empowering others and the responsibility she feels to raise her daughter with a passion for the outdoors so future generations have the same outdoor opportunities that she has had.

Young blood is exactly what the outdoor industry needs in order to continue to foster new generations of outdoorsmen and women. Grace, Camo & Lace on Sportsman Channel follows two of these up and coming hunters on their adventures across North America. Adriana and Alli Armstrong are accomplished archers and hunters and they bring a youthful energy and passion for hunting and the outdoors to each episode. This week they join The Revolution and talk about their introduction to hunting at a very early age. Fast forward a few years and now they are using their platform and passion for the outdoors to encourage others to get involved. They’ll discuss the decline in the number of hunting licenses sold and how they are using their show to reach out to and expose more people to the outdoors.

It's the classic hunter's lament; an endless array of gear, gadgets and clothing and no way to conveniently store and haul it in our trucks without sacrificing passenger room and comfort. Well, thanks to DECKED, that plight ceases to exist. Joining The Revolution this week is Greg Randolph, Vice President of Marketing for DECKED Truck and Van Storage Systems, and he'll detail how their revolutionary, ergonomic, organizing weatherproof toolbox that has a 2000 pounds payload, came to be. DECKED truck bed storage drawers enable you to work, hunt and play more efficiently, while keeping your hard-earned essentials dry and out of plain sight. Each versatile pullout drawer has a 200 pounds payload carrying capacity which enables you to load a combined total of 400 pounds, all the while maintaining the use of your entire truck bed. Furthermore, Greg will discuss their highly engineered D-Boxes that increase the functionality of the DECKED pullout drawers. D-Boxes give you the option of maximizing your adventure by storing sensitive, breakables or valuables in an easy to carry weathertight lockable gear box that can be loaded, hauled and carried to your campsite, blind or final destination, with absolute ease.
