DENVER (May 25, 2017) – A taste for adventure and competition run high during the week of May 29–June 4 as the best amateur shooters step up to the mark on Outdoor Channel's American Marksman, Sportsman Channel viewers travel to Paraguay and Mexico for vastly different, yet equally exhilarating reasons, and once-in-a-lifetime fishing escapades go down on World Fishing Network.
Outdoor Channel’s original series, Hollywood Weapons, marathons into Monday night featuring eight episodes, beginning with host Terry Schappert as he puts several weapons to the test in an underwater experiment assessing a scene from Criminal Minds. Dual episodes of American Marksman follow, boasting Regionals and Finals of the shooting competition that attracts amateur shooters from across the country vying for a chance to qualify for the National Championship at CMP Talladega Marksmanship Park in Alabama. Then, on Carter’s W.A.R., Ivan discovers the blood, sweat, and tears that go into saving endangered rhinos as he embarks on an adventure to save the next newly-orphaned rhino. Friday Night at the Movies ends the week with the film Duck, You Sucker, where an I.R.A. explosives expert on-the-run in Mexico meets an amoral bandit; together they are drawn into the Mexican Revolution.
