DENVER (June 2, 2017) – As summer temperatures begin to roll in, the travel bug hits the week of June 5–11, taking viewers around the world beginning with a trip to Scotland on Outdoor Channel's Duck Dynasty, the old Mexican desert on Sportsman Channel's Predator Pursuit and the pristine inshore and offshore waters of Florida on World Fishing Network.
Outdoor Channel’s favorite Duckmen lead Monday night with three ducks in a row on Duck Dynasty, starting with adventures in Scotland as the family reconnects with their Scottish roots and family heritage and ending with the guys at a local thoroughbred race track. Next, on Hollywood Weapons,
host Terry Schappert puts several weapons to the test in an underwater experiment assessing a scene from Criminal Minds. Then, in an iconic scene from JAWS, Chief Brody hangs onto his sinking boat as the giant great white shark approaches him with a scuba tank lodged in its mouth, so the guys construct a giant replica shark on a motorized platform to test if you can hit, and explode, the tank with an M1 Garand rifle. Next, on Carter’s W.A.R., Ivan joins an elite team to see how wildlife is captured, bought, and sold. This “Wildlife Trade” is a ground-breaking business model that could change the entire face of conservation in Africa. Friday Night at the Movies closes out the week with a group of four men who come together to help fight injustices and bring peace and equality back to a small western town, in the 1985 American western film Silverado.
