Featured Guests: Kyle Lamb, Randy Newburg, Joe Kenney

This week on The Revolution with Jim and Trav presented by Outdoor Channel, Sportsman Channel and World Fishing Network, we'll serve up the need to know basics for bagging whitetails, mulies, elk, moose and dall sheep. That's right, it's the beginning of September and that means that big game seasons are opening up all around the country. For weeks, die-hard sportsmen and women have been scouting everything from their local woods or prairies, to far-flung mountain ranges and gnarly canyons for their favorite game animals. Yes, just as the dog days of summer are fading so is the sweet by-and-by where we have been hunting for months. Our big game fantasies are quickly becoming reality as the silhouette of deer targets begin to dot every hunter’s yard and we're using up our remaining sick days for gun range therapy classes. Joining us in our “Wild Game Mixed Bag” pursuit will be Kyle Lamb of Viking Chronicles Wednesdays at 8:30 p.m. ET on Outdoor Channel, plus Randy Newberg from Leupold's Fresh Tracks with Randy Newberg seen Sundays at 11:00 p.m. ET on Sportsman Channel and the Owner/Operator of KOVE in Lander, Wyoming, Joe Kenney.

“You don’t have to fill a tag to have a fulfilling hunt, enjoy the journey.” – Kyle Lamb

Sergeant Major Kyle E. Lamb (retired), spent more than 21 years with the United States Army, 15 of which were with the U.S. Army Special Operations. SGM Lamb has conducted combat operations in numerous theaters of operation, including Mogadishu, Somalia (Black Hawk Down), and has served numerous tours in Iraq and Bosnia. He is now bringing his skills and expertise to the screen as the host of Viking Chronicles Wednesdays at 8:30 p.m. ET on Outdoor Channel. Tune in to The Revolution for a two-part interview with Lamb where he begins by discussing an Alaskan sheep hunt. Lamb talks about the circumstances leading up to the moment he found himself taking a 728-yard shot on a ram and how even an experienced shooter, like himself, gets nervous when taking a shot. He then switches gears and dishes on the upcoming moose hunting trip he is preparing for. As a former military man, Lamb knows what he needs to survive and that makes packing simple. As long as he has food, water, ammo and some shelter, Lamb says he’s fine. Part of the experience is dealing with problems as they arise and in the event of poor weather conditions, like he has experienced before, you figure out how to deal with the discomfort. Lamb talks about the undisclosed destination they are headed for in Alaska as well as the firearm he’ll be taking along. He discusses wood versus carbon fiber stocks and also stresses the importance of keeping the pressure off of the barrel so you don’t throw off your shot and miss your opportunity at the game you pursue.

“I spent six years making every possible mistake an elk hunter could make, before I finally got a bull.” – Randy Newberg


Randy Newberg, host of Leupold's Fresh Tracks with Randy Newberg Sundays at 11:00 p.m. ET on Sportsman Channel, is the voice of the public land hunter in America. Decades of hunting all species across public lands has provided both the experience and perspective that has allowed him to become the leading advocate for the self-guided hunter; hunters dependent upon public lands for hunting access. Listen in as he discusses elk hunting, beginning with “desk scouting”. Newberg says the first thing he does is look at the calendar period he’ll be hunting elk and then identify the needs of the animals at the time he’ll be pursuing them. This helps identify whether you need to be seeking out locations with food and water or locations with cover, etc. There are a lot of tools out there for hunters to use in their pre-scouting efforts and Randy talks about what he uses. When it comes to his weapon of choice, Randy says he’s an equal opportunity elk hunter and while he loves archery hunting, generally his success rate is higher with a rifle. He’ll then dish out some tips for the DIY hunters out there looking to score an elk this fall. Randy says that the public land self-guided hunter has a success rate of about 15 percent when hunting bull elk. He’ll discuss setting realistic expectations and why the animal you shoot doesn’t have to be a new world record for you to be proud of it. “A 3 ½ year old bull elk is a very smart animal that has figured out how to live on the ground and use the landscape to his advantage. If you are able to get a 5x5 or anything that is 3 ½ and better, shoot it and pat yourself on the back.”


“The purpose of the hunt is to promote the ideals of good sportsmanship and game conservation.”  - Joe Kenney


Joe Kenney is the Owner/Operator of KOVE in Lander, Wyoming and he joins The Revolution to discuss the 73rd annual One Shot Antelope Hunt happening September 14th – 18th. The One Shot Antelope Hunt is a world class competitive hunt that pits eight three man teams against each other. The task of each team member is to harvest a pronghorn antelope with one-shot. The event, which started in 1940, is held each September at the base of the Wind River Mountains in Lander, Wyoming. Joe will discuss the rules of the tournament but also the legend of the hunt, where it all began, how it has evolved into the tournament it is today, and the notable guests that attend. Tune in for an inside look at this unique One Shot Antelope Hunt.
