Sportsman Channel reaches more than 36 million U.S. television households.

Here are some Sportsman Channel shows:

Avian-X TV
Avian-X TV is the Sportsman Channel’s go-to show for all things waterfowl and turkey hunting. Co-host Matt Morrett travels across the United States and Canada to bring viewers the best bird hunts, calling tactics, and strategies to help hunters improve their skills in the woods and on the water.

MeatEater
Steven Rinella will deconstruct and master any hunting technique; track and pursue prey; and procure his own food, which he will turn into a mouth-watering fireside meal. Far from trophy or sport hunting, Rinella stays true to our ancestral tradition of sustenance hunting. Nothing he harvests goes to waste.

Big Deer TV
On Big Deer TV, veteran hunter Mike Hanback travels across North America in pursuit of big, mature bucks, providing hunting tips and tricks along the way. Big Deer TV features fair-chase hunts that are bound to get your heart pounding from excitement.

Bill Dance Outdoors
Bill Dance Outdoors, hosted by noted fisherman Bill Dance, is the most popular fishing show in the United States. The show focuses on different aspects of recreational fishing techniques, like how to fish and what bait to use.

Handguns & Defensive Weapons
Handguns & Defensive Weapons is one of the most popular shooting shows on the Sportsman Channel. The show primarily talks about guns, ammunition, and accessories that are used for personal protection. It also includes defensive tactics, product reviews, shooting advice, and more.
