BEAVERTON, Ore. — The Sportsman Channel will highlight some of the most exciting, hardcore hunts you’ve ever seen on Saturday, June 2, as part of Leupold’s #BeRelentless Hunts Marathon. The three-hour programming block will feature episodes of “Jim Shockey’s The Professionals” and “Pigman: The Series,” and is due to air from 5-8 p.m. EST.
The featured episodes were selected specifically to highlight some of the most relentless moments of each series. Viewers will be able to join Jim Shockey as he travels to Iran to hunt dangerous cliff sides for sheep and to Azerbaijan in search of the Dagestan Tur. Later, Eva Shockey joins the marathon to hunt reindeer on the Aleutian Islands. Brian “Pigman” Quaca rounds things out with a two-episode adventure in Mexico, where he and his team pursue trophy whitetail and more.
“The entire Leupold team prides itself on building the finest, toughest optics around because we know our customers require products that are as relentless as they are – and we wanted to highlight those themes with the #BeRelentless marathon,” said Michael Wunnicke, Director of Marketing for Leupold & Stevens, Inc. “Jim and Eva Shockey are two of the best representatives of that diehard spirit in our industry, and Pigman is known for his dedication and tenacity – these are three hours that you won’t want to miss.”
“Jim Shockey’s The Professionals,” which will be featured four times during the marathon, takes viewers behind the curtain and into the life and career of Jim Shockey and his production team. “Pigman: The Series,” which airs twice, is the story of Brian “Pigman” Quaca, who entertains audiences with his different take on traditional hunting television. Both Shockey and Quaca are longtime users of Leupold products.
