Beginning this summer, trappers will have an all-trapping show to watch on television for the first time ever.
Alan Probst, who stars on the television show “All Outdoors With Alan Probst,” has spearheaded the effort and announced on TrapperMan.com that the new show, which will be called “F&T’s North American Trapper,” will be broadcast to over 32 million households starting in July.
“This is a big day in trapping history,” Probst wrote.
The show will be broadcast on In Country Television, which can be found on basic subscription packages on DirecTV channel 344 and Dish Network channel 230.
“This is the first of its kind and all 28 minutes and 30 seconds of each show will be dedicated to the promotion of trapping, furbearers, the fur industry and the debunking of anti-myths on trapping abroad,” Probst wrote.
“F&T’s North American Trapper” will air twice a week with its primetime slot on Sunday evenings at 11 p.m. EST and another timeslot at 6:30 a.m. EST on a yet-to-be-determined day. There will be 13 episodes in the first season, which will run through the end of September with rebroadcasts through December.
And if you don’t have In Country Television, worry not. Probst said following the original broadcast, all episodes will be featured in their entirety on the show’s Web site, which is still being created at this time.
Trapper & Predator Caller Executive Editor Jim Spencer and trappers Brad Harris, Jim Spencer, Johnny Thorpe, John Epler, Mike Gurski will be among those featured in the first season, according to Probst.
F&T Fur Harvester’s Trading Post is the title sponsor with Duke Traps also sponsoring the show.
