Director Paul Sheehan explains how this new and dynamic series started:
This shows concept came from a love a nature and me attending the Outdoor Channels “Golden Mouse Awards”. I was disappointed to see that all of there programing as things like Bow Hunting Fish. There was nothing about people using the outdoors for adventure and even hunting shows don’t really teach people how to do things in the outdoors. On the other hand shows like Survivor man don’t teach practical skills and if anything comes across as nature is a place to be feared. Our show is designed to entertain and educate as we expect people to go out and use what we teach.
Next week we will feature the second installment of the first Episode of Tales from the Trail.
