Deer & Deer Hunting TV begins airing the third week of July on NBC Sports. This is our ninth season, and it promises to be our best to date. Show hosts Dan Schmidt and Brad Rucks will feature and interview special guests such as Charles Alsheimer and Steve Bartylla, both of whom have spent decades studying and hunting deer.

Show topics include legendary deer camps, public-land hunting strategies, venison preparation tips, and our new, exclusive guides for predicting peak rutting times in the North and South. The first show of Season 9 is about the “Modern Hunter,” appropriately named because of today’s continued changes and evolution of technology, ammunition, firearms, bows, crossbows and gear. It’s a great kickoff to a season loaded with super information about our country’s favorite game animal.

Deer & Deer Hunting TV is the thinking man’s guide to whitetail hunting, teaching, entertaining and informing hunters on proven strategies, hot trends and new equipment.

Deer & Deer Hunting TV airs in primetime on Sundays at 9:30 p.m. Eastern (8:30 p.m. Central), and on Tuesdays at 2 p.m. Eastern (1 p.m. Central) on NBC Sports. Be sure to watch and we hope you enjoy the shows!
