You know you’re doing something right when the phone rings and it’s Pilgrim Studios asking if you might be available to film for upcoming episode of Sarah Palin’s Amazing America on the Sportsman Channel.
About Amazing America
Amazing America with Sarah Palin is an anthology of stories that explore some of the most original, interesting – and sometimes inspiring – people, places and pastimes connected to America’s outdoors lifestyle. Governor Palin takes viewers coast-to-coast into what Sportsman Channel calls “Red, Wild and Blue America” – where the American Spirit and the Great Outdoors are celebrated in equal measure. From everyday people to business leaders and celebrities; in cities, suburbs and towns; the leader of the “Status Go” movement – Palin – will find the stories of people and places that share and reflect her passion for what makes America the great, amazing nation that it is.
The Governor definitely gets people talking. Time Magazine even named her as one of the “100 Most Influential People in the World” two years in a row. Beyond politics, she passionately American and I admire her steadfast dedication to our Second Amendment rights.
Being a part of her new show and having the chance to share my passion for the shooting sports was a no-brainer. I don’t know what clips will make it on air, but an awesome film crew and co-host Mark Christopher Lawrence (MCL) got a true “day in the life of yours truly when they boarded a plane, drove 4.5 hours to my home and filmed all day in the brutal cold. When I say brutal, I mean it. The temperature was -9 when the cameras started rolling (that’s without the windchill), the wind never stopped blowing and even though the sun did peek out for a tiny bit, it didn’t make it in the teens.
I took MCL through sample courses of fire from the four major action shooting sports, USPSA, Steel Challenge, IDPA and NRA Action Pistol. He shot great all things considered. Heck I was happy to hit the target most of the time through my numb, gloved fingers! At the end of the day we warmed up inside with an awesome bowl of my favorite venison chili.
Here’s a teaser video…

I hope you’ll set those DVR’s if you can’t tune in to the Sportsman Channel on Thursday, April 3rd at 8:00pm EST for the special one hour premiere. As always, I love to hear what you think!
