8/28/2009

The fall outdoors line-up on ESPN2 features variable airtimes for some of the regular shows. This weekly blog will highlight those shows and their airtimes in an effort to keep the avid viewers informed of their favorites.

The weekend of August 29-30 begins with episode eight of Driven to Hunt airing at its normal time, 7 a.m. ET. Join the Driven to Hunt cameras for a hunt with NASCAR legend Bobby Labonte, who hunts for a trophy bull with some New Mexico guides that speak a language all their own. It's a hunt like no other that ends with a big bull down.

The mini-show Z-Man also airs at its normal time of 7:26 a.m. ET when Casey Ashley shows how to rig/fish a floating lizard.

The changes begin with episode one of Browning Expeditions airing at 10 a.m. ET. Join host Stephen LeBlanc and guide Bill Norton as they chase one of America's prized big-game species, the elk.

On The Road With Mobil 1, a mini-show, follows at 10:26 a.m. ET with Kelly Jordon and Charlie Hartley giving their tips and techniques for wheel and tire maintenance on your vehicle and trailer. Catch full episodes of this mini-show after it airs.

The Redfish Cup lands in Kemah, Texas, at 10:30 a.m. ET, where teams crowd around the jetties to catch the biggest two-day limits to earn them a spot on the final day of competition. The team of Alderman and Pitts counter with the long trip to the Louisiana marshes in search of 8-plus-pound redfish.

Fishing on the Edge slips into the slot at 10:56 a.m. ET, and Ike shows you how to stroke a jig. In this technique, a violent stroke of the rod gets a giant jig in motion and the big fish can't resist it as it falls back to the bottom. Full episodes of Fishing on the Edge can be found here after it airs.
