With its vast and varied hunting areas, lakes and streams, Tennessee is considered by many to be a sportsman’s paradise. We wholeheartedly agree. We love to bring you information about different areas in this region as well as the varied methods of hunting, fishing and boating.

Be sure to tune in and watch the show streaming live at 8 p.m. Central Time every Thursday evening on Nashville’s Channel 5+ (Comcast cable Channel 50) as we share our favorite tips and tricks for bringing home that trophy buck or that record-breaking bass.

This Week

High West Outfitters with Jim Breck BeanThis week Southern Woods and Waters Pro Staffer Zac Knowles shares a video from this February’s aoudad hunt with Jim Breck Bean of High West Outfitters of Fort Hancock, Texas, one of the premier outfitters in the west. Learn more the hunts Jim’s clients enjoy on Facebook. Zac went to West Texas to film two free range hunts for High West Outfitters. Three days in the Davis Mountains  gave Zac a whole new respect for these sheep and the terrain they inhabit. They are truly amazing animals. [Watch a short excerpt of Zac's video journal from that high-country hunt.]

Brian Pinton, another SWW Pro Staffer, is sitting in, too, to chat about yesterday’s turkey hunt. Look for video from that hunt in the next couple weeks.

Get out now to catch crappie on the bed in Tennessee! So fart 2014 has been a banner year for slab-sided crappies all across middle and west Tennessee. If you’ve never fished for these delicious fish, what are you waiting for!?

Crappie aren’t the only fish that are hot right now. We’ll be going after some big striped bass tomorrow, and we hope we’ll get some good footage to share from that trip, too.
