Renowned sportsman and conservationist Beau Turner is bringing his knowledge and unique talents exclusively to Sportsman Channel, the leader in outdoor TV for the American Sportsman, with the debut of his new original series, Beau Knows Outdoors. The weekly half-hour series premiered October 6 at 10:30 pm EST.

Hosting his first television series, Turner, the son of CNN founder and philanthropist Ted Turner, promises viewers a new type of outdoors program focusing not only on world-class hunting and fishing, but land conservation and management issues as he oversees Turner Enterprises' more than two million acres. Beau Knows Outdoors will also have a strong focus on youth participation and recruitment.

Beau Knows Outdoors blends Beau's passions—world-class hunting, land management/conservation and youth participation—for a unique television experience. The show will give viewers a front-row seat as Beau travels throughout the country managing his family's two million-plus acres of land and embarks on world-class hunting and fishing expeditions - usually with family and friends in tow, including his famous father. Along the way, Beau Knows Outdoors pursues and highlights the importance of land management and conservation, and he shines a light on the importance of youth outdoors involvement and recruitment.

“This is one of the most ambitious and eagerly anticipated projects in the history of our network,” said Gavin Harvey, CEO of Sportsman Channel. “As the leader in outdoor television programming, we are always looking for unique content for our passionate viewers. We have found that, and more, with Beau Turner and his new series. We are pulling out all the stops with aerial shots of Turner's Ranches, which have never been seen on TV before. This is truly a "behind-the-scenes" experience that outdoor enthusiasts and fans of the Turner family will enjoy.”

“My ultimate goal is to get young people out hunting, fishing, hiking, kayaking or just playing in the mud – away from their computers and video games and into nature. This show has given me a platform to reach a broader audience with that message,” said Beau Turner. “Throughout the show, I'm out in the field talking about everything from our work with endangered species, to wildlife management to the crucial role sportsmen play in protecting our environment and conserving our natural resources.”

The first episode starts with Beau at the Turner's Flying D Ranch in Montana in pursuit of monster bull elk. He also takes viewers on a "behind the scenes" tour of the Beau Turner Youth Conservation Center in Tallahassee, Fla., where his work really comes to life. In episode four, viewers will travel to Argentina with Beau in search of Red Stag, as well as the Russian Boar. In future episodes, Beau's father, Ted, will also join the crew in pursuit of his passions – fishing and quail hunting.
