Ep 084: Bushnell’s Trigger Effect TV

In this episode, I talk with Dean Trumbley and Kent Michie, hosts of Bushnell’s Trigger Effect TV (triggereffect.tv).  The show is on a number of places including The Sportsman channel, My Outdoor TV (myoutdoortv.com) and you can access prior season’s on their website.

We discuss a number of items ranging from how the show came about, Dean and Kent’s outdoor past, and something we are all passionate about which is stopping hunters from attacking other hunters. Dean and Kent made an awesome video about this called Hunting – The Big Picture (Hunting – The Big Picture). It was fantastic to talk with fellow outdoorsmen who believe like I do that without a change in how some hunters feel that they are entitled to put their views onto others, hunting and fishing could be in trouble for future generations.

We also spend time discussing how Dean and Kent run their show and that they do a lot of filming for each other, self-filming and maybe occasionally take a cameraperson with them. This keeps the hunt more intimate without having to have a large number of people go on trips with them.

We also discuss the fantastic sponsors that are what make the show possible. This includes Bushnell (bushnell.com), Savage Arms(savagearms.com), Federal Premium(federalpremium.com), Primos(primos.com),  Tactacam(tactacam.com), and the list goes on.

During their recent trip to the Shot Show (an industry event in Las Vegas), Dean and Kent were able to visit with some of their sponsors to see new products. Dean and Kent made some great videos on Shot Show products including an awesome Savage Model 212 bolt action Turkey gun (https://youtu.be/PtDjaNh1uZI), and if you are a predator hunter, the new Primo’s DogNet call (https://youtu.be/j6fEogVm-NM
