About 'Call of the Wild'

Call of the Wild: Generation Next in Wyoming will make its premiere debut on the Sportsman Channel in 2012. This cutting edge program will feature all of the natural wonders that Wyoming has to offer through the Wyoming Game and Fish Department, while introducing ‘Generation Next’ to a life in the outdoors. Through interesting personal insights from kids selected to participate, the series will motivate participants and viewers alike to get out and experience the wonders of the wild with family and friends so that they will become the next generation of sportsmen.

Not only will Call of the Wild introduce these kids to both hunting and fishing lifestyles, but will also provide an awakening to the impact that a life in the outdoors can provide. Through a child’s own personal struggles or situations, audiences will travel on their journey of transformation and empowerment that only outdoor activities can provide. Audiences will be inspired to turn to the outdoors as an escape and to refresh their souls through all that Mother Nature has to offer. Through hunting and fishing excursions, our cast of kids will learn a new respect for the wildlife populations of Wyoming and gain valuable knowledge of hunting and fishing techniques as well as conservation efforts in our country.

Whether it’s hunting for whitetail deer and turkey, fishing for trout, salmon or bass, or learning wilderness survival tactics, kids will find strength, confidence and have fun learning about the hobbies that can stay with them for a lifetime. Call of the Wild will showcase the beautiful Wyoming landscape and team up with some of the best hunting and fishing outfitters and guides that the state has to offer.
