At the heart of this partnership is a concerted effort to promote and safeguard outdoor heritage and conservation. Through a blend of education, inspiration, entertainment and accessibility, the partnership aims to connect outdoorsmen and women with the beauty of the great outdoors while fostering respect for its blessings.
The Green Way Outdoors is an educational hunting and fishing reality TV series set to redefine how we engage with the natural world. Boasting high-quality, captivating content designed to appeal to diverse audiences and levels of expertise, the show is scheduled to premiere on The History Channel on September 2, 2023.
"I am proud to stand with the National Wild Turkey Federation, and I am excited for our viewers to witness their work on the History Channel," said Kyle Green of The Green Way Outdoors.
Beginning in September, each Saturday unfolds a back-to-back airing of two new episodes, broadcasting consecutively at 9:00 a.m. and 9:30 a.m. on The History Channel. Additionally, each episode will be available on History Streaming the day following each episode.
This season features ten episodes following Green and his closest friends as they travel the globe in pursuit of wild game and dynamic conservation stories. From extreme hunting and fishing adventures to delving into the origins of our food, The Green Way Outdoors promises an immersive experience like no other.
Audiences will follow the entire process from harvest to the plate as Green takes viewers through preparing the harvested game and demonstrating delicious ways to cook each one.
Throughout the season, viewers will also gain insights into the conservation of native American species, such as buffalo, moose and alligator. Throughout these lessons, Green will also shed light on the ongoing detrimental impacts caused by non-native invasive species like Asian Carp, Snakehead and Pythons.
"In this season, we feature a turkey episode where we really dig into the National Wild Turkey Federation and all the work they do to help build turkey populations," Green said. "In Michigan, our wild turkey population was nearly extinct and now we have a robust population. NWTF had a lot to do with that. Who knows if I would have even gotten into hunting if it wasn't for them?"
