Trophy Quest - Saturdays at 10:30 p.m. ET
With today's ever changing technology, firearm systems that are able to take an animal upwards of 1000 yards, scent blockers and full body 3D camo clothing, some sportsmen feel that the art of "hunting" has been lost.
Avid outdoorsman and host John Wilson of Trophy Quest International has decided to harvest every North American big game species with one single gun: a gun from his childhood. John will turn back the hands of time and revert back to the very first rifle his father gave him; an open sighted, lever action .30-30. Follow John through several "Trophy Quest" episodes as he begins his quest of the North American 29 - the 29 animals that comprise Safari Club International's famous North American Grand Slam, including Alaska-Yukon caribou, American bison, Central Canada caribou, Coastal or Continental black bear, Columbia black-tailed deer, desert mule deer and Rocky Mountain or California bighorn sheep.
