Local Bluecollar Bowhunters unleashed their bows in early May to tag a huge trophy, this “monster” gar along side TNT Outdoor celebrity, Todd Cast.

Bluecollar Bowhunter Jeremy Sickles brought down this 182 pound alligator gar in the Trinity River. Fellow bowhunter, Jared Brumley also took in plenty of kill with his host of gar caught.

Cast has some great pursuits to his credit with over 25 years of hunting experience. He has bagged some record book animals and has experience as a guide. TNT Outdoor Explosion is a high energy reality based outdoor show hosted by Todd and Tia Cast. In this unique husband and wife hunting show, TNT Outdoor Explosion, Cast informs viewers of the places to be to find out about the latest products and tactical strategies to help  bag the next trophy.

The duo offer more than just expert hunting tips – a portion of the season is dedicated to hunts that feature terminally ill children and fulfilling their wishes. TNT and HOPE Outdoors have teamed helping to make dream hunts come true for these terminally ill children.

Since 2008, the teamwork of TNT and HOPE Outdoors has been fortunate enough to help make dreams come true for children with diseases such as cancer, muscular dystrophy, cystic fibrosis, and paraplegics just to name a few.

According to Jared Brumley, the footage they took on their recent adventure is scheduled to air on the Sportsman Channel and the Outdoor Channel towards the end of the year.

Sickles explains on their website (www.bluecollarbowhunter.com) that their goal is to show everyone what can be and is experienced in the outdoors. “From the trial and error to the successful hunt, we are here to show you what bluecollar bowhunting is all about,” Sickle said.The BCB encouragaes the incorporation of family into the great outdoors.

How to define a BCB?

According to their website:

A passion for the outdoors, and not just the animals that live there.

A supportive, patient, and forgiving family.  With such a passion for everything outdoors, it consumes any extra time (if any) after work.  This can be very tough on family.

A willingness to go the extra mile.  "If you want something you have never had, you have to be willing to do something you've never done"
