Buck Stops Here Episode Highest-Rated Hunting Show in VERSUS History!

The recent original episode where we shot two great bucks w/Remington R-25s down at Jacalon Ranch in South Texas was the most-watched hunting show ever on VERSUS—ever! I am both stoked and humbled by it. Thanks to our production company, Orion Multimedia, and especially to my producer Bill Z. Thanks to all the camera guys who shoot that awesome HD footage, you are the best. Thanks most of all to you guys and girls for watching. We’re working hard on Season 2. Got another monster road trip coming up, I’ll keep you posted.

BTW, VERSUS’ ratings continue to soar across the board; it’s the fastest-growing sports network, and I’m happy to be a part of it.


Curt's Gravatar Mike,
You deserve it. You put on an honest, hard-working and fun to watch show. There's a reason it's your show that rated this high. Congrats and keep up the good work.

Tim Yarbrough's Gravatar Congradulations, Mike. Great program, we look forward to every episode. Keep up the good work. Your honest, sincere and straight forward personality is what we want to see. People that are real and not fake, that do not act like they are superior than anybody. Thatwhy I watch versus, because of the good folks. Thanks for your hard work, we really enjoy all of your shows and segments. Tim from NC.

Licking Branch's Gravatar Awesome Mike! I caught my first episode the other night and wouldn't you know it you were in Missouri hunting with a boy for a youth hunt. What an awesome show that was. I don't think you could peel the hapiness off that boys face to this day. Great show!

Phil B.'s Gravatar Mike,

Congratulations on the high ratings. I had the opportunity to view two shows last night via my DVR. Both shows were outstanding. The tremendous amount of applicable advice/instruction you provide for the average hunter is much appreciated. I enjoy watching celebrities take giant deer from commercial hunting ranches as much as the next guy, but the "outdoor classroom" content you deliver in your show will help me and my kids find more success in the field. The type and quality of show you are producing is long overdue.

Best regards

David in NC's Gravatar Keep it real. That's what people like to see. We all are on here because we like to learn so keep looking for new ways to incorporate education in the program: maps, tactics, what works in different areas of the country, etc.

Keep it coming.
