Bushnell’s Trigger Effect2018-11-28T10:36:36-05:00


Bushnell’s Trigger Effect breaks the standard mold of hunting adventure TV shows.  Although our Hosts and Pro-Staff provide high-quality outdoor adventures in every episode, we also focus on the hunt before and after the trigger is pulled with a high-value on education. There is more to hunting than just the stalk and taking of the harvest.

The show draws from the diversified outdoor education and experience of the two Hosts.  The Bushnell’s Trigger Effect team was carefully selected to ensure that the production was well-rounded in not only being able to offer the viewer a great cinematic experience but also provide multiple perspectives of expertise from within the entire outdoor industry.  Dean, Kent and their Pro-Staff have all enjoyed very successful professional careers in the outdoor sector and now bring that experience to Bushnell’s Trigger Effect.
