WHO: Outdoor Channel

WHAT: Kicking off Outdoor Channel's Q2 lineup is an all-new competition on network favorite "Jack Link's Major League Fishing."

Outdoor Channel will also re-air the three new shows that debuted in Q1, "Elite Tactical Unit: S.W.A.T.," "King of the Spring" and "Bottom Feeders."

Hosted by Mykel Hawke and presented by Sig Sauer, "Elite Tactical Unit: S.W.A.T (ETU)"debuted as Outdoor Channel's first-ever tactical competition series and features two teams made up of the best special weapons and tactics operators. Competitors are vying for more than $100,000 in cash and prizes for themselves and the S.W.A.T. departments they serve back home. Watch as the competitors complete action-filled missions that include simulated real-life situations.

Presented by RAM, "King of the Spring" pits brothers Mark and Terry Drury against one another in the ultimate turkey competition. Each lead a team of celebrity and industry leaders - including Rascal Flatts singer Gary LeVox, St. Louis Cardinals pitcher Kyle McClellan and Outdoor Channel's very own CEO Tom Hornish - in pursuit of 12 turkeys in three short weeks. See who comes out on top in this sibling rivalry.

The new original series "Bottom Feeders" follows three teams of commercial fishermen battling the harsh conditions of the environment while searching lakes and rivers for the opportunity to net thousands of unwanted fish (Carp, Sheepshead, Buffalo).
