Jason and Robin MacPherson of Mountain Grove will be hosting an episode of the award-winning outdoor show, Addicted To The Outdoors with Jon and Gina which airs weekly on The Outdoor Channel.  The MacPhersons were selected to be guest hosts after an audition and interview process during the spring and summer of 2013.  

In November of last year Addicted To The Outdoors sent a producer and video crew to film Jason and Robin for six days during a portion of their fall archery whitetail deer hunting.  The MacPhersons are an avid outdoor family and dedicated bow hunters.  The filming took place on the MacPherson’s farm and in Ozark County on property owned by Rockbridge Rainbow Trout Ranch.

Jason says that he and Robin selected Southern Missouri for their hunts rather than heading to one of their other Midwest whitetail destinations because they wanted to showcase the beauty of the Ozarks region.

“Although harvesting a trophy class buck can be more challenging in our area than in other parts of the country, this is who we are and where we’re from and it’s one of the most beautiful places in the country…it’s God’s country,” says Jason.

During the episode the MacPherson’s match wits, using archery gear, with a remarkable whitetail buck dubbed, “Kenny.”  According to Robin, “This buck is truly the stuff of legends.”

The episode will begin airing on Monday, July 14 at 9 p.m., central standard time and will air again Thursday, July 17 at 10 a.m. and 5:00 p.m. central standard time on The Outdoor Channel.
