Changes this week for outdoors shows

This weekend of outdoors on ESPN2 features a marathon of hunting and fishing programming on October 25th. With a reduced schedule on Saturday, October 24th, fans can catch all their favorite shows as late as 6:30 p.m. ET on Sunday.

The weekend opens Saturday with Mystik's Driven to Hunt at 7:00 a.m. ET, as cameras followed Kevin Harvick into the New Mexico mountains after trophy bull elk. Team Realtree's Bill Jordan paired up with Kevin for a black-powder hunt from some of the best elk country anywhere.

Sunday outdoor programming starts at 7:00 a.m. ET as well, with Chronicles of the Hunt. The Rio Grande turkey is the subject of this episode with veteran outdoorsmen such as Cabela's Tom Rosdail, Garmin's Ted Gartner, Do All Outdoors' Ben Fleming and a host of others head to southwest Texas for a spring-time adventure, where they share tips, tactics and stories on turkey hunting.

7:30 a.m. ET dawns with Pro Hunter Journal. Join hunters Kandi Kisky and David Blanton and learn some of their professional tactics as they hunt for giant whitetails.

Whitetail Country kicks off at 8:00 a.m. ET, with this week's episode includes tactics on getting permission and finding bucks, including a bio with North American Hunting Club editor and pro hunter Bill Miller.

At 8:30 a.m. ET, tune in for Territories Wild and follow bow-hunter Tom Miranda as he hunts the Ohio river bottoms for early-season, velvet-antlered bucks.

Catch Bill Jordan's Reeltree Outdoors at 9:00 a.m. ET. Finally successful at drawing a Wyoming elk tag, Realtree's Bill Jordan bow-hunts the game-rich Wagonhound Ranch. The elk rut is in full swing but that does not guarantee success with a bow and arrow.

Right afterwards, look out for another episode of Mystik's Driven to Hunt with NASCAR legend Richard Childress' grandchildren on a whitetail hunt in west Texas. Ty and Austin Dillon take monster bucks on this Childress Thanksgiving weekend.

Grateful Nation makes a special appearance at 11:00 a.m. ET Sunday, with Corporal Ryan Foster's capabilities as a disabled veteran and sportsman put to the test when he goes in search of a mule deer at Trophies Plus Outfitter in Wyoming.

At 11:30 a.m. ET watch Browning Expeditions featuring former American Idol performer Kristy Lee Cook. She joins host and wildlife artist Stephen LeBlanc as they ramble into the Lonestar State for some good old whitetail hunting.

The 6:00 p.m. ET hour is all Redfish Cup, with back-to-back episodes. First, the final regular season event is the stage for Cajun Phil and Kevin Broussard to be crowned Academy Sports + Outdoors Team of the Year Presented by Crocs. The largest slot limit of the year, 18 to 30 inches, will bring weights that challenge the record books in Biloxi, Miss. Then, look back at the kick-off to the 2009 Redfish Cup season in Punta Gorda, Fla. Due to local fishing pressure, Punta Gorda is considered one of the most challenging stops on the Redfish Cup tour. Day Two action features a field of 55 teams battle for five qualifying spots that will give them a chance at winning the first-place prize.
