Outdoor Channel kicks off its Q4 programming this week. The cabler is celebrating the start of the fall season 95 shows, including the new “Deadliest Hunts” on Fridays where the hunter becomes the hunted.

Among the network regulars is “The Choice with Ralph & Vicki,” which focuses on bowhunting and hunting, while Wednesday offers the reality competition Field & Stream‘s “Total Outdoorsman Challenge.” To celebrate 10 years, 12 competitors dive into events to win more than $50,000 worth of cash and prizes, and the title of All-Star Total Outdoorsman.

In November, all-new episodes of “Gold Fever” begin, as host Tom Massie searches for the earth’s most precious metals.

Outdoor Channel offers a number of themed programming blocks that combine the network’s top shows with recognizable brands in the outdoor arena. Among the big weekday prime-time programming blocks are: “Bear Archery Bowhunting Monday,” “Mossy Oak Tuesday Night Pursuits,” “MidwayUSA’s Wednesday Night at the Range,” “Primos Thursday Night Calls of the Hunt” and “Friday Night at the Lodge,” presented by Dick’s Sporting Goods.”
