New Season for Union Member Adventures in ‘Escape to the Wild’

Illinois Firefighter (IAFF) Greg Curry’s elk-hunting adventure in some of Colorado’s most breathtaking countryside kicks off the fourth season of ”Escape to the Wild” on VERUS Country. The season premiere of the show, which takes union members on once-in-a-lifetime hunting and fishing adventures, will air Sunday, Jan. 3, at 9:30 a.m. EST.  

The show is a union-sponsored television series of the Theodore Roosevelt Conservation Partnership (TRCP). “Escape to the Wild” is supported by the Union Sportsmen’s Alliance (USA), a joint venture of the TRCP and 21 unions to promote conservation and access for hunters and anglers.

While the show chronicles each union member’s outdoor adventure, it also gives viewers a look into the lives of the winners—their struggles, their triumphs and their commitment to their union, families and the outdoors. 

Some other lucky winners this year have included Southwest Airlines flight attendant Karen Carrolan, a Transport Workers Union (TWU) member who does all she can to convince other women that hunting is cool, and Bricklayers (BAC) member and Ireland native William Higgins. 

Tune in to VERSUS Country this season as winners pursue exotic Africa game, follow the bugle of bull elk, play tug-of-war with Guatemala sailfish, hunt for caribou on the endless tundra, outwit whitetail across the U.S. and hunt black bear on Vancouver Island. 

Encore airings of each show are on Mondays at 12:30 p.m. and Thursdays at 2 p.m. EST. Check your local listings.
