Respected TV personalities Bill Sherck, Ron Schara, Scott Fransen and Travis Frank bring viewers along on another riveting season of upland hunting on “The Flush,” while engaging Pheasants Forever and Quail Forever members who volunteer on the front lines for habitat conservation efforts nationwide. This season features hunts across the country, including a breathtaking trip to the Alberta prairie for Hungarian partridge, a ringneck pheasant hunt with Minnesota’s original Conservation Reserve Program (CRP) farmer, and a trip with Pheasants Forever’s President and CEO, Marilyn Vetter, to her family’s farm in North Dakota for a pheasant hunt. 

“We’re excited to showcase another action-packed hunting season in pursuit of wild birds in wild places,” said Travis Frank. “We hunted a variety of upland bird species with passionate hunters all across North America to showcase real bird hunting adventures that every hunter can experience. It’s a season filled with highs & lows, success & heartbreak – it’s a real-life journey through the uplands and we’re excited to bring viewers along with us once again.”
