Pick a place on the globe.  Find a species to hunt or fish in that place. Find out what makes that place tick.


Nick's Wild Ride, with host Nick Hoffman, takes viewers on a unique journey as Nick digs deep into the food, culture, music, history, and heartbeat of a location as he hunts and fishes.   


This isn't a head-to-an-outfitter-and-hunt kind of show.  It's acutally the antithesis of that.   It's as much about the travel and adventure as it is about the hunt and canvassing the globe to find interesting places, compelling people, vibrant cluture, and good food and the history and stories behind those places.. Follow Nick on his quest to find non-typical species in non-typical places and soak up whatever craziness comes his way in the process.


Each episode leaves the viewer asking, "where will Nick end up next week?"
