What a year! Season 3 is on the way!

May 29, 2018

It has been an absolutely crazy whirlwind of a year.   While most people's hunting seasons have been over for awhile, the Nick's Wild Crew has been canvassing the globe in it's never-ending quest to bring you the adventures that Nick's Wild Ride has become famous for. 

 

 

I am so proud of what we have captured for Season 3.  Filming started in Italy last APRIL!   And we are just finishing up now.   It has taken me to many places that I had never been, and a few that I was excited to revisit.   I have checked off many bucket list items.   I have eaten some amazing food (and a few things that weren't so amazing), met some incredibly interesting people, and had some truly spectacular hunts.  

 

Now, as we begin finishing episodes in preparation for the Season 3 Debut on OUTDOOR CHANNEL in late June, I am really enjoying reliving these memories all over again.   And, I absolutely can not wait to share them with all of you.

 

There were so many amazing places I traveled to this year... all over the world and here at home.   But, here are a few of my favorite highlights:


 

 

 

NEW ZEALAND!

 

I revisited my good friend Richard and Sarah Burdon at Glen Dene Hunting & Fishing in New Zealand for some unfinished business.   Last year, you may remember I struck out on my dream of taking a backcountry Bull Tahr. Well, this year I didn't strike out.  Instead, I connected on a 15 year old giant bull!

This was one of the highlights of my hunting career.  And I'm still smiling!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

ALASKA!!!

 

I made it back to Alaska, this time to chase Grizzlies.   I am absolutely smitten with Alaska and I couldn't stay away.   I spent time with the Inupiat people of Kotzebue, AK and learned so much about their culture and their food.   The food was unlike anything I've ever experienced and I can't wait for you to see what I eat!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

ITALY!!!

 

I had the great fortune to hunt upland birds in Italy and visit the home of FRANCHI in Urbino, Italy.  Not only did I get to hunt but I also learned a thing or two about Italian cooking and drank way too much wine!  

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

COLORADO!!!

 

After a week of grinding it out on my first ever PUBLIC LAND elk hunt outside of Meeker, CO I finally connected with a beautiful bull.  This hunt was special in so many ways.   We spent a lot of time on horseback and saw some amazing country.  I made some great new friends at Ripple Creek Lodge and ate some amazing food. And, I got to spend my birthday hunting elk! We explored the history-lacked town of Meeker and met some interesting characters, to say the least! 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 SPAIN!!!!

 

One of the highlights of my year was definitely my trip to Spain.   I spent almost 2 weeks there and saw several different regions of this incredible country.  It is one of the most stunningly beautiful places I've ever seen and I can't wait to go back.   My host Antonio of Iber Hunting was absolutely incredible.   I hunted 2 different species of Ibex and Barbary Sheep (Aoudad).  Truly a trip of a lifetime and a dream come true.

 

 

 

 

 

 

KENTUCKY!!!

 

After years of trying I finally took a mature whitetail in full velvet in September.   I shared the moment with my family and best friends at deer camp.   A moment I'll never forget.  

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 NEW MEXICO!!!

 

I had the amazing honor of joining a team of reenactors, or "Living Historians" at a civil war era fort outside of Lincoln, NM.   I learned so much from these guys and got to fire their Mountain Howitzer cannon.  Yup... that's right... I got to fire a cannon.  How cool is that?

 

 

 

I can't wait for you all to see Season 3...  Thank you for watching and making Season 2 a huge success.   And, thank you to our sponsors for making it possible.   Please support them.

 

 

Cheers

 

Nick
