Premieres Thursday at 7:30 p.m.

5. Jimmy Houston Outdoors

If it involves enticing peacocks in South America, tempting largemouth in Florida, catching crappie on Lake Tenkiller or trying to outwit the white tail buck in Indiana, Jimmy Houston Outdoors puts you right there in the boat or tree stand. Best known for his blonde locks and trademark laugh, Jimmy Houston spends each week on a lake or in the woods somewhere between Maine and Texas. He also takes his show to colorful spots in Canada, South America and Mexico. Premieres Friday at 7:30 p.m.

6. The Great Southwest Outdoors

The Great Southwest Outdoors is a show with an informative approach to both hunting and history.
