Josh Turner recently appeared on an episode of Gridiron Outdoors, a show on the Outdoor Channel where former pro football player Mike Pawlawski ventures into the wild each week with a new guest. What was on the agenda for the episode with South Carolina native country star and outdoor enthusiast Josh Turner? An epic hog hunt.
Turner took to social media and posted the following photo to promote his TV appearance, which aired on Valentine’s Day.
During the episode, the duo went hog hunting at Tejon Ranch in California and ended up taking down an enormous 300-plus pound wild boar.
“What an exciting day,” said Turner. “Mike and the guys were great to hunt with and this hog is incredible. They say he’s in the top 1% of what they see as far as size goes. It took four grown men to hoist him onto the tailgate!”
In a preview for the episode, Turner explained that days off are rare for him. When he does have a free time, however, he loves to spend it outdoors. In true mountain man fashion, Turner was rocking an impressive beard, which was a result of his participation in St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital’s annual “No Shave November.”
