Outdoor Adventure on Vermont PBS

Join Lawrence Pyne and Gina Bullard for hunting, fishing, exploration, family activities, conservation and more. We also explore many of Vermont's pristine Wildlife Management Areas – wilderness destinations in our own backyard.

Tuesdays at 7:30 p.m. and Saturdays at 10 a.m. – or anytime online!


One of the best ways to discover new adventures is by hearing about them from fellow outdoor enthusiasts. Now here's a chance to share your favorite adventures with other Outdoor Journal viewers. Send us an email to let us know your favorite hike, paddle or camping spot within our viewing area and you may be selected to be featured in an upcoming Outdoor Journal segment. Our crew will spend a day with you and your family or friends to learn what makes your favorite outdoor destination so enjoyable and special. Send your email to mailto:oj@vermontpbs.org and we hope to see you on a trail or waterway real soon.

Do you know the name of the mountain that Neil and Daley are hiking in this promo? Viewers who email the correct answer to oj@vermontpbs.org will have a chance to be randomly selected to receive an Outdoor Journal hat or Vermont PBS T-shirt!
