Outdoor Adventure on VPT

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!


Esteemed outdoor writer and sportsman Lawrence Pyne has hosted Outdoor Journal since the beginning. He leads us across Vermont's woods, fields and streams with experienced insight and an appreciation for the outdoors.
Outdoor correspondent Gina Bullard is also a reporter for WCAX-TV. Gina likes to 'test her mettle' on new outdoor experiences – and isn't afraid to share the results with her audience.
