Meet The Host

Josh Atkinson

Josh Atkinson

After watching his first episode of Marty Stouffer’s Wild America as a toddler, Josh has been fascinated by the outdoors, wildlife and game management. An avid outdoorsman ever since he obtained his first hunting license at the age of 15, he continues to enjoy hunting all game species, trapping predators and introducing others to the outdoors.

While his heart lies in bowhunting mature whitetails and turkeys, hunting any species in any location is an experience he can’t resist. Josh picked up his first camera and started filming hunts in college in the late 90s. He’s been fortunate enough to harvest a DIY moose on video and 14 Pope and Young class animals in the last nine years, including three gross Boone and Crockett whitetails in the last five seasons. Sharing the journey, adventure and passion for the outdoors through video is what he lives for.

Trent Cole

Trent Cole

Born and raised in Southern Ohio, Trent is the cornerstone of Blitz TV. As a two-time NFL Pro-bowler known as a run stopper and a relentless pass rusher, his leadership, energy, attitude and passion are nothing short of contagious. With deeply seeded roots in farming and the outdoor lifestyle, enjoying the great outdoors and sharing it with others, Trent is not your run-of-the-mill professional athlete.

Throughout his 12 seasons in the NFL, he became known as “Tha Hunter” and his infatuation with hunting continued to shine through as he’d draw his “air-bow” after every sack or big play. As he steps off the football field and into full-time roles as a father, husband, farmer and hunter, he continues to solidify those roots in the outdoors with the same fervor he showed chasing quarterbacks on Sunday. From the mountains and plains of the west to the shores of the East Coast, his mission of sharing his adventures in the woods and on the water with others more intense than ever.
