LANSING — The Michigan Department of Natural Resources continues its partnership with the Outdoor Channel on production of the 2021 season of its television series “Wardens.”  
New episodes began Dec. 28 and will air on the Outdoor Channel every Monday at 8:30 p.m., Tuesday at 2:30 a.m. and 1:30 p.m., Friday at 7:30 p.m. and Sunday at 2:30 p.m. The show also continues to be available on Negaunee-based station WLUC Sundays at 9:30 a.m. (all Eastern times).
Focusing on ice fishing, bear hunting, opening day of firearm deer hunting season and more, the episodes will showcase the law enforcement work of DNR conservation officers, as well as the science behind the DNR’s natural resources management efforts.
“Since the show began filming in Michigan in 2017, 39 episodes have aired and viewership is over 28 million,” said David Haupt, analyst in the DNR’s Gladwin Field Office who helps coordinate production. “We’re excited to continue offering people a closer look at what the DNR does to take care of Michigan’s natural and cultural resources.”
Michigan-based Wolf Creek Productions is filming episodes at locations around the state with conservation officers and staff members from other DNR divisions who will be featured throughout the season.
