New outdoor debate show tackles hunting & shooting’s burning questions.

June 23, 2022


BARNEVELD, Wis. – What would your one gun for Jurassic Park be? What would be the coolest small game animal to add antlers to? Why is the 6.5 Creedmoor® the most polarizing hunting cartridge?
Familiar Vortex Nation™ Podcast personalities and brand ambassadors offer their opinions on a variety of topics in Spaghetti Shootout available now on YouTube.
Click here to watch. The show features high-energy discussions over pop-culture, hunting gear, tactics, game cookery, and anything relevant (or irrelevant) to hunting, shooting, and the outdoors.
“We wanted to create a fun series that delivered more opportunity for customers wanting to get to know their favorite folks from the Vortex® team,” explains Content Manager, Erik Barber. “The idea behind Spaghetti Shootout is simple—imagine ESPN’s Around the Horn® and Pardon the Interruption® Vortex-I-fied for the hunting and shooting community.”

In each monthly episode, a panel of personalities shoot from the hip with opinions on a variety of topics. As they speak, viewers watch a points-counter increase or decrease based on the whims of Vortex® media personality and host, Jimmy Hamilton. Debate topics are time capped. Whoever can argue and articulate their thoughts the best accumulates the most points until a winner is declared at the end of each episode.

“Creating fun, new ways to engage with our customers is always our top priority,” says Barber. “This fun twist in outdoor talk programing gives us more opportunity to go on good-humored rants about things that excite people who love shooting and the outdoors.”
