2007 : Fred Trost Dies

July 17, 2018 all-day


First Episode of Michigan Outdoors, Hosted by Fred Trost, November 5, 1981

If you loved hunting and fishing, then Fred Trost was your guide. Every Thursday night for decades, Trost hosted Michigan Outdoors (and eventually Practical Sportsman), wandering the state for trophy bucks and the biggest catch.

“Michigan Outdoors” was broadcast on public television across the state until legal troubles over an investigative series on deer scent lures led to his departure in 1992. Trost later began broadcasting another P-B-S show, “Practical Sportsman.” He earned a law degree before stopping production in 2005.
