Outpouring Follows Death Of Sportsman Channel Host

The Sportsman Channel says it's deeply saddened by the death of one of its TV hosts who traveled the world in search of big game and shared his adventures on his program "A Rifleman's Journal."

The company in a statement on its Facebook page says it will miss 43-year-old Gregory G. Rodriguez's "thoughtfulness, candor and dedication to encourage a safe and enjoyable outdoor experience for all."

Police say Rodriguez of Sugar Land, Texas, died Thursday in northwestern Montana when he was shot by another man in an apparent jealous rage while the TV personality visited the shooter's wife.

An outpouring on social media has followed the death of Rodriguez, who combined his comfort in front of the camera with hunting and shooting expertise into a popular program.
