Through trial and error, the Sissneys and the show have constantly improved, and the proof is in their growing audience.

Most of the shows are about hunting in Oklahoma and the surrounding states. But there are also are fishing trips and plans for episodes about camping and outdoor cooking.

The husband and wife team make it different from most outdoor shows, but the Sissneys also are willing to be on camera out of their comfort zone, such as their first time fly fishing on a trip to the Lower Mountain Fork River.

“A lot of it is us learning to do something new and not coming across as an expert,” Stacy said.

Later this year, Stacy will be part of an all-girls, self-guided mule deer hunt in Wyoming with Jon's cousin and one of her friends for a show.

Because they appear on television, Jon said most people assume they must be getting rich.

“We get it all the time, ‘Oh, you got a TV show. You must be making a ton of money,” Jon said. “People think since you are on TV that you must be getting paid. That is far from the truth. The way outdoors TV works, we've got to buy our TV time.

“We have to pay someone to produce the show. Then we put it out there. The only way we are able to do that is find sponsors, we like to call them partners, like H&H.”

The auto repair shop is still paying the bills, but the Sissneys say they are having a blast hosting “His & Her Outdoors.”

Their 7-year-old daughter, Maison, is often featured, and more cousins and kids will be joining in on the family outdoor adventures next season.

Maybe the Sissneys will become Oklahoma's version of Duck Dynasty.

“Without the beards,” Stacy insists.
