Rubicon (noun): A limit that when passed exceeds the point of no return, typically resulting in irrevocable commitment.

For outdoorsman and Marine Corp veteran Brian Cillessen  and his brother Jeff Cillessen , going beyond the Rubicon is a way of life.

Beyond Rubicon follows the journey of two brothers, their dad, and a few select friends, who stop at nothing in the ethical pursuit of big game. An unscripted and authentic big game hunting show where they don’t just survive, but thrive!  Beyond Rubicon uses inspiring cinematography to capture a hunting experience that ignites the primal instincts that live inside every hunter.

Airing on the Sportsman Channel  at 7 p.m. (EST) Wednesdays starting in January 2016, Beyond Rubicon is an unscripted documentary-drama that focuses on the journey — the trials, tribulations, joys, defeats, and primal satisfaction of being a hunter on the quest to keep the hunt in hunting.

Beyond Rubicon follows the hunts in their entirety where thriving is a step above surviving.  Watch while the hunters navigate New Mexico’s untamed, but stunning landscape, as they chase some of the most elusive animals on the planet. Hard lessons, reflection, and story-telling will bring the brothers back to the hunt each week.

Filmed across New Mexico’s tree lined and jagged Rocky Mountain range, rolling plans, volcano carved valleys and desolate desert terrains, the region is still the untapped and unchanged Wild West. The state is home to Rocky Mountain Elk, Mule Deer, Whitetail and Coues Deer, bear, cougar, javelina, and more free-range big game animals. New Mexico also boasts free-ranging exotic species within its borders, including Persian Ibex, Barbary Sheep, and Oryx.

Beyond Rubicon’s dedicated and committed hunters are outdoorsmen who have decades of experience with free-range, fair-chase hunting.  And with experience comes the humble realization that wild animals have an uncanny ability to escape danger.  Add terrain, weather, and environmental factors and the challenge is evident.  These men believe in focusing more on the journey than the kill while keeping their primal instincts alive.
