In October, Couture began experiencing chest pains after training at a Los Angeles gym. Luckily, he was just blocks away from a hospital and he walked himself to the emergency room.
"I've been that guy that won every sprint, that was the example coaches pointed out for work ethic and the ability to outwork my opponents. And now I've had a heart attack," the retired competitive mixed martial artist and U.S. Army veteran recalled.
Doctors would later tell him that he would have died if he had arrived 30 or 40 minutes later.
"Everything that happens to you makes you stronger," said Couture in the Fox Nation show. "You have to find the perspective and the frame around those situations to get through them."
"On August 6th, 2010, my life changed forever when an IED blast in Afghanistan took both of my legs and damaged my arms, wrists and hands," said Jones. "Thanks to a lot of hard work and a little humor, I'm still able to live a full life."
"Today I walk where I can and even a few places I probably shouldn't," he said in this new Fox Nation series, during which the lifelong hunting and fishing enthusiast travels around the country to celebrate the outdoors lifestyle and connect with Americans who share his passion.
Couture and Jones are longtime friends who have hunted together in the past, but this trip to the North Platte River in northwest Nebraska would be their first waterfowl hunt together.
Jones wanted to harvest his first Drake Mallard, the quintessential trophy for hunters of North American waterfowl.
