In the middle of New York City, in the back of one crazy truck, pro wrestling icon Shawn Michaels promised me he could show me the newest Cabela's hunting video games in one take. He did and even fielded my questions about why he hunts with grace, all in a single video you can see here.

Many Americans hunt, but others are appalled by it. I left it to Michaels, at 10:45 of this video, to explain why he likes hunting. He says it balances a career spent in front of crowds; it gets him to nature; sure, he likes shooting guns; and that his family lives 95% off of wild game.

If hunting isn't your thing, then maybe crazy trucks are. We start the video with a tour of the Cabela's truck that has a crashed plane inside it. Pretty cool.

The games in the video are the third-person shooter Cabela's Survival: Shadows of Katmai and Cabela's Big Game Hunter 2012, both of which will be out for Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and Wii this fall. Shawn Michaels' hunting show, MacMillan River Adventures, airs on the Outdoor Channel.
