Our program contains diverse outdoor television segments in which we film and showcase a variety of settings and situations. We believe the outdoors makes our society better. The message we have to our viewers is twofold. Hunting and fishing is a rich heritage that can enrich the life of any man or woman. Time spent in the field or on the water cleanses the senses and soul. You don’t have to experience the horror and dangers of war to appreciate what the outdoors can offer us as individuals. Our hope with this programming however is not just to leave you with an appreciation for what the outdoors can do for people; we also want to give you a glimpse to the sacrifice, bravery and commitment of our American Heroes.
