A WORD FROM THE HUNTING EXPERTS
UNIQUE & EDUCATIONAL
Focus Outdoors offers viewers unique and educational insights into the outdoor world via their emphasis on conservation efforts, the organizations that have been formed to benefit wildlife, and highlighting management programs that enhance our natural resources.
Focus Outdoors successfully strikes the elusive balance in outdoor communications of entertaining and educating at the same time, all the while portraying hunting in a way that we can all be proud of. Focus Outdoors are forward thinkers who realize we must successfully defend hunting in the long-term from an increasingly urban and anti-use society. These guys get it.
MOST ENJOYABLE EXPERIENCE
I want to express my appreciation of you and your production crew’s professionalism, thoroughness, and work ethic. I have fully enjoyed working with you and your staff. In fact, while as a professional wildlife biologist for over 30 years I have on numerous occasions had the opportunity to work with TV or video production crews. There have been few, if any, that I have enjoyed working with more than you. Thank you for a most enjoyable experience! Good hunting!
SPEAKS LOUDLY FOR CONSERVATION
Focus Outdoors speaks loudly for the conservation groups and the sportsman of today. What they say and believe go along with the mission of the Ruffed Grouse Society.
The Ruffed Grouse Society is honored to have been chosen as one of the series of outdoors shows Focus Outdoors will be airing this season. The “hands-on” approach to demonstrating what is meaningful in proper habitat, and what it takes to provide habitat is critical to assuring its abundant supply and the health of the forest. The Society applauds Focus Outdoors desire to promote responsible photo-journalism.
OUTDOOR AND HUNTING HERITAGE
Pheasants Forever appreciates Focus Outdoors’ coverage of important conservation issues effecting the future of our outdoor and hunting heritage. We also appreciate the highlighted focus on conservation organizations, like Pheasants Forever, that work hard every day to make a difference for wildlife.
ENERGY DEVELOPMENT AND WILDLIFE
I saw you on Focus Outdoors last night, hunting sharp-tails in NE earlier this fall. It was well done and I appreciated your comments about energy development and wildlife.
SPLENDID HUNTING AND FILMING
Thank you and the first rate crew from Focus Outdoors for an absolutely splendid hunting and filming experience last week. The professionalism of the entire team and the quality of the subsequent results made this a truly memorable experience. I and my colleagues at Delta Waterfowl appreciate the opportunity to discuss the twin messages of waterfowl conservation and the absolute necessity to protect our waterfowl hunting heritage. Outdoor productions such as Focus Outdoors are crucial in the dissemination of these important messages to a wide audience of hunters and non-hunters. Thanks again for the great experience and I look forward to working with you again.
Focus Outdoors gets it. Conservation is the key to the future of our outdoor and hunting heritage. Focus Outdoors has the exciting elements of the hunt, while incorporating the educational aspects of conservation and hunter ethics. This combination creates a well-rounded program that illustrates how the efforts of organizations like Pheasants Forever are benefiting soil, water, air, wildlife, landowners, and the hunting public.
FINE UPLAND BIRD HUNTING
Thank you for your good work and for the very professional and enjoyable experience of hunting together with you and your crew as we taped some fine upland bird hunting in Nebraska. This was a new experience for me, and the efficient and relaxed manner in which you handled this made it all the more pleasant. You have a great crew and we saw some terrific dogs working in an altogether great place. I know the conservation message will be carried effectively in the context of such a great hunt with fast friends. Looking forward to the next chance to spend time together in the field!
WELL WORTH IT
Well worth the money to train both my dogs! A+ training and affordable!
VERY KNOWLEDGEABLE TRAINER
Tom is very knowledgeable trainer. He did wonders with my stubborn, independent dog.
