Forward Thinkers

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.

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!

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.

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!
