“Having Duck Unlimited select us last year to produce its television component was a tremendous honor,” said Dennis Presley, vice president of MOOSE Media of West Point, MS. “The result is remarkable, and I know viewers will agree that the hosts, the guests and the DUTV production team have created a really superior new package.”
“DUTV is very fortunate to have the word-class scientific resources and the inscrutable volunteer spirit of Ducks Unlimited as the wind at our back,” said Greg Tinsley, director of production services for MOOSE, adding: “Our colleagues inside DU, to include Tom Fulgham, James Powell and Eric Keszler, are communication specialists and keen waterfowl hunters, which ensures the show’s authenticity and timeliness. ”
“When you combine a best-in-class on-air ensemble with magnificent locales and the stirring sights of waterfowl – and you get videographers Brett Jackson, Austin Brown and Richie Davenport to shoot it – you can’t help but create exceptional outdoors television, the level of Saturday night primetime excellence that’s required to make TV trays at duck camps the hot commodity.”
