Pursuit Channel Goes On The Offensive, After Outdoor Sportsman Group Gives In

Glendale, AL – -(Ammoland.com)- The global movement sworn to abolish hunting, fishing and shooting recently struck a defining blow against outdoorsmen and women worldwide, illustrating increased power to impose anti-science, anti-conservative agendas on the stewards of modern wildlife management and conservation – namely, the traditional outdoor family.

The catalyst in this bloodletting by anti-hunting forces was Philippa King, CEO of the United Kingdom-based League Against Cruel Sports. King’s assault – Bambi-effect hate speech and lies – against the Outdoor Sportsman Group (OSG), America’s largest consortium of outdoor media, was disseminated through internet messaging, an electronic petition and on-air vitriol by British television personalities and politicos, whipping up a comparatively small mob of English soccer fans.

OSG, the parent of Outdoor Channel and Sportsman Channel, with ownership levels in both American and European professional sports franchises, responded by apologetically removing dangerous-game hunting content from the UK version of its My Outdoor TV (MOTV), a new subscription-based internet streaming platform.

“OSG’s debacle becomes the third or fourth white-flag submission since 2012 to anti-hunting/anti-firearm factions by major American companies trading in the traditional-outdoor space,” said Rusty Faulk, CEO of the Pursuit Channel.

He continued: “Ultimately, for those who should be in the know, you’re either supporting the wise-use of our natural resources, a model maintained by ultra-passionate hunters, fishers, shooters and accredited wildlife scholars – or you’re against us. Missteps, ostensibly by well-meaning groups within our own ranks – oftentimes by uncommitted corporate heads who lack the education and the will to do right by wildlife and outdoor enthusiasts – increasingly endangers our outdoor heritage, the wildlife we’re sworn to perpetuate and our constitutional right to bear arms.”

OSG’s cowardice has sparked no small amount of internal outrage, including this response from Ted Nugent, Outdoor Channel’s most prominent spokesperson:

The strike against OSG and outdoor enthusiasts was fueled by change.org, an online petition aggregator and far-left propaganda machine funded in large part by George Soros, the wacky multi-billionaire perhaps best known in American outdoor circles as the world’s most dangerous threat to civilian firearms ownership.

Current social media campaigns from change.org include petitions to “Stop Arby’s” from serving chicken sandwiches and “Save the Yellowstone Grizzly.” The latter includes an impassioned endorsement from big-game sport fisherman Yvon Chouinard, the billionaire founder of the Patagonia clothing brand, who wants to halt federal and state wildlife authorities from managing sustainable grizzly bear populations across the American West.

“As a high-value target for these anti hooligans, Pursuit Channel has begun dedicating additional resources to take the fight to them, rather than counterpunching against this great scourge,” Faulk continued. “Our first step is redoubling our support for the likes of Safari Club International and the National Rifle Association, the free world’s ultimate bastion against the antis for more than a century.”

“We are similarly committed to all others who value the importance of incorruptible outdoor media, those independents and groups who are increasingly concerned about the impact of following a perceived flagship that’s so recklessly off course.”

Pursuit Channel, www.pursuitchannel.com, is presently available in more than 42 million U.S. television households and millions more via HD linear and OTT feeds. Pursuit is the only audited outdoors television network viewable to all DIRECTV HD (604 PRST), AT&T HD and DISH Network (393 PRST) subscribers, and it is available to all Fios by Verizon and Centurylink Prism subscribers.

MOOSE Media, www.moosemedia.com, represents producer time-buy sales, network advertising schedules and many marketing functions for the network.

    That’s exactly what the anti-hunting groups would like to see as when the money goes away the channel and content goes with it. We need to fight the same way proactively with petitions signed by the English subscribers who are effected and supported by other Euro and American groups. Get 5 times the signatures supporting the content and it will be pretty hard for them not to put the content back up.

    Their game is not about what THEY have available to watch in their leisure time, Nope. It is this sick bent to micromangage what everyone else is allowed to watch. They are all sich nannies at heart, megalomaniacal control freaks. Would be gods.

    Well, when their money or health runs out, how pwerful will they be? No more than you and I. Even less so, because they will not have any peace at that point.. the one point at which they will desparately need it but cannot obtain it.
