DENVER –-(Ammoland.com)- Outdoor Sportsman Group, the largest media aggregator of outdoor lifestyle programming devoted to bringing the best in content and entertainment to America's 80-million+ outdoor enthusiasts, and premier production company Flying Dragon Ltd are proud to announce a one-year contract renewal.
“We could not be any happier,” President of Flying Dragon Ltd. Michael Bane said. “OSG has given us a platform to create some of the best outdoor programming on television, and we look forward to raising that bar in 2018.”
Michael Bane and Flying Dragon Ltd have been responsible for some of the most iconic programming on Outdoor Channel, including Shooting Gallery, The Best Defense, Gun Stories with Joe Mantegna and Shootout Lane, in addition to Internet projects like SGO (Shooting Gallery Online) and the weekly DOWN RANGE Radio podcast.
Gun Stories with Joe Mantegna has been consistent one of the top shows on Outdoor Channel since it’s inception. Shooting Gallery, now in its 18th season, is the longest running and most successful firearms show ever.
Last year The Best Defense won an Outdoor Sportsman Award from OSG for the best general interest show of the year with it’s TBD: Mass Casualty Event. In addition, TBD scored several “saves” last year — people who credit their survival with lessons learned on The Best Defense.
