SCI and Sporting Classics TV have teamed up on a new project to highlight the role hunting has played in shaping the outlook and attitudes of some of the most recognizable members of the hunting community. Throughout the series, some of Chris Dorsey’s most distinguished hunting partners discuss how important hunting is to them while sharing some of their favorite memories in the field.
Dorsey has helped launch more than 45 outdoor TV series in his career and has served as publisher for some of the most renowned hunting magazines in the outdoor space. An accomplished author, his writing has appeared in the Wall Street Journal, Newsweek, National Geographic, and Forbes.
He has also used his skills and connections to aid political campaigns for Gubernatorial, Presidential, and Congressional candidates, enabling him with opportunities to spend time outdoors with hunters holding some of our nation’s highest offices.
Few folks in the hunting community have had the chance to go afield with as many celebrities, athletes, politicians, and other big names – and now SCI and Sporting Classics TV’s will share those stories like never before through a brand new video series: Let’s Talk Hunting.
With election season in full swing, it seems appropriate to launch the series by talking hunting with an elected official who is as passionate of a bird hunter as there is the world – Senator John Thune.
Senator Thune has served his home state of South Dakota in Congress since 1997, starting in the House of Representatives before being elected to the Senate in 2004. He is legislatively active on a host of agriculture, forestry, conservation, and outdoor recreation issues.
In 2018, Senator Thune penned an article expressing just how important pheasant hunting is to himself, his family, and the entire state of South Dakota. Like many South Dakotans, Senator Thune considers the third Saturday in October an unofficial state holiday. “Like so many other hunters, I have it circled on my calendar each and every year,” wrote Thune. “I’m always eager to trade in my suit and tie for blaze orange and boots, and I’d take South Dakota’s fields, sloughs, and shelterbelts over Washington’s concrete any day of the week.”
So, Let’s Talk Hunting with Senator John Thune!
Tune in next week, as we Talk Hunting with Hollywood actors Powers Boothe and Gerald McRaney!
