Deer Hunters Wanted.  

Jul 25, 2015

Merrill Sport has been in the television industry for over 30 years, specifically outdoor television. Once an owner of Pursuit Channel, Merrill has moved on to new adventure as President of the Hunt Channel. The model of the Hunt Channel is different than the other 3 players, the Outdoor Channel, the Sportsman Channel, and the Pursuit Channel, but Merrill believes he has the best value for anyone looking to get into outdoor television (aka Outdoor Hollywood). 

Merrill tells us all about the industry- the good, the bad, and the ugly, how it all works, how the channels interact, and where he's betting his money on the future of the outdoor television world.
