Saint Paul, Minn. – January 20, 2009 – Pheasants Forever Television, a production of Ron Schara Productions which airs on Outdoor Channel, was honored with the award for Best Bird Hunting Footage at Outdoor Channel's 9th Annual Golden Moose Awards this past Saturday evening at the Hard Rock Live/Café in Orlando. Pheasants Forever shared the award along with Benelli's American Birdhunter.
The Golden Moose Awards were created to recognize and honor producers of the best outdoor programming appearing on Outdoor Channel during the previous year. The entire list of winners can be seen here. Pheasants Forever Television, entering into its fifth season, is a successful weekly television show hosted by Ron Schara for fans of the pheasant, pheasant hunting and conservation. The half-hour weekly program is a variety show featuring the pheasant as the star. The series highlights the national Pheasants Forever organization, its members, its habitat projects and its hunting adventures wherever ringnecks fly.
"Bringing the story of Pheasants Forever and the joy of pheasant hunting to the viewers of the Outdoor Channel has always been a rewarding task," Schara said, "Now, it's made more special by receiving a Golden Moose Award. Makes me grateful that I carry pheasants in my game bag and not moose."
"Ringneck heaven is a birdy field AND a Golden Moose Award to boot!" said Bill Sherck, Sr. Producer of the show, "We really appreciate the support from viewers and the folks at Outdoor Channel. Pheasants Forever Television's first Golden Moose Award; Hopefully not the last! We can't wait to bring you a new season of great upland conservation stories and characters in 2009!"
"We tip our hunting hats to the crew at Ron Schara Productions," said Howard Vincent, Pheasants Forever's President & Chief Executive Officer, "They have the unique ability to go beyond the hunt and to tell the entire story, and that's really what we wanted Pheasants Forever Television to be about – the incredible habitat, conservation, and hunting stories from Pheasants Forever members all across the country."
