HUNTING AND MEDIA PROFESSIONALS WORKING TOGETHER TO PRODUCE OUTDOOR JOURNALISM
Why BTB? We created Beyond the Blind as way of integrating outdoor media and information in a way we just couldn't find anywhere else. During call competition season I couldn't find information about locations, winners, or even times without searching multiple websites and facebook pages. I realized this didn't stop at calling competitions but applied to expos, contests, dog qualifying events, and other events.
Countless tv shows and groups exist but bringing you information that is live and on scene is our focus. By "going live" you get access to live events as they happen and on the scene of events you can't be at.
OWNER, EXECUTIVE PRODUCER
I wish I could say I spent my entire life film making or hunting but that is simply not the case. I grew up riding my mongoose all hours of the day and playing playstation all night. Sports was my first real passion and I spent much of my time consumed with them both watching and playing. My first experience hunting was chasing rabbits in SW Missouri as a young boy.
I didn't start waterfowl hunting until after ending my Naval service and moving back to Springfield Mo. I produced a few seasons of hunting television on local cable before focusing on internet based platforms. Using what I have learned the last 5 years filming, editing, and using social media platforms I founded BTB to replace the status quo of what outdoor news had become. Magazines and TV shows are the standard and more and more people are watching and reading less of each.
