Hunting, shooting and fishing industry veterans – Bob Delfay, Steve Pennaz and Bill Miller have joined forces to launch Treasures and Traditions TV, an original TV series that celebrates America’s strong sporting heritage by discovering and appraising true pieces of outdoor Americana.
Longtime advocate for the outdoors and firearms industry leader, Bob Delfay, will host this unique series that will seek out valuable sporting art, decoys, antique firearms, vintage outboards and tackle, books and other outdoor collectibles to help hunters, shooters and fishermen answer the age-old question of “What is it worth?”
Set to debut on The Discovery Network’s Destination America channel in 2014, Treasures and Traditions TV will begin filming for its debut season by inviting the public to bring items for appraisal to the Cincinnati, Ohio, and Hartford, Connecticut, hunting and fishing Shows in early 2014.
“Without exaggeration, there are millions of decades-old tackle boxes and half-filled ammunition boxes in the closets, attics and cellars of veteran fishermen and hunters that are worth hundreds or even thousands of dollars,” Delfay said. “And there are firearms, artwork and decoys gathering dust that are worth hundreds of thousands. Treasures and Traditions TV will offer outdoor enthusiasts a free appraisal of their vintage items, including firearms, decoys, bows, arrows, knives artwork, you-name-it. We will share the most interesting items with the viewers of Treasures and Traditions TV.”
Delfay’s resume includes more than 40 years as a hunter and casual collector and a 33-year career at the National Shooting Sports Foundation (NSSF), including 16 years as CEO.
