A new television series launched this summer with sponsorship from Dallas Safari Club (DSC), “Jim Shockey’s UNCHARTED” reached the most viewers of any show on Outdoor Channel.
DSC Executive Director Ben Carter offered congratulations to the UNCHARTED team.
“This series is breaking new ground in production as well as storytelling. It portrays hunting as part of larger adventures, and within the context of modern life as well as primitive cultures,” said Carter. “I’m even hearing from people who aren’t avid hunters but who enjoy this show nonetheless, and it’s exciting to be affiliated with a series enjoying that kind of broad appeal.”
DSC uses its sponsorship to promote hunters’ contributions to conservation, education and advocacy. Over the past five years, DSC has granted more than $4.5 million for these purposes.
According to Rentrak TV Essentials, “Jim Shockey’s UNCHARTED” was the top TV show on Outdoor Channel for 10 weeks ending Sept. 19 in gross unduplicated households, reaching the most viewers of any show on the leading outdoor lifestyle entertainment network.
Outdoor Channel is received by nearly 40 million U.S. households – the largest outdoor TV footprint in the country – and is available in more than 50 countries internationally.
