NRA TV to Feature Award Winning Hunting Show “Under Wild Skies”

Program available through NRA App, Roku, Apple TV and on any mobile device

FAIRFAX, Va. – “Under Wild Skies,” the popular award-winning hunting show is now available as featured content of NRA TV, the National Rifle Association of America announced.

Now in its 23rd season, “Under Wild Skies” airs weekly on the Outdoor Channel, showcasing the best big game and bird hunting found worldwide.  On the show, renowned hunter, Tony Makris, has hosted sports figures, politicians and celebrities on hunts and safaris around the globe.

“For two decades, ‘Under Wild Skies’ has taken American sportsmen and women from Africa to Europe to remote American destinations,” said Wayne LaPierre, NRA Executive Vice President and CEO.  “I know NRA members will enjoy watching episodes of the show through NRA TV.”

The past six seasons of “Under Wild Skies,” including 67 episodes are now currently available on NRA TV.  The 2016 season will be added once all of its episodes have aired on the Outdoor Channel.

“As a Benefactor Member and as a Founders Club Member of the NRA Hunters Leadership Forum, I’m grateful for the enduring support the NRA has shown for the show,” Makris said.  “As a strong advocate for our Second Amendment freedom, I’m proud to exercise my rights and enjoy my freedom using some of history’s finest firearms – and the best modern guns -- to hunt in some of the world’s most spectacular settings.”

LaPierre said the addition of “Under Wild Skies” is an important step in NRA efforts to provide robust, far-reaching content for NRA members and all Americans who value their constitutional freedom.

“NRA TV has become the home for every American man and woman to come together and enjoy all aspects of their Second Amendment freedom, hunting heritage, and the shooting sports,” LaPierre said.
