Marty Fischer, host of “If It Flies TV” on the Pursuit Channel will join the 2018 Classic. In Marty’s words; “this outdoor series is a bit different from most hunting shows. It is more about the wingshooting lifestyle than it is about how many birds are bagged. Don’t get me wrong, the hunting is very important, but we focus on other things like people and their culture, great dogs, fine guns, lodging and meals as well as providing hunting/shooting tips in-show.”

By Hank Shaw For several years after I began hunting, I recoiled at the idea of hanging game birds. The idea of hanging shot pheasants or partridges undrawn and in the feathers for days and days just did not seem terribly hygienic or sane to me.
