Question: What do you get when you ask hundreds of bird hunters and gundog owners what they want in a TV show? Answer: Scott Linden’s TV series, Wingshooting USA!
Scott has created a TV show that authentically portrays the upland hunt, from exciting dog work to hunting action … hits and misses and the camaraderie of good friends in the field. Cross “Dog Whisperer” with “A River Runs Through It,” add shotguns and beautiful places and you’ve got the definitive show on the subject … by passionate participants, for them. Shot entirely in high definition, Wingshooting USA focuses on the FUN of this great sport and (finally!) honors the dogs that make it all possible. Spectacular locales, canine athletes doing their best, and a minimum of gab, plus tips to help you become a better hunter, shooter, and dog owner … the show is full of them.
You can also win prizes and trips while helping six great groups raise funds in Wingshooting USA’s exclusive initiative, “TruckVault Cares … for conservation, canines & kids” … all while enjoying the entertaining, engaging style unique to Scott’s shows.
