CHEYENNE - Season One of the Wyoming Game and Fish Department’s groundbreaking TV show, Wyoming’s Call of the Wild, is now available online. To see all 13 episodes, go to the WGFD website at wgfd.wyo.gov, click on multimedia, then on WGFD TV.
The show features kids and their families on hunting and fishing adventures in Wyoming. It is one of the department’s initiatives to get more people into the outdoors.
“Hunters and anglers are our most ardent conservationists,” said WGFD Public Information Officer Eric Keszler. “And hunters and anglers provide the vast majority of funding for wildlife management and conservation. But nationally we’re seeing a decline in the number of people taking part in these outdoor traditions. Wyoming’s Call of the Wild is just one of the ways we’re working to get more people off of the couch and into the outdoors. Now, we’re excited that these shows will be available to anyone, anywhere in the world at no cost.”
The department is currently filming the second season of Wyoming’s Call of the Wild, which will begin airing nationally on the Sportsman Channel in 2013.
