Dorsey and Friends Hunt Marsh Hens at Brays Island

Sporting Classics with Chris Dorsey celebrates a classic Lowcountry hunt

Castle Rock, Colorado--Dorsey Pictures announces that this week’s episode of Sporting Classics with Chris Dorsey - the most watched outdoor TV program in the world – celebrates a classic Lowcountry hunt as Dorsey invites Negrini Cases’ Steve Lamboy and family to hunt marsh hens at Dorsey’s home in Brays Island, South Carolina. While many modern sportsmen are not familiar with hunting railbirds and marsh hens, it is one of the oldest sporting pursuits in North America. The episode offers a fin, fur and feather sampler in a field to table showcase of all that coastal Carolina has to offer

Umarex Airguns also takes center stage as Dorsey hunts whitetail with the .50 caliber Umarex Hammer from a Muddy blind over a small food plot. Lewis and Clark famously used an airgun to harvest over 1,000 animals on their journey, and now Umarex has taken the classic concept into the 21st century.

Winchester’s new 6.8 Western Cartridge undergoes a successful field test on feral hogs in the South Carolina Lowcountry, as Dorsey and company help eradicate the invasive pest while wearing an ear-to-ear grin.

Finally, no visit to Brays Island is complete without an afternoon of kicking up quail as Dorsey and friends work with the finest hunting dogs in North America. Chris is joined by 4-star General Walt Boomer, Walther Arms’ Cody Osborn and Emmy-winning actor Gerald McRaney.
