‘Elk Chronicles’ to Premiere in July on Outdoor Channel

MISSOULA, Mont.—A new television show, Elk Chronicles, from the Rocky Mountain Elk Foundation is set to premiere July 3 at 8:30 p.m. Eastern on Outdoor Channel.

Elk Chronicles will feature outdoor adventures including hunting, recreation, wildlife and conservation in North America. The show will carry the Elk Foundation brand and message into 31 million homes three times a week: Thursdays at 8:30 p.m. and 11:30 p.m. and Tuesdays at 3:30 p.m. Eastern.

“Bugling bulls, spectacular landscapes, packhorses and wall tents. It’s the stuff that every hunter dreams about and we’re pleased to bring it to Outdoor Channel viewers,” said David Allen, president and CEO of the Elk Foundation. “We hope Elk Chronicles conveys both the excitement of the hunt as well as the urgent need to conserve elk habitat.”

Founded in 1984, the nonprofit Elk Foundation has led a massive conservation movement that has helped conserve or enhance over 5.2 million acres, a land area larger than Connecticut, Delaware and District of Columbia combined. More than 500,000 acres previously closed to public access are now open for hunting, fishing and other recreation. 

“We’re thrilled to partner with the Rocky Mountain Elk Foundation,” said Tom Hornish, chief operating officer for Outdoor Channel, America’s Leader in Outdoor TV. “Elk Chronicles is a special show, capturing the excitement of hunting and showcasing best practices in conservation. Adding Elk Chronicles to our programming lineup is just another part of Outdoor Channel’s commitment to conservation, our outdoor heritage and the highest caliber programming in the outdoor genre.”
