Voting has begun for Outdoor Channel’s annual Golden Moose Awards — the network’s way of recognizing the best hunting and fishing shows.
Outdoor Channel is encouraging viewers to visit its website to cast votes for their favorite shows, and so is Buckmasters founder and TV host Jackie Bushman.
“The Golden Moose Awards are like the Oscars of the hunting and fishing world, so they’re a big deal,” Bushman said. “What I really like is they give recognition to the people behind the scenes who do the real work of making the TV shows happen.”
“The videographers and production guys get pumped up when their work is recognized for excellence, but especially when the fans stand up and say, ‘Hey, great job, guys!’ ”

The winners of the 2010 Golden Moose Awards will be announced at the SHOT Show in January in Las Vegas. Many of your favorite production crews will be on hand in hopes of claiming an award.
“I’m real blessed to have one of the best video crews in the business,” Bushman said. “We might not have as many camera guys as some of the other shows, but I have six guys who get about 60 animals a year, and that’s just phenomenal.
They put in countless hours from the middle of August to the middle of May, and I’m real proud of them. A vote for The Jackie Bushman Show is a vote for these six gentleman. I would appreciate it, and I know they would, too!”
Bushman said that while he and the other Outdoor Channel show hosts get all the attention, the real work and vision come from behind the scenes.
I have the easiest part of the whole deal,” he said. “What you see on TV comes from the eyes, hard work and vision of the videographers and production guys. Their biggest problem is they don’t have better talent to work with — but I’m working on it!”
