The Sportsman Channel’s founder and chief Michael Cooley has long been involved with groups that donate excess meat from hunters to charity kitchens, so it’s not a surprise that The Sportsman Channel began CTAM Summit by feeding those less fortunate.

The Sunday, July 22, meal, which included plenty of MSO execs donning aprons, ran from 5-7 p.m. at Washington’s Central Union Mission, not far from the site of Summit. The meal’s main course of venison was donated by local hunters. NCTA, ACA, NAMIC Mid-Atlantic Chapter and NCTC endorsed the effort. The meal kicked off a series of similar efforts to feed the needy that The Sportsman Channel and Safari Club International Foundation’s Sportsmen Against Hunger will sponsor across the country. Also moving cross-country will be the 15-city SUV tour called The Hunt for the Next Sportsman (Aug. 23-Oct. 15), challenging locals to a series of outdoor challenges. Footage of that will be seen online and on TSC’s The Lodge.
