WILDCraft Entertainment Announces the Cast for Season One – WILDCraft: South Africa

Columbia, SC November 28, 2018 – WILDCraft Entertainment announces the cast for Season One – WILDCraft: South Africa; a new video series that will debut on Amazon Prime Video in September 2019. The series will take the viewer along for the journey of a lifetime with a group of hunters where the hunt is only part of the story. The cast will include Joe Arterburn – Petersen’s Hunting freelancer, Adam Heggenstaller – Executive Editor American Hunter, Richard Mann – Field & Stream contributor and freelancer, and renowned photographer Alfredo Rico.

The team will hunt from a remote tent camp with Fort Richmond Safaris for free-range kudu and other species. At the end of each day they’ll share their experiences, successes, and failures, around the campfire. This production is the first to effectively meld print and web editorial with a full-length video series about hunting. The gear and tools of sponsoring manufacturers will be highlighted and seamlessly blended into all facets of the production. Lace up your boots, and join the adventure with WILDCraft.

WILDCraft Entertainment has created sponsorship packages that go beyond traditional product placement. Sponsors will receive social media marketing videos and sponsor’s products will be placed in the hands of, and field-tested by, top hunting editors in the industry. SIG Sauer has signed on as title sponsor and Mossberg will be sponsoring the firearms category. Surefire, SKB Cases, and Versacarry have also come on board as Season One sponsors.
