We give our viewers our experience. So many hunting shows are just bang, bang, bang and it’s over.
His life focuses on hunting, family and faith.
Steve Lewis produces the new hunting TV show, “Buck Obsession.” The 13-episode season premiered Sunday, Oct. 5, and will run until late December on Dish Network channel 266 only.
The show’s inspiration comes from his lifelong passion for hunting and the outdoors.
“We give our viewers our experience. So many hunting shows are just bang, bang, bang and it’s over,” Mr. Lewis said.
“Buck Obsession” includes a variety of techniques for hunting small and big game with bows and firearms. The show also focuses on teaching children how to hunt, the importance of practicing good hunting ethics and herd management.
“We want to provide a tradition for our kids and bring them up in the outdoors,” he said.
“Buck Obsession” also supports wounded veterans and terminally ill children, regularly featured on the show.
A team of 14 volunteer hunters from Virginia, Pennsylvania, North Carolina and Ohio submit video for the reality show.
Mr. Lewis and his co-producer, Shane Baker from Louisa, spend nights and weekends selecting and editing the video. Their title sponsor, Deltana Outfitters funds most of the show, but Mr. Lewis has pumped thousands of his own dollars into the production.
“Buck Obsession” airs at 6:30 p.m. Sunday.
Producer of “Buck Obsession,” managing 14 contributors, editing video, conducting interviews and managing social media pages and website. Has worked 13 years in local law enforcement.

We all have kids. We want to provide a tradition for our kids and bring them up in the outdoors. We are in God’s creation, enjoying it. We want to give our viewers our experience.
