Wilton, CT – November 20, 2018. Media Lodge, the leading full-service outdoors content production studio and digital distribution platform, is proud to announce the launch of new Original Hunting Video Series Fieldcraft: Destination Africa, now streaming on GetZone.com and across the GunUp Digital Network, and shared with 4 million social media followers and 3+ million email subscribers.
This 5-episode series explores how the hunt of a lifetime CAN be within reach for the average hunter. Filmed in Kimberly, South Africa, Fieldcraft: Destination Africa breaks down the planning, preparation and thrill of the hunt while also showing that hunting is essential to the livelihood of many African villages.
Millions of wild animals live on private land and exist solely due to dollars that hunters contribute to the economy. Through the stories of these villagers, Fieldcraft: Destination Africa will illustrate that without hunters there would be no wild game in South Africa.
Our hunters will head into the Plains with the Barrett Fieldcraft, the company’s line of lightweight rifles designed to provide maximum accuracy in a package optimized for each specific caliber. Introduced in 2016, the Fieldcraft is a representation of the company’s philosophy to build the highest performance rifles for every application. Billed as the ultimate hunting rifle, each Fieldcraft is designed to be as light as possible for its specific caliber to allow the rifle to be carried further and longer in the field. It features a carbon fiber and Kevlar stock design with a high strength-to-weight ratio and stiff construction to properly support the action and barrel, while remaining comfortable to shoot even with heavy recoiling calibers.

“We are thrilled to partner with such an esteemed company as Barrett in their first video series sponsorship and honored to equip our hunters with the company’s excellent first foray into hunting rifles,” said Christen Everly, Vice President of Sales. Fieldcraft: Destination Africa is rooted in conservationism and mirrors both companies’ commitment to support the principles and ethics that bind the community of hunters we serve.”
