The producers of the longest running wing shooting show The American BirdHunter have teamed up with the editors at GunDog Magazine to bring an exciting new television series called "Gun Dog TV". The series will focus on the hunter's devoted relationship with their bird dogs as we see them at work in the field. Hosted by bird hunting veterans Randy Lack and Bruce Horrell, Gun Dog TV brings the passion of bird hunting, both upland and waterfowl, to the forefront of outdoor TV. In addition to exciting bird hunts and stunning scenery in every episode, Outdoor Channel viewers get to meet the real stars of the show — the bird dogs that accompany Randy and Bruce on their hunts.

Gun Dog TV - Controversy - Netflix
In early October 2007, Chapman gained negative public attention after a private phone conversation between him and his son, Tucker, was leaked to the media. The conversation was about the relationship his son was having with an African-American girl. Chapman was heard to be angry and used the word “nigger” in the recording. Once the tape was made public, A&E announced it was suspending production of Chapman's TV series pending an investigation. On October 31, 2007, Chapman issued a public apology. But on November 2, 2007, A&E announced it was removing the show from their schedule “for the foreseeable future.” On December 21, 2007, Roy Innis, the chairman of the Congress of Racial Equality and a member of the National Rifle Association's governing board, and one of the first to petition the A&E network to have the show taken off the air, met with Alicia Colon of the New York Sun and Chapman. Later Innis said, “After meeting with him and his wife, Beth, and hearing his side of the story, we realized that the controversy had unjustly spiraled out of control without context. Duane has taken ownership of the damage of his words and has taken on the responsibility of being a racial healer for our country... I have been with this man several times and had extensive dialogues with him. I consider him and his wife good friends. Duane is a changed man and has a higher purpose. Popular television is a wasteland of meaningless titillation and degradation. The Dog's potential to take his celebrity and turn it into something redeeming for our culture and society is immense. It is for these reasons that we want his television show back on the air.” On February 19, 2008, A&E announced that Chapman's TV show would return to production.
