Hey everyone, It has been quite a ride this past 7 months. We have been prepping for a TV show on National Geographic Channel. They found us on Youtube which you guys had a big part in that. Whenever I would post a video on what I do, LJs would watch and the view counts would sore. Thanks you LJs that our vidoes have around 20,000 views of the burl hunter a month. This showed Half yard productions viability for the show and then National Geographic picked the show up.

Living large off the land is the production where there is going to be 3 companies that have unique jobs that live off the land, Oregon Burls being one of them. So stay tuned to my post and I will keep you guys updated on the progress of the show. The premier is set for January of this coming year and they will be shooting for the show this August-September.

thanks again for all your support and God bless
The Burl Hunter

WOOOHOOO! That is so FANTASTIC! I love watching those type of shows that show hardworking people doing their thing! I will be first in line to watch!

It sure beats the dysfunctional ones that get paid for their antics while moaning and waiting for handouts.

Okay, I already have a correction. Just got the contract and the show will be called Dirty Money. Meaning that I have a dirty job that I make money with. LOL
