The Way It Was TV follows hunters Sid McCullin, Lynn Beaty, Gevan Spinney and Hank Parker as they share their hunting knowledge with the next generation of outdoors enthusiasts. The vision for The Way It Was TV is to show others the way things were when they were learning about the outdoors, and to positively impact a society that is filled with instant gratification and technology. The Way It Was demonstrates that a strong foundation of faith, family, and outdoor traditions can still impact a person’s life for the better, just like it did when they were growing up.
