NASHVILLE, Tenn.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--It’s no secret that most outdoorsmen would rather be hunting or fishing than spending 8+ hours a day at work. In recognition of how life’s demands often keep outdoorsmen from their hobbies, Limit Out Productions (part of Limit Out, LLC) today announces the introduction of Rather-Be-Hunting Guy™, an outdoors-themed comic character who spends too much time at work and not enough time hunting.
“Dale Dunnerway, also known as Rather-Be-Hunting Guy™, is a great voice for all of us who don’t have enough time for our hobbies. Initial consumer feedback tells us that a lot of adult hunters will relate to Dale, which is why we are very excited about the potential for a full range of products featuring this character,” said a company official.
