CRCS Outdoors is a unique production as the entire show is filmed, produced and edited by students and teachers at a rural high school CRCS. Cuba-Rushford Central School (CRCS) is located in the forested foothills of upstate western New York. The school offers a fisheries and wildlife curriculum that focuses on natural resource conservation, biology and management of animals from the United States and from around the world. CRCS Outdoors is known for their deer and turkey research where students work along with biologists and technicians to capture, collar and track animals to follow their daily, weekly and seasonal movements.  In addition, the high school also offers trips annually to Alaska (13 years), New Zealand (14 years), South Africa, Pennsylvania, Florida and Texas to pursue anything wild. The show is filmed entirely in HD and follows the exploits of different students conducting research on animals, or on their many hunting and fishing trips exposing students to life beyond the schools concrete walls. The CRCS Outdoor’s motto is “making a difference one young hunter at a time.”
