As a kid I loved watching Michigan Outdoors with Mort Neff.

Mort and Howard Shelley would film the most astounding videos on hunting, fishing and almost every aspect of respecting the Michigan Outdoors.

My Dad, brothers and I never missed a Thursday night episode of Mort and his Michigan Outdoors TV Show.

Mort was a graduate of The University of Michigan in 1927. (Yearbook page Image below).
