Moore explores God’s Outdoors

ORANGE — October marks 20 years of Chester Moore’s career in the outdoors business and he is celebrating it in unique way. He is going on a new adventure.

“If anyone really knows anything about me, they know I love the outdoors but I love the Lord even more. I have been blessed to find a unique way to bring both of those passions together,” Moore said.

On Monday, Oct. 1, he debuts a new WebTV series “God’s Outdoors with Chester Moore” at Godsoutdoors.com.

It is a unique journey into wild lands with wild creatures but with a unique focus.

“I gave my life to Christ when I was nine years old at Cove Baptist Church at Vacation Bible School but like many I walked away from it over the years. Nine years ago I rededicated my life to Him and the first thing that started standing out to me was the Creation,” Moore said.

“I would dig deep into scripture and see so much about the Creation there and then I would go be some place like in the Sierra Nevada Mountains in California or find myself eye to eye with a manatee in the Crystal River in Florida and realize the Creation continually builds my faith.”

The first season of the series will be divided into seven super fast-paced, informative episodes beginning with a special on wolves.

“The first episode is special because my first article ever published was on wolves and looking back I realized the Lord used wolves over the years to lure me into the career. The story is told on the episode and you get to see me interact with several wolves. It was awesome to film,” Moore said.

Over the last few months, he has filmed and interacted with everything from cougars to king cobras, the latter which had a huge impact on him.
