About Team MDE

Sitting on the tailgate of a truck back in 2013, Britton White and John Miller came up with the idea of The Mason-Dixon Experiment. Schedule complications and limited availability made it difficult for anything to be accomplished. Nothing transpired, but the thought still lingered in Britton's head over the next couple years. Fast forward to February of 2015 where the idea came to back to life. Enter Eric Umstead, an IT specialist and friend of Britton's, who designed the first Team MDE logo and also wanted to be a part of the journey. From that point on something special happened. Sponsors were acquired, a Pro Staff was formed, video was shot and a TV show was produced. Season One was only 5 episodes, but that was just the beginning of the journey. Team MDE knows that without God nothing they do would be possible. Through sharing their experiences in the outdoors and their drive to provide content to the masses, they hope to generate excitement about hunting, fishing and being outdoors. Their hope to reach every outdoorsman and woman of all ages with relevant information and entertainment. Thank you for your support of Team MDE.
