I know this may be asking a ton as ESPN's top aspects pertain to much more than the outdoors, but my idea or questions (forgive me if I had missed something as I have not done my homework 100%) how hard would it be or even possible to channel ESPN outdoors related topics and media content?
Now I will finish my homework and see if I missed something. LOL
Thanks & Regards,

Which outdoor content would you like to see? We're always looking to add to our API offering.

First, I am very sorry it has taken me so long to respond. Second, Thank You for responding sir.
Right now, any aspect, topic or avenue involving the Outdoors would be great. Narrowing it down, I am looking for fishing first, hunting second and general outdoors topics and subjects third. I have uses and possibilities for all areas though, but breaking them down at least in this fashion would be a perfect start. I am not sure what you guys have access/abilities to/with on your end. If you are limited, a dedicated fishing source with all species you have have content access would be just fine.
If breaking a fishing category down further was possible:
I assume the one species which could hold its own would entail bass, which is fine. My target market hovers over the Midwest and anything, species, involving fishing, the numbers hold strong and steady when the content is delivered in a new way. Bass is still a major player within our market but not as it is on a national level. Species such as walleye, catfish to panfish then musky almost draw equal weight. We also offer a stronghold on the Great Lakes and Salmon and trout always holds its own. This time of year (Fishing Openers, hot bites, etc..) walleye is huge, but honestly if the bite is slow or weather is poor around the Midwest, all it takes is someone picking up a large musky or even a flathead catfish and the tables, attention and interests can turn.
I am involved with one of the largest fishing related websites within the Midwest and on many levels, such as visits/registrations, clicks and uniques, it’s one of the largest fishing related communities on the web. We intend (under development and very close to deployment) to take this even further and test new waters with a sub application (sister to the master so to speak) which is the first of its kind in our market. The ability to integrate ESPN outdoors within our project via API would be met with its own set possibilities, let alone the ones we are currently exploring.
Amazingly or maybe not, we do have a very active and heavy trafficked Pro and College sports area and following. I was planning on using the available content and actually the reason I am here right now. I just know that even when it would come to something under heard of involving even the NFL , this wouldn't even cover a shadow to what outdoors and outdoors sports could bring from our end. It's been a toss up if we should include ESPN right now only offering College and Pro Sports content. Gut feeling tells us that it would just not go over like we would want and sadly with Midwestern mentality, this wold possibly hinder even a second launch of ESPN down the road featuring outdoors. Basically we would loose the "impact" factor. Waiting until ESPN offered outdoors related content seems to be a better fit but during the mean time, keeping an eye out and carving a place to properly feature in the best possible light.
In closing, any outdoors related content would be great. We are trying to finish our project by early May so we can be ready for late May and the fishing Openers when we can see 5,000+ physical humans on our website throughout any given day weeks prior and after the fishing openers.
We also offer a sizable (primarily fishing related) video upload and viewing center which offers many video produced by local fishing guides which has reviled some local creative work and videoing outdoors adventures. If interest was their and some content gaps needed filling, we may have some pretty decent filler, but I assume ESPN has plenty to go round. Just not sure how much to start breaking down into sub species and then regions. WHICH, I could use but certainly down the road.
Thank again and I look forward to hearing more.
