Sitting here on a Saturday morning watching yet another big name whitetail hunter pass on a 140 class buck because he's not mature enough yet. He needs another year or two. You know the story,we've all seen these shows.
Now don't get me wrong, I'd love to be the guy saying"I think we could do better than this little 140 class buck."

The reality of the matter is most of use do not have vast acres of land to plant atler growing vegitation, put up a dozen stands and hunt on it. We hunt small patches of woods and public hunting land.

What I'd love to see is these big names and shows go to the same type of woods I and many others hunt. Lets just see how many 140's they'll pass on then. You just don't get very many big bucks when your average deers age is 2 1/2-3 1/2 years old.

Should they ever do a show in that enviroment I hope they keep the cameras rolling when another hunter comes along and decides to hunt 50 yards infront of them, and acts like he never seen them. Or when the neighbors kid rides up on his 4 wheeler and ask "have ya seen anythang." And my favorite. The hunter who comes up to you wanting to know if you have permission from the land owner when he himself does not.
Hey Bushy befor you ask. Yes, I get permission befor hunting private lands. And by the way did the farrier ever show.

Anyways: Whats the fine people of this site think about TV hunters?

Now why do I care if you have permission to hunt private land? I would assume you got permission. But don't ask to hunt my land. I have deer in abundance and horses...I worry about the horses.
I watch very little outdoor networks. Again it comes back to the fact that I'd rather participate then to watch some idiot pass on a big rack with some lame excuse that it needs a couple more years to mature. I'd rather shoot a forky for the better meat anyway...These TV and mag guys still can't hunt, successfully, Cascade and coastal mountain Blacktails of the far west...

This one is sorta like the question about gun magazines. Learn what you can and apply it when you can. I love watching the shows about hunting in Africa but there isn't a snowball's chance in hell that I'll ever get to do that. Besides, those sure are some pretty bucks on those programs!

I find deer hunting TV almost unbearable to watch anymore. I still do enjoy watching "Get Wild with Cindy" though.-tr

Some of the memorable TV moments of hunting for me.

Guys explaining how far into the backcountry they are while you can plainly see traffic on the highway, in the distance behind them.

Guys looking for their dead deer with the camera in front of them like they don't already know where they are going. "Look there is it !!!!"....well duh.

"Well golly, would ya look at that"

Whispering after the kill....like the dead deer gives a shxt.

The huge elk shot while standing up against an 8' fence in Utah. Who can forget how fun that must have been.

Hunting bears over bait with a rifle where the shots range somewhere between 15-25 ft.

Hiding in a plastic box on stilts on some game farm in Texas waiting for deer that have came to the same exact spot everyday at the same exact time since birth to eat. Huge challange with that. Does it seem odd they would be wearing camo for this...or is it just me.

Watching bogus hunts on TV rates right up there with watching paint dry, filing my teeth, putting my xxxx in the toaster.

MY all time favorites....Babe Wink getting busted for violating game laws while filming a deer hunt. One of many of Babes 'secrets' of hunting.

The ex-boxer dude who does Saturday morning hunts (he pushes those draw lock things) getting busted here in CO for using a draw lock during an elk hunt....they are not legal here but he failed to check that out.

Rule number one of TV hunting shows should be 'find out if we can do this legally' beforehand.

Rule two should be that "camo clothing" is way overated and until TV hunting few if any of us owned any. We did still kill game and our clothes didn't have to match some tree that doesn't even grow in this half of the country.

I thought I posted this story before, anyway here goes again and sorry if I repeat myself, but CRS ya know.

I was a member of a club years ago in NH. I was asked to join then found out, folks would kill to belong, so it was cool, but not nearly the ego trip folks thought, at least not for me. Anyway it was a hunt club that had a big club house down town and the state F&G directors belonged, along with the state politicians, including the Gov.

Years ago, about 35 years, American Sportsman came to NH "to hunt deer." You have never seen such a sham in your entire life. The club sponsored the hunt. The F&G officers were used to drive deer to the camera crew and "hunter." The F&G put up chain-link fences to funnel the deer to a clear area and the kicker was, they were on an island. Hunting on an island in NH is illegal to start with. The only thing they did not do was drive a stake in the ground and tie a leg. But that was a real 24 karat production, compared to the 2-bit deals you see today. No one got arrested cause the cops helped......

TV hunting is an illustration only as far as I am concerned.

Oh, at my age, I am a shooting house kinda hunter. I like the sound of rain on the roof, not on my collar. Very Happy
Ed

Cammo in the shootin house? Well, yes as a matter of fact I do..... nothing left to chance.

The cammo is primarily for lunch, when I stop by the up country cafe, they know I am hunting..... and they have a lunch special for hunters...... NW FL is kinda special it is still in FL but we call it LA..... Lower Alabama. Very Happy

Not a blind, a shooting house on stilts. Not real hard to see. Sorta like camo on a diesel PU.

Stopped by the Mossy Oak mall in MS couple of weeks ago, damn they have camo every thing, skivies, bras, etc. But I did find me a shadow grass set for bird hunting. Can't find shadow grass around here.
