I cannot stand when im watching a show where somebody makes a bad shot, sometimes awful. Whether it be a gut shot or right in the hind quarters... Then they look at the camera and say " I hit him just a LIL farther back than I wanted" Its plain as day you made a bad shot, Just own up to it!
Sorry had to rant about this

I've got mixed feelings about hunting shows.Lots of trying to sell stuff you never need and the general silliness of some of the host.

I saw one where he shot a deer at 105 YARDS and the arrow hit the hind quarters and the buck didn't run far... must have been an artery shot... dang lucky and he should not have taken that shot ever.

Jaw dropped and just shook my head at one where the "hunters" sat in their ground blind 50yds from the feeder watching deer with numbered ear tags.

big cut field in Kansas, the rest of the show was cool because the deer were routing hard and chasing does all over the place.

A spoof show would be great

Spine shots with a Bow frequently do not kill the animal. The animal is paralyzed and requires a kill shot. Srictly an opinion, but in both instances not the ideal way to kill an animal. A gun shot to the spine normally causes sufficient bleeding by the time you get to the animal it has bled out and died.

I do not like spine shots because the animal suffers and bawls until it is put out of its misery. Backstraps are also IMO the best meat.

And by the way, I hate hunting shows all together.

I've done a good bit of filming, mainly for personal use, youtube, etc., and I'll tell you this - it aint as easy as it looks, especially if you are trying to film yourself. As a matter of fact, it's very, very difficult.

As far as bad shots go, sometimes those are obvious and the guy on TV would be better suited to just admitting that he made a bad shot. Other times, you can see the hit on TV much better than the hunter did when he made the actual shot (trust me, it's true). And unlike hollywood, they only get one take on a kill shot, whatever happens, happens. Sometimes things just go wrong, but it is what it is.

And the commercials and "selling stuff"? Well, they do have to pay the bills. Call up the Outdoor Channel and ask what a 30 minute time slot costs. How about $5K-$10K a week? Then, you have production costs, editing, expenses, etc. After everything is said and done, it can go well over $500K for a 26 week season. And keep in mind, that a lot of these shows and the overall competition between shows and within the hunting industry is what brings a lot of new ideas and products to market.

The hunting industry is tough. Some guys make it look easy, some have unlimited resources and others are just getting by and having some fun. I'd cut em a little slack and if you don't like something in particular, shoot em an email or post on their Facebook page. And of course, you can always just turn the channel.

I film too, and I never once said it was easy... I simply said if its obvious that you made a bad shot, you should own up to it, not lie about it to make yourself look good.

I have been in front of the camera and I have been behind the camera. I have been involcved in the production and editing and marketing.

There is no excuse for some of the things I have seen and heard. You know when you made a bad shot. If you don't, you have no business in the business. A spine shot is just that. Why call it anything else. In 99% of the cases, it is a pure accident. Why not admit it?

Most outdoor television today is just plain deplorable and disgusting. I fully understand the costs and the need for commercials. I have no objection to that. In some cases, that is the best of the show.

It's possible that the cost of these shows is actually their own worst enemy. Despite the difficulty involved and the cost...I'd rather watch a hunting or fishing show on PBS than any of the commercialized shows nowadays. It seems to me all of the outdoor channel type shows spend more time trying to out do the others that they have lost their own identity...surely, they didn't start off hunting to end up being so shallow and fake...

Michigan Out of Doors, Buck LaVasseur from the Upper Peninsula,etc...all free, all PBS and all good..Mort Neff brought character and poise, Howard Shelly and so many more brought new products in a folksy hunting type manner...I may just be an old fart who enjoys this but the integrity of the shows was intact...Even Fred Trost pulled no punches...It was quaint, it was deer campish, it was tradition...

I know. I hate it when you see them bow hunting and the arrow goes write through the gut and they start giving fives and celebrating.
I never celebrate until I find the deer or if im gun hunting I see it drop.

Big industry with a lot of different pay checks going out with the other related companies. It's called "free enterprize", if you don't like the shows, then don't watch them. Evidently, many people across the country like them or they would have already been taken off the air.

THAT would be a hoot! But just like the hilarious spoof movie "Spinaltap" hit WAY too close to home and was not well received in the Heavy Metal community, I thonk a spoof hunting show would not be popular with the trophy hunting crowd.

I too am embarrassed for the hunting community when I see most hunting shows. In my opinion, they paint deer hunters in a very poor light. I would hate to think non-hunters are watching these shows and thinking that is what deer hunting is all about.

Not defending them but there is actually a technical reason why they do that. The audio levels are set for whispering. If they started talking in a loud voice, it would distort.

Many of these shows are, quite frankly, embarrassing. I DO choose to turn them off rather than sit and watch. They prostitute hunting in many ways. Not all, but many.

And not only hunting shows, but the media in general.

Jim Cary starred in a movie called Truman where a man is raised in a world completely fake. His world is in reality, a TV show aired daily and viewed Globally. It is a number one TV show in this movie.

Everyone around him is an actor. He has no clue. Even the weather is controlled by the shows producer.

In a related fashion, the show makes me wonder how influenced we all really are by the "boob tube".
Seriously, how much do we really need to know about the garbage of this world?

The hunting industry is the same.

I saw a chilling interview with Jon Stewart vs Al Gore on Comedy Central where Al Gore said we live in a Democracy that no longer operates freely. It is controlled by big lobbyists and needs free commerce to drive (fuel) our system. In other words he said money needs to be spent by consumers to keep our system operating. And by operating he means that this will allow the wealthiest rich control Washington and tell them what to do.

On a smaller scale, hunting shows are mostly about selling product.

Recently I have been engaged in talks with a outdoor TV show producer/creator. He is successful and looking to add another camera to his team from the South.
We got through all the equipment/sponsor requirements. Then discussed dialogue and story theme. It all sounded good.

But when it came to "money talk" guess what I found out? THere is NO PAY involved, just products.

So for all the hard work, editing, money shots, and expenses the guys in front of the camera are doing this popular show for ZERO pay. The shows producer said some shows do pay their hunters, but for his show, a hunter needs to be satisfied with "telling their story".

He also told me that there are MANY outdoor TV shows that operate this way. Only the owner/producer of the show makes any money. And according to him, not much. Most money is made by selling their own products, books, video, calls, etc. Not the show itself.

What does this say about "ego"?

Hunting shows are the equivalent to watching porn. The viewer watches the guy on tv do his thing and fantasizes, to some degree, about being that person who gets to kill the big buck.

Personally, I find porn more stimulating than hunting shows \:D

Because her family has unreal amounts of money. And she got bored being the average rich girl. SO she sold her soul, or what was left of it, to publicity. She became very well known after someone, probably herself, shot video of her and her boyfriend copulating. Graphic, raw, and un-edited.

It got her attention. Just like the Khardashians, and Pamela Anderson.

Sex, and horn porn, sells.

Put Lee with an ugly, fat, and mean chick, even thought she may be a crack shot, and guess what? The show loses sponsors.

(no offense to Tiffany, she seems sweet and sincere but you get my drift)

One more thing. I can absolutely guarantee you that if some of these girls were not wearing clothes, the shows would sky rocket in ratings. And nobody would care about racks. (I mean antlers)

These shows are not educational but like porn, they are fantasies! If they offend you, turn them off. I do.

BTW, most of the "pros" are not. They are hunters looking to boost their own ego!

A few years ago, it all started out different. But money got in the way.

I know it's not ideal, but it's better to put them on the ground and finish them off than to hit a little too far back and it die a few days later.

I watch them and all. Some I like, some I don't. But in all reality stick any of them on property like we have to hunt on and see how well they do. I'd be willing to bet there are numerous hunters on this forum that are just as good or better hunters then them on tv but don't have the places to hunt like they do. Let them hunt public land, small tracts, and areas full of hunting pressure and lets see what they can do then in our world.

I really dont think there are any real experienced hunters that watch these shows and believe that they are realistic. But to a new hunter it could be very misleading. But like all of us they must live and learn. I watch very view hunting shows nowdays. When i do , its certain people at certain times during the show.

I couldn't agree more. In fact, I blame TV hunting shows for the completely unrealistic expectations most hunters now have towards the deer they persue.

I can't say that I do not watch hunting shows but I do agree that they paint hunters in a bad light and also set unreal expectations for people. These same
'professionals" would probably not be able to kill anything on properties that I hunt and would be lost with out a guide sayin "sit in this tree and the deer will be here at 530 sharp." I am in no way a pro but I know where to go on my public properties to kill deer and to see bucks. I would also go so far as to say that many of these shows are turning people off to hunting because they believe that they should see a monster the first day and get discouraged when they don't.

Unfortuntately, it is a proven scientific fact that propaganda subconciously overpowers rational thought. Just because someone "knows" TV hunting shows are for entertainment, their thoughts are still being influenced. If this wasn't a fact, manufacturers wouldn't spend the money they do on advertising.

Again, we can claim we conciously realize anything is "just entertainment." But if propaganda did not work subconciously as well as it does, advertisers would be out of business. Companies (and governments) spend so much money on advertising because it works, despite our best efforts to conciously ignore or devalue it.

Other than complaining on here,which is meaningless,what harm ,really,does having high expectations do?keeps me in the stand a few more minutes some cold mornings.

I guess wasting money on "deer lures" etc.

Same as most fishing shows,they rarely shape a show around small bass.

unles you have unusually good success, high expectations would make you unsatisfied with your hunts and you probably won't be as happy of a hunter. I started last deer season with low expectations, just wanting to enjoy hunting and kill a deer or two. I came out with 10 deer including 2 mature bucks, a lot of which had to do with luck but I can't say how happy I am with my past deer season, it's one I will never forget. I'm not trying to brag here just want to use my personal experience as an example... Now that I set the bar high, I may have higher expectations next season however I always tell myself to enjoy the hunt even if I don't kill that big one I wanted. Just my 2 cents

Actually, it's not meaningless.

No harm in high expectations. Lots of potential harm in unrealistic expectations, and most of the TV hunting shows "sell" unrealistic expectations.

Have you not seen just how quickly trophyist activists can rally like-minded hunters into taking political action? And politicians under voter pressure will quickly move to make constituents happy, with no regard for truth or facts.

I assume you are right,but I havent seen,or at least remember any big changes in a states overall regs in a while.Besides the recent Ohio changes,which I guess they have a good reason for,but dont know.

Levi morgan at just 23 years old owns several world records,as well as numerous national titles.competitive shooting gave him the opportunity to chase his true passion hunting! Mathews pro staff member his wife also a world class archer.their show name the game is great they do take what most consider long or unethical shots.they have shown time and again that they're qualified for such shots.above all they give Jesus Christ full credit for all they've accomplished.that's what impressed me about these two.not bad for a small town country boy.

actually he hit one far back on one episode from 35 yards.the shot made him sick he got lucky and hit the femeral artery for a pretty quick recovery.your right most shows don't show what really happens on those shots.This is the main reason I like their show even though they're world class archers they show their mistakes and it's not always monster bucks.
