Most hunting shows embarass me.


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.

Bryan, I would hate to think that hunters are watching some of these shows and thinking that is what hunting is all about!

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.

Unfortunately, like fake wrestling on tv, it's entertainment.

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.
