I have been saying it for years, TV is/will be tje downfall to hunting. It used to be the hunting shows did focus on the hunt as Wes mentioned, however, apparently that doesn't get you sponsorships.. Now they just promote products and focus on the kill....alot of these guys don't know a thing about hunting, just killing but it sells....I watched Michael Waddell crawl around behind his Thunderchicken shooting gobblers....does this really need to be on TV? I can already envision the story of how hunter gets shot crawling around behind a decoy........

Figured I'd fuel the fire with this post....

For those who don't think the "average Joe" will not only try a 60-80 yard shot (60-90 steps depending on your stride) with his new WIN Longbeard XRs, AND furthermore, advocate it to others, just watch this video filmed on the MS opener.

Man that makes my blood boil. I will choose to not comment any further so I don't get myself in trouble. But let it be known every week that has passed during this ramp up to the season I'm losing more and more faith in the people that call themselves turkey hunters and am ashamed to share the woods with them.

Look-everyone has to determine their own style/method in all aspects of life. With turkey hunting it is no different. I am happy to see an improved shell that doesn't cost $5 per that will hold tighter patterns to longer range myself-that also means it has a tighter pattern at shorter or more appropriate ranges as well. Technology has given us much more efficient equipment. If a hunter chooses to hunt with the equipment that his grandfather or great grandfather used- great! That certainly should give him/her a greater sense of accomplishment when they are successful. However that doesn't give them the right to become the czar or emperor of turkey hunting to dictate to other hunters the ways and means that the other hunters should/must use. The same concept applies to all other hunting as well. Everyone has their line of fair chase or ethics-it WILL NOT be the same for everyone. That is why legal ways and means are the province of the wildlife agencies and not any one individual. Just hunt the way you like and don't worry so much about what everyone else is doing. Their methods shouldn't detract from your enjoyment of your hunting style.

That may be all good and well if you are hunting private lands.... If you are hunting public lands, others' actions can/do affect your hunt.... I have had it happen on private land as well though.

As a license buyer, I have the right to say something.... especially if I see someone out shooting up shells wounding turkeys left and right because they saw someone on tv/youtube make that same shot or they read about a 72 yard shot on an internet forum and they think they can too.... Wounded and lost birds affects us all as turkey hunters.... especially in areas where the population may be struggling.

The hunting industry has a tremendous opportunity I believe...to bring to the forefront topics related to hunting ethics and and developing skills in the field. Ethics are personal and I get that but so much focus in on product / outfitters vs woodsmanship / sportsmanship.

IMO, if someone is stupid enough to wound turkeys left and right because they saw a video or a post, it's not the video/post's fault... You just have a stupid hunter running in the woods who would do stuff like that anyway. I know someone whose friend went with another friend last year on opening day, and between the 2 of them, they killed 8 toms out of a flock. Just goes to show some people don't care.
