My 'too boring for TV' comment meant just that. My hunts are plenty entertaining for me.

Just posted a comment on Youtube/antelope on the run. See if it gets deleted.

Nice shot. Bad acting. You can tell it's a staged "kill" scene. Even the guide feels stupid doing´╗┐ it.

Don't know if it will since you told him nice shot. Who knows, most of the post that have been deleted are ones that call him out about resting his barrel on the shooting stick and not the forearm of the stock. Or that it was a lucky shot, and an unethical one. Only time will tell if he liked your comment on his and the guides acting.

My frien and I bowhunted elk in the Bob marshall wilderness for years. We got pretty good at it. I cow called a bull in to about 15 yards one time. I had three cow calls around my neck cause they would freeze up. I had them all frozen, was standing there with a pocket knife having to pick the reed lose every time I called and he came blasting in on top of me. I had the bow on my shoulder still on a sling. Looked a little stupid. I had my partner set up to the side but he couldn't get a shot off. He killed a 379 the next year with a bow.. It's in the book. this was before digital cameras and such. i really have some cool pictures. Don't know whether they could be scanned somehow and posted or not.

A lot of what I see on TV is just silliness.

A couple of things about the hunting shows.

Firstly, they are just one long running commercial. Who could carry all the crap those guys use on TV show? They must carry 100 pounds of camo make-up, camo back pack, doe in heat scent, scent blocker, camo shirts, camo masks, camo hats, camo boots, camo rifles/shotguns, camo ammo, camo truck, camo bow, camo ATV, camo binoculars, camo range finder, camo binocular case, camo range finder case, camo suspenders, camo tree stand, camp turkey seat, camo elk call, camo duck call and a guide completely covered in camo.

Secondly, why do they whisper after they have taken the shot and the game has run off?

Pure silliness.

Oh, and in the name of god- would someone please put that idiot Iaconelli out of my misery?

comedy

Our hunts would be full of laughe. last year we depart the truck at 4:45 a.m. and get about 100 yards down the road when the dog in the truck starts barking. We go" holys__t he is gonna wake every animal for miles "then the horn goes non stop for about three or 4 min.We keep on going and 4 hours later we return to the truck only to find a big ole pile of bear poop next to the truck.Can not believe that luck. We did not see any bears for the rest of the week. I think that is funny.

My hunts are as boring as watching paint dry, No it really is that boring. But the minute I spot that deer, My heart starts running wild. I love that feeling.

Two Exceptions

I agree, most hunting shows are poorly made if not down right boring. But there are couple of exceptions.

One is Hunting With Hank and the other is The Spirit Of The Wild. Even the production quality of these two shows is superior, they are not cheesy, handheld camcorder looking.

I did meet Dez Young once. He is a great hunter and a great conservationist. He is one of the last of the gentlemen hunters.

Our Moose hunts would be too boring to watch up until we are back at camp. Then the guns are put away and the beer and whiskey come out. Drunken wrestling, stick swordfights and obvious lying may be a little more fun to watch than a guy walking around... then sitting around...then calling and back to walking around again.

We could only do ours as a comedy show. We did think maybe we could do a little "Hunting Camp Vittles" cooking show, considering the slop we call food in camp....

Mine would be interesting if you enjoyed comedy. You would see me say hi, and the rest would be outtakes. Its so nice to hunt with friends.
