Wait till you guys are in your upper 50's and lower 60's and see if you don't get excited when you realize you can still kill deer with a bow at that age. My least favorite would be David Blanton. Watched a Realtree video once and he clearly hit the deer in the neck and they passed it off as a good shot and replaced the deer. With running the shot in slow motion many times it was very evident where he hit it, and looking at the rack on the deer they "found" the brow tines were different. Just admit you made a bad shot and teach people how not to do it. Probably why I don't like too many hunting shows or videos.
    LMAO....I didn't see that but I believe ya......sounds hillarious
    If there were 8 days in a week I would hunt 8 days

    To you guys that think some of the shows are no good because they take hunters around the country and put them on deer. I agree with most. Do you think any of these guys, Fitzgerald, Foulkrod, Potts, as "OLD" as they are, just may have done some hunting before videos were so popular? And maybe, just maybe, they had the skills and the talent to be beneficial for these video companies. Just sayin.

    well I am sure many of the guys have skills
    I just think many are just lucky to have sponcers wiling to supply them with top shelf equipment, and placing them in prime places
    takes a learning curve out of teh picture same goes for them taking kids and well women to prime places , and thats all they seem to know /experienced, and then they talk about it like they are highly skilled?? , maybe at shooting and being on TYV< but to me, thats not hunting in the real world!, or learning the skills it takes to do it on your own!
    and it bothers me to hear them cry about being in a stand for 4 or 5 days and not killing a bucks yet
    its that and the fact, from many of the shows I seen they call so many deer they kill MATURE bucks, just to sound like they did, wehen an experienced hunetr can plainly see they didn't!
    last day of hunts are prime for this, and same goes for them that miss judge
    I would really like to see more honest info being given
    I get its a hunting show and they need to make kills on camera
    fine, just don't bullcrap us about what they did
    and quit crying about hunting a few days and not making a kill
    far too many real hunters go all season without a kill, and don't cry as much!
    maybe cause many die hard hunters hunt because they just plain enjoy it and don't feel the need to blow things out of proportion

    so do some of them have skills, SURE
    but how long after being set up, by others,
    do you loose your skills??

    Actually my favorite professional hunter is BIG HOLLA. Now that guy knows how to put'em down!

But what they represent, however, is flesh and blood - fathers and sons, friends spending time with friends and the the seasons of life when the people we love were still with us. These old antlers on the wall...well, take a seat, my friend, and I'll tell you all about them." -Rev. Zeke Pipher

    i guess my biggest beef with these "professional" hunters are if you make a bad shot bub, just say you did. You'll see em gut shot a deer and the guy will be fist pumping and doing cart wheels in his stand and say how he "thinks" it's a good shot when clearly it wasn't. Then when you see him with the deer the thing is stiff as a board and they say oh it was getting dark so we decided to let him lay, and they don't tell you bout the mob they brought in the next morning to scour for the deer. Yeah it's great they recover it but with DVR today we the viewer can slow down the show and watch the shot closely, so if it's a bad shot, don't sugar coat it, it happens.

    Least favorite: Stan Potts. Every time he shoots a deer I think he's either gonna have a heart attack or a stroke.
    Don't really have a favorite but I like that guy that does the on your own hunts.
    My biggest beef with all the shows is I'm so friggen tired of hearing the phrase "mature dominant buck". Its like every other sentence. Just call it a buck already and stop trying to dress it up so much. We all know what we should shoot and don't need to be reminded fifty times in a thirty minute show.

    Plain old getting tired of a lot of the hunting shows these days. Any show that is behind a fence and they try to pawn it off as a fair chase get's my vote for worst personality. Shocking what shows actually do this and don't tell you. Big ego's are a big turn off too and I am certainly listening when I hear members say who treated them poorly.

    Good shows/personalities well so far I would say I enjoy the Dropped - Project series with the Keefer's. The last one was Dropped Project Alaska and after the New Year it's Dropped Project Yukon. Guess it's more entertainment for me and showing what really happens to them along their journey. Just something different than all these shows "mine is bigger than yours'. They also have their other show Back Country Quest that isn't too bad so far.
    Opportunity is missed by most people because it is dressed in overalls and looks like work.

    Have to say Lee and Tiffany are my favorites, try not to watch much TV! They are not High fence hunters, And they are not afraid to share there hunting grounds with there friends. They put alot of work into making there farms very huntable.

    I can't believe so many people like Stan Potts, but so does my brother so maybe its just me that thinks Stan is freaking annoying!....Its only a big buck Stan, you shoot several of them every year, you can't really be that darn excited about it!

    I'm right there with you. I refuse to watch any show he's involved in.
