Hunting shows and Safety?

9 posts in this topic

I love watching hunting shows i have for years but has anyone else noticed how poor their safety is on these shows. I was watching a show last night and lost count how many times this guy had his loaded gun pointed at someone. Its nuts to think they are professionals at what they do but they ignor some of the basic safety issues. I guess that was a little rant to see if anyone else noticed this.

I also notice it. Hank parker does it all the time. he should just stay fishing its safer that way.

the guys who are turkey hunting and go running H-Bent for election after a turkey that's already anchored are some others that have no regard for safety.

Not really a safety issue, but I can't figure out the guys who drop a deer in plain site and come back 12 hours later to pick it up. Should be good and tender after the guts bake inside. That's if the coyotes don't get them first.

As for leaving the deer lay - all they care about is the antlers. I swear I saw a guy shoot a turkey with a cow standing behind it. That cow sure jumped. I was dissapointed because as show was put on by a turkey federation. If you watch the South Dakota pheasant shows sometimes the bird gets up and the guide hits the deck must be from past experiences.

Nothing like and overweight one-who-thinks-I-am-silly running full speed with a semi auto shotgun after a turkey.

Not so much on the safety, but they really need a hunting show for the "common" guy. Almost all the time they are in a prime location, with 6 months of digital scouting camera photos, a 1 sweet food plot, or they are hunting at through an outfitter.

Granted, they are filming for tv, but do still.

Ohhh well I will still watch...

I like the shows were they have some young kid, disabled hunter, or a regular guy on the hunt of a lifetime. I was watching a show were a guy shot a small buck somewhere in canada. At first I was wondering why he shot such a small deer but after seeing his excitement and he started crying I understood why.

    • First off, the comment I made which you replied to with a hypothesis never stated that there was proof they did anything wrong. I merely and accurately stated that there was a chance they did some of the same things and it appears that may be the case.   You said plainly that VW could have chosen the Daimler tech but chose not to. In the end doing so may very well have found them in the same boat.    
    • Haula is probably going to see a lot of playing time so I don't doubt he will have some nice years, kind of like how Brodziak scored 20 playing as our first line center. I like Schroeder as first call up or emergency player but he just can't consistently bring it in the NHL, that is no crime because when he gets hot he is fun to watch but he just can't stay there. 
    • That's some good info, Thanks.
    •   I think they're shut down, too.  Smells like no money and more welfare...    
    •   Not sure if their still producing cardboard up at that plant anymore?
    • Now Haula and Tuch will have career seasons next year.  Haula is the odds on favorite to win the Ross trophy and Tuch should have a couple Norris' in the next 5 years.     Sounds like Wild might not bring Schroeder back either.  I really hope they are contenders for a strong center or a really nice goal scorer.  
    • Good point about the center support.  I wandered out to my ground blind on one of the last days of archery season to find the roof caved in and two poles busted. 
    • MMmmm Cloquet....   Smells like money.
    • I am a little concerned with it fading but it needs to be left up for the deer to get accustomed to it so no way around that.   I assume the sun is the main culprit in fading so I'll do my best to protect against that.  One spot I'm considering is tucked into some pines which create a lot of shade, brushing it in heavily should also help keep it out of direct sun as well.   Good point about a center support to help with the snow.  I'll make sure to add something.
    • interesting? oh its raining here too!!!!!!!!!!!
