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.

    • Well our lilacs were just starting to bud out yesterday and I was thinking we should go take a peek today. Unfortunately we got 2 inches of snow overnight and it's still coming down! I'm pretty sure Hubbard county will have to wait at least a week to ten days with the temps forecast.
    • Sorry...no excuses BB...the better team did win....4-1. Lucky for the Wild that Statsny was not playing from the start or it woukd have been a sweep. Love the fact that the national hockey gurus are ripping the Wild right now..read Souhans article pretty much what I've been saying. http://m.startribune.com/wild-again-not-good-enough-when-it-matters/420167633/ While Chicago is telling it like it is...the Wild are sending the wrong message...and Chicago has 3 cups in recent past....6 overall...pretty obvious which organization is trying to win the cup every year and which one is happy just "selling tickets".
    • Got off to a late start, but was able to get to the lower river at 6 AM. Frost covered the ground, as temps were barely above freezing. I could hear turkeys gobbling as I walked through the field. Once I made it to the wooded river valley, the sound of grouse drumming echoed through the woods. Eagles and ospreys continually flew over my head throughout he morning. The water was mabye a couple inches high, and somewhat cloudy, but was noticeably clearing as the morning progressed. 8 o'clock seemed to be the magic hour, as that's when I caught most of my 13 brown trout. Biggest was 16 inches, and had a few swipes from some dandies as well. Beautiful morning to be on the river!
    • So i have experimented with a bunch of brands to see which ones walk the best .... of coarse it depends on fisherman, rod & line being used.   7"2" Cabelas bass rod medium heavy tourney rod,  power pro 45# ...here is the order of best walking frog that worked for me off the dock.   1.  Terminator frog 2.  Bobby's perfect frog (pretty close to terminator) by snag Proof 3.  Spro frog (ok) 4.  KVD frog  (took some work) 5.  Booya pad crasher (teririble)   These are the ones i own ... terminator and snag proof where effortless!!!    
    • Running and gunning!   Congrats!
    • Nice!  WTG!
    • I've got a bunch of Humminbird Snapshots of my DI and SI stuff. Many people pay for the technology and don't know what they are looking for. Study these shots and tell me what you think you see.
