Re: Most Hunting shows on TV are a joke
I like the time Babe Wilkleman ambushed a spring Turkey on film then spent 2 shows trying to lie out of it . What a sorry hunt that was for TV. Looked like something a 16 year old would have done to get his first bird.
How about the show with the money bag hunter, he's arguing with his private guide that I won't shoot that buck unless he's got a 20" spread. They are sitting in an open field with 3-4 huge bucks feeding , while the hunter is arguing about the antler size for 10 minutes! Finally he picks up the rifle and adjust his tripod and tells the guide I'm going to take your word hope I'm not disappointed with this deer ! He better be a 20 ! Bang !
Talk about one sorry azz spoiled, spoon feed, lead by the hand guided hunter ! Maybe the local taxidermist's can beef up the tines and or spread like they do on the wild hog tusks ! Yea....seen that too !
Yea he was a 20" spread huge trophy whitetail......bet the story is much different about the hunt, but most people looking at a deer head on a wall don't care, they just know he's a great hunter as they look at his trophies and sip his fine wine.
