Yes, good old uncle Ted, 6 spare magazines when he carried his 9mm Berretta, he says you never know when there will be a terrorist threat, and obviously he would be there to stop it with his 112 Corbon bullets, (I believe he touched off 16 shots,x the total 7 mags.) And yes he claimed that most lawmen die in the line of duty from running out of ammo. I don't know about that one!!?? 
 
Ted really has a great show though, VERY entertaining, way to many things he tries to get us to buy though, he's always standing or sitting in front of a bunch of stuff.
 
And would also like to see alot more of Tiffany, a little less shine on her teeth though, they really glare.
 
Most of the shows are informative and entertaining. Some of the commercials are good to. Its good to see many of these "stars" getting together on many commercials trying to get us to buy these 100 plus dollar targets, or high end bows. Then you see them on their show, shooting different bows than what they were trying to sell us.

To me, these hunting shows and porno movies have alot in common:
 
 
1. They both use whores.
 
2. They both exploit what should be a personal experience and degrade it.
 
3. They both give a false view of the subject that they are showing.
 
4. When you've seen one, you've seen them all.
 
5. They could ALL be titled "STUFF THAT NEVER HAPPENS TO ME!!"
 
6. They both depict something that I would MUCH ,MUCH ,MUCH rather DO than WATCH!

LOL Woods, you really have a way with words you know! I noticed most of them promote and use different items as well, I guess honesty isn't a value they possess,when their checks get wrote.  Jim Shockey seems ok,but I really don't know the man, any hunter that can get a slam with a muzzle loader has to be ok. I saw Ted in the hog and turkey series, pulling out a gun when he couldn't get the job done with a bow, just didn't seem right to me. Maybe I have to much pride I guess. One show that seems decent is cabelas memories in the field. Atleast the hunters are down to earth, real deal everyday people.

I have no real problems with hunting shows....if you like them, then watch them.
 
For me, trying to put a hunt into the context and time frame of a TV show is impossble, as there is SOOOOOOOOOO much more to a hunt then what you can do with any media. The sights, smells, feelings,  utter lack of time context, and the unique camaradiere of the people you share a camp with.
 
It's like trying to photograph a sunset....close, but no cigar!

I find it odd that on the one hand we have a sport that is losing popularity with the young, mostly because it is too boring for their minds that have been seduced by video games.  On the other hand, somebody decides to have a show that showcases that sport.  Stranger still is the idea of multiple networks devoted to the subject.  For as much as I love deer hunting, even I have to admit that watching other people hunt is akin to watching the glaciers retreat.

My wife, KYHillChick and I do watch these shows and the turkey hunting shows as well.  However, we have to spice it up a bit. My now-departed dog, Barney, taught me some important lessons that help liven up our hunting show experience.  My new dog, Jay, is carrying on the tradition.  The important things to remember are:

1) The outdoor show theme music is a sure sign that live game has been loosed somewhere in the house.  You need to come immediately so that you can catch them before they disperse.

2) When the game runs to the right, you need to go bark out the window.

3)  When the game runs offscreen to the left, you need to run out of the room and scour the house for it.

4)  When the deer runs away in the center of the screen, he's run behind the screen of the projector TV.  A thorough search on the back of the screen is in order.

5) When the hunter is aiming, he is aiming at you.  You need to run up to the screen and bark at him until he puts it down.

6)  The heads on the wall really do talk when you're not watching.  After each show, you need to give them extra scrutiny and sniff to see if they have been using that Tink's 69 again.

7) All the people on the screen are talking to you.  You need to show them you're nice and they will reach out from the screen and give you affection.  If they don't you need to bark at them and wag your tail.


I hope this clears up any confusions and improves your hunting show experience.

One of the few hunting shows I enjoy are "The Fitzgeralds" . [:)]
I cannot stand Jackie Bushman and Ted Nugent sounds like a bag of wind ! [:@]
It irks me to no end to see someone shoot a deer , trail it and then make out like he just found it and let out a shout , "there it is"  as he walks toward the deer and camera man . 99% of the shows won't show how the Professional had a bad hit . [:'(]
Then there are the guys in the elevate shooting shack with sliding windows , propane heater , shelf for their coffe cup and shooting rest . Then make a big deal out of shooting a nice buck that they picked out 6 or 8 . [X(]
Why do they whisper after the deer is dead ? [8|]
