Some of it is staged and some of it is real.. Lee and Tiff when hunting on their property I feel is real. As they have shown poachers and what not. I love watching Real Tree Road Trips but while watching one show they are on a ranch in Texas and one can see corn on the ground..My guess is that was pry a high fence but who know's? One thing is for sure, I really doubt that all of them with the exception of a few can go out on state land and bag a monster buck. They are handed everything, from their bows to their gear. They have people set up their stuff and tell them where the deer are all at. It'd be nice if one of these times they would make a few shows where they find the deer and do it all by themselves. Go on state land and shoot a monster there.. To me that would show that they really are a "pro" if they can do that all the time rather than have someone else do it for them. I would also rather them shoot a buck that I "have a chance" at seeing in real life. Lets be real, none of us "non pros" are going to see 20 P&Y and B & C every year. Take a nice 6 or an 8pt that scores somewhere in the low 100's, 90's or even 80's. Id rather see that than these larger than life deer. I've shot 2 bucks that scored over 100 on state land and those deer are BIG deer.. The 170's these guys shoot are just unreal and its not fun to watch anymore.
"If I pull the hammer and shoot this young buck, he's dead. But if I pass on him, the next hunter might not shoot so straight."
