Default RE: Comments on Hunting Shows on TV.


I agree that several of what I've watched didn't appear to have the best shot placement, I don't watch them too often, but since I have learned how to use my DVR, I've been watching more. Watching the recent episode of "Gettin' Close," Lee and Tiffany had America's greatest whitetail hunter ever, Jackie Bushman on the show, and I wasn't impressed with his shot placement at all. And I noticed that the deer acted really edgy during some of the footage, like maybe they were leary, but weren't sure what they were leary about. Making me wonder about their scent or maybe it was just too much having a hunter AND a cameraman out there at the same time. Not sure, but deer don't generally act that way when I encounter them.

Following that up, I watch an episode of Primo's Truth where they are whitetail hunting in IOWA, and the one guy misses 3 times with his muzzleloader before he finally connects.
Jackie Bushman is America's greatest whitetail hunter ever? Not in my opinion haha.
A lot of the shots they get are good. Almost every time they go back to find the deer it's the same ole line. "Wow thats a better shot than I thought! He only went 40 yards from where we stopped last night!"
I really do believe they are waiting untill the morning so they can film the fake recovery of the deer in daylight.
