I really liked the segment in the turkey/ longbow episode where he sat down with the Primative Weapons Specialist (Or whatever his title was) at 3 Rivers Archery.
They sat down and Tred got a tutorial on making a flint arrowhead and he was so genuinely in awe of the process and wanted to be hands on I thought it was a great segment. He looked at the guy doing the work like he was inventing fire for the first time.

(By the way after knowing all the work that goes into a single flint arrowhead I wouldn't have the heart to shoot one. Seriously[:-])

are you saying he is a bad shot for trying to shoot a flying duck and not succeding for 6 years? try and see how long it takes you?...i think the guy puts whatever he does on the show, he doesn't edit his shots.if he makes a bad shot he doesn't cut to a clip of him holding the buck, it shows him looking for it, or packing out a huge moose that died in a pond. i like him.if you dont , then change the channel.
I am not saying he is a bad shot,i am saying he has no respect for the people that hunt and he is dumb. I think he is dumb,he is getting to hunt for free and he is disrespecting the people that are letting him.

I saw the duck episode. I didn't see anything that was disrespectful of his host. I saw some good natured kidding but no outright disrespect. What exactly are you refering to? As far as his show, well we just don't match well personality wise.

I would hunt or fish with Tred Barta anytime he is ready. I like that he is teaching the old time ethics of learning about your species, learning to do things the hard way, and actually hunting. I am in the process of starting a hunting show in the next year and we start filming during turkey season this year and Tred Barta is one of the people I look up to. His attitude is cocky, but I can tell that he has done his homework for each and every species he hunts and he works hard for the animals that he hunts. He has taken the time to learn the flora and fauna of the area he hunts, and he has talked to everyone he can get his hands on to gain advise. You can tell he wants to learn and he does not hide the fact that he misses or screws up! I would rather watch 4 of his shows where he is unsuccessful then to watch him blast animals over and over the easy way!

Nuff Said!

I've only seen a few of his shows, but his ego aside, he does something different and at least to me that's important. Ted Nugent used to be that way, I remember the first time I saw Spirit of the Wild on tv, he shot a little doe. Up until that point I had only seen large, trophy bucks taken on camera. That's when I became a fan of his show. But lately, all he seems to want to do is hunt high fence ranches is texas. Not exactly what I like to watch, and not very original at all.

The only thing that I like about Tred is that he uses a Trad Bow alot. He's one of the few big name hunters on TV that uses traditional gear. Other than that, I think the guy is an idiot.

Tred is a bit different, that's for sure. Generally, I think he'sa good hunter and well educated aboutthe game he hunts. I must say, I've seen him take more than a couplequestionable (moving)shots on game, and miss.All in all, he is usually quite accurate. There is a part of me the likes him.

And Ted Nugent isn't a little full of himself? I think Tred is attempting to be humorous. Also, it's spelled "disgraced".

Sorry, I'm only 10.
