Default Does watching videos of other hunters killing deer bother you?

I ask because, although I really enjoy hunting and have no trouble shooting a deer, gutting a deer and the like, I don't really like watching other hunters shoot an animal.

I am not being at all judgemental, just wondring if other feel the same way.

Doesn't bother me in the least bit! I learn from their shots! Canned hunt or not, I like to see the hit and the games reaction!

It doesn't bother me to watch most shows but a lot of it is BS . Some renowned hunter goes to a ranch where the guide or whatever has installed some treestands in ideal locations . When the "shooter" nails a deer and trails it , he acts surprised when he spots the deer and the cameraman is standing on the other side catching the surprised look . Or ........ a deer is shot in broad daylight and they take the just found pics in the dark using the camera lights .
I never ever watch any of the Jackie Bushwacker shows !

I can't imagine being able to shoot a deer but not be able to watch someone else shoot one. Wouldn't that make you think twice why you are hunting?

I would have to say that I don't think I learn too much from hunting shows. With only a half hor shows and most of it dedicated to promoting sponsors I don't think they have enough time to teach much. I do like to see shot placements and how far there deer run just for future reference.

I saw a do it yourself show on the outdoor channel that was really cool, one was diy elk hunt in montana and the other was a diy antelope hunt in wyoming. It was nice to see a "real" hunting show for a change.

Doesn't bother me at all. I realize most of the show is commercials, and sponsors, but the kill shots are why I watch them. As others have said, I try to learn something from the animal reaction.
