Uhhh...try to sell me a vacume cleaner

Send me tapes I never asked for and then asked for money - of course I kept them and never sent him a penny.

Have his telemarketers call me once a month - selling some sort of crap[:' (]

Hmm...I have never gotten any of that stuff.

I enjoy the television program, and haven' t seen anything he has done like that. I have never been called or anything. Guess some people do and some don' t.

To me, Jackie Bushman just does not come off as really knowing his stuff when it comes to hunting. But then, there are also a few other hunting show hosts that probably couldn' t " hunt" their way out of a paper sack either!
As far as Buckmasters and JB go, allowing unethical or questionable hunting stories into their magazine and web site shows me that they are more concerned with making money than they are in truely promoting hunting as a sport!

I' d like to see him do a show hunting in the deep woods of northern Maine and see how many deer he sees. Nothing against him personally.......I do enjoy watching the shows and the big bucks but it is a whole different sport than the hunting I am used to. I would like to see someone like the Benoits do a hunting show.........some real traditional hunts instead of big $$ fenced-in guided ranch hunts.

The promotional side of Buckmasters seems to overshadow the actual sport itself. Understandably they need to make money, but somewhere a line should be drawn.

Well, I don' t know about you guys but the only hunting shows we get up here are Realtree and Buckmasters. I hate the commercialism of both shows, but love to see the actual hunting segments. As for Jackie, I could take him or leave him, but it' s his show, so what the hell?

When I first got cable I watched them programs all the time. Dont even turn on the outdoor channel anymore. understanding they are in it for money ,thats their living,I dont watch anymore ,cause it makes me feel like a failure. They usually get a deer ,Big boone and crocket to boot. Hey I am happy with my dink Pa. bucks. But love the mature does . They are sweat to the mouth. I think one thing that turned me off to them type was>>>>> I always hunted in Iowa as a nonresident. It is a lottery for tags. Good let the best man win! But I did not get a tag in the past 2 years. Yet the TV show hunters hunt there. Then I found out Iowa has special hunting permits for such people like outfitters and TV for hunting. What makes them any special then me ???

cardeer, that makes me wonder if they could get a Maine moose permit just by asking. I wouldn' t doubt it, because the state loves $$, and that would mean increased publicity and more $$ from the moose lottery. I have been trying every year for over 10 years to get one with no luck, as have many residents.

I understand the need to sell but MR. Buckmaster takes it to a whole new level[:' (]. I care not to watch, support or acknowledge JB anymore, as I feel the man does nothing to enlighten, educate or even entertain me personally.

I made the mistake of joining Buckmasters once. Within a week junk started showing up at my door that I did not want or ask for. I was supposed to pay for it or send it back. Sometimes I' d get a video tape which I would send back and then I' d get the same one again. Sometimes they kept on billing me for things I had already sent back. Numerous times they sent me the same stuff repeatedly. It was like being in the Columbia Record and Tape Club from hell. Although I can' t prove it I am certain they sold my home adress, email adress and Phone number to every junk mailer and telemarketer on planet earth. The amount of junk e-mail, junk mail and telemarketer calls I was recieving tripled after joining this organization. After about 3 months I finally called up and had a little verbal a$$ kicking session with them and of course never renewed my membership. Hands down the most money grubbing greedy organization ever to hit the surface of the earth. So, thats why I hate Jackie Bushman. Not to mention the unmitigatd brass balls it takes to actually refer to yourself as " THE BUCKMASTER"
