Get dumber and dumber? It's so bad that I will avoid products because I'm not willing to tell someone I killed my deer with a Swhacker broadhead. Can't do it. The Butt Out works great, you say? That's alright. I've got a knife and a shred of dignity.

If you've got a good product, then don't ruin it with a stupid name.

This current trend reminds me of modern country music.

Don't remind me. I'm still sore about that one.

Seriously, though, it can't get much worse than that. Can it?

It's the Bro Country syndrome.

Apparently most young folks today are very shallow and impressionable. That's all I got.

We bought a Butt Out. I just couldn't bring myself to do it. I felt like I was going to violate the deer.
It just lays around the cleaning station, it never has been used. Its a great conversation piece.

Yeah, just look at what's on TV. I can't even begin to describe what I saw on one of those redneck shows the other day before I made my coworker change the channel.

Sneaky, go back to your room until you can come out with a better attitude! grin

Seriously, I think NP is on to something, plus it takes more imagination now that the easy names have been taken.

Adding the word "tactical" to the model names of flashlights and anything meant to be used with a firearm has worked wonders.

Manufacturers are just expanding their product base to match their target markets.

Sad to say its true.

I lost all respect for the mainstream hunting industry when I saw a advertisement for a show called "deer thugs "

There is nothing thuggish about a Caucasian male who is 40 lbs overweight sitting in a stand trying to shoot a deer. Not one damn thing

Give me a Craig boddington show any day. It seems there has been a division of classes so to speak between the "upper eschelon" type hunters who belong to SCI and B&C and can form a complete sentence and speak intelligently and the "aww shucks I just whacked me a forkhorn" guys who it seems 90% of the market is catered to

I see one more deer or pig skull graphic on the stock of a synthetic rifle I'm gonna puke. This isn't world of Warcraft it's called hunting

I will distance myself frm these types in any way I can

I bought a 243 a few months ago and just wanted to find a box of ammo to site it in with. The only 243 ammo I could find at 2 academys and 3 wallmarts was Deer thugs ammo... and I almost didn't buy it because of that. I still aggravates me.
