Are there any Hunting TV shows with Texas based people you like? We are thinking about moving our sponsorships away from BBA tv and looking for someone more local that is actually good and does rifle stuff. I know that market is slim and maybe not even worth sponsoring. any thoughts?

Not that I'm aware of. Best option I've seen is for custom makers is to get them in the hands of premium tag holders in the Western states. Red Rock is doing a good job of it and CCA as of late.

Yeah we talked about that. We have a place in George west and could do the same format ourself on our place but I get tired of seeing someone shoot deer from a the same 3 box blinds at an average distance. Cant tell one episode from another. Really would like to find someone that would take our 22 creed and do long range predators. Thinking we are going to have to put something together again to get what we want. Always surprised there are not more people out of Texas doing shows. Its always mid west people

A saturated market that has lost it's credibility. Product pushing prostitutes for hunting products.

Would be great to see a show that is real, doesn't always get the kill, and only promotes products that work.

I think a show that shows products that suck and aren't worth the money would be a great way to start a positive trend in this marketplace.

I've pretty much stopped watching most of the shows out there for much the same reasons that Pitchfork Predator states. Most seem like info-mercials for whatever products there are.
I'd love to see someone have a more detailed 'tech corner' segment to discuss quality items like what you offer. Something that would appeal not only to the high-dollar buyers but to average joe's and jane's. More how-to and how-its-made type of things would be of interest.
With the net there are so many 'experts' out there and it seems to have bled into the TV shows.

Another possible place to get the word out about your products, and get away from the chaff, would be to work with groups like Buckmasters, Friends of NRA, Mule Deer Association etc. These groups would be putting your product(s) in front of many people here in Texas, as well as around the country, that are a prime customer base for your products.

I could be wrong. Lack of public land access squelches much outdoor activity. Other website forum members from the West tell me they can be set up to shoot well over 1000 yards on public land less than 30 minutes from their home. I get very jealous of that. I have built a new long range rifle and have to nearly make an appointment to be able to shoot past 300 yards at semi-local ranges.

I hunted a 5000 acre ranch in the Hill Country which was fraught with predators. But, it's private as is 95% of the state.

I like Melissa Bachman personally. But, her current show for Winchester is nothing more than created field shots for their products.

Watched some show last night that showed a guy shooting a Red Stag while bedded.

I could go on & on. Pigman is credible. I like the Predator shows. They tend to be more realistic.
