Older members may remember a TV show named "Simon and Simon" (1981-1995). It turns out the two actors are avid hunters and good friends. I'm watching "Ram Outdoorsman" on the Outdoor Channel right now and they're hunting whitetail in Montana. They said that when they were filming their show they went on one week hunts which the crew called "Bambi Breaks".

I also just learned that the blonde one was shot twice by a neighbor who had insulted his wife. Anyway, here's a look at them in their show days:
