Ok saw I just watched Larry Weishuhn , Trailing The Hunters Moon. I've always liked him but now he's WAY big time.

I just saw him kill $10,000 worth of whitetail bucks , he looks like a Nascar race car with product advertising everywhere, it was raining, he was sitting on the ground under a perfectly dry tower blind hiding behind a piece of plastic which looks like a big piece of Oak Tree bark, which he's a "pitchman" for.

The guy has killed more deer than I have seen, I guess my question is, does he, or who pays for these hunts? Who pays for all his trips around the world, some $50,000+ hunts.

I'm not say his or any hunting TV show are bad, I enjoy them and wish I was on them and YES, I buy some of the stuff I see advertised, so, did I just answer my own question in a round about way?? I pay for his hunts??? confused2

My little telephone co-op cable provider made that decision for me; placed the Outdoor channel with the Sports package that I'm not gonna pay for. Life goes on. I somehow manage to still hunt and kill things. grin

I would imagine that the majority of his hunts are donated by the ranch/outfitter. It's advertising for them.

I much prefer watching YouTube clips by amateurs. Hardly ever watch slick advertising shows any more.

I've just about stopped watching them. I'm tired of watching them kill 120-30" deer and trying to hold it to look like a monster saying its a 170...... CMON!

I'm getting tired of the bow hunters taking bad angle 47 yard shots and saying 'It might have been a little back.' Yeah, if you consider the ham a 'lil back'.

And leave them over night in 70 degree weather or the song dogs eat them. I like Fresh Tracks with Randy Newberg which is hunting as it should be on public land spot and stalk. rifle

See that all the time. Then they don't try to find it until after dark followed by, "lets come back tomorrow and look for it."

Too much talking and BS on the hunting shows to watch any of them for more then a few minutes. Mostly I just click on them when a commercial is annoying me on another channel.

Larry Weishuhn is very good at scaring deer with his pistol. I haven't seen him hunt with a pistol on a tv show in several years though.

Landowners usually let these guys hunt for free because it is good advertising for them and their ranches.
