The Hunting Public Group
Remi Warren (demeanor, tactics, etc)
Randy Newberg (makes a point to show the whole hunting process and tries to keep politics out of it) (fellow CPA so there's that)
Dr. Duck (any duck hunter from Texas has my vote)
Stephen Rinella Group (although they tend to lean a little left on some stuff)
Gritty and Lampers (just for the shear work they put into their hunts)

There are others but these are most top of mind

Tink Nathan (of Tink's Deer Scents). He's the only person I've ever met that's killed an elephant with a bow. Much respect.

Born and Raised guys are good too, their earlier content is better then new content though... they aren’t poor any more and you don’t see to much of the sleeping under the truck on side of the road, so the resonate level with us common guys is harder.

The video content being put out by Journal of Mtn Hunting is good also


Donate to TX Youth hunting program.... better to donate then to waste it in taxes

All of them. I really like Clay Hayes and Jeff Sturgis as well.

Seems like film making for some hunting shows is getting better. They are getting a little more subtle in their product placement and endorsement.

Yep. Their early content had some seriously close bow encounters with elk. I haven't watched this year's yet. That will be summer watching.

The key there is routinely. Most of these shows are in northern climes where meat won't spoil overnight. But I do think many are a little over cautious in that respect.

Are you talking professional hunters or magazine writers? I have taken numerous hunting magazine writers hunting and they are by no means "professional Hunters".

I think it’s almost platform dependent. I think the sponsor product placement from the really really good cinema guys is in the videographer talent. Perfect example is Uncharted by Jim Shocks or some of the Donnie Vinnicent stuff or The experience. Those guys are putting out award winning cinema level content, and you know the products they are pimping but don’t here them pimp it.

Remi with solo hunter now Meateater or BRO or Gritty guys Are putting out good content but hooking people in via sponsor giveways, but they are paid via their social media reach numbers so product placement is different.

Really interesting to me, Watching the evolution


The giant in the room is Meateater. Not the show the company. It’s changing the landscape quickly

Shockey's production values are off the chart. Having not met him, it's hard to judge, but from most of the things he says he seems to be a pretty good guy.

I'm not sure if Meateater is the first to consolidate content. They have either 5 or 6 different podcast platforms now. It will indeed be very interesting to see where this goes. I do like that they are starting to show the complete hunting experience and not just stopping at the glory shots.

I was surprised this year on one hunt when I asked my son if he wanted a picture with the animal. He said why would I want a picture with a dead animal. I'd rather have the head and pictures of live animals. It seems the younger crowd has a different view of those shots than us old fogies. I still like to have pictures to remember the hunt but I think they have other, maybe better, avenues for remembering.

I see us moving in an overall positive direction on video and explaining the whole hunting experience.

That's what I like most about the MeatEater platform, I like how they show all the way to preparing wild game in different ways.

I agree with it being platform dependent. Meateater is the big one I guess. I enjoy his TV show on Netflix. Remi is great too. I heard him on Joe Rogan a few times. It can be hard to relate to those guys though because they hunt up north usually and have top notch gear. I do not sadly. Rinella seems to do more stalking as well. I have never done that as I hunt from a ground blind or a stand. You can still learn some things from those guys though. I am looking for a good place to learn. Is Meateater the Bear Grylls of hunting or the Les Stroud if you know what I mean?

As far as platforms. It seems like there are podcasts, TV shows and YouTubers. I do not count writers really.

Who are your favorite podcasts about hunting? TV shows? YouTube channels?

Randy Newberg and Stephen Rinella are probably my top two.

A friend of mine actually met Randy up in Wyoming a year or so back. Randy said if my buddy's son drew a bull tag, Randy would tag along and film it all for them. Unfortunately, he didn't draw a tag for that unit. My buddy said he was super down to earth and very personable.

Also the MeatEater Back 40 and Das Boat episodes a good watch.

All the magazine and film type guys are good guys. But, they are not the professional hunters. The organizations or individual guides that put them on the animals are the professional hunters. The individuals that do the shooting at the animals have the easiest jobs. All the writers do is make it sound like a really hard hunt. Don't doubt me on that. I have been there.

Most of the newer ones being mentioned on here broke into the market or built their platform off self filmed DIY public hunting.

All these are non guided DIY except where mandated by law
Hunting public
Meat eater
Born and Raised outdoors
Gritty
Randy Newberg
