From the Forum discussion "Showed up wounded one , land owner said ok go back out but don't shoot this tall 8 he's only 2 years old wait for the big 10 ... dude shoots the tall 8 , literally 3 mins later (video uncut ) reloads muzzle loader shoots the big 10 ... tells land owner I Texas heart shot the big 10 . Never tells him about the 8 , never looks for the 8 ... didn't gut the 10. Spoiled the meat for pics ... just recently when confronted by the land owner . Told him it's in gods hands essentially and pretty much .... so the land owner made a video with everything documented . Then posted the video you see on this thread . CB is deleting everything but last I saw the videos had over 12k views and a ton of shares "

I hope they hammer him! Anyone know a round about area this took place? So not only did he waste two deer, you can only harvest one buck in Indiana the entire deer season.

This guy has burned a lot of people and treated the people he works with like trash for a long time. No one calls him out because he is popular and makes them money, but once the wheels come off, you are going to see a lot of stuff come out of the woodwork on him. A LOT of people have dirt on him that will come out now. His career is over.

I think the guy who filmed it is the one who finally turned him in. Just a rumor so I can't be sure.

I watched a couple of the videos about the whole thing,
as far as I know they have been taken down .
Pretty crazy .

Now he says he has found Jesus Christ, think he's a little late on the violation of the law and cameraman .

Here's a statement from one of his sponsors.

Allegedly happened in 2013. Still waiting for the landowner to repost the video he had up but took down. It brings both of the videos you can see now online together rather nicely. There's not a defense that could be had about any of this from what most can see. Taking the texas heartshot was icing on the cake for his downfall. Good riddance poacher.

Im sure almost every one of these pro hunters have done this sort of thing. Shoot an animal and after realize it wasnt the one they were after or not big enough for the show, so they leave it and shoot another.
They prob have other peoples tags in their pockets to do just that!

The two videos I seen were not the ones on YouTube.

I think one was, of the owner of the land he was hunting on, had up .

It was lengthy.

If you know of even one instance of this happening, you should go straight to law enforcement. If you do not, you are just full of crap.

I know a lot of these what you call "pro" hunters and not one of them would risk their entire career doing something like that. People like Bracket are an anomaly in the hunting business and it was just a matter of time before he was flushed out.

OK , just watched a "fresh", video from Michael Waddell .
On my phone and not smart enough to post the link .
It's "Michael Waddell's Bone Collector live video.
It's 20 minutes long .

Not going into what he had to say because of the length of it .
It's a must watch .

Could someone bring it up ?

Here's the thing also ,when you watch it he's talking mainly abouut hunting but after you watch it a first time , go back and watch it again and think of it as if he was talking about all of us trapping also .

Thank You to the person that can link up his video .

Have a great and safe day trappers !

I watch a lot of hunting shows on outdoor channel and this Chris Brackett thing has me thinking poaching might be what a lot of them do. Kill as many bucks as you can and mix and match the videos with different hunts in different places. I watched one tonight, which shall be nameless, where the host's 10 year old son shot a monster buck and later in the show the host kills another monster. I have hunted deer all of my life and know that no one is that lucky all the time. Maybe this Brackett thing is going to pull the curtain on other shows and what is going on. If you watch the video he is quite matter of fact about it and the camera man doesn't protest either.

I think Michael Waddell listened to Rush's last hour yesterday, his advise(never forget who the customer is) he was refering to the problems of the NFL but could be applied here.

A lot of footage you see in reality tv hunting shows that is supposed to be footage from one single season is often B-roll footage from years and years ago that was never produced. I know the series The Crush has done it several times. I heard it come straight form the producers mouth that that was the case.

IMO, most hunting shows and reality tv stars are are about one step above prostitution. I haven't watched a hunting show in the past 15 years.

I do like watching some DIY youtubers who hunt public land.

Well that sounds like true remorse. It's surprising coming from him. Not sure if he really has changed or just knows how to say all the right things. We shall see as this develops.

Not real sure who I would consider the scum the one the did wrong or the the that saw someone do wrong and chose to ignore it because they were making money off him.

Both are scum as far as I'm concerned

I bet this is a regular thing for this bunch and others in this industry.
