Am I just getting too cynical or are all hunting shows just infomercials anymore?

I went a while without cable then signed up. I only get the Pursuit Channel on my line-up, but I can view what's showing on the Outdoor Channel. Both channels look about the same except I see that for the next three hour the Outdoor Channel is running some 35 year old Mel Gibson movie. Is there really that big of shortage of quality outdoor programming?

I want to watch hunting adventures when I watch TV, not someone trying to sell an armchair outdoors-man something he doesn't really need.

Just had to vent a little; bout to unplug the entire thing.

That's how they are now. I got rid of cable/dish about 3 years ago. If I want to watch anything, I get it online and cast it to my t.v. YouTube has anything you want.


When life gets me down..... you know hunting/trapping season is closed.

I just checked and see that the Pursuit channel is showing an aoudad hunt at night with night vison, from the back of a truck at a feeder of course. What up next hour; spot-lighting deer?

Just infomercials interrupted by commercials.


I'm glad so many people spend money doing what we love or else we might be even less relevant though..... But....I'll keep my money by keeping it simple.

Whitetail...the god of "0utdoor" programming, and don't forget....wait....wait...wait Broadside, only a Broadside shot. Nothing else acceptable. Geezz. If I would have waited for a Broadside all these years my 4 kids and Wife would never have eaten meat!

I'm tired of the catch phrases. I sometimes watch with the volume down to avoid:
'Big buck down"
'Shoot em in the face"
"Slock em"
"Shank!'
'If it flies, it dies"
Etc...
Jim Shockey is about the only one I watch anymore.


I will gladly feast on those who would subdue me.

Iím tired of the commercials and all the advertising too. But what really bugs me is the lack of good picture quality from subpar video equipment being use to record the hunts. Also the people video taping not knowing how to video tape for tv.
I watch hunting shows on the internet now mostly cause there are some guys that really put money, time, and effort into putting up a quality video rather than just a kill shot from 300 yards and a video camera that canít zoom in far enough.

I watched the Justice League movie the other day. Not terrible I liked it. Don't know what all the whinning is about. I thought it was perfectly good for a super hero movie. Internet is a big expertise in group think. Except t-man

Last few times I saw Shockey on tv he was sitting around a bunch of natives in an African country I never heard of sharing meat from an animal I never heard of and preaching the gospel like Savell with a bunch of them pentacostal women.

I'll consider watching again when someone tells me they actually recover a deer the same day its shot. "lets back on outa here and givem a chance to bloat'up good".

I always thought that was rediculous, too. They'll put a great shot on a buck, at 12-1-2 o'clock in the afternoon, and when they recover it, it's pitch black outside or the next day!

I feel your pain. All the hunting shows and magazine articles on hunting and firearms are now about tactical rifles and arms.

I recall watching a whitetail "hunt" that was taking place in Texas. About 50 yards in front of the elevated box stand there was a tripod feeder - with a dozen or so deer under it. Just as the guy was about to shoot a decent buck out of the group, the automatic timer on the feeder went off and spooked the deer away. The guy turned his head to look into the camera and said, "well, that's huntin' I guess".

That was the end of The Outdoor Channel for me.

Couldn't agree more.

The only hunting show I look for.

Maybe the poor quality video is to hide the poor quality hunt.
