Jim Shockey

Was catching up on some shows on the DVR and watched about 3 Jim Shockey episodes and am reminded how much of a STUD this guy is....anyone else see the episode with his father and father-inlaw hunting deer, pure classic....he is also the only person to complete the North American Ultimate Slam (which includes shooting all 30 North American big game animals and having them all make their respected record books) with a muzzleloader....that is pretty amazing...

He does appear to be the real deal doesn't he?  All the father and in-law episodes are great. I've seen several re-runs and always watch them from start to finish, very funny!!

If only my life involved hunting.  Heck, I think any of us that love to hunt could do the grand slam if we were given the opportunity.  Granted, he probably made it for himself but you guys know what I mean.

Yes, I like his shows.  They seem more real than many of the shows out there.  Plus, it is obvious he lives to hunt.

He just may be cooler than chuck norris. Plus if you use his powder in your muzzleloader you can shoot 5000000000 between cleanings!

he is pretty funny and my wife seems to have a crush on the guy.... which makes me wonder why she harps on me about trimming my beard?

Chuck Norris would round house kick him right in the muzzleloader....

I pretty much despise all hunting shows and everybody in them.  I can't watch a single one of them anymore.  They make me gag.

It seems to get me too the same way. its all "plant your food plots this way," or pay $6,000 then you can shoot the buck of you

sorry my post didn't finish. But all in all to me it's so abnormal it doesn't even catch me as normal guy anymore. They make it seem so much like a rich mans sport(depending on a lot of shows, but this is how most are).IMO its fun to watch, but so unrealistic for normal everday guy. But like I said I will still watch it.

If there is one sport that truly can be bought, its big game hunting. shockey is one of the few shows I do like but that too is big money hunting. Buckmasters is a complete joke.

I disagree.  If you pick and choose your programming wisely there are some good shows out there.

But yes, many out there are becoming some sort of fence hunting, reality TV combined with poor humor.  I suppose that's why the spoof is going to be popular?

Shockey's okay but you have to admit he's a long way from the talent of Jimmy Big Time.

I'd pretty much rather stick my head in a boiling vat of asphalt than attempt to watch 2 seconds of ANY "hunting" show....

Jiffy,

Is that a deal?

I know a location of a plant where we could fire up a batch.  Although, we are shut down today.  Go figure.  Nothing like a 6 to 7 day job turnng into a three to four week job.  Paving in October is awesome.

I don't have satellite TV anymore so I don't have access to all those huntin' and fishin" shows.  However, the one show I do miss and the man himself, is Tony Dean Outdoors.  I haven't seen Jason Mitchells show, but in my mind, no one can beat Tony Dean.

Agreed, The Big Time is the best show on the Outdoor Channel.  It is really the only one I will watch other than non-Bass/Saltwater fishing.  You see a lot of shows with Team Realtree (I think) hunting the Milk River near Malta, MT.  I have heard they are not very well liked around there. 

Anyone else despise Bass and Saltwater fishing shows?  Maybe I am just weird.

 I don’t want to kill the animal, but I do want to warn it, and say “hey, I think you’re pretty neat, but I respect your distance.” There’s bears out here, there’s mountain cougars, and biting goats.

Nope not weird at all. Bass and salt water stuff sux. In-fisherman has been a disapointment since Al Left IMHO.  Back to the hunting shows Shockey is about the only one I can stomach anymore.

Actually I just tend to speak my mind....I really don't care who does or doesn't like it.

Watching hunting shows is akin to watching paint dry....I give the edge to the paint.

The Huntley Way,Eastmans Outdoor Journal, and Tred Barta are great shows to watch.  The Crush is good for obvious reasons.  However, any hunting show done in texas  or africa makes me turn the channel. The Nudge gets the nod too just becuase of him.

Tony Deans tv show should have been on the radio because all he did was talk. Very little pertinent infomation shared. He fished with a buddy and talked for a half hour. Funny thing, never did see him eat a Puggsley!

I witnessed IMO the worst hunting DVD I've ever seen this past weekend, Drury Outdoors, absolutely garbage.
Shockey aint bad, The nudge is the man with the "spirit of the wild" by his side along with Fred Bear, also Tiffany is a babe. All obvious information and would watch all three over a house, private practice, or CSI episode.

The Bucks of Tacomonte (sp?) is by far the worse show out there.  Drury is bad, but I still watch it where as the bucks of tacomonte I turn my tv to HGTV right away.
