If any of you are looking for a good DVD to buy get anything by "Tines Up"  very real world hunting and shed hunting.  There stuff is not all done up with the cheesy reanactments.  Those shots are the worst part of hunting shows.
Those are good.  I've still got a couple I borrowed from Jiffy.


guns you're mistaken, the one you borrowed is called "Ti*s Up" and the "shots" in that video are worth seeing over and over and over......

I'm with Jiffy on most of these shows.!  Some are OK.  We only just got the Outdoor Channel a few months ago and here's my impression of too many of them, for what its worth!   Probably not much.....but here goes....
Seems like most of them start out by simply BS'ing and joking and Har Har ing, then they get a ride out to a fully enclosed stand via a brand new well washed 4X4, then sit till some well trained animal arrives to eat the bait, then gets shot after trying to build a bit of suspense by whispering, etc and acting like they are really doing something difficult!.  Then a whole bunch of high fiving and whooping which must disgust a lot of hunters and even more neutral non hunters assuming some watch it, as if they just accomplished something special or difficult to do!    Then the inevitable "score" bragging stuff!   If shot by a 'muzzleloader', its always a modern in line with a scope, and some seem to bait to 20 yards then shoot ewith a high powered scope sighted rifle!  Huh??   
I've been watching some of these shows, and surprisingly to me, I saw several where then animals were hit (IMHO) too far back and the arrows didn't seem to penetrate more than a few inches, the animals ran away, then were displayed later on as "harvested!"   Huh?  The arrow penetrated only a few inches on one deer, then fell out?? 
Then there's the predictable 'tracking him" scenes, and surprise!!  There he is!!!  Wow!!  More hooting and hollering and high fives and yelling about 'scores!'     Severe rigor mortis with one or two animals even!    At the end there's always a commercial for the outfitter and a testimony or two.  
Actually, Shockey's, the few I've seen, seem pretty good.  Most seem to involve hunting as well as shooting.   There are some others that are pretty good.   The ones produced by John A in ND are pretty darned good too!    Baiting for bear hunting is about the only way to get them in heavy brush, but I sure get tired of whitetail after whitetail after whitetail down in Texas!   
With a lot of those shows, I'm sure with Jiffy!   Almost had to go to the ER and see Luveyes the other day for an antinauseant shot after watching one in particular!  LOL

I prefer to actually hunt and fish, not watch someone else do it.  When I get back to ND I will always have something better to do than watch a hunting or fishing show.  I can plant a tree or check on the ones already planted, grab my fishing gear and go fishing, hunt for sheds, clean guns, and if all else fails.....look at the honey dew list.

Jiff doesnt like em because of that best of the west show.  Them boys show em up with them Jap optics.  

Now back to the shows - I really dont like the ones that show the bullet impact or arrow impact.  Why not show the shot from the Hunters aspect and then the animal down.  Why show the suffer part --- why give the no hunting huggers more ammo.  Why not show the gutting part.

Next one is some guy sitting in a blind or whatever and shoots a big game animal.  First thing he does is whew!  Like the F####er was sweating over sitting in that blind.  Why not just look at the camera and smile and go out and get to the animal to get it cleaned.       

Stay thirsty my friends

Yep, gotta throw in the Whew stuff, do some whispering and heavy breathing.  Only thing missing is the guy pi$$ing his pants.

I think its hard to fit a whole lot of useful information and footage into a half hour show, so they're all pretty cookie cutter:  stroke the sponsors, show some footage, stroke the sponsors, shoot the animal, stroke the sponsors, grab the horns, & stroke the sponsors to end the show.

I do watch them, but I only have versus (which sucks) and there usually isn't anything else on worth watching on the weekends AND  I HATE TO PAINT.

I do enjoy watching Mike Hanbach on Versus.  He seems very knowledgeable and down-to-earth, and gets excited and genuinely appreciates the animals and his good fortune to hunt for a living.  He also occasionally lets a few bad words slip out which I think is funny and keeps the show real.

I liked Tony Dean himself but his show was really boring. Dialogue and very little insight on presentation, I always waited to see him catch fish with a lindy rig tipped with a pugsley sandwich.

Not many good shows out there, lots of actors and folks pimping everything under the sun.

But I really do like these guys shows, I usually cringe when I see folks coming here but they sure do film things the way they should be and not a bunch of fakey acting garbage.

enjoy

Jimmy Houston and Keith Warren sure are tough to beat! No two hosts like em. Good quality shows IMHO.
The kill is the satisfying, indeed essential, conclusion to a successful hunt. But, I take no pleasure in the act itself. One does not hunt in order to kill, but kills in order to have hunted. Then why do I hunt? I hunt for the same reason my well-fed cat hunts...because I must, because it is in the blood, because I am the decendent of a thousand generations of hunters. I hunt because I am a hunter.- Finn Aagard

There is one cool show I like I have only gotten to see it a couple times but its something like Red Arrow. The dude is nuts with a long bow. He hunts everything with it even birds. Its cool to see him shoot.

Haha, jimmy houston and keith warren.  Fox, don't make fun of them. They just ate too much c'mere deer.  That's not their fault.  I do enjoy the Eastman Hunting Journal and Shockey does have a pretty decent show.  I could be forced to give up any secret if i was strapped down and forced to watch Huntin the World Southern Style or Journal of the Texas Trophy Hunters, both of which are an insult to the sport of hunting. At least the Eastman boys do it real.

I do like shockeys show, but most of these hunting shows are about the same as the majority of the bowkills posted on this site.  Take away the trail cameras and the bait and reality will hit home real fast.

most are hard to watch but if you had the chance to do what they are doing would you? for most i would say yes. i know if i had the time, land, sponsors, etc. and foremost money i wouldnt be building houses, apt, and hotels. all a guy needs is money. lease some land do the things they do QDM, food plots and if everyone in surrounding properties has some sort of management plan yeah you will get the bucks that they do on the shows. i think this thread shows more jealousy than anything. if you dont like watching them...DONT. if you like watching them but think its produced badly...make your own. thats my penny for thought

I got one show recorded on DVR where a little girl shoots a buck with her scope cover on.  It is on before the shot and right after she shoots, it is still on.  She is a pretty good little actress too, shaking and all after the shot.  I guess it's possible she put the cover on directly after shooting but didn't seem likely.

I still watch a ton of them though.

I get a kick out of the scenes where there is a guy crawling etc. putting a "sneak" on a critter and the camera man is right in front of the hunter,  and then there is the talking scenes..... stupid
