No comments on him yet. He used to be one of my favorite hunters. That video of him bashing his camera man is terrible. And the poaching what the eff. Not a guy I would endorse.

Fwiw

First few times I watched his shows I didn't care for it, with his amped up attitude and his "BOOYAH!!" saying. Then It sort of grew on me and was sort of funny to watch and entertaining, he is a really good shot to and that was fun to see some of the stuff he would do.

But, after seeing these two videos, what a prick. I would say the cameraman had enough of it...how do you think those videos came to surface. Good for that cameraman to apparently keep his cool in the blind and then really get the last laugh in.

He always rubbed me the wrong way, product whore, too many catch phrases, trying too hard.


Maybe, just once, someone will call me 'Sir' without adding, 'You're making a scene.'

Yup this is a good one to get flushed out of the system. Just and idiot. I don't get how the camera man just keeps filming.

If you are fooled by any of the celebrity hunters then you are just that..a fool. They exploit our sport so they can be famous, rich, and not have a real job. Theyre all a joke...

Not all of them. I really enjoy Steven Rinelllas stuff and Randy Newberg.

A friend of mine had to shoot with him at an ASA shoot last year. 20 targets.

Said he (Brackett) was bragging about himself non stop, and he actually was not very good shooting 3D.

I would agree the market is flooded with wanna be's.

But running a multi million dollar business like Real Tree, or Mossy Oak, or Primos is a real job. I imagine you use some of their products. I know I couldn't hunt without some of the innovations they have create over their careers. Can't fault them at all for combining what they love with a career that supports their families.

I'm in the same boat as you. I used to watch a lot of these hunting shows, and there are still a few that are tolerable. When I was younger I would set unrealistic expectations from watching these shows and it really soured some of my hunting experience, so I'm glad I got away from that. Most of these guys seem more like pop star celebrities than hunters, pimping products and acting like idiots all while bastardizing our sport. I get that hey have to have some product placement to pay the bills, but it has gone way overboard IMO. To me hunting is about a whole lot more than big antlers, stupid catch phrases, and buying the most expensive trendy products.

I wonder if there are any programs out there with regular guys hunting either small private tracts or public land, as most of us have to do. Would love to hear it if anyone knows of any. I used to really like Bill Winke and Midwestern Whitetail, but haven't watch it in a while. He at least didn't act like a drunk frat boy when he harvested an animal and actually put a lot of good info out on different tactics and setups. Not sure if it is still that way or not but I might have to check him out again.

As far as with Brackett guy, never heard of him and never plan to. Happy hunting.

As maxx said earlier, Randy Newburg is IMO one of the most "average joe" hunting show personality/host out there at the moment. He's on "Fresh Tracks". The Holder family on "Raised Hunting" is okay as well. Ususally a life lesson with each show as a theme which can be a bit much if all you are looking for is hunting.

Steven Rinella. He is, in my opinion, the best hunter on TV, podcasts, the internet, or a bookshelf right now.
His site:
http://www.themeateater.com/

On Netflix, if you have it just search for "Meat Eater." Totally legit, huge emphasis on the cooking aspect (largely left off other shows). Life lessons for sure in there, interesting other characters.

I have read all his books as well, very fascinating author. He has great humility while just oozing with knowledge about history/wildlife/methods.

I once flipped on Arrow Affliction one time not knowing what it was. I think I made it maybe 10 minutes in. What a tool.

Exhibit A - who takes a promo photo like this?


He seems like a former high school wrestler that's still juicing it or something. I've heard from those who have met him in real life at 3d shoots and various outdoor exhibitions and they say he is just the douchelord you would think he is.

Bill is still down to earth good guy but he hunts a way most of us cant. Good for him he has 1000 acres to hunt and he is uber careful on how he goes in and out. I don't have the time or ground to hunt like him so I have to use my own tactics that wouldn't mesh up with him. Most people have to be a little more aggressive than a lot of these guys.

I like listening and watch John Dudleys stuff because he is very knowledgeable on archery but he also hunts like this but the dude can hunt every day of the season.
