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...



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.



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.




Dud is great and full of knowledge for sure!! NockOn!
And a total class act!

Watch Bill Winke on MidwestWhitetail.com . Something new to watch almost every day, great analysis on what goes into their hunts, not product pushers, but there are some sponsorships that are to be expected. No commercials...just great content. I spend way too much time watching this.

I listen to a lot of his (Dud's) podcasts and watch his youtube videos.
Due to his advice I am completely target panic free after 20 years of dealing with it.
My shooting has improved dramatically.

Just checked out Meat Eater on Netflix last night, thought it was a really good show. Showed some hunts where things didn't go right and some they were unsuccessful on, which I think is cool. Plus I watched one of the cooking episodes and got some good ideas. Thanks for the info!

All these shows are becoming crazy. Your either a Hot Chic hunting or some celeb. I used to love watching this bird hunting show called Hunting with Hank. First exposure to Llewellin Setters, and Now i have owned two and love them. It was a down to earth show. Dez Young was a very nice guy from what i knew of him, he actually responded to my emails and chatted like we knew each other. Much different then the shows now. Don't get me wrong, I love watching hunting shows. MLB bowhunting, Meateater...etc.. I just think they have changed alot. Heck I remember watching Virgil Ward fishing! The World of Virgil Ward

LOL!!! We watched Virgil ward every Sunday I believe. How many times do you think he pulled those lead heads back and forth in that fish tank to show his "presentations"?!?! Loved it though... get back from church, mom would be frying last weekends catch, we'd watch Virgil Ward and then Dad would take us to the local gravel pit to catch another mess for mom to fry next Sunday!
