    If you read the rest of the posts, many people mention many tv shows, I was not the first to point out mistakes from other TV shows, internet or TV. Bad show is bad show whether it's one from the original post or other posts. Big / small mistake is in the eye of the beholder, but thank you for your reply. I respect your opinion just like anyone else's.

    Good clarification - never named, but well described - and described in a way that makes listing it along with HT not very helpful in my view. But we can agree t disagree.

    LMAO, that's really funny.

    I still like the show though. The only thing I don't get is the Mtn Ops BS.

    I may be an ass, probably am. Think complaining about a Hunt Talk video on the Hunt Talk forum is classless!

    Wait...so it's classy to come on a forum and slam other videos/tv shows, but you have to exclude the ones of the forum you are on? Right...yeah, that makes sense. I'm here to treat people equal, someone asked me to expand on FT because I mentioned them, I did that and now you think I'm classless, well tough, I provided what was asked for just like others on this thread did. Seriously...get over yourself, class has zero to do with it. I'm done with defending myself on this thread, all hunting shows have issues, you can all discuss it more without this "classless" member I guess.

    Just curious if you're going to throw your sucker in the dirt, hold your breath, or stomp your feet for an encore?

    You could have made the decision to just not respond to the thread...ever consider that option? You condemn others for their opinions...about your opinions, if you don't like it, keep them to yourself or man up and take your lumps. Sword cuts both ways...

    I don't think I have watched any hunting show on either of the 2 outdoors channels I have since I 1st got tv.
    I watch most of BF's stuff,Meateater, & a few other podcasts I follow.
    I can only take so many ads & behavior I do not do not condone.

    ...cracker croaking alliteration.

    dad gum it = god damn it
    sidewinding = The action of avoiding a promise that has been made beforehand by shifting the conversation topic to something else. To squirm out of a deal.
    bushwhacking = to lie in wait", "to ambush", "to assault".
    hornswoggling = get the better of (someone) by cheating or deception.
    cracker croaker = not entirely sure, but "croaker" can be defined as a person who grumbles or habitually predicts evil.
    rouin = ruin
    bishen cutter = not even a clue here. Some people have quoted this part very differently, most commonly as "biscuit-cutter"

    Its because of crappy hunting shows that I largely turned away from watching Outdoor Channel and the like. Doing so, many years ago, resulted in a sort of Rip Van Winkle awakening for me last fall when I renewed my interest in hunting (hunted since about 1985 and dabbled in it from about 2003 on but never stayed really serious about it due to kids' sports, job issues and other priorities)

    I can't begin to tell you how Fresh Tracks, Meateater and BRO's "Land of the Free" series has changed, in a positive way, my attitude and enthusiasm about hunting.

    I learned about Hunt Talk and Fresh Tracks when I was searching for information on how to field dress critters leading up to my antelope hunt last year. It had been many, many years since I'd shot anything and field dressed it and I wanted to refresh my memory on how to do it.

    Finding Randy's videos and seeing him with the MR meat-hauling backpack, which I didn't know existed, and the trekking poles, which screamed out to me since I'm over 50 and find tight contour lines to be more and more challenging, and his attitude of "you'll run out of health before you run out of money" changed my attitude from a "damn how am I ever going to get that critter back to the truck" to " I can't freaking wait to get up in the morning and go to the gym, can't wait for the next day in the field scouting, and can't wait until Aug 30th when hunting season opens". "Empowered" is the word I think fits the best to describe where I'm at now.

    I really really appreciate Randy's, Steve's and the BRO's efforts in showing guys like me new (to me at least) ways to accomplish the goal of filling tags and freezers. And even though he doesn't have a show that I know of, Corey Jacobson deserves special mention for his Elk 101 program, IG Feed, and his appearances in on other's shows.

    I'll add the podcasts that these guys do to the list too......like listening to a book-on-tape while at the gym or driving long-distance.
