    Maybe, depends on if the participants are told ahead of time just exactly what goes on.

    I suspect many aren't really told the whole story until after they show up. There's probably a reason why a lot of the notable "shooters" are "one and done".

    I'll turn your question around.
    Just because these participants are "representatives" of Weatherby, Ruger, Cabelas, and Coors - they shouldn't be included in this "witch hunt"? Titans of the industry.........................
    Nice choice of buzz phrase, by the way

    If people like Rinella listened to every random self-proclaimed local expert that warned them about something, they'd probably be afraid to get out of bed. I'll be curious to see if he participates again, but my sense is he (and probably a good number of other past participants) didn't recognize the depth of weirdness with this event prior to showing up. There would need to be a few more skeletons falling from his closet for my assessment of him to change.

    Note the 79'th annual part. Obviously, plenty of prior knowledge of this event existed - self proclaimed local expert opinions needn't play a part....
    No real dog in this fight - but it is an interesting "sportsmens/womens" related topic, given the popularity of the hunting spokesperson - see how it all pans out..........

    Not sure there is anything to be said about that. It is not taking tags away from other hunters and it does not appear to have any weird racial traditions that the one shot appears to have. I personally do not live or hunt in farm country, but if you have a problem with that then you are going to be kicking a lot of hunters out of the boat. It is no different than hunting mule deer on a private ranch, roosters in farm country, etc.

    FWIW, he didn’t participate in 2018.
