Hunting Shows

I have been a hunter for 35 years now however I have not been able to go much over the last few years with the way things are. I find myself watching more hunting shows on TV and have come to notice, as many I know have, that the majority of deer hunting shows really do not depict true deer hunting, well at least what I grew up with. I understand the hosts of these shows have to promote their sponsors and deer hunting has become a Billion Dollar industry.

I have found these shows to be humorous at best and in my opinion really do not depict true hunting and the hunters on them are not really hunting but culling a genetically enhanced, domesticated herd. With that said I am looking for shows or more importantly videos that show more of true hunting that I can enjoy with my son when I am not out showing him the ropes. Can anyone recommend some good videos or shows? Espically ones on still hunting which is the main way I hunt, I enjoy loosing weight when I hunt.

Thank you in advanced.

I don't know where you live

I don't know where you live but here in Ohio there is a hunting team that puts out video's every year. They call themselves The Slunger Hollow Boys. You can find their video's at slungerhollow.com

There are alot of bucks, does, and other game animals taken on these video's. Many of them are with the youth. Most of the bucks taken on these video's probably range between 120"-150" which is more of a reality for the common hunter. They are a very family oriented bunch of people and I do know them personally. Check them out.

I checked the website out. Good prices on the videos, may have to purchase a couple of them. Do you know which are the better videos?

I really liked I think it was season 3 and 4. But like I said they are all very good.

I watched a similar one last night and loved it, never seen it before.  It was called "For the love of the hunt" or something like that, it was on Versus.  It was a husband, wife, and kid.  They were in PA last night hunting whitetail, shooting does pretty much the whole episode.  They even talked about getting kids into hunting, letting them shoot whatever they want as long as it's legal.   Showed his kid shooting at a few fox squirrels with a bow, pretty cool.

Don't know if it's like that in every episode, but that seems to be the context of the show.

Geterdone-          I agree

Geterdone-

         I agree 100%. I like the shows that are public land DIY hunt, those to me are the real deal hunts and dipict accurate hunting.

Hunting Canada and Beyond

"Hunting Canada and Beyond" is my favourite. I think its about as close as you're going to get to an unfiltered weekly hunting show. And of course I'm not biassed just because Jason Petersen is a good Saskatchewan boy from up my neck of the woods...

I did like the show better when they had less of a budget and were forced to confine themselves to hunts that I might realistically be able to do - it was part of the appeal

"Canada in the Rough" isn't bad either, but I'd like to see how he does on an unguided hunt.

I don't think you're ever going to get away from the sponsorship thing...it costs a lot of money just to film, produce and market a show - never mind all the associated hunting costs especially for some of the "sexier" episodes. There's those that do it well, and there's those that turn their show into a 30 minute info-mercial.
