TV Hunting and Camermen

I was watching a show tonight and it really hit me how difficult it must be to do some of these shows with a camerman in tow.  Hard enough to hunt alone let alone with a camera man filming behind you.

Yeah I cannot see how they

Yeah I cannot see how they can pull it off especially when hunting elk from the ground with a bow.  I find it hard enough to move thru woods quietly alone let alone with a camerman or two and maybe even a guide in tow.  Then there is always waiting to make sure they have the "shot" beofre you can even take a shot.....could not do it.

Someone should do an episode

Someone should do an episode on the cameraman.  Think about some of the hunts where the hunter and guide are hustling up steep terrain to get the shot.  There is a cameraman behind them keeping up while hauling heavy camera gear and keeping everything focused.  A real unsung hero job if you ask me.

Well, believe it or not, alot

Well, believe it or not, alot of that is done after the fact.  All the "stalking", everything, is reenacted.  Plus, the cameras these guys use nowadays are not very big at all.  heck, if they can make an Iphone that has HD quality video in it, it doesn't need to be much bigger to produce TV quality footage.  It would almost be like hunting with a guide.  Just having someone tag alone.

Well just great, burst my

Well just great, burst my ballon that these guys were doing something special. I guess you're right about the new equipment, but it still adds to the challenge.  I wonder how much is done after the fact, but I am sure you're right since I can't believe they get away with all the talking and moving they do while on stand.
