No. He never bow shot a deer on the video from Bellars Place.treehugger said:Heck no...I won't even watch him on TV anymore...when he comes on I change it. I haven't seen this video yet have you? I saw one of his shows before all this came out and I think I remember him saying they were hunting in IN. He was bow hunting and I seem to remember him shooting the deer and it was almost dark out. Do you know if this the footage from Bellar?
Yep... but look deeper into what is fueling that. There has to be a motive behind the reason why people will pay exorbitant amounts of money to kill a record deer.treehugger said:WHY???
I'm assuming $$$$$.
Who is it that is watching these shows?treehugger said:I agree (did I say that?) to a certain degree there is a segment of "hunters", and I use that word loosely, that do and will resort to this type of tactic for taking big game animals. It is driven home more and more by the "hunters" on TV that take big game after big game on supposed hunts leading people to believe that fenced hunting is legit. A prime example is Alan Warren who seems to do a majority of his hunting on Texas hunting ranches, fenced Texas hunting ranches over feeders. I know it's legal to hunt over feeders in some states but that leaves a bad taste in my mouth. I know the TV shows are money driven by advertisers but all this comes at a price to the integrity of hunting. I am optimistic however, that the majority of real hunters would never stoop to the level that some other "hunters" have in regards to fenced hunts. I still believe that most hunters do and will continue to do the right thing when it comes to ethically taking a big game animal. FAIR CHASE is the only legitimate and ethical way to take big game and/or other game in the field.
