    I have already received a reply from C'Mere Deer/Swhacker. They are going to forward my e-mail to the host of the show. Obviously, the people at C'Mere Deer/Swhacker don't get it. As long as there are sponsors supporting this kind of crap, they'll continue to put it on the air. The e-mail I sent in reply tried to explain this. Let's all hope it's understood.

    Got a reply from a representative of the Pursuit Channel. He refused my request to allow me to post our e-mail conversation on here so that everyone could read it for themselves. Basically, he said they were aware of my concerns, and that they would take measures to make sure things like this didn't happen again. He also made several excuses for the "hunters" in question, and basically said "that's hunting." The people at C'mere Deer/Swhacker forwarded my e-mail to the host of the show Bloodlines. That's about all they did. The reply I received from the host was basically just aggression, self-defense, and questioning my being a man. He also implied that I am closed minded if I saw the show in any light other than the one they intended. I requested that I be allowed to use his e-mail here, and forward it on to his sponsors and the people at the Pursuit Network. So far, no reply. He assured me that in 25 years of hunting, he's only had a handful of complaints about his shows. It's funny though, if you have nothing to hide or be ashamed of, you never seem to worry about people repeating what you've said or done..........

    Were not on tv though, they would be very strict on such things I would imagine.

    I think I have seen that show ONCE!!! Here's the thing for me. I don't need to see a show where the damn host CAN'T hunt him/herself as they are always on a ranch of some sort where they are allowed to do everything ILLEGAL (at least it would be here in NY) and of course they get the "trophy" they're after. It's not hunting in my opinion. At that point it's just another day on the farm and they go shoot their dinner. Nothing wrong with having alot of land and making alittle money to have people hunt on your land I suppose and most do indeed take only the mature animals, but really???? That's not hunting to me. I have seen very few shows that are of actual hunting .... it's a blatant slap in the face to us hunters who are out in sub zero temps because we WANT to hunt and some NEED to hunt. I just don't get the big deal over trophy deer and such. I'm not shooting an animal because of the size of the antlers!! That opportunity to take a buck like that will come eventually. I know my ethics and I know I won't shoot a deer that's young. I try to take only mature bucks and some years, I go without a kill. Not the best hunting here in NY, but ya deal with the cards you're dealt. I still enjoy it.
    For this guy to question your "manhood" and have the responses you got shows me that THEY are NOT hunters and the producers/channel don't have a clue either .... I would boycott all of the sponsors that are listed or mentioned on the show. You put up a list and I'll make sure I take a video of their products ( if I own any) destroy them on the video and upload it and send it to the company letting them know that they aren't doing us hunters a favor by endorsing these morons!!! I'm not scared to show the world that there are such things as ethics when it comes to hunting!!! This post really struck a nerve with me and I'm sorry to ramble on. I know what the OP is talking about because I have seen a few "hosts" also wound animals and think it's funny .... not cool!!!
    THIS SPACE IS RESERVED FOR WHEN I BECOME A STAFF SHOOTER!!!!
