Loosing respect for Uncle Ted...

11726 286
As I am sitting here writting this, Ted's final song is ending on the Outdoor Channel....Very disappointing.:(
He just killed a nice axis buck from a blind. Awesome right.
Well, when he was starting to track the deer after a great shot, he stopped to talk to the camera (along with the two observers he had with him), as he was talking you could see a couple of deer about 20 yrds. behind him walking through the trees. He turned around and saw this, turned to the camera and said something like "We could do some stalking here as well". Well, you probably could since they looked tame enough to feed out of your hand!:mad:
Then when he got to the deer, he was talking to the camera again, and more deer went behind him about 50-75yrds.
I can understand, that hunting exotics here in the U.S. your going to be hunting fenced animals. I am right about this ain't I? But to tell you the truth, I would have rather seen him shoot a big old doe in a fair chase situation than shoot what probably was some kids pet that he raised for Ted to pay to shoot.
Now don't get me wrong, I'm not stupid, I know a lot of what you see on TV is in fenced areas, but I don't want to see them wondering around looking at you when go to get it with the camera!
Sorry guys, just had to vent...

Just curious Chris. Have you ever been to Texas?

They are not blessed with the public land access that you and I have. I've never hunted on private land and the idea of paying someone to hunt on their property is totally foreign to me.

HOWEVER, I have spent considerable time in both Montana and Texas. Paying to hunt on someones ranch is commonplace in both states. I see nothing on that promotes highfence hunts, albeit I'm sure there are a few. In my visits to Texas I could not believe the lack of public land. The ONLY way you get to hunt is own the ranch or lease rights to hunt on it. Deer Texas' site appears to make it easy to do and is a great idea.

I don't really have a side in this disagreement, but the record needs to be made clear that hunting in all parts of the country is EXTREMELY different.
Criticizing those that don't have public lands available is rediculous.
