Loosing respect for Uncle Ted...

11730 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...

Hunters kill to eat. This is good. I encourage the killing of all legal game animals for food. I don't care if the person doing the killing, is doing it on easy prey or one that is difficult to bag. Matters not to me if it's in a fence, a backyard, a wilderness area or the local slaughter house. As long as it's legal, hunt them and shoot them, anyway and anywhere you want.

It's real easy to judge someone as not much of a hunter, but remember, however you choose to kill your animals, someone else looks at your method as not sporting enough. That is, unless you're jumping out of trees onto the backs of your quarry with nothing but a loincloth on and a flint knife in your hand. Now, that's real hunting. Everything else is just pretending.

Chickens, with a bat? Reminds me of my younger days. I'm afraid I might not be successful, they can be kind of quick. Do you mind if my chickens are in a cage?

Too bad Texas is so far from New York. ;)
