Default Ruining Hunting

I was watching Jay Gregories show(Hunting expert lol) and theres a buck under his tree.They then pan the camera and he has two machines in his tree that suck up his scent and i burst out laughing.He goes on to tell people about this ozonic machine nonsense. I could care less whether they work or not this is not hunting and i truly feel we are losing the pure joy of hunting and what its all about.My god these guys already basically hunt on petting farms now they need these stupid contraptions.Complete Joke

I'm with you Spiker, way too much junk out there for huntin' anymore. I've gotten to the point where I don't even watch those people (pro hunters??!!??LOLOLOL) anymore. I realize that some of them are good at what they do, but for the most part I think that they are way better at self promotion. Good example, last year Bill Jordan and his entourage hunted for a whole week just a few miles from where I hunt in south Illinois. Looked like a small invasion force, but bottom line is they killed nothin' all week. Makes a big difference when they hunt the same ground that the average guy gets to hunt. But back to your original deal, you are right, there are way too many gizmos out there.

what alot of people don't realize is that these supposed "hunting ranches" are becoming very very very widespread. They are EVERYWHERE. Heck here where I live, I only knew of one that is within 60 miles of me, but come to find out there's at LEAST 5 total.
You guys are exactly right when you say they are hunting on deer farms. I think it's stupid, but I have to admit, sometimes I do enjoy watching SOME of the shows. I like the drury boys and I believe they actually do real hunting- sometimes.
Jay Gregory talks too much. I don't mind his hunting, but yap yap yap yap yap.
the one I can't stand to watch is David Morse. Talk about an arrogant, egotistical human being. Sure on TV he looks harmless, but just by the way he talks to people on there I can tell he's a JERK in real life. He's a BIG time farm hunter. Heck he probably has 20-30, 180in bucks released the night before his BIG hunt the next day. LOL

Boy you hit that one Tator. I thought of starting on David Morse in my post but didn't feel like typing for an hour or getting lit up. I've watched that show several times and always the same crap, sit in a tree hotel and blaze deer that come out the same time every day in the same place, which would be that nice mowed and baited strip of ground. I will never understand that stuff.

Technology has been forced upon us from all sides. That said, when it comes to hunting you can be as basic as you chose to be... 30-30 Model 94, iron sights, no food plot, no fancy scent eliminators/buck bombs, no trail cams, just your wits against theirs. Being able to read the lay of the land, the wind and put yourself in the right place at the right time.
