Okay now I know this is going to ruffle some feathers but flame all you want… Today I was watching some Billy Bob hunting program on the tube and I seriously started to wonder, “What the hell happened to the sport of hunting". After I watched Billy Bob ride his ATV 30 miles to setup his scent traps, tree blinds, decoys, scouting cameras, food plot mixes, etc, etc... put on his "hey look, I’m a tree" camo, screw with his $2000 rifle's $1000 scope, and start using his calls and scent blockers, all I could think to myself was where is the challenge? What are we going to hand down to the next generation? Will they learn hunting skills or should we just take our kids to the store and show them what to buy so they can go bag an animal. In this age of hunting technology I think we need to ask ourselves, Are we really passing down to our children the basic skills of hunting such as stalking, knowing how to hunt the wind, scouting, reading sign, practicing with their equipment to know their limitations, etc… I haven’t watched a hunting show in quite some time, but it seems to me that they’re mostly about pushing products and showing how many food plots they can plant, so all they have to do is set up in blind on stilts and wait for a deer to come out and shoot it. Call me old fashioned (I’m 25) but I just seriously think the sport of hunting nowadays is nothing but a joke. Unless you can take your rifle, leave isle 7 from Gander Mtn. at home, and score your meal with nothing but knowledge and patience, you are not a hunter. If you want to use live animals for simple target practice, fine, but call it what it is.
