"Queer Eye for the LongRange Hunter"
LMAO. Not sure how to respond. Sounds like it should be under the long range optics section to me.

It is on Dishnetwork's mens channel. I recorded the latest one to air but have not had a chance to watch it.

Re: Best Of The West

Its so funny in this country how people are sold on the BS that a 450 shot on an
elk by an experienced rifleman is unsportsmanlike and inhumane.

Go to any thoroughbred racetrack in the country (the only country that runs horses on dirt!) and horses are breaking down all the time. They scrape the track to get "record" race times without any regard to the horses well being!!!

But long range hunters are inhumane?!

Queer eye for the long range hunter... sound like a challenge for any New York City Gay bar....
THe ability to spot a fine ***** in any nightclub of 10,000 sq ft or more!

Hey guys I'm not saying that John program is not good or shouldn't be aired on Public TV .. I just think it could cause more headaches than anticipated... My personal preference is not to have EVERYONE interested in LR hunting .. just those who are genuinely capable both mentally and monetarily...
I grew up in a state that had 1.3 million hunters who are easily pursuaded by what they see. MOst have the mentality "if they can do it so can I" I can't tell you how many hunters I saw "lob lead" at deer. Basically using the SWAG method...( scientific wild-ass guess)
Not that I am in the business of marketing or producing this stuff, but I'd like to see it in the hands of people who can handle it...

hope I made sense...

Re: Best Of The West

A hunting program on TV ? Interesting concept .Here in Oz something like that would be howled out of existence after the first episode . For the past 20 years most of our city folk have regarded anyone who hunts or owns a firearm as a deranged redneck . Media commentators and soapie writers take every opportunity to show hunters in a bad light . Hunting simply isn't politically correct in the eyes of our urban majority , most of whom think meat is "made" at the butcher shop.
You guys have all this to look forward to .

Re: Best Of The West

Thanks for the interest in our show. Thought I might address the concerns voiced here.

1. Terry was on his first bull elk hunt and first horseback hunt. He did use the reins to tie the horse up but I fixed the situation as soon as my horse was tied up. Seems like a pretty minor thing.

2. There was no wind on the 450 yd shot so we didn’t discuss it. As you mentioned we did discuss it during the shooting practice. Remember we only have about 22 minutes of content during a show so we can’t cover everything repeatedly.


You must really go through a lot of wrangler/guides if you fire one every time an inexperienced hunter does something wrong. I always felt that was the purpose of the guide was to help the hunter out when he does something wrong?

I am also curious how you would go about making sure the info only gets in the hands of people “who can handle it”. Do you know of someone who is able to judge this type of thing?


That new four year old is a mountain eating son of a gun.

Thanks again Guys

I am off on an antelope hunt and we start filming sheep hunts on the first of September so I might not get back for a while.
