Realtree Roadtrips....best hunting show episode to date!

Recommended Posts

DitchPickle13

The episode consists of two parts: "Newell Ranch Part 1" and "Newell Ranch Part 2."

Have you guys seen this!? Absolutely great...it catches the true essence of a hunt, not just the moments when a buck walks by.

Blake Shelton and Miranda Lambert(country music artists) are both featured on the show, as well as Ted Nugent...they are hilarious and very entertaining on the show. Check out the Outdoor Channel site to find out show times for the re-airs.

Michael Waddell, host, makes a great speech/rant about people like Blake, Miranda, and Ted standing up for hunters rights and not hiding their passion because they're in show-biz. Check it out if you haven't seen it!!

That is a great episode(s). Blake Shelton cracks me up when he is out shooting those wild hogs. I watch this show every chance i get and personally think it is one of the best hunting shows on TV!!!!!

They'll make a show in Northern MN as soon as someone put's up a big fence, buys some stock animals, put's out a pile of corn then sits in a fishhouse on stilt's to peg a fed deer for the camera. Hunting has really changed........and not for the better.

Sorry Buddy! I'll keep my thoughts to myself from now on. I just advocate fair chase.

Then you should enjoy the Realtree videos. You're statements regarding these shows not being fair chase are inaccurate.

They've been 100% fair chase for the past 5-6 years. No high fence hunts for quite some time. Now on the other hand they have access to some of the best hunting areas in the world as well as great outfitters. Having access to those situations may make many of us jealous. But lets not make statements like this without the facts.

But don't take my word for it. Do some research. I've known a few of the realtree pro staff for years and they are top notch folks.

I have a different standard than most . Sorry my opinion seems to upset. I don't bait. I don't use scent. I don't use artificial stands. I don't use anything but hunting skills. I rely on stalking skill and concealment. Can you (or your buddies with the cameras) meet that standard? Hunting is just that. Hunting, not trying to get an "edge" and make it easier to shoot a trophy animal like so many on TV. I shot an 11 point 6 YO buck in 2007 that went 303 lbs field dressed. Scored 142. No nothin' but slow walking and wind management. Good Luck to you and your "hunters". 3rd big buck in 30 years. It's not a yearly thing if you don't "cheat". Anybody can lure deer. Try doing it fair, one on one. You'll get a quick lesson.

I would like to see a picture of that 300 pounder. I shot a buck that dressed right at 200 and that was the biggest deer I have shot in 30 years.

If it's just hunting skills you use, than it's time to put away the high powered rifle with the high powered scope and the compound bow with carbon arrows and get out the long bow with the hand carved arrows and stone broadheads......See my post sounds as stupid as yours....thanks for bringing me down.

Fair chase and skill definitely have different meanings to everyone grin.gif

However, in my opinion, any time you can kill a mature deer you have done a number of things right. Still hunting and taking a deer that way is very satisfying; I have taken a few younger deer that way myself. It definitely takes a lot of time and patience.

However, finding the home of a mature deer, setting up a stand in the right location, and being there at the right time is also a very challenging task that takes a lot of time and effort. Either way, if you are lucky/skillful enough to outwit a mature deer, I feel thats a major accomplishment.

p.s. If we are really talking about fair chase, we should be buck naked chasing the deer down with rocks, sticks and whatever else we can devise grin.gifgrin.gifgrin.gif

Sorry for sounding stupid. I apologize to you for offending you. I have nothing intelligent to contribute to this site and have removed myself. You're right. Good Luck hunting for whatever you are after.

      Thanks, a day well spent with a good person for sure. Thanks again for the work you put in at the end of the trip!  Your fishing needs to get in better shape I think!😓
    • Wanderer
      You and that Senko were dialed in, no doubt about that!  I think if the wind wasn’t as harsh we could’ve explored the deeper water a little better and maybe got the jig bite dialed in on the hens.  Either way it was a fantastic fishing experience. Some day I’ll try a Senko - maybe. 😃   I think you’ll do very well there this weekend.  Thanks again for taking me with.  It was the best day of open water fishing I’ve had for some time, both fishing and partner wise.

      Made my wife move to the other side of the boat... Great weight shift!😅  Had to cook my own supper that night. ☹️

      Kinda quiet here.  Ive been out a number of times and have had a hard time finding anything consistent for active fish,  crappies or eyes.  Did ok this past weekend but fish were" one here and one there".  Cold front Sat. didn't help.  Looking forward to the weekend with some stable weather and a better bite.

      I opened up my by bass fishing season this past weekend with the great company of @Wanderer. The catch numbers were great by most respects.  Size was a little smaller on average than I had hoped, I kinda bragged up this little gem and size fell a bit short. 17 as approx the max size we boated on Sat. Fished seem to be in groups concentrated in certain areas, very scattered in between.  Our best action came fishing away from shore, better fish as well.  Plenty of fish were crusing on the shorelines as well they definitely ran smaller though. Wanderer was able to show me how to work a jig effectively as that has never been a tactic I am proficient at.  Thanks Wanderer.  I tried to show the ease and effectivenss of the Senko.   It all  work well as we probably boated over a hundred fish for the day. Everyone share your 2018 Bass experiences here, keep us in loop of what is working you!

      Thanks, James! That weather really put fish on the move. Our focus for the tournament was to get two big bites and catch a pair over 26". We felt like in order to do that we had to go west. We had a milk run of spots that were taking big wind so we just rotated through them during the day. Our fish came from 3'-13' casting jerkbaits, Rippin Raps and swimbaits. My dad had been catching a lot of walleyes on shallow rocks while pre-fishing for the bass tourney which really tipped us off on some locations and presentations. We only caught six walleyes during the tournament but they were the right ones. We feel unbelievably fortunate to have had such an awesome experience!
    • monstermoose78
      So so true @Borch!! I am excited to see this grow and read all the reports
    • Borch
      Great to see some good information flowing.  I'm looking forward to seeing more good reports and stories from even more of us in the forums and clubs.  Keeping the information flowing in both is essential. Thanks for all you do.
    • Rick
      We would like to recognize 4 of our best posters in the forums and the Minnesota Fishing Reports Club. I will be giving each one a special goodie, if they get into the right club soon enough. Special thanks goes to @IceHawk, @Borch, and @monstermoose78 for the contributions leading what will require a persistent high quality effort to make the Fishing Report Club a must stop spot for fishing information. The 4 TOP GUN anglers who have been amazingly consistent since we first opened up the Fishing report club are: @AlwaysFishing23, @ANYFISH2, @Jim Almquist, and @mrpike1973. I'd like you 4 to check the right club out to claim your goodie by next Monday. Yes it will pay to pay attention to what is going on in here. The fishing reports will just keep getting better. Keep your eyes open. More goodies will be given based on different criteria, like best stories in the forums and clubs, best pictures, best videos, and more. We're looking for more Official Fishing Report Team members. If you are interested, message me. Have fun and enjoy the ride.
