    I like this idea a lot!! As much as I love bowhunting.com I venture off onto midwestwhitetail.com and they have a set up like this. There are shows rolling in almost every day from different regions. Most of them are no longer then 15 minutes just because it may simply be an update how people are doing; it’s not always about the kills. Then with this idea I know how much people like to see hunts from their home state, so it may be a way to fill in that spot also. Big bucks don’t just come from the mid west

    When I watch a show I am expecting a few things or I feel like I am wasting my time. I look for entertainment, animals being shot and learning something that I can use in my own hunting situations. I dont see where a new hunter has any of that to offer except maybe the entertainment factor where you can see them do something stupid...laugh and remember oh yeah I did that before.

    I think the point being made is...

    That its becoming redundent to watch "big name" hunters kill 190" deer...3x in every episode. Its just not realistic...fair chase or not. The "average" joe gets that moment once or twice in a lifetime...not every hunt.

    Just my .02. A change of pace show would be cool.

    I see what you are saying and I like to watch others hunt and it doesnt have to be a GIANT either, but we can watch shows like Bow Hunt or Die with hunters that have experience to share.

    I think for a show as I mentioned previously to be successful, it would have to have more than one hunter. Maybe a team of new bow hunters. Throw in a rifle guy or gal turned bow only, a guy or gal with little to no hunting experience, a guy or gal that has some experience with a kill or few under their belt but, no buck and a coach of sorts to teach them and viewers at home some things. Do archery shooting tips along with hunting tips sections for each show. NONE being hunting superstars and not all young hunters nor a bunch of old guys. Do a mix of ages. Use sponsors like G5, Athens Archery or some other non-mainstream bow manufacturers or a few different ones (I would love to see some bow companies get along for a change), Black Eagle arrows, and others. Talk tech about things such as spine, arrow weight, FOC, properly set up bows and why it's all important. Make it a learning and entertaining show, not some boring, mundane "I smoked my 10th giant of the season" show. Add a segment or two showing the guys/gals shooting a 3D tournament or two and talk about the advantages of shooting them (it would help 3D grow some) Maybe even get a local shop or a few involved that they go visit every now and then.

    Make it about the whole life style of a bow hunter/archer, not just sitting in a stand that your $10,000.00 paid outfitter hung for you just to land that big guy that they reserved just for the publicity on the show. Do all that without turning it into a Duck Dynasty reality show. (Robertson's, please don't take that negatively, I love you guys)

    Just my thoughts on what I would enjoy watching. I bet most hunters would love a show like that.

    Well guys we do read all your suggestions and such and we thank you for your input. Just so you all know, the whole staff are just a bunch of working class guys just like you, we have members as low as 14 years old, I dont know of any that pays outfitters to hunt, just guys on there lease, public or private ground. There will be post season happenings as well as pre season leading up to it. Keep the suggestions rolling in!

    You guys are all chubs ;)

    I think alot of the comments (i know mine) were directed towards big-tv type hunting shows. The bone collectors, the drurys, ect...

    Mine too.

    I know I started the post off about BH.com pro staff but, when I was referring to producing a show it was for TV not a web show.

    I respect the BH.com hunting staff and know they are normal guys who love to hunt. I hope no one took my comments directed towards any of the staff here on the site.

    I would fit the bill. Never shot a deer with my bow. But I have with a shotgun. However I don't think I'm eligible. I live in nj and I'm 13
