    Hey I was just wondering how you guys decided to start your own Web cast and if some of the pro staffers are lucky enough to have the Web show be their job. How'd you get started what made you want to get started ect..

    Love the show guys
    Bowhunt or die!

    While I'm not sure exactly how the show started, I do know that none of the prostaffers hunt for a living. (including Justin & Todd)

    Well we had been filming our hunts for a few years and putting up short clips of our adventures on Bowhunting.com. One day Todd decided he wanted to turn what we were doing into a show format and when I walked into the office he said "We're doing a show! We just need a name." At the time I had been toying around with making some Bowhunt or Die t-shirts to sell at trade shows so I threw it out and there and we went with it. The rest, as they say, is history.

    And no, unfortunately none of us get to do this full time for a living. Contrary to popular belief there isn't a whole lot of money to be made in the hunting industry unless you're a hot chick. :busted:

    Well, there's money to be made. Just not by the "Talent." :whip:

    Don't you and Todd work for BH.com for a living though? Not hunting but hunting related

    Yes and no.

    Our "real" jobs are running ICS Solutions and Rhino Group. Running Bowhunting.com is about 10-15% of what I do on a day-to-day basis and while it helps put a little extra hunting gear in the back of my truck it doesn't pay the mortgage or put food on the table.

    I thought I recognized him! I really thought he was selling vacuum cleaners.
