Watched it last night, and I agree with all above. Quality show. Branlin has a real gift for turning the locals into real people rather than just stage props. Interesting corner of the world. Some of the fiercest fighting of WWII took place between the Australians and Japanese in exactly the same areas they were hunting - stopping the Japanese offensive toward Port Moseby and then pushing them back up and over the Owen Stanley Mtns to the area they will be hunting water buffalo next week. The conditions those troops fought in were horrific, and looking at the terrain those deer call home, one can see why.
I am conflicted over redneck hunting TV. I can't watch it. That said, it helps maintain interest in our sport among a large swath of our population. We probably need all the friends we can get.
Excellent points and well said.
I totally agree with you.
Also, I wish the laughing high fivers and shriekers could see that they are re-affirming what the anti-hunting/depression suffering emotional wrecks think of us.
