    Question Would you change equipment if you could be on tv?

    Would you use a sponsors product even if it wasnt what you personally like just to get on a tv hunting show? Just curious. I dont think I could do it. I have always used what I think is the best personally and dont think I would change for anyone.

    I wouldn't down grade my quality, but if someone wanted me to use their product and it was comparable to what I was using I would have no problem with that. Also, you never know how a product is going to perform until you give it a shot. More than once I have bought a piece of equipment under the premise of "I'll give it a shot". Some of those went back to the store, some are sitting in my archery drawer, some are still on my bows.

    It wouldn't be to get on TV though, 'cuz I don't really want that.
    That look on my face is not concern, its shock at your utter stupidity!

    Check out Redneckarcher.com. It's an adult archer/hunting site that feels like hunt camp.

    I agree. I would try another product at their expense if I believed it was a good product even if it wasnt what I usually used if I could get a free hunt or whatever as long as it wasnt junk.

    I wouldnt endorse something I thought was junk no matter what.

    Not just for a single appearence... unless it was an all expense paid hunt to a cool place.. Then I would use whatever they required as a condition of the payment.

    But I've already been on a hunting show, and it weren't nothing special in fact it was a pain in the rear..

    Let me put it this way... outtakes... As the guy filming us said... it's the truth... you were hunting pronghorn and you did kill a pronghorn... how you got there is subject to creative interpretation...

    No doubt, you are not a true hunter until you've been on a reality hunting tv show.

    As long as I didn't have to shoot Bowtech or Slick Tricks, I'd do just about anything.

    Speaking of, I was sitting there Sunday watching that one guy, and I kept thinking, wow, he gets to hunt some GREAT places. Even I could kill some trophies where he (David Blanton) hunts.

    I don't believe that I would could or would ever consider using a product, just to be on TV. There are those doing that right now Today, check the commercials on the Outdoor Channel. If you pay attention you can see right through the bull. Its discusting and shameful, Bear,Pope,Young, Hill would not be happy with some of our recent Archery celeberities. Look in the mirror do you like what you see.

    All depends on how much they'd pay me and "perk" me... As long as I didnt have to shoot grim reapers or Alpine bows I'd be just fine....

    If they were paying for the hunt. Would bother me a bit. Lots of good equipment out there today.

    I would not if it was equipment I thought was totally crap.

    That is how I am. I wouldnt endorse anything I thought was junk no matter what they offered me. If it wasnt my brand of choice but I thought it was really good equipment I probly would if they were giving me a free hunt or whatever.
