I hunted years ago on a ranch in OR that Roger Raglin hunted muzzle loader blacktails. They took a nice photo of him with his muzzle loader after he shot the deer with a rifle. I had the same guide.

A guide named Gerald Almond was telling me how some of the top name gun writers of the time would shoot an animal, take some pictures, go and change clothes and weapon and take more pictures of the same animal in a different position for magazine publication ... Do you guys think today`s writers are more honest or does this dishonesty still exist???

I think that it goes on a lot..the more people that I talk to that work or have worked in the industry say that it's pretty common place...I know of a show or two that denounces hunting WT deer behind a fence, but my buddy has sold them several of their free range booners, if you get my drift..LOL

Yeah it goes on. I've told a few stories from my past, to a few of you.

Years ago I was in the syndicated hunting/fishing industry and appeared on about a dozen different shows as a guest. That experience is what drove me away from that industry. It goes on. A lot.

I just happened to catch it a few minutes ago. That?s the absolute last hunting show I watch. Just happened to see the big S&W so I gave in and watched it. Initially I didn?t think it was a good shot. I watched it twice and the impact looked a bit far back for all the blood that was trailed up. I?d bet on a backup rifle in that blind...maybe not.

May be the case. May not be the case. One thing i thing is wrong is to assume because some things were done by some people in the past that everyone is. Its also very very easy for an outdoor writer or tv personality and a guide to have a disagreement and then bash/lie about that person to other clients in order to ?get back? at the writer? I stick to the stories i know to be true. I know of an outdoor writer that i know had fits with a rifle. His story didnt make it pst the editor of the mag he was writing for and it was changed to suit the advertisers. I was present when the rifle was being shot and tested. I read the article and made the mistake to assume that writer lied. It was the editor and the property of the magazine and they can do what they will with the article and they can do what they will with a story or a show. I wont make that mistake again. It was wrong. I was wrong. Scenes are cut because of fences and in one recent show it was a low fence but producers didnt want any fence included because it may be on a certain station. Dont attack the host. It makes us look petty and immature.
