    Buyer Beware....

    Some people got duped by the "World Hunt Association" or rather "World Blunt Association"

    If I was you, I'd find out who the group is before "competing" on any show.

    Default Be careful

    Well if their website is any indication of the proffessionalism involved I'd be sceptical. A real outfit willing to provide sufficient financial renumeration would have casted you with their own equipment and provided much more in the way of gathering demographics.

    I'm reminded of a Dateline episode where a bunch of females got duped into gathering for a so-called reality show to become a model or something and got filmed ect........and it wasn't even the real deal. Now some guy is getting charged with criminal stuff.

    Who knows really at this point but make sure its worth all your time away from work and really hunting and fishing in the Great Land. Personally I'd be bothered at times having a camera crew with lots of expectations along for my hunts.

    If it's turns out all good congrats.......keep us posted.

    I did a back ground check... Researched the producer.

    First thing is fly fishing and hunting... Also there will be some other stuff involved besides hunting and fishing. I'm having all paper work sent to me know to review and sign.

    Cool Gary, do you have any idea where in ***** you will be hunting and fishing? Flyfishing in ***** in Nov is usually only good on spring creeks and below dams like on the Missouri below Holter or the Big Horn. If you fish on the Missouri take a dozen or so #18 hairs ear soft hackles, olive and/or tan/brown. Grease them up a little and fish them in the film of the surface. Deadly.

    What?? I was led to believe that Alaska was the only place on this whole entire planet that one could prove how good of a sportsman they were!! Just kidding.

    Good luck!!
