Hunting With A Celebrity

So, bearing that in mind, I'd think Bob Foulkrod, Phil Phillips, Walter Parrott, Eddie Salter, Matt Morrett, or Greg Miller would make my list. (Sorry, can't narrow it down to just one.)
Bob Foulkrod is a legend. He and Dan Fitzgerald were the first two guys I ever watched hunting videos of. I think I was 13 years old at the time. (Outdoor Television didn't really exist yet. You bought or rented videos from your local sporting shop. )
Phil Phillips is also a legend. He always does it with a bow too. Gotta admire that.
Walter Parrott is the greatest turkey caller I've ever witnessed. His "cluck & purr" would probably get him shot on public land in PA. I learned to use a mouth call by watching a VHS of him, Matt Morrett and Tom Stuckey probably 15 years ago now.
Eddie Salter was the first turkey hunter I ever saw on video. I wore that VHS out! Couldn't get enough of him. I'm not sure I remember him using anything other than a mouth call. I'll also never forget he was one of the first people I saw openly plug Realtree camo on film. (It was well before Realtree ever had an "outdoor block" on TNN, or any network, for that matter. Only one pattern back then too and it surely wasn't digitally designed!)
Matt Morrett: Already touched on him a bit. Great turkey hunter/caller. I also respect his bowhunting whitetail skill. Plus, he's from right here in my home state. I met him a couple years back along with Fred Eichler at the Pittsburgh Sportsman's Warehouse archery expo in '06. Very down to earth guy. (Then again, most "in the biz" are.)
Greg Miller simply because he cracks me up. I also respect his skill with a compound bow. But, still, mostly because he cracks me up.

Well I guess I could cut and paste the membership list from HuntingResource and of course that'd include Jer, Bruce (and the Colarado Hole in the Wall Gang), the Woodster, Pennsylvania members (which may well resemble the 2008 voters list).....ah heck I don't wan'na miss anyone, so the whole darn kit an' kaboodle!
Oh ya, an' if'n I have to actually take someone along that I'd have to show what to do (KE Ke ke), then Jim Shockey would be right up there, Fred Eichler, David Blanton (he seems to be a real down-to-earth-guy), Michael Waddell, and Ralph and Vicki from Archer's Choice.

On second thought I really don't desire to hunt with any celebs just some good friends.

Pat Reeve would be another choice of mine. He is also pretty "local" being from Minnesota. I've enjoyed watching his hunts since he was with HS several years ago. I also wouldn't mind sharing a camp with Nicole Jones (co-host of "Driven TV" with Pat Reeve). She seems to be herself on camera more than someone else who was already mentioned. Plus, I like that Pat and Nicole send you a personalized autographed pic when you buy something off their website.

Wonder if he gives out samples? It would give a whole new meaning to the term "ON POINT", when bird (English slang) hunting!
