Just curious. If you could go hunting, with any hunting celebrity on tv, who would it be and why? I've already hunted with Dave Watson so personaly I'd love to go hunting with Jim Shockey. I like his personality, love of hunting, and his dedication to the sport. Gotta respect his track record of muzzleloader trophies too. To me he is one of the last of the all time greats.

Been there and done that with DW too. :)

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.

Celebs EH?

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.

I have hunted with Fred and Michele Eichler in 2007 out of their outfitting ranch in Colorad and I'm about to hunt with them again this summer. These folks to me are better in real life than in their two shows. I've hunted with several folks here and I must add that was some of my best fun hunting and I'd share a hunting camp again with any one of them.

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

Greg Miller would be my first choice. I've talked with him a few times at the Wisconsin Deer Classic in Green Bay and he is great to talk to. He is probably the most knowledgeable television personality when it comes to hunting whitetails. Plus, he from Wisconsin.

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. :peace: Plus, I like that Pat and Nicole send you a personalized autographed pic when you buy something off their website. :yes:

I think Bill Engval had it right, his wildest hunting fantasy was Shania Twain showed up in camp wearing nothing but a fur coat. ( of course to understand the joke you'd have to know she is against any kind of hunting.

Another guy I'd love to hunt with would be bow hunting legend Chuck Adams. I like the "old school" hunters, if Fred Bear was still alive he'd be my first choice. Chuck, Fred and Jim Shockey, I chose because I admire all they've acomplished, not because of their celebrity status. I do admire Fred Eichler too. Anybody that takes a Grizzly, up close and personal, with a recurve definitely gets my vote. Posted Image I also like Keith Warren because he's not afraid to speak his mind and seems to be a down to earth guy.

Haven't really thought about it much. My list may include Bob Foulkrod whom I have met twice and Larry Weishun but only if those characters could keep up. Nothing beats a hunt with friends and family though.

Jim Shockey's Father or Mike Waddel !!! Either one would be a fun time. Mike was a childhood friend of a co-worker and friend of mine who died over a year ago. He comes every year to a local church and does a "wildlife banquet". My friend, John, got me a license plate signed by Michael Waddel that was lost when I hit a deer last year - maybe I could get a new one!!!!

Isn't Hal Shockey the poster boy for "VIAGARA"?

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