Western-Hunting Self Promoter:
Any person who produces glorified western hunting media (video, photos, podcasts, magazines, books) with the intention of monetizing it through advertising, product sales, sponsorships, subscriptions, memberships, donations, guided hunts, etc.

Western hunting self-promoters readily film and post video-taped kill shots, glorified grip and grin dead animal trophy pics, and related hunting gore, handing it over to the anti-hunters print-ready for placement in anti-hunting ads.

Self-promoting celebrity hunters glorify western big game hunting to increase hype and boost sales. This results in increased hunting pressure on western-state public lands. They value money from nonresident hunters over maintaining uncrowded, quality hunting experiences for western-state resident hunters.

I have no Idea who they are except Randy
But I have said I dont watch much outdoor TV
I know your very passionate about your cause but I dont see where self promoting and earning $ from hunting is the big bad wolf of hunting

Ditto, I used to watch the outdoor chancel, media got greedy & I won't pay for it.
Only reason I'm here is HT is a great tool for information that otherwise is hard to obtain.

What a hypocrite. Check out his website. He is "selling" his gym and taking "donations." So how does he claim to be non self-promoting? His ideals are lofty nonsense but his method is the same. Someone please give a call to Jackson Hole and find out if this guy is real.

You probably would have made the top 25 but you never accepted my follow request.
Truth be told I have like 100 pending, I think most are bots so I don't allow anyone I don't know.

PM me your name and I'll accept... hope you like pics of ducks and corgis

I do not get it. What is your deal?!?
The second to the last thing you make me want to do is even think about looking at a website/FB/IG or anything that would represent someone that acts like you have.
The last thing you make me want to do is click on another one of your threads.
Festus out...
