    by far one of the best hunting shows on TV right now. One of the best example of what it’s like to hunt the West for big game.

    Looks like the DVD is more cerebral than most hunting DVDs but not the made-up theatrical stuff, with constant replays, to take up time.

    Anxiously awaiting the disk to arrive. With no cable I missed the last section of the season. :-(

    Best hunting show on TV without a doubt. Being a public land, DIY hunter myself, I can completely relate to the difficulty of how hunting was truly meant to be. I am a huge fan of how the The Western Hunter promotes respect for the game alongside cherishing time with friends and family in the outdoors.

    TV has needed the Western hunter, and the response to the program proves it. The perception of the modern “hunter” has gone the wrong way, turning from a challenging hunter-gatherer activity, to a gentleman’s outing where a trophy harvest is almost assured. Successful DIY western hunting doesn’t happen with a cold beer and a leisurely cruise through the pasture! It takes preparation, dedication, and exertion of a tremendous amount of effort. As Theodore Roosevelt said, “The mere fair-weather hunter, who trusts entirely to the exertion of others, and does more than ride or walk about under favorable circumstances, and shoot at what somebody else shows him, is a hunter in name only.” The Western Hunter is a breath of fresh air, and serves as an example to our industry! Keep it up guys!

    The Western Hunter is everything a hunting show should be. It is well produced, showing hard-working, ethical, do-it-yourself hunters hunting on public land for some of the most beautiful creatures on God’s green earth. The show gives these beautiful western big game animals the proper respect they deserve and illustrates the entire process of the hunt – proving that hunting is more than just about wall hangers, record books and trophies. TWH is a show for hunters, by hunters, and I for one, wouldn’t want it any other way.

    Not one of the best – the best hunting show out there. No guides, no fences, all DIY in the most beautiful place on earth – the western US. Do yourself a favor and rewatch these at least once a month to psych yourself up for hunting season.

    This is honestly my favorite show and magazines ! The Western Hunter crew is an amazing team with awesome talent.
    I recorded all their shows on my DVR and find myself watching them over and over again. They some how bring me in to the mountains and settings with them. They know how to keep the show real .I just purchased the DVD to bring the shows with me on road. Thank You Western Hunter !

    By far one the best hunting shows out there! The way western big game hunting should be. All on public land, no guides, and Doing it Yourself. Can’t wait for Season 2!

    Reviewing Western Hunter TV is the easist review to do. FIrst, it is far and away the best show on the hunting channels. Nate, Ryan, and the gang do a fantastic job of capturing all aspects of the hunt. It is realistic, they show the trials and tribulations that backcountry hunting provides. They creatively weave the importance of fair chase and truly do things in the overused DIY fashion. From fantastic videography, to compelling story lines, great back ground music and finally a true down to earth – non-celebrity style, this show should appeal to any “true” hunter regardless of weapon preference.

    Great, great show! Great, great hosts!

    Western hunting at its finest, public land/DIY hunts. Its what makes their hunts so appealing, Nate and Ryan are not hunting big leases or guided hunts. The wilderness and adventure they capture through their videos is awesome. Most other hunting shows are not entertaining after you watch the Western Hunter. Looking forward to a second season full of adventure.

    Absolutely love Western Hunter. Being a female it’s hard I find a hunting show with heart for me to watch. My kids love the show too and can’t wait to grow up and hunt like that. Keep up the great work and can’t wait for season 2. Come to Arizona :)

Thank You for sacrificing your time away from family to give quality time to us… the hunter and your followers! Thank You!!!!

    :

    Western Hunter presents the game as it really is….Hunters don’t always end up with a trophy or even an animal for that matter. Missing a bull elk with a bow is something that actually happens contrary to what you may see on other shows. Having hunted in the wilds of New Mexico and Colorado for over 40 years, it’s easy for me to get cynical when it comes to hunting shows. Even my teenagers understand how the game is played. All of us have watched Western Hunter with admiration and somewhat disbelief in seeing a hunting show on tv that actually portrays it as it really stands. During one of the first shows, my boys and I watched Nate Simmons miss twice on a big bull from 40 yards! Immediately we all knew this was a show that we would continue to watch because we had been there. Thanks Western Hunter for such a real and excellent representation of what Western big game hunting is all about. We will be fans for years.

    Best hunting show on tv! Clearly depicts the details of each hunt and not just the kill. From backpacking to finding water, you get a real feel of what it’s like to do a DIY hunt in the back country. I live in the Midwest and the show has inspired me to plan a backcountry elk hunt in Idaho this fall. Thanks for a great show!

    The Western Hunting show is by far the best DIY hunting on TV. Due to some cut backs at home I had to give up the channel you guys play on. I record it at work now and watch it there. I will say that your show is the only show I really care to watch. Thanks!!!

    This show demonstrates the True Western DIY Hunter. I love everything about backcountry DIY Hunting and this show is exactly that. Western big game Hunting is not easy and this show tells the true story of what it’s all about (In HD). Great job fellas I can’t wait for the next season.

    This show, for me, is by far the best produced western hunting show I’ve seen. I may be partial because I live in the west (Idaho). The season 1 DVD has not left my player since I bought it. Nate Simmons, Ryan Hatfield, and Chris Denham are class act people. I met them, and appreciate their stories and insights. Keep em coming guys – fantastic!

    I just saw part your show for the first time last night, then waited until the next showing a few hours later to see the whole program. Nice job guys. I like your approach and outlook. It is one of the best hunting TV shows available and shows a far more accurate picture of real outdoor activity than nearly all the others.

    So I just subscribed to the magazine and ordered the DVD as well. I hope your efforts reward you with a successful magazine and a long run on TV.

    I called and ask if this DVD was in High Definition ( HD ) and found out IT IS NOT in HD.
    I watch nothing but HD TV and that’s why I only watch the Sportsman Ch on Dish as
    that is the only HD hunting channel. I would have paid more for HD. So No Sale Here.
    I do have them on my HOPPER, praise the LORD for the hopper…
    The show is 5 Stars in High Def

    May I say that I thoroughly enjoyed Season 1 and am waiting for season 2. I live in the Mississippi River Delta and long for a chance to return to the Rockies for another hunt. You guys bring us the full experience of the hunt and your show is about the experience and not the kill. I envy Nate and Ryan’s physical and mental ability to hunt the way they do. Hunting here in the Delta and even the Ozarks is nothing compared to western high country. Thank you for allowing me to hunt the Rockies through you.

    This show sets the standard extremely high for hunting shows. No other hunting show comes close to the high quality of Western Hunter. The ethics, video quality, fair chase, DIY, and the experience of the hunt is all captured in this show. Keep up the fantastic work, can’t wait for season two. The five most important words from this review “BUY THE DVD AND MAGAZINE”.
