Ok rant over.
Looks like they got a new toy, and forgot that the film was supposed to be about "ethics"...
Also the bear hunting magazine guy's video is pretty great. Wish they could've had longer entries.
Mostly anti climactic videos from then on.
I only watched a few minutes but the film looked good, nice cinematography. You need to remember we live in a day where all it costs you is your time to watch these things on youtube. If we complain about what we watch on youtube for literally nothing, I think that's going too far. If you paid money to go see the film in theatres and it stinks then you have a right to complain. If it's no good, shut it off. I'd have to agree that the elk stampede is caused by the drone. Whether that makes a person unethical, not sure. Depends how long they run the animals. We all make animals run every time we enter the woods.
Personally I somehow get bothered by a good amount of people that seem to have "figured" ethics out and then feel the need to transfer their version of it onto the rest of the human population. It's like the guy that after 35 years of marriage seems to know what ticks with his wife and proceeds to tell you how it should be done. Doesn't work the same for everybody. One would think ethics would be a lot more universal, but fact of the matter is we all disagree on the finer points of it. Seems some people love treat coyotes different than an elk, and think that's ethical. Others will argue differently. Like the guy in that Wildlifers TV hat just comes across as pompous to me. I'm all for hunting ethically, don't get me wrong, but hunting ethics seems to riding it's very own wave lately and for some reason I find it annoying. No idea why, it should be a good thing but it annoys the heck out of me, everyone preaching their own ethics on everyone else.
Fact of the matter is it's part of maturity. Almost everyone hunts differently in their 40's than they did in their 20's. Most people drink differently in their 40's than they did in their 20's as well. It's part of growing up, it's called maturation.
They say your supposed to get wiser with age. I guess I'm still to young.
I will say this, the lead sponsors on videos like this pick and chose what short videos they show and hopefully they understand their choices impact the hunting world in general and also whether or not this hurts or helps them sell their products.
Overall though, the quality of some films being put out these days is a vast improvement over what the hunting industry had been doing for years. I hope the trend continues as film makers learn what good quality really means.
