Curt Wells Goat Hunt TV
If people have not seen the new Bowhunter TV show with Curt going after BC goat, second time 10 years later, it is must watch TV. A lot of hunting shows get a well earned bad-rap, but this show was absolutely excellent. I don't know that there has ever been a better more complete show fit into that timeframe.
The viewer was taken along and felt the emotion, the ups, downs, pains, frustrations, respect, fatigue, weather problems, slips and falls, anxiety over injuries, the whole gamut of of what it means to try to get in range of those things.
It's next to impossible to get all that into 20 minutes of video, but they did it with this show like none I have ever seen. If people get what they deserve, which is not always the case, Curt certainly deserves to get his goat at some point. One thing is for sure, he took tens of thousands of people who will never go goat hunting along with him on that adventure. Amazing.
And today he’s with Rob Nye and Kent Wolowski on a remote bear hunt in Saskatchewan. Livin the dream. Quite a Bowhunter and great guy.
Curt is the best. He has definitely earned the high bar set by MR and Dwight. I have the utmost respect for the crew at Bowhunter.
I always enjoyed all of their hunts,,,,,,,,,,,,,,, Have no idea where the money comes from, since I have done 10 hunts, in 40 years, out of the box, and know the costs,,,,, I think all of the guys are first class,,,,,,,, I miss Dwight Schuh, ,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,, I could do less of Carney, but would love to see Larry Jones more, that guy was the real deal.................Curt does a great job,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,
It was pretty good to watch.
I think he said he was 67 years old at the time of the hunt.
Good luck, Robb
The crew at Bowhunter is top notch.
Is there a way to watch online?
Yep, said he was 67, incredible. It was a great episode to watch. That pack looked like it weighed about 70lbs.
Have it taped and looking forward to watching it when I get home. Something about goat hunts that pull me in unlike any other species.
Same for me. Got it on the DVR
For me it’s where goats live, they are very tough, with an iconic profile. To me, more iconic and unique than the mountain sheep species.
Curt is a great bowhunter, a humble man and has filled the shoes of his predecessors very well. I am proud to call him a friend.
I sure do like that show, when Curt is hunting. He seems like the real deal and unlike some others in that kind of role, he’s not full of himself, or a phony.
It said this is part 1 of 2? But it sure looked like the hunt was over?
I did not see it was a part 1. They packs up and left at the end of the show.
I am glad I started bowhunting when I did. I will never forget my excitement when the new Bowhunter magazine came out. Whenever I got one in the mail I would set down and power through it. Things have changed so much in that amount of time, but I couldn't wait to follow the adventures of all of the writers. M.R. James set the bar very high, but I am sure he couldn't be more proud of what both Dwight and Curt brought to the table. The whole Bowhunter crew has been and still is the epitome of class.
That being said.....I can't wait to watch it tonight.
I think part 1 was when he went goat hunting in 2012.
Agree with Dale06. Curt comes across to me, as a pretty humble guy.
+1 on the backpack looking like it was very full and Heavy!!
It was on again this early AM and I watched it again.
Good luck, Robb
Curt and I hunted the same ranch in Kansas at the same time for several years. He always had a cameraman with him, of course. Never once, was there any kind of friction between us, and he was genuinely happy whenever I killed a nice deer, as I was for him. I know he is under pressure to get footage for a show, but he was always a good sportsman, and represented our sport very well. We still hunt with the same outfitter, although that ranch went to another outfitter. I hope to see Curt this fall and enjoy another meal with him. He had some great stories!
The show is on right now, 9:30 Eastern on Sportsman Channel
Just watched his latest goat hunt. I’m now way to old to try such a hunt, and not sure I was ever tough enough to do a back pack goat hunt.
There’s nothing quite like them, Dale. I know the thought of quitting certainly crossed my mind at times on my goat hunt. It may sound somewhat cliche, but I do believe there is something to even going through with a goat hunt. I know I can’t wait to get back after them.
Is that a grin or a grimace, BEG??
I’m 0-2 on DIY goat hunts. Both are memories I’ll never forget, so I related to this show. Curt is an animal.
I happened to see that show and was impressed
I have always been shocked that sheep hunts are drastically higher in price when everyone knows. The goat is the G.O.A.T.
They live above sheep for a reason :>))))
Look forward to the show. No corny music, no chest thumping and they show warts an all when the hunt doesn’t go well.
"He seems like the real deal and unlike some others in that kind of role, he’s not full of himself, or a phony." So true!
Great episode! A little clip of long ago hunt with a kill thrown in was interesting. Curt was amazing on his "March of death"
