I used to watch his show for the laughs. In the circles Barta travels in, there
just might be plenty of FF'ing snobs. Tred has his faults, and he admits to that. He admits that goose hunting with a recurve bow was a long shot (no
pun intended), as well as the coyote hunt out on the plains. I thought the
grizzly bear he bagged was a bit on the young/small size, etc. Oh yeah!
The knife hunt for hogs was a riot! The first time I saw that episode, I turned
the TV on just as he went Norman Bates on a hog. The guide told him he didn't need to stab them so many times, but that's Tred.
Funny thing is, he's often shown in his hunting room, with a zillion rifles
and shotguns along the wall. I think the producers wanted to highlight the
bow hunting aspect of a Type A personality, and that's what they got. Barta's comments about FF'ing don't offend me in the least. He's not referring
to me, and if he gave away all his gear, I wish I had been in the neighborhood
! He has
used FF'ing gear on the show, so...That's Barta!
P.S. If I went fishing with Barta, and he yelled at me, I'd have to toss him overboard...LOL!!!!
