Hurteau: Oh Crap I’m Going To Be On TV
By Dave Hurteau
I’m going to be on TV. I’m telling you this so you can please make plans not to watch. (I’ll update you eventually on which dates to avoid.) I do not like the camera. It frightens me. It makes we want to run away—or cry. I knew when Cabela’s asked me to go on a Wyoming mule deer hunt with Table Mountain Outfitters that owners Scott and Angie Denny have a show on the Sportsman’s Channel. But there was no way they’d want me on there. Besides, if I were to be filmed, surely someone at Cabela’s would warn me. I had nothing to worry about.
On the first morning, I got dressed, ate breakfast, and was ready to hit the field when Joe Arterburn of Cabela’s asked casually, “You don’t mind if these guys film you, right?” Oh crap, I thought.
“Of course not,” I said.
Well, I managed not to run away or cry. And I managed to take this nice 3x3. Here’s a pic of me and camera man Mario Guisto. I’ll post more details and photos when I return from Wyoming. —DH
