yeah see that now there are two threads in here on the same subject.  :chuckle:
"When my bow falls, so shall the world. When me heart ceases to pump blood to my body, it will all come crashing down. As a hunter, we are bound by duty, nay, bound by our very soul to this world. When a hunter dies we feel it, we sense it, and the world trembles with sorrow. When I die, so shall the world, from the shock of loosing such a great part of ones soul." Ezekiel, Okeanos Hunter

I follow him, Josh Bowmar, on instagram even before he speared this bear. Plenty of videos of him practicing spear shots constanley for this hunt and I had no doubt he was gonna get a bear with one judging by watching his videos.  Him and his wife show great athleticism and both a Under Armour sponsored hunters.

I too follow the Bowmars on IG. As of yesterday Under Armor has dropped Sarah (Josh's wife) from their sponsorship due to the backlash from the Anti's regarding this bear hunt (NOTE: Josh was not sponsored by UA). IMHO, this was a very hypocritical decision. UA and UAHUNT more specifically has many top level hunters and pro-level competition archers and other well known TV personalities on their pro-staff roster, some of which who are also beasts in the fitness world.

It should be interesting to watch how UA is affected, and how the other hunt-thlete's, hunters and UAHUNT end users will respond. So far the support for the Bowmars has been very vocal, I'm sure UA has a few emails to sort through this a.m.  :chuckle:

For those who don't know the Bowmars,  they are very hard working and determined individuals. Often posting about daily fitness tips, healthy eating recipes (including recipe's with game they have harvested) and recently posted about working with a local African tribe as well as donating meat from a hunt that took place during the same trip. If you asked me, this is the kind of person us hunters want to be in the spotlight, a positive spotlight.

Hunters are ticked off. On facebook, there are miles of pictures of hunters burning their UA stuff. Rightfully so.  :tup:

I have no problem with the method of take. He obviously was well prepared for the hunt. Too bad he wasn't as prepared to act as an ambassador for hunters than he did. IMO he acted like a self absorbed fool, and showing intestines on the track showed a complete lack of awareness of the audience this would end up in front of.
+1.  I don't care what method someone uses, as long as they're proficient.  The controversy is stirring because he is generating it.  He's using this as a major self promotion and it's making hunters look bad.  I am sick of "TV hunters",  just go hunt to enjoy it- not to make yourself famous

Just watched Tiffany lakosky decked out in under armor shoot a buck really low and back. They let it lay over night and found it the next Day after showing multiple shots of the blood trail. She freaked out and fist pumped with Lee upon finding it.
What's the difference to those of you who think this guy was in the wrong for being excited and showing"death/blood trail"  :dunno:


Hypocrisy=It is the practice of engaging in the same behavior or activity for which one criticizes another.
I think this sums up under armours position with regards to their other sponsored athletes

I agree. I disdain most made for tv hunts. They try to build false sense of excitement to make it seem like a bigger accomplishment than it is. Trying to outdo all the other TV hunters.  I'm of the old school Vince Lombardi school of thought. Act like you've been there before. I've hunted over 50 years now and I've never seen hunters act like TV hunters. Show some joy, yes. Show some excitement, yes. But act like you're the first man to give birth? no.

 :yeah: Agreed...It shows so much more meaning or honor when they say a quick thanks to the animal and being humble for just taking a life for food to feed themselves and their families. Very few shows do that, most of these s****y TV shows immediately say, "look at these G3 points or wow this drop tine". I'm all for nice antlers or horns but all the fist pumping makes them look like a southern version of Jersey Shore.
