    false bravado false manhood

  2. Michal Newton on June 6, 2021 at 10:32 pm

    Keep that kid out of the woods

  3. Lord Farquaad on June 6, 2021 at 10:35 pm

    So you wound the animal and don’t have to decency to put it out of its misery yourself? You have to be prepared to do stuff like that when you go hunting. I hope this kid stayed out of the woods.

  4. Lil Fetus on June 6, 2021 at 10:35 pm

    We love to see a liberal try and hunt 😂

  5. Nikki Taylor on June 6, 2021 at 10:36 pm

    You don’t shoot does

  6. Derek Pauley on June 6, 2021 at 10:36 pm

    "I made a bad shot – can you get it"? Yeah

    Makes another bad shot – -_-

  7. David on June 6, 2021 at 10:37 pm

    His dad shouldnt be forcing him. I hunt. My kids dont. They never will unless they want to!

  8. Derek Pauley on June 6, 2021 at 10:37 pm

    I wish I could just walk out in a field and find a bunch of deer to shoot lol

  9. TicTacDimmy2 _ on June 6, 2021 at 10:39 pm

    His dad seems like he hasn’t taught him well at all for this and is expecting him to do everything

  10. Jolly CoOperator on June 6, 2021 at 10:40 pm

    This was a bad example of a deer hunt…

  11. Anthony Spinozzi on June 6, 2021 at 10:41 pm

    For everyone watching: this kid is a wuss. Hunting is okay. Go hunt.

  12. Simbyy on June 6, 2021 at 10:41 pm

    This is soo lame lol

  13. Deacon V on June 6, 2021 at 10:44 pm

    What a sissy

  14. XxReDnAzTyxX #38 RB on June 6, 2021 at 10:47 pm

    That’s how I was yesterday

  15. Michael Norris on June 6, 2021 at 10:48 pm

    Did not enjoy hearing that deer screaming in pain, if you’re gonna shoot it, place your shot right and drop it within a couple yards, if not instantly

  16. Chris Barr on June 6, 2021 at 10:48 pm

    Sucks

  17. Oclav AmAh on June 6, 2021 at 10:49 pm

    NYT just a bunch of liberals

  18. m1a2 Abrams on June 6, 2021 at 10:49 pm

    The first time they saw the deer glen wouldent stop breathing and shaking the gun around so he couldn’t get a shot

  19. strr60seven unsolicited on June 6, 2021 at 10:51 pm

    Hunting is an awesome hobby for some and a way of for many. But it’s not for everyone. If an individual does not want to hunt dont force them to do so.
    Now this looks like a bad article in general. They made the kid look like a whimp and made the man guiding him look very passive aggressive. But I can understand the frustration from the man and also the intimidation of the boy.

  20. BrokenRod Fishing on June 6, 2021 at 10:53 pm

    From what I learn from my dad he say if you see one just shoot it

  21. Chris Rendon on June 6, 2021 at 10:55 pm

    Get this kid off I woulda blasted that deer so fast

  22. Thomas Westermin on June 6, 2021 at 10:56 pm

    Kid has a kind heart but eating meat and killing the deer are the same thing

  23. Adam Kinnear on June 6, 2021 at 10:57 pm

    trying to make hunters look bad

  24. Royce Dejong on June 6, 2021 at 10:57 pm

    Not real hunters.

  25. Andrew on June 6, 2021 at 10:58 pm

    Why do some of them not have orange on? This whole vid seems fake to me, like a caricature of what NYT wants hunting families to be.

  26. Rat King on June 6, 2021 at 10:58 pm

    little baby boy needs to get his stuff together ive wanted to go hunting since i was like 13 lol

  27. Chance on June 6, 2021 at 10:59 pm

    "You could’ve shot that with a crossbow" 😂

  28. Ryan Murdock on June 6, 2021 at 11:00 pm

    It sucks when the deer screams when you shoot it, last year I shot a doe in the spine and she died quickly but she whined before she died, it just makes ya cringe because you want to be respectful and take a good shot at the animal but sometimes it doesn’t happen like that…

  29. Blake Jacobs on June 6, 2021 at 11:00 pm

    I shot my first deer yesterday. 100 yards away, broadside, and right through the lungs with a .243 without hesitation . My dad then guided me through on how to gut the buck, which I then did. Then I drug him out of the forest by myself. This kid and his dad are illiterate if your going to hunt do it right. Don’t make the deer suffer cause your bad.

  30. UP NORTH on June 6, 2021 at 11:02 pm

    Soft.

  31. TicTacDimmy2 _ on June 6, 2021 at 11:02 pm

    Why use this family for this video I must ask

  32. Victor Yang on June 6, 2021 at 11:04 pm

    Hunting just isnt for some folks

  33. Too Many Hobbies on June 6, 2021 at 11:05 pm

    Lol this kids a vegan i think.

  34. Brock’s Habitat on June 6, 2021 at 11:06 pm

    Keep country kids in the country and city kids in the city

  35. mike anderson on June 6, 2021 at 11:09 pm

    My boss has farm zone tags and he gave me a deer last week. I skinned and quartered it. I shot my own deer today for the first time in a year. I gutted, skinned and quartered it. Very easy. Son you wouldn’t have survived 100 years ago.

  36. Huston Ryholt on June 6, 2021 at 11:13 pm

    Holy crap dude if my son doesn’t want to go hunting then I won’t make them do it

  37. Screen Apple on June 6, 2021 at 11:16 pm

    These guy should start playing call of duty… see if you can take hackers and cheaters. Shooting a deer is a sport but boring. Try call of duty..

  38. Boondocks Fishing on June 6, 2021 at 11:16 pm

    4:51 weakling

  39. Greg Green on June 6, 2021 at 11:16 pm

    Some people dont have the abilities . But really bad choice for a documentary unless trying to portray hunters as cruel and heartless. Same people made this will eat meat raised on corporate farms that is dispatched very inhumanely

  40. TN._TRAPPER duke on June 6, 2021 at 11:17 pm

    He shot it in the butt!? I can hit em in the heart while their running through the woods and I guarantee I use a smaller caliber

  41. Sauce Gandhi on June 6, 2021 at 11:19 pm

    Thats y them city boys dont belong in the wild. This kid is a pure puss

  42. 117rebel on June 6, 2021 at 11:21 pm

    I’ve been hunting a few times. I don’t like killing but it’s not being killed for nothing. The animals I’ve shot made very good meals. I’m not an avid hunter. Mainly because I am not a morning person. I like to sleep in late and stay up late.

  43. AmericanATVS on June 6, 2021 at 11:21 pm

    I have been hunting since i was 9. i shot my first deer when i was 13 it was 100 yards away and it was about -13 outside and it was a offhand shot. I shot it without taking a minute to even look at it. now im 14 and have shot 3 deer

  44. Ashton on June 6, 2021 at 11:21 pm

    I’m gonna be honest I thought this kid was SPED bc of the way he was acting. This is a pretty terrible documentary ngl.

  45. Fizzi on June 6, 2021 at 11:22 pm

    Dude is going hunting and doesn’t know how to load a gun.

  46. Blake Albritton on June 6, 2021 at 11:22 pm

    I shot my first buck when I was 7 years old what kind of wimp is this

  47. David Trent on June 6, 2021 at 11:26 pm

    Doesn’t matter if you hunt all your life if you can’t pull the trigger. Best wishes

  48. Mullet Mafia Outdoors on June 6, 2021 at 11:27 pm

    Yeesh this kid needs to get it together

  49. TheeTimer on June 6, 2021 at 11:27 pm

    What are you doing glen

  50. Ethan Dick on June 6, 2021 at 11:29 pm

    If you yourself can’t pull the trigger stay in the city this video was awful
