These TV shows are going to kill us! I don't care if they are a bunch of fools like theses guys on this show, or some great well meaning people like Billy and his wonderful family. The publicity is bad for us! We'll see the results over the next few years in greatly reduced numbers due to people watching these shows and think they are going to get rich.
Maya, All it takes is one season and they'll figure out they won't get rich.. You have to love it to do it, and of course a little money for your time and effort is always nice. Most people will figure out they can make more money working part time somewhere for a month and a half than digging roots. Just let it run it's course and things will get back to normal..
I watched a few episodes of one last year but haven't wasted my time with them since. I would love to see a good documentary but if those shows were all I had to watch I would just let my gal have the remote.
This is the other big problem with the first show App Outlaws coming out on History Channel last year, and now for a 2nd year. Any show that shows a little promise, all the other networks make their own hair-brained versions to put out also. Now there are 4 shows on cable about ginseng hunting.
One of the things I am very concerned about is security; for the work I've been doing.
Not sure what I'd do if I caught someone a'thievin...
And I don\"t really want to find out. I mean, I know I've got a temper... and I know I'm a really good shot... ahh, never mind.
My business partner and I are thinking about installing video surveillance, of the wireless type. Systems are expensive, however we will have real photos of the thief sent to our central hard drive, as well as our phones... in real time. Hard to beat that system, even if the thief stole the camera!
A friend told me that every time a raccoon or a deer crossed into the sensor view, that I would get a alert from the system. I can see where that would get old real quick. Maybe there's a way to set the system to filter out that sort of stuff.
