So, anyone watch Ax men last night? I've been watching it for a couple weeks now and have been enjoying it, until last night. In a conversation a son said to his father "lets take the day off, get drunk and go deer hunting."

I don't know about anyone else but I think it was irresponsible for them to let that go through the air. We are having enough trouble with gun rights nowdays, we don't need this kind of crap being said.

And as far as I am concerned, anyone who would wield a firearm while drinking should have their gun rights removed.

I grew up with that industry all around me, and nothing in the setup commercials for that show looked like reality. Maybe the actual show is better, but the commercials made me immediately resent it, and I can't quite say why.

I've seen that show and the impression I got of those guys and their mentality "lets take the day off, get drunk and go deer hunting", that pretty much sums it up.

The best part is the father and son combo that were pulling logs from the river, they got arrested for theft. Guess the dad never considered you need a permit to pull logs from public property...

Actually I read another news report that said he went in and asked about a permit and was told that they don't give out permits for that. I guess he took it as that he doesn't need one and can take the logs.

As for the show you have to remember they edit it to show what will make a good show. And the show sets up a bad stereotype. I have grown up around it and some of that stuff goes on but not to the extent that they show it.

I was hoping that after they watched last season they would have seen what asses they looked like on tv and would have changed. It has worked that way with Deadliest Catch on the discovery channel.

I love the Heli Logging portion of the show. What a rush that must be for the pilot and the guys on the ground who have to watch out for falling logs.

Unfortunately for them in a court of a law ignorance is not bliss. They didn't say no, and they didn't say yes, guess that means it's ok...

From watching the first couple episodes, that father running the aqua logging is a complete toolshed.

Yea the aqua logging guy is interesting. Running into a bridge, almost getting hit when he left the parts house. I was not surprised to see the report on the permit based on the episodes I have seen.

I have seen the heli log before. I also grew up in a christmas tree farm and that was how they did it. Stood at the window and just watched.
