This isn’t the Discovery Channel:

TNN’s Turkey Call

Set your VCR’s now for Saturday morning… this is by far (to me anyway) the strangest thing on TV right now. See how this(uh)”fast-paced” show delivers detailed information on how to attract game,dress for combat and pack your rifle for airport transport. See two guys whispering to each other in the bushes.

Classified as a live action hunting show and brought to you by the folks over at the Wild Life Turkey Federation, I am trying to wrap my mind around their rationalizations for calling themselves a conservation organization. Its certainly not like I sit down to a Tofurky for Thanksgiving Dinner, but there is something mildly disturbing in all of this, especially the super graphics during their sponsorship commercials. Bonus points: check out the trailcam.
