Oh oh—that’s not a good start. I shouldn’t call them “camera jockeys”—at least where they might read it themselves!
In the recent “Hunting with Bill Miller” post here on HuntingClub.com about our hunt on Anticosti Island with Charlie Valdez, the NAHC Member who won the “NAH-TV” Dream Hunt Giveaway, I unintentionally mentioned everyone involved by name except “NAH-TV’s” own camera j____ . . . err, I mean . . . producer. The article simply referred to him as “crew.”
(Note to self: These guys are sensitive human beings who get testy about things like that.)
Anyway, I’m sorry. It was uncaring, unthinking, and I promise to be more sensitive to the producers’ needs in the future. I’ll be more sensitive to the producers’ needs in the future. I’ll be more sensitive to the producers’ needs in the future. I’ll be more sensitive . . ..
Specifically and profusely, I apologize to “NAH-TV” lead producer Terry Boeder. That’s T-E-R-R-Y B-O-E-D-E-R.
All jokes aside, Terry’s been an integral part of the “NAH-TV” team for a long time. In fact, we’ve been working together since the ESPN days on the flagship show, as well as a big part of the 13-year run of the “Shoot More, Shoot More Often” tip segments and two seasons of “The Shooting Sports on ESPN.” We’ve traveled to some pretty cool places and done some incredible things during these many years working together. Terry loves taping wing-shooting hunts above all others, and he’s captured some amazing waterfowl and bird hunting footage for “NAH-TV” over the years. I treasure the incredible footage he’s taken of all my dogs doing their thing.
The hunt we did a couple weeks ago on Anticosti was also Terry’s first visit to the island, just like it was for Charlie. So for me on my 12th hunt there, it was even more special to have the chance to see this magical place through the eyes of two first-timers.
So Charlie—and Terry—my sincere thanks for giving me the opportunity to share my Anticosti with you. I hope we get to do it again and again.
And Terry, Lonnie, Jeff, Brad and Phred, I promise . . . you’re a lot more than just “the crew.”
