Default McMillan Tv show this week.

Been watching him for a couple years now and really dig his show. He always has his wife and kid in 50% of the show. I love that he is teaching Son about hard work. Show is really good.

This weeks episode was fantastic. Kills one heck of a Kansas deer with alot of hard work. I like guys that are passionate, and can not sleep because he are always trying to figure out how to get a deer killed. Kudos to him. Making a great show when there is a ton of Crap out there. He is also pretty dang funny in a dry way...

He kind of came off a little arrogant to me at first, but I think it’s just his dry personality. He does have a good show and he seems like a top notch guy. We hunt not too far from his place in Kansas.

Dude has undiagnosed ADHD as bad as I do. If he is half as active in real life as he is on that show, he can do anything. His shows with Blake Shelton are pure gold.

He's one of the good ones. Seems like the real deal to me.

I agree with the above, he's funny but when Blake is on there to humor will go up.

Mitch, you ever notice with the exception of one really nice buck killed by an older gentleman last season, that all the 150' plus deer only get killed by Tom or Michael Waddell or his other high profile clients??? The average client kills 140" or less, at least those are the cuts that make the show......just saying........ego starting to grow.....

It's one of the few I watch as soon as it's recorded. I always thought he came off more self deprecating than arrogant.

Client killed a massive deer on last week's muzzleloader show.

I never said arrogant. Just heading in that direction. Watch the previous shows of ALL the deer killed and you will not be impressed......

I've seen them all and I know what you mean. It's interesting to see a large number of clients and how the kills, no kills, and size of deer shake out. What surprised me the most is how many guys go home empty handed. I've never hunted that part of the world though so I'm not sure what the success rate should be.

It's tough country as far as numbers are concerned. I like the show, I was just making an observation on the evolution of Tom and his business. It's like Fred Eichler and the number of hunters he runs. There can not be that many big deer in a concentrated area is what I was referring to. My family farms some country southwest of where Tom hunts and the number of big deer are few and far between. The biggest problem in that general area is how open it is..

In last weeks episode he talked a 1st time jo name client from Georgia to stay an extra day if possible because it had been hot. Guy killed a 184 inch deer next day.

As for customers going home empty handed, that is the norm on this type of hunt. There is not a giant behind every bush, it is tuff hunting.

I enjoy watching his show too. I liked the show where he was on the ground next to a fence line and nail this huge buck.

Never met the guy but have hunted in the same area with a different outfitter. Tom would have his guys ride up and down the road in front of where this other outfitter had hunters. They would also blow on the horn.
Not cool. Heard other horror stories from this guy as well from the locals.

Tom is a friend and a nice guy. He ranches and sells a few hunts to help pay the bills. Does not have a big ego which makes him much easier to be around.
Adios,

I like him because he seems to make more fun of himself then anything. one of the better ones out there. I am also a huge fan of Live to hunt with Cody and Kelsy. I love the Primos elk hunting shows. They are masters at calling in bulls. Hunt masters has one of the best scenes I have ever seen when he smoked a giant Mulie with his bow and it runs right next to him at 2/3 yards. Amazing footage.
