Eva Shockey a big joke
« on: November 07, 2012, 12:29:21 AM »
So I saw this was shared on facebook, and I can honestly say Eva Shockey is the biggest joke in the so called "celebrity" hunting world. What a poor representation for our sport and a pure coattail ride on her dad (now coasting to riches), who actually worked to where he is today. She was posted with this archery buck, wearing all the latest Holt Renfrew fashions (check out the hat), somewhere in the US. I am sure it was a canned hunt, she probably shot it as it was coming to get apples out of her hand. To me it really sours the whole sport, maybe I am cynical, but I honestly think it's a big joke. Yes she's cute (chubby arms not withstanding), but she isn't what she pretends to be, she's just a huge marketing toy for her dad.

Even worse were all the "atta girl" comments, like anyone gives a shit about her little penned up buck that was hand feds oats from a pail, it's amounts to suckholing because she's somewhat easy on the eyes. And yes, I have had a couple of rums tonight... :P

*edit*

I would take this back, I think she is starting to figure things out a bit and truly loves the sport, she is indeed a good role model for young ladies and she's taking a lot of flack from the antis and doing a good job standing up for the sport, it can't be easy for her putting up the crap the antis spew.

yes shes definitely very easy on the eyes and i think us men being the horn dogs we are get mesmerized very easy by a pretty girl doing what we love to do and almost have to watch... shes def a marketing tool... i think old dad is getting tired and old and cant keep up anymore but still needs to make the cheddar somehow to pay for all the money his wife spends... this is the end result

Lol,, why don't you tell us how you really feel Paul..

I agree with all you guys say but we have to ask ourselves, given the same circumstances would we be any different ?? I think not.

Don't get me wrong on what I am about to say I enjoy looking at the finer species of the opposite sex as much as the next guy but I hate the way a lot of these hunting shows have been going lately. How many of them are using sex to sell. How popular is it getting to have a hot little blonde in the stand with you to sell your show. It just pizzes me off to see what hunting is turning into, its nthing more than a money cash cow,, thats all it is to so many of these people, its just a commodity thats all.

As for riding coat tails Jim is being like any father and just trying to keep his family in the business.  I know I would do the same for my girls.

Agree, Jim isn't a dummy, it's a great marketing angle for him and it does keep the family in the business. Jim's boy doesn't even hunt I don't think, I think he's into photography. Anyway nothing about her outdoor pursuits impress me although I am sure she is a very nice person.

agreed.  she is getting old enough that she is realizing that she doesnt have much else going on so grab a free ride.  she had no interst in hunting until what 3 years ago?  her interest in it now is obviously not about the hunt, but what she can gain from it. i find it sad that so many men can fall for the silliness.  honestly, shes mediocre looking at best.

The way to my heart is with baked goods not acting like a ditz on TV.  Anyone out there know if she can bake a Pie ? Strawberry Rhubarb or Saskatoone are my favorites.

Americans set the stage to what sells Eava is the result I doubt in real life she is anything like the way she is on tv.

I have to agree with all of you.  I am not a fan of canned hunts at all.  Got me thinking with what I hope is a little hunter growing up in the house do I really want him watching these type of hunts.  There are some good hunting show's on and some not so good one's.  Might have to go old school and let him read Dad's hunting books (the paper kind with pages and everything).  Then take him to the woods to apply the knowledge.

With my kids, I actually keep them away from watching any of the shows.  I think their choices in life would be best influenced by real life experiences.  I try to take my kids out in the field as much as possible to give them as many experiences as I can, all year round.  My son was starting to turn into a hardcore zookeeper and protector of the animals until I got him shooting gophers last spring (he was 8) and now he is getting to be a hardcore hunter.  He was with me for an archery kill whitetail in September and talks about it all the time.  TV just doesnt give that experience.

Weste, that is basically how i feel too.  I know my Dad spent plenty of time with me out into the field teaching me the ways.  He gave me all his old hunting books to read and learn from (tracking, deer sign etc).  I think it may have been a test to see how much time i was willing to put in.

I may have to start leaving a few hunting magazines in his room for him to peruse.  My Dad never had any books for me but it could be a great way to help my son.  Not sure what the heck that smily  8) is doing in my last post, it was supposed to say he was 8 years old.  The majority of my memories growing up were in the winderness with my Dad, fishing, hunting or camping.  Now I get to return the favour to him and pay it forward to my family.  I am taking out a couple of newby's this weekend so hopefully will get to post some pics of their first kills.

       Are we even 100 percent sure this was canned hunt?  Some proof would be nice, just sayin. 

       With that aside I kinda think it's good for the sport having a little hottie shootin deer.  Hunting is a sport for everyone and maybe a girl not dressed in the full camo arrowing a deer helps show that.

No I can't say it was a canned hunt Shrubs, but if I could wager on it I would. Hey if Eva wants to hunt in mall clothes fair enough but I think anyone that shoots an animal should at least help gut it, even on a guided hunt, I would hate to see her get blood on that $300 Holt Renfrew hat.

i dont think a blonde smiley ditz does anything for the sport.  i fully support having more girls getting involved....but i dont like the subtle hint that im too dumb to see past the sexually motivated BS being rammed down our throats with the likes of eva, tiffany, and my least favorite....the chick who thinks shes a beauty queen but is actually just a former plumpy with too much makeup, nicole jones. 


there are some girls out there that legit are into hunting....many others just do it because someone thinks it will help get cromagnon couch potatoes watching.  vicki ciancarullo is the best example.  she met ralph at his archery shop where she was a customer on her own.  that woman is a hunter to the core.  maybe not the prettiest thing, but a good example of a female hunting personality.  robin also likes her on tv the most.  julie kreuter is another.  her being pretty is just a fluke, not a pre requisite.

My girl doesn't gut her own deer either, she can skin and want's to get into taxidermy down the road but just can't do the gutting thing just yet.  I know she will eventually but for now I'm fine with doin it for her.

Big Picture = No big deal

I respect you're opinion however I feel there are better fights to pick.

          I won't lie I think Tiffany and her "smile" is a little cheesy.  Talk, slight pause, big ridiculous smile lol.  Just don't see it as a huge deal is all.  I definately wouldn't call her BAD for the sport along with the others mentioned and don't feel my intelligence is being threathened either.  Been a while since I had Wild TV but shows like "The Crush" and "Driven TV" didn't bother me at all and remember some great nights watchin with a couple buddies and a few beers.

Eva is no different than Brooke Hogan, cashing in on here old man's fame. If she's a real hard core hunter fine, if it's all a publicity stunt, she'll fade quick enough.

She's cute.  The deer is nothing to write home about,  canned hunt or not.  I haven't seen her on camera,  but her mother is downright painful to watch and listen to.
