He is my idol and my hero. He's the whole reason I wear khaki all the time now and the reason for my being pro-environment. I had always loved animals and seeing him do what did to protect them was very inspiring.
Needless to say, his death in 2006 hit me hard.
It pains me to no end to see his show only get one airing a day at 8am while creeps like The Turtle Man get weekly marathons.
You don't learn anything about anything from watching this stupid hillbilly roll around in the mud. It's pure character driven "reality" trash and only exists because of America's stupid obsession with rednecks and hillbillies.
