In this episode of Hunting with Jim, Crazy Jim and John put the training wheels back on the bike and take a ride around the block. You see, we’ve both been hecka busy with projects that actually pay us the benjamins, so we’ve had to neglect the crap out of our cute little micro-audience online. Our bad. With that said, we’re going to try to scale back a bit on expectations for this site for the short-term and just create a series of what I’m calling, ’short cuts’ - short crazy escapades from the Crazy Jim chronicles. We hope you enjoy …though if you don’t, we seriously don’t give a shit. Seriously. I lie. We love you.
P.s. Deer season right around the corner!
Well, I hope none of you came down with a bad case of the gout while waiting for me to get off my tardy keester and back to work. Alas, the wait is over for now, so pipe down you friggin’ toothless banshees and enjoy this new video that features Phillip from the Hog Blog.
That’s right, Crazy Jim isn’t in this video. He was on vacation. OK…actually he got a little too deep into the sauce the night before the hunt, thanks to our generous host T. Michael Riddle and his Native Hunt’s special collection of fine liquors . We couldn’t wake him up to save our lives. And believe me, I tried. But waking the Crazy One from a deep slumber is about as easy as doing the the Fox Trot with a corpse. He wasn’t budging.
So Phillip and I headed out with T. Michael * on our mission: to harvest a hog that had been identified to have some undesirable genetic traits that Native Hunt didn’t want being passed down to their ranch’s otherwise pure-bred Eurasian wild boar population. Surprisingly, it didn’t take us long to find this hog and it quickly became a rather eventful hunt as you’ll see in the video.
On a parallel hunt, our other partner for the weekend and fellow blogger, Holly, headed out with a couple of Native Hunt’s professional guides to take down her first-ever large game animal. Unfortunately, the camera couldn’t be in two places at once, so you’ll have to read all about her hog hunting escapades with us on her blog, NorCal Cazadora. And from what the guides told me, she had quite a shot at over 200 yards. That’s a big boo-ya for Holly.
But even if Phillip and Holly’s hunts had not turned out as well as they did, it still would have been a pleasure to explore all that Native Hunt has to offer. T. Michael Riddle and his staff have really put together an exciting wildlife experience with populations of animals as diverse as the exotic liquors that Crazy Jim ingested. Thanks, Native Hunt. You complete me.
But enough of this typing. No one reads this shit anyways. So sit back, rub your gout-ridden feet and enjoy the hell out of this video because there’s no telling when you might see another one.
Respectfully yours, The Management
* Phillip and T. Michael were actually up just as late as Crazy Jim and they were still able to get up for the hunt. Thus the first recipient of our coveted Sally of the Week award goes to our very own Crazy Jim.]]>
Alas, we DO have an excuse! It’s your fault.
I don’t know exactly why it’s your fault yet, but, rest assured, in time, I will place the blame squarely on you.
But have no fear, we’ll be back soon with more Crazy Jim action where he hunts, grunts and grins his way through more hunting videos than you can shake a stick at while simultaneously driving me absolutely friggin’ nuts. And with these new videos we will realize global peace, carbon-free fuels, a sonic boom in consumer confidence and affordable housing for all! It will be a brave, new world - who said hunting can’t change the world.
P.S. Hunting with Jim is now on Flickr
Well look who is posting a second video in less than two weeks! Boo-ya! Let me say it again, boo-friggin’-ya! Unfortunately, this is not the video that you were probably expecting (wild boar hunting) - that footage is so good that I really don’t want to force it onto the web prematurely. Instead, I want to take my time pampering it…maybe buy it a nice dinner at Red Lobster, some red wine and whisper a few nonsensicals into its ear before I do my dirty work to it. Being patient will pay dividends. You’ll see.
Instead, this week’s video is from as far left field as that last paragraph. One doesn’t normally associate a critical examination of the Blacksploitation era’s influence on contemporary pop-culture with turkey hunting, buy hey, when you’re walking around for hours looking for non-existent gobblers, you’ve got a lot of time to kill. And so this video is just something I whipped up from one of the many strange conversations I’ve had with Crazy Jim. Enjoy.
WARNING: This video contains brief nudity (not of Jim, thank god), naughty words and adult situations. Sweet.]]>
OK. So it took us for-friggin-ever to get the second installment of Crazy Jim’s turkey hunting escapades posted to the glorious halls of the world wide web…but hey, we’ve got real jobs and junk and sometimes this stuff has to take a back seat. So we at Huntingwithjim.com want to thank the three or four of you watching these videos for your patience and undying love.
With that said, we’ve decided to scale back the turkey hunting series from 3 parts to 2, so we can move on to all of the hot, hog action that’s on deck. So in this, the grand finale of the turkey hunting season, Crazy Jim has crash landed on a mysterious island full of turkeys. In order to leave he must bag himself a big bearded gobbler before the likes of the Dharma Initiative or “the Others” can get their hands on him. Will he find this elusive gobbler and earn passage off of Turkey Island? Or will he have to hunker down until next season? You’ll have to watch to find out!
Love, the Management.
P.S. If you’ve never watched Lost, none of this is gonna make any sense to you. I’m at peace with that.]]>
This past weekend Crazy Jim and I were invited to go hoggin’ with fellow hunters and bloggers, Phillip of the world famous Hog Blog and the magnificent and creative Holly of NorCalCazadora. It was an excellent trip overflowing with success and we’re looking forward to bringing you all of the little piggy action.
But you’ll have to wait.
We’re right in the middle of our Turkey hunting extravaganza, so it’ll take us time to get the hog hunting footage all cut up and talking pretty for you. So go ahead and bookmark us or hit us up for our RSS so we can let you know when our hoggin’ escapades hit the web.

Well turkey season here in California may have come and gone, but at Hunting with Jim, it’s always turkey time. That’s right boys and girls, hunters and those who hate hunters’ guts…get ready for three, yes three intense turkey hunting episodes! And I don’t want to give too much away, but be prepared for so many cliffhangers, plot twists and false peaks that you will forget that future Jack is lame, John Locke is a tard and Lost is done for the season.So without further ado, I present to the few souls brave enough to hunt with a man named Crazy Jim, Turkey - Part I
* This episode is not brought to you by Perdue, Butterball or Tyson…but we’d be cool with that.]]>
Everyone remembers their first time. Their first kiss, their first time drunk …the first time the New York football Giants spanked that Sally, Tom Brady, and the Patriots like naughty school girls in the Super Bowl.So it is with hunting and your first kill. It’s what you’ve been obsessively planning for, hearing stories about and waking up at the crack of dawn for. But until you actually pull that trigger you don’t know how you’re going to feel. You’re taking a life after all. It is both exhilarating and a moment of pure horror and regret. In this video, Crazy Jim takes me hunting for Black Tail and tells me about his first kill, how it made him feel and why he still goes ape shit for deer season.
