DENVER, Colo. -(Ammoland.com)- David Bloch, owner of Outdoor Edge, the company that produces quality knives and tools for all outdoor activities, announced today that the company has severed all sponsorships with Bill Busbice and the show “Wild Game Nation” in light of Busbice’s recent conviction and sentencing for game violations.

You don’t shoot a female calf by accident. If you make a “accident” happen with a firearm nobody cares if your “sorry” accidents with firearms are unacceptable, plain and simple. This guy is a clown who knows better.

By reading his statement it sounds like he is still hiding something or is not a very good liar. How could he shoot at a bull elk and hit a calf by mistake? Were they lined up perfect behind one another and the bullet went past the bull and hit the calf? Not likely and where was the cow, the calfs are usually with the cows, but o.k.

I believe the fine was $2,300 and loss of hunting privileges in both States for two years which, in my opinion, was far too light.

The fine was 23,000 and loss of hunting priviledges for 2 years in 45 states. Doesn’t mean he won’t continue to hunt illegally.

Guy is a bonehead, deserves what he got, show wasn’t good at all. Arrogant, and a lousy shot. Most of these shows are filed on a animal ranch of sorts, and these huge antlered bucks are always 5-6 year buck’s!! All for the camera!

Glad they caught him, glad he will not return, enough said.

Here’s his statement, my comment below: Statement by Bill Busbice Last October, I inadvertently shot a female calf elk while attempting to shoot a bull elk. To make matters worse, I left the scene and failed to report the incident to the warden. The failure to immediately notify the warden was horrible judgment on my part, and for that, I was fined, placed on probation, and lost my privilege to hunt. To be clear, the shot was an accident, and while the failure to report my mistake was inexcusable, I have never and would never intentionally poach. This incident is… Read more »
