hebetudinous- the state, condition, or quality of being dull, enervated, or lethargy. Dull or lethargic, especially relating to the mind.
Here is a blog that I thoroughly enjoy. The Thinking Hunter is written by Galen Geer. Mr Geer is a Marine Corps and Army veteran, angler, and hunter. He also spins a pretty good yarn, a thinking man's yarn.
His latest installment, Not Making Any Friends with The Outdoor Network broaches a subject that I have frequently talked about with folks, but never written about.
"...I was struggling to watch The Outdoor Channel. Either the network’s executives are only functionally literate or they are dedicated to the principle that if we show enough trash we will destroy fishing and hunting.""...personally I think many of them are somewhat hebetudinous."
I feel much as Mr Geer does. I rarely watch any hunting or fishing shows. And honestly I think the hunting shows in general are far worse than any of the fishing ones, with few exceptions.
Here's an interesting idea. For those of you that frequently watch hunting or fishing shows, let us know which ones you watch and give us a quick idea on how it reflects on the sporting person. I only get VR on my provider, but I am going to catch a few shows in the next couple of days and give my opinion in the comments section.
This might be enlightening...
