First of all, yes this is real. Second of all, isn't he missing an eye or something?
It's true, for the low price of $375 you could be hunting deer with Bernie Parent, a guy who played goalie for the Philadelphia Flyers in the 70's. Whether or not he's any good, like if you'd be learning something, is not mentioned in the post. What is mentioned is that it's your choice - crossbow, shot gun, or muzzle loader (?).
From the ad:
YOU ARE PURCHASING A ONE DAY FULLY GUIDED HUNT ON OUR PRIVATE FARMS IN NEW JERSEY WITH NHL LEGEND BERNIE PARENT. THIS HUNT WILL INCLUDE BREAKFAST WITH BERNIE A MORNING HUNT, LUNCH WITH BERNIE TO INCLUDE A PHOTO SHOOT FOR YOUR OWN PERSONAL PICTURES AND AUTOGRAPGHS. YOU WILL THEN BE TAKEN OUT ON OUR EVENING HUNT. YOUR GUIDE WILL TAKE YOU TO AND FROM YOUR STEEL LADDER STAND OR GROUND BLIND IF YOU PREFER, LOCATE, FIELD DRESS AND TRANSPORT ANY DEER YOU MAY TAKE BACK TO THE CLUB HOUSE. FULL BUTHERING SERVICES ARE AVAILABLE UPON REQUEST. THESE HUNTS ARE AVAILABLE TO INDIVIDUAL GROUPS, CORPORATE, ETC.
I don't know who's making money on this but it's a pretty strange promotion. Golf yes, lunch yes, a deer slaying, not so much.
I assume that whatever the split is Bernie's making some money out of this. Or at least he's in it just for the free hunting (which I thought hunting was free anyway?). Anyway, there's one thing to be sure of - hanging out in the Wachovia Center lobby sure don't pay like it used to.
