Bizarre Game Targets Women: Hunting for Bambi: Parts 1 & 2

Warning: The content and video in this story may be offensive to viewers.

(July 10) -- It's a new form of adult entertainment, and men are paying thousands of dollars to shoot naked women with paint ball guns. They're coming to Las Vegas to do it. This bizarre new sport has captured the attention of people around the world, but Channel 8 Eyewitness News reporter LuAnne Sorrell is the only person who has interviewed the game's founder.

George Evanthes has never been hunting. "Originally I'm from New York. What am I going to hunt? Squirrels? Someone's cats. Someone's dogs? I don't think so," said Evanthes. Now that he's living in Las Vegas , he's finally getting his chance to put on his camouflage, grab a rifle and pull the trigger, but what's in his scope may surprise you. He's not hunting ducks or even deer. He's hunting woman. Naked women.

"I've done this three times," says Nicole, one of the three women allowing themselves to be shot at. "I've done this seven times," says Skyler, another woman participating. "I've done it seven times," says Gidget the third woman.

Hunting for Bambi is the brain child of Michael Burdick. Men pay anywhere from $5000 to $10,000 for the chance to come to the middle of the desert to shoot what they call "Bambi's" with a paint ball gun. Burdick says men have come from as far away as Germany. The men get a video tape of their hunt to take home and show their friends.

Burdick says safety is a concern, but the women are not allowed to wear protective gear -- only tennis shoes. Today while the Eyewitness News cameras were rolling, one woman chose to wear bikini bottoms but normally all they wear is their birthday suits.

Burdick says hunters are told not shoot the women above the chest, but admits not all hunters follow the rules. "The main goal is to be true as true to nature as possible. I don't go deer hunting and see a deer with a football helmet on so I don't want to see one on my girl either," said Burdick.

The paint balls that come out of the guns travel at about 200 miles per hour. Getting hit with one stings even with clothes on, and when they hit bare flesh, they are powerful enough to draw blood.

Evanthes shot one of the women and says, "I got the one with the biggest rack."

Gidget is the one who took the paint ball shot to the rear. She says, "It hurt. It really hurt. I didn't think it was going to be that bad. When asked if she cried she says,"yeah, a little bit."

So why do women agree to strip down and run around the desert dodging paint balls? Nicole says it's good money. "I mean it's $2500 if you don't get hit. You try desperately not to and it's $1000 if you do, said Nicole.

Now both the men and women say this is all good, clean fun, but in Part 2 of this story, reporter LuAnne Sorrell spoke with a psychologist who says for some men playing out this sexual aggression may lead to other more violent acts against women.

I was shocked, thought it was bizzare, and then remembered the porn industry and it took on a better perspective.

Yeah, and those deer better not be gettin' no boob implants, either. I mean, I like my nature natural, ya know? And what's more natural than shootin' at naked showgirls in nothin' but tennies?

Man! Those chicks is crazy! I've done some fairly serious Paintball, and I tell ya, it stings like hell even through a heavy denim jacket over a thick sweatshirt. I've been nailed on the back of the neck, and had nasty, bruised, golf-ball sized welt for a week! And no face/eye protection?!?!?! That is just plain nuts. Besides, what the heck is the point in taking a trophy rack if ya don't mount it?

I just checked out the website www.huntingforbambi.com ; I was thoroughly unsurprised to find it typically, tastelessly juvenile, in a sleazey, crassly commercial sort of way. Frankly, I gotta say, I think there is more media hype than substance to the endeavor. Oh, and as for the reported concern that it could lead to something darker, well, I doubt anybody with 5 or 10 grand to burn for an afternoon's "fun" is likely to be your average social predator. Still, the very concept is a sad commentary on the lack of taste and judgement that has made the internet such a success. I'm sure the website sells lots of their pictures and videos, which seems to me the main focus. The news story is just great advertising for the clowns behind it. I'm sure they'll do well.

Really. I begin to wonder just what else these guys would be doing if they were sure they could get away with it.

Exactly Roger.

sadistic goons is what they are...as far as blaming the 'bambis' well, they're either foolish or desperate for money.

They're not in the same category as the goons who would shoot at them.

Hunting for Bambi would not be my idea of a happy, social afternoon--either as hunter or as prey.

Still, live and let live--although if the Mighty Hunters were targeting animals instead of consenting adults, I'd probably be a bit indignant.

Jeez, sounds like complete igonrance and lack of self esteem on both sides. Reminds me of a pointed and funny bit Joe Rogan did on relationships, with a girl hanging out with her girlfriends who is telling them why she got back with her abusive boyfriend: "Well, he promised he won't hit me in the FACE anymore, just the thigh, and not full strength." If they consent on all sides, leave 'em to it. The herd needs thinning out.

Saw this on the news this morning. Great advertising for them. 'Spect they'll be booked solid for a while.


Thing is, they might pull in a lot of cash for the hunts, but I imagine a cantelope-size welt on your ass will cut in will cut into your stripping income.

I got the link from Europe today. Evidentally the Mayor of Las Vegas doesn't like the publicity as he is vowing to shut it down. This as reported on the national evening news by NBC (I think). Forget about the website. What does it say about the participants? Seriously, now.. Did I hear correctly that the men were paying, or willing to pay, ten grand for this wholesome sporting activity?
