A collection of very brief cartoons, mostly revolving around sight gags and puns, on the subject of hunting and fishing, and the men who are addicted to them. Written by

Meet Ed Jones, typical American sportsman on opening day of trout season. Since this is a Tex Avery Cartoon, viewers can expect many sight gags and lots of slang made literal coming at them fast and loose. The first section starts off a running gag that wherever Ed goes, there's a crowd of hunters hidden away. Once he steps into his fishing boat, we are treated to some jokes in the style of 'The car/house of the future' and get useful safety tips involving bait and hats. To go into further detail would be spoiling, so I'll bite my tongue for now (insert cry of pain here).
Being an all round sportsman, Ed switches over to duck season for some of the best gags in the picture featuring duck calls, different types of guns and the use of dogs. Animal lovers beware: we catch sight of a dead duck (but tastefully drawn). The bit with the Canadian honkers later resurfaced on Sesame Street. Finally Ed meets his match during deer season, where the emphasis lies on silly outfits and dumb Hillbillies. Might also be offensive to mothers in law. Heck, this whole cartoon is offensive in a Mel Brooks kind of way, but I'll bet even the most hardened activist will have cracked a smile by the end.
