reports in July 2003 reveal that a company in Las Vegas is offering
opportunities to "hunt" naked women. The content of the
web site is so offensive that one would assume it's a hoax, but it doesn't
appear to be. Following is an article from KLAS TV, along with the
text from the hunting company's home page and "book a hunt"
Hunting for Bambi Part III
By LuAnne Sorrell
(July 16, 2021) -- Channel 8's
exclusive story about the adult paint ball business, "Hunting for
Bambi" has created an uproar across the country. The story about men
hunting down women with paint ball guns is now one of the most
searched-for-articles on the world wide web. Today it was the topic of
discussion on several national news programs. While many people are
interested, most are outraged. Others say the whole thing is a hoax, and
that the hunt we covered was a publicity stunt. Channel Eight Eyewitness
News reporter LuAnne Sorrell, who broke the story, went looking for proof.
"I've been up for three
days," says "Hunting for Bambi" founder Michael Burdick.
The media can't get enough of "Hunting for Bambi." Stations from
across the country, and as far away as Germany, have been calling Burdick
Wednesday, we caught up with him
between his satellite interviews on the O'Riley Factor and MSNBC, and
Burdick says "Tomorrow night is Diane Sawyer. I'm getting tons of
emails from women wanting to be Bambis."
But not all of the emails have been
positive. At Channel Eight we've received over 600,000 hits on our web
site on Monday alone. Emails are coming in from outraged women's groups
and furious paint ball players.
Many people are questioning whether
this absurd new sport is real. The snopes.com web site is one of several
which call the whole thing a big hoax. Channel Eight Eyewitness News
reporter LuAnne Sorrell went back to the scene, and asked Burdick directly
if he had staged the hunt for the cameras, to which Burdick replied,
"No. I'll tell you I wish I was that cleaver."
He admits that five weeks ago he
kicked off his web site only to sell his videos, but, he says, in only
days, men were calling and emailing saying "I want to be in a video,
I want to hunt one of the girls, that would be awesome. I'll pay lots of
money." He continued, "the hunt you went on was exactly the
eighteenth hunt. We have done 20 hunts since you, and we've booked one for
Friday and Saturday."
To verify Burdicks comments, we
contacted the company that hosts the HuntingForBambi web site. That
California company, asked us not to use their name, but confirmed that
they had actually processed orders for several so-called "hunts"
in the past and they continue to get new orders in.
But a lot of people are outraged
that hunting naked women is being allowed to take place in Las Vegas.
Eyewitness News has learned that the city has received so many calls that
they have now launched an investigation.
Jim DiFiori is the Business Service
Manager for the City of Las Vegas. His office is in charge of issuing
business licenses. DiFiori told Eyewitness new, "We're doing an
investigation on the issues and we hope to complete this investigation in
a very short period of time."
In response to the investigation
Burdick said, "I am absolutely positive they are not going to find
anything, because there is nothing to hide. I'll open our door at anytime
to anybody." Prostitution is not part of his business, Burdick says,
and his business is 100% legitimate, but we decided to do some digging of
our own to see just how squeaky clean his business is.
Real Men Outdoor Productions, which
is the company name listed on the "Hunting For Bambi" web site,
is incorporated in the State of Nevada. We also found a valid business
license under that name that was issued last month by the City of Las
Vegas, but the hunt we went on last week was outside of the city limits,
and the license that was issued was for sell hunting videos over the
Internet, not for hunting women with paint ball guns.
DiFiori says, "any type of
nude operation needs to be considered for zoning purposes as a sexually
oriented business," and a special license is needed for that.
Additional licenses may also be need for an escort service and a paint
ball business. Burdick says he sells video tapes of all of his hunts to
the hunters, so the business license he has, is the only one he needs.
The city's investigation into
whether bambi will be allowed to run free within the city is expected to
be completed by the end of this week.
One more update: a lot of the
complaints Eyewitness News and Burdick received were from paint ball
players who were upset that the women being hunted do not wear protective
gear. Burdick says he's decided to make one concession. The women being
hunted will now wear protective eyewear.
