Wow, it’s 2012 already and I’m pushing it to get things done before the fall season gets here. I’m getting ready for the largest archery trade show in the country called the ATA show, which will be all of next week in Columbus Oh. It’s a busy time for everyone in the new year.
I offer support to the companies I pro staff for in addition to meeting with nearly everybody who has anything to do with bow hunting. I’ll be talking to magazine editors, product manufacturers, inventors, seminar producers, etc, etc, etc. There will be some pictures taken and even a few autograph’s given. The days are long and begin just as the sun is coming up, and finish when it’s time for bed. All in all, it’s a great show to be at! Having said that, I owe a big “Thank You” to Polaris, Bear Archery, Muzzy, Bushrag, Vital Gear, Trophy Ridge and many other companies that have supported me.
This year I’ll be adding some products to this website as a convenience to my readers. Simple things like carbon masks, etc. Mostly things people have trouble finding. And as promised, I will have more how-to videos! I’ll get a better camera this year, so hopefully the quality will surpass the previous flicks. Hopefully, I’ll have my book finished too!
This last season came and went by too fast! In the season of 2010, I spent about 45 days in the woods hunting. This last season I spent about 11. With one week left here in Illinois and the ATA show being next week, i’ll be hard pressed to find at least one more day to hunt. Even though I bagged a nice buck in October, it appears I may have to eat my second tag here in Illinois. Oh well, that’s hunting and I wouldn’ t have it any other way!
Hopefully I’ll have some great new products to report on when I get back from the ATA show. If there is anything in particular that you’re interested in, let me know and I’ll see if it’s at the show. If it is, I’ll take pictures and find out what I can for you. Until then: I hope your new year is off to a great start!
Happy New Year fellow hunters!
