Since returning from Newfoundland in early October, I’ve been trying to catch up at work and at home, and get in a little whitetail hunting. A conference for work took me to Denver, where I spent several hours one evening with Tommy and Danny Clum at Rocky Mountain Specialty Gear . They are great folks and their store is as close to a traditional archery mecca as you are ever going to find. It’s well worth the visit if you are passing through Colorado!
The hunting has been going well. Since returning from Newfoundland, I hung up the 55#, 1972 Super Kodiak in favor a 50#, 1967 Shakespeare Ocala. I have been redeeming myself for the “moose miss” and I’m happy to say the freezer is filling up and there's some antler to show, as well! I’ll provide some hunting stories and photos soon, but that’s not the purpose of this post.
Let’s get down to business! This past weekend, I drew the names for The Classic Year BowVote prize winners. I had planned to draw this out over several blog posts, but given that hunting season is in full swing and then the holidays will be upon us, I have decided to do it in one shot.
Without further ado, the winners of the following prizes are:
T-shirt of your choice from Traditional Spirit Outdoors: Chris Walker.
Signed copy of A Traditional Bowhunters Path: Jeremie Smith.
Custom wood arrows from 3Rivers Archery: Gary Savaloja.
Bear Super Kodiak bow from RMS Gear: Craig Stamper.
Congratulations to these lucky winners and many, many thanks to RMS Gear and 3Rivers Archery for providing prizes!
I’ll be in touch with the winners to work out details.
Keep the Traditional Spirit Alive!
I’m Ron Rohrbaugh, a professional conservation biologist, author, and long-time traditional bowhunter. For the next year, I’ll be hunting exclusively with vintage archery gear in what I’m calling The Classic Year. We’ll explore natural history and travel, geography and culture, and of course archery and hunting. The adventures and stories will be steeped in conservation, both past and present.
