Nathan and I spent some time at the Hunter's Expo at the Overland Park Convention Center this afternoon.
We were able to hear a talk by Travis Turner (a.k.a. Realtree's "T-Bone") on archery. He's a world class archer and all-around expert on bow set-ups, tuning, and shooting. Travis spoke on the archery topic of kinetic energy and it's importance for good arrow penetration on big game. He also sold me on the need to add weight to my broadheads. Simply put, the more weight front of center on the arrow shaft, the better. At the end of his talk he opened it up for archery questions, the dude is a serious archery stud. There's nothing about a bow set up he doesn't know. We got to chat with him briefly after his talk and also got our picture with him.
We also stopped by the Ross Archery booth where our good buddy Mike Osbourn is the national sales manager. Mike set up our first bows over five years ago and we remain in touch with him. He's a great guy and a brother in the Lord. He convinced me to switch to a Ross bow last season and I couldn't be happier with the choice.
I can't think of a better way to take a break from sermon prep than attending a hunting expo.
