10 days in Texas: TV Spots, Learning About Long Bows and Bow Hunting Hogs
Dallas/Plano- Talkin' Long Bow Building.
We made the most out of our time at the new Dallas/Plano Woodcraft discussing and demonstrating the stave milling and laminating process- complete with an explanation on using tension to build better long bows. It served very well as a hands-on question and answer seminar.
San Antonio- Honoring our Military Veterans.
Monday morning found me on base at my Ft. Sam Houston/WFSC Wounded Warrior only class. My WW students and I appeared on San Antonio's FOX Channel 29 WKBB and NBC Channel 4 WOAI Morning Shows. Our host, Entertainment Reporter and San Antonio native stand up comedian Cleto Rodriguez kept us laughing in between and during spots. Photo Journalist Josh Campos was behind the camera keeping us on track, on time and most importantly.... in line!
South Texas- Hog Hunt!
While my Wounded Warrior student (from my November, 2014 WFSC Long Bow Class), was unable to make the trip, I was fortunate enough to spend a few days hunting on a good friend's ranch. As usual, there were lots of Javalina, whitetail deer and feral (wild) hogs. My buddy put me in a great spot and I ended up stalking and taking a nice HOG with my bow.
There's nothing better than hunting with a long bow you built with your own hands and putting fresh, truly organic meat on the table for your family and friends!
Although I have respected their requests to leave their names out, I'd like to send out a special "Thank You" to several very supportive folks who are always there to make things happen when I'm in Texas. Suffice it to say, they are all as modest as they are generous.
TEXANS.... GOTTA' LOVE 'EM!
