I'm not sure why the older I get the years seem to fly by faster and faster. If i'm not thinking about preparing the properties for food plots, or hunting during the season the next thing that excites me the most is the ATA show each year. This show is where you get to see alot of industry friends, all the new bowhunting gear coming out for the upcoming season. Last year I was just to busy to switch out my bow but this year, I have already seen and have heard about some pretty cool items. The ATA does a fine job putting together this trade show and has done so for years, its very organized and attracts just about everyone in the bowhunting industry. The only two compaines that I know will not be here are Scent-lok and Mathews - which I don't know why?
Justin and I arrived here today and was invited to Outtech's Innovations Party - kind of a sneak peak to all of the Outtech's companies that they rep for. They really out did it this year, great appitizers, Bad Boy Buggies gave away a buggy and country music singer Craig Morgan put on one heck of a show. I'm not a huge country music fan myself, but I had a good time at the party and could tell everyone else was too!
Were going to be busy tommorow seeing all of the new products, and we will be sharing what we find out right here on the site!

Angie Denny from Table Mountain Outfitters, Art Helin from New Archery Products, and our own Justin Zarr enjoying the pre-show festivities. Justin is always good for an interesting photo!
I'm interested to find out what this "Invisible Hunter" is all about....
As far as the ending of my hunting season goes, I was able to harvest a late season doe and a good friend of mine Don Spolum harvested a nice 140 class while hunting during a cold front. Hunting late season food sources before a cold front is a great way to connect on a late season buck, no doubt. Congrats to Don on a great trophy, I'm glad I got to share the experience with him.
