Posted on January 2nd, 2013

Kalamazoo, Mich.Shoot on over to the 18th Annual Traditional Bowhunters Expo – this is an event you won’t want to miss.

With nearly 100 of the nation’s top traditional bowhunting bowyers, dealers and craftsmen coming to Kalamazoo County Fairgrounds Jan. 25-27, 2013, show organizer Sharon Brumm said “this is the place to try new bows and see the newest products and supplies.

“If you’re a hardcore traditional archery person, you wouldn’t want to miss it,” Brumm said.  “There’s traditional archery equipment, wood arrows, many custom-built bows, and selfbows, which is a bow made from one piece of wood. There are leather goods, wool hunting clothing, broadhead displays, and so much more.”

This year’s show also brings two guest speakers: Monty Browning and E. Donnall Thomas, Jr., with topics ranging from bowhunting Alaska to New Zealand.

Workshops include selfbows, sinew backing, wood arrows, flint knapping, Flemish strings and a new bow test area. The show also offers a supervised shooting area with bows and arrows supplied for children.

The show is open to everyone. Admission is $10 for the weekend, and kids younger than 12 are free. Show hours are 5 to 9 p.m. Friday; 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. Saturday; 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Sunday.
