More NWTF …

I wanted to meet’s new writer Scott Ellis so I texted him and he told me where I could find him. Here is champion turkey caller Scott Ellis.

Scott is on the Prostaff of ThermaCELL and Tru-Glo Fiber Optics, Field Expert for Ol’ Tom Technical Gear and is on the Woodhaven Custom Calls Sting Team. Last year Scott joined us at as a writer. You can see his articles at Scott Ellis on

Later on I looked up Shane Hendershot. Recently, Shane started his own turkey call company, Hendershot Game Calls. I wanted to see them all. Shane demonstrated his mouth calls and they sounded great, so I bought one of each. Then I got one of his smooth sounding glass striker calls.

I visited with Shane Hendershot and his wife at NWTF.

Last year, in Florida, I interviewed Shane Hendershot about how he hunts and calls wild turkey gobblers. There are some great tip in this video Interview.

And here is the link for you to check out the web site and calls at Hendershot Game Calls.

Speaking of champion turkey callers, here is Doug Crabtree, the guy who got me started turkey hunting right back in the late 90’s when he hunted Rios with me on his first Grand Slam hunt with his bow. The next year both of us chased the Grand Slam together … successfully. Doug Crabtree is one of the very best turkey hunters in the county. No doubt about it, Doug Crabtree changed my life.

Below is Joella Bates. She is a top archery pro competitor with many winnings to her credit. She is always working on new and interesting projects in the outdoor and hunting world. Joella is also a world class bowhunter and is the first and probably only lady bowhunter to take the dangerous Big 5 in Africa. You can keep up with what’s going on with Joella like I do at Joella also has a Facebook Fan Page at Joella Bates Fan Page.

The busiest woman in archery and bowhunting, Joella Bates. We visited at the NWTF.

Here is Tim Endsley. Tim was around in the early days and was active on our live chat. He even won one of our many Sweepstakes and got a bunch of archery gear.

Tim is a professional rodeo star and he retired last year. Now he has a company named Bad Medicine Archery. They make arrow wraps, caps, T-Shirts and more. You can see him on Facebook at

Below is bowhunting TV show star and host, Corrie Brossman with his wife.

And there is more to see down the aisles…
