On this week's episode of the Pennsylvania Woodsman we are chatting with Phil Holcombe about the Pennsylvania Bowhunters Festival. Phil is now the third generation leading with his team of volunteers to make this event happen annually. It is the oldest gathering of bowhunters in the world! It's an opportunity for fellowship, comradery, archery shooting, networking, and just pure bowhunting fun!
Phil shares with us some of the history of the festival as it began with his Grandfather and Great Uncles over 60 years ago in Forksville, PA. One of the most memorable parts of this shoot is the novelty running deer shoot, and Phil discusses the engineering occured to develop this attractive target! There are also numerous courses throughout the fairgrounds that make the event too big to handle in a single day. Not to mention the food and vendors that are present every year. This event is held annually in September and is something that is fun for the whole family. Tune in to hear all about it, and check out pabowhunters.com for more information about the event and how you can join this year!
