Ok, I know the title to this post might be a bit cheezy but I'm a big fan of 70's and 80's country music. I was listening to George Jones "who's gonna fill their shoes" earlier today and it got me thinking....who is going to fill the archery shoes in this current generation? We have the all time greats like Fred Bear, Glenn St. Charles, Art Young, Saxton Pope, and Howard Hill. Those archers truly promoted the pursuit with archery tackle and brought into what it is today. But.....who will be "that guy" for the current crop of bowhunters? The top of my list would be Barry and Gene Wensel, Ted Nugent (yes, you heard that right), and Chuck Adams. Besides that, we really don't have any great role models in the bow hunting community anymore. I'm sure some of you reading will be thinking of Michael Waddell, Will Primos or any other of a host of tv personalities. Archie Nesbitt and Steve Kobrine are good ambassadors but they are able to hunt more places than people of a normal income bracket ever could. I just don't see it. While they might promote bowhunting by coming up with a cheezy slogan or tagline.....I don't think of them as truly pioneers like the generation of old. Are there any "heroes" left in bowhunting? Am I missing something? Please don't take this post as a negative bash but I really do wonder who will be known in history as great leaders in bowhunting for this time period. Will there be any?
