I was very grateful to be invited to the ATA (Archery Trade Association) trade show today. It is a trade show where all the industries best of the best show off their new products to each other and vendors and so on. When I approached the Copper John booth, there it was, an 8' x15' backdrop of a photo I took for them of Troy Gentry at full draw! It was surreal seeing it!

I got to meet many of my hunting heros...Lee and Tiffany Lakosky, Nick Mundt, Travis T-Bone Turner, Michael Waddell, David Blanton, Eva Shockey, and many more!

Many of you may not know these names, but in the hunting industry, they are huge and it was a pleasure to shake their hands! http://img.tapatalk.com/d/14/01/08/ezu8a3e7.jpghttp://img.tapatalk.com/d/14/01/08/ehejunum.jpghttp://img.tapatalk.com/d/14/01/08/mujatenu.jpghttp://img.tapatalk.com/d/14/01/08/satagyqe.jpg

Congratulations Mike. I've been hearing about the new Copper John sight, I haven't seen any photos of it though. I'll probably stick with the Spot Hogg for now as I have no complaints, I do know the Copper John is supposed to easily adjustable.

I wish I could have went to the ATA, I've seen some of the guys from Indiana that I went to grade school with there. I wished I hadn't have gotten out of the outdoor scene.
