Testing the waters in a different area than we are used to, we are finding that the stats for the outdoor, hunting, fishing and camping categories rank high with our Farm Collector and Gas Engine Magazine subscribers as well as the Grit and Mother Earth News readers. In light of that, I got to attend the Buckmaster Expo with colleagues Sheila Kearney and Denise Wiscombe. The Expo was held August 17-19, 2012, in Montgomery, Alabama. Sheila and I had the privilege of meeting Jody Mulder, Marketing Manager of Buckmaster, and his wife, Paige, along with Jordan Broderick, at the World Fishing and Outdoor Expo in New York in March. Jody graciously invited us to their Expo and it was a great show to see!
 
We got to meet Jackie Bushman, CEO of Buckmaster and well-known outdoorsman, Michael Waddell, Travis Turner and Nick Mundt of “The Bone Collectors”, plus Troy Landry with his sons Jacob and Chase from the TV Show “The Swamp People”! There was a 3 hour wait in line to meet them; they have quite a following!

Sheila was able to get her picture taken with Troy in the hotel lobby, and she’s even sporting her Jayhawk shirt in Alabama territory!
