Woods & Water Weekend

I spent three days with my friend and outdoor writer Dennis Neely helping him promote "Traditional Black Powder Hunting & Shooting".
It was a good weekend. We had good weather with a lot of people stopping by and asking a lot of great question.
I had my display set to show what I would use for a day in the woods hunting. I also talked a little about the history of Fort Detroit in the 1760 and being a member of Hopkins Rangers with a display of my kit.

Nap Time!
