Welcome my friends and fellow bowhunters to THE Camo Collar blog presented by THE Working Class Bowhunter!
As some of you know my name is Clint Casper and I'm an arrow slinging, deer chasing, turkey tracking, mule deer glassing, elk bugling, shed antler addicted, freelance outdoor writing, good old boy from a small town in Carrollton, Ohio. Growing up, my dreams were to have huge adventures with my bow in hand, which led me to having an absolutely obsessive (ask my fiance) addiction to bowhunting. As long as I can remember I've been reading hunting magazines and books stating "Someday I'll be in these magazines." I recall saying this to myself thousands of times while reading the adventures of other bowhunters, which is what lit my fire for becoming a freelance outdoor writer. This dream of mine, I have been chasing down now for almost ten years and have had just as many ups as I have had downs, but I wouldn't trade where they have led me for the world.
I was lucky enough to meet the Working Class Bowhunter gang at the Archery Trade Association show a few years back and we all seemed to hit it off right away. We soon were talking about past adventures, upcoming hunts, future ex girlfriends like Eva Shockey and Miranda Lambert (who still just won't let it go), favorite bow companies, arrows, Dancing with the Stars (Eric is a huge fan) and of course one of my personal favorites - BEER. I felt at home with this bunch of hooligans and quickly wanted to get on a podcast with them as soon as I could. A few podcast episodes later with these three and it was no surprise that I needed to join forces with them. So I pitched this idea of starting a blog to them and luckily for me they loved the idea and so The Camo Collar was born!!! I literally cannot thank Stephen, Eric and Curt enough for allowing me to not only be on their podcasts, but to be a part of this awesome and, may I say, quite handsome (mainly Stephen) group of guys. I honestly can't thank them enough because to me, writing a blog for them is all a part of living out my dream of being a freelance outdoor writer. I'm blessed to have this opportunity and to hunt down my dreams with a bow in hand and then write about these adventures for the world to see.
These blogs are going to be informative, entertaining, straight forward and above all FUN. We're going to shoot for at least one blog a week which will cover lots of different topics that I want all of YOU to comment on. The point for us and this blog is to bring hunters together on various topics, to entertain, to inform and above all to just have a place where YOU all can laugh and get enjoyment from during your day.
We all want to thank each and every one of you for listening to the podcasts and those of you who will be reading these blogs each week. In closing, I'm going to ask these questions and hopefully I get some awesome feedback.
- What are your hunting dreams and what drives YOU to chase them?
- I want to know what motivates you to wake up on a cold morning at 4am to head to a treestand?
- Why you would throw a pack on your back and walk up a mountain in the pitch black just to maybe see, or hear a bull elk bugle in the cold, frosty morning air?
I can't wait to read some of these responses and as always I'm going to leave you with this-always chase your dreams and GO SHOOT YOUR BOW!
