The Obed Wild and Scenic River, in partnership with bowyer Travis Gosnell, announces another primitive bow workshop on Tuesday, February 17, 2015, at the Obed visitor center. The program begins at 5 p.m. EST and will conclude by 7 p.m.
Travis Gosnell built his first bow as a child, and has always enjoyed a good challenge. He says, "At times, it (bowbuilding) is a kind of therapy from the rat race of life." Travis has his bachelor's degree in history and political science from Tennessee Technological University, and has worked a variety of jobs before becoming a teacher at Wartburg Middle School. He enjoys hunting, fishing, Native American archeology, and World War II history. Visitors will have the opportunity to help in the process of building a primitive bow and ask questions about other primitive weaponry.
