The Obed Wild and Scenic River will host, in partnership with bowyer Travis Gosnell, another primitive bow workshop on Thursday, December 11, 2014, at the Obed Visitor Center. The program begins at 5 p.m. EST and will conclude by 7 p.m. Visitors will have the opportunity to help in the process of building a primitive bow and ask Travis questions about other primitive weaponry.

Travis Gosnell built his first bow as a child and has always enjoyed a good challenge. He says, "At times, it (bow building) is a kind of therapy from the rat race of life." Travis has his bachelor's degree in history and political science from TTU 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.
