The Obed Wild and Scenic River, in partnership with bowyer Travis Gosnell, announces this year's first primitive bow workshop on Thursday, January 15, 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 (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 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. Travis is now excited about the opportunity to pass on his passion for primitive weaponry to others. Visitors who attend the primitive bow workshop will have the opportunity to help in the process of building a primitive bow and ask Travis questions about other primitive weapons.
