He’s started his own archery business, restored a vintage Mercedes, held the Outdoor 3-D Archery Word Champion title and appeared on numerous television shows and videos, including Realtree’s “Monster Bucks” video series. And though Travis Turner, a.k.a T-Bone, didn’t get to keep the Mercedes, he did manage to hold on to his passion for archery.
“Whether it’s in a tree stand or competing in an indoor arena, I just love to be around hunters and archers who have a desire to shoot and have a good time. I can’t tell you how many friends I’ve made just having fun…and building relationships are what this sport is all about.”
