For professionals, like Dan McCarthey, who make their living off competitive events and sponsorships, having fewer events makes doing well at them even more important. "Every event is important," McCarthy said with a half grin on his face
He and his wife Emily walked the course Friday, they looked like they had just crawled out of a race car window at Daytona. Their sponsor laden black and yellow shirts showed the importance of their doing well.
The IBO isn't just the competitions. "As state game agencies are increasingly recognizing that bowhunting can play an important part in modern suburban American deer management, the IBO is prepared to play a pro-active role in the process and providing the best-trained, best prepared and most ethical bowhunters," the group posted on its website.
The event concludes Sunday at Two Mile.
