    I am new to archery and am looking for a mentor because I was never taught by anyone in the family due to nobody being a hunter, would like to find a mentor to teach me and fill my head with knowledge. I am an upstanding person no criminal record not even a speeding ticket if anyone would take me under their belt I would be very grateful thanks for everything and good hunting! You can either reach me by post here or you can send me a text 704-773-1390 thank you!

    Welcome!!
    Welcome to the forums!! I do not have any contacts around there but hopefully someone might can chime in. Just be careful....There are a lot of people that like to take advantage of 'newbies'...Just use your better judgment lol....I would see a local pro shop and try to build up a relationship....It has worked for me....

    Welcome
    Hey boss welcome to the site. The advice I give to everybody trying to get started bow hunting is to practice more than you think you should. As far as hunting goes, get out there. You can learn more in one day in the woods than you can anywhere else. Just be careful and good hunting!

    Hey Jeremy....I have an ex brother-in-law that lives in Concord and is big into Bow hunting. He hangs with a friend that runs a butchering outfit called the deer shed or something like that up there. His name is Ty Travis......look him up and tell him Viperx4 sent you aka Jeff Huggins!

    P.S. Ty shot the number 3 largest non-typical in West Virginia in 2007

    3rd in state?
    Viper, Wow if this is the same Ty Travis...That SUCKS!!! Sounds like something my Ex's would write about me but in Ty's defense, This article you found was posted in 2005 and Ty killed his great Buck in WV in 2006 and it's Not number 3 but rather number 16 in the BTR record Books...This caught my attention because I know Jess Kelly personally and his Buck is Number 2 in the state and I knew I had never heard Ty's name anywhere close to it...But anyway, He killed a great Buck with a bow unless that's another lie he told lol

    Jeremy, Welcome to the site and since your in Concord...You might be aware of a little area/township called China Grove between Concord and Salisbury...There's a great Archery shop there called S&S Graham Archery that could help you tremendously!!! In a Tragic accident last July, 1 of the owners (Sonya Graham) was killed in a Fire at the Shop so it's new location is within rock throwing distance of the Old 1...If you decide to go, let me know and I could meet you there and help ya out..It's about a 30 minute drive for me and I'm 45 mins from Bass Pro in Concord...Hope that gives you a Idea in distance...They also have a Web-Page..Just Google S&S graham Archery..They Sell Mathews, Hoyt and Bowtech and are top notch in my opinion....Good Luck

    Thanks for the update viper deff dont want to get mixed in with the wrong crowd. Just a young guy wanting to get into a sport I know nothing about lol, I wish I knew more ways to find someone willing to teach me it is hard to just go out on your own and try it and im very skeptical of that I dont want to end up getting hurt and be stuck because im alone.

    LOL
    LOL GT it is the same Ty but he probably lied about the third thing. It was a 16 point buck. I used to have a picture but, after he tried to take my sister for 120K, which she got back thru courts I pretty much wrote him off! LOL He then claimed to be a preacher.....that's how he sucked my sitser in! My Brother worked for him.......same TY Travis!

    Dang
    Yeah I think I have that West V Mag with his story in it and how a Friend of his from NC took him to West V to Wyoming County which is 1 of 4 Bow Hunting Only counties and pretty much put him right on that Buck lol. I couldn't believe it was a 160+ deer though, And it was only scored as a 15 point and placed in the Semi-Irregular category. It did have a freaking looking Rack though..Anyway...That's alot of money!! Glad he wasn't successful at that.
