Traditional Outdoors Podcast – Episode #16 – The Great Northern Story with Jerry Brumm

Jerry Brumm in the Great Northern Shop

In Episode #16 both Nick and I are recording on location at the Compton Traditional Bowhunter’s Rendezvous in Berrien Springs Michigan. We managed to pull Jerry Brumm away from his booth for about an hour to discuss bowhunting and how he came to form the Great Northern Bowhunting Company.  We discussed bowhunting, Great Northern Bows and Quivers and more archery history, the Traditional Bowhunters Expo, the Great Lakes Longbow Invitational and more.
