Blog of the Week: The SoCal Bowhunter



This week's blog of the week will be of interest primarily to other hunters - The SoCal Bowhunter by Al Quackenbush. Al is a New York native who now lives in southern California with his wife and daughter. He has been bowhunting for over 27 years and routinely goes back to New York to hunt with his father and brother. 


Al has a well written and informative blog. One of the first posts I read after finding his blog was a gear review. It happened to be his newest post at the time and I was impressed with the thoroughness of his evaluation. Al has reviewed many products and always keys in on the important points. I get the sense from his writing that he is being very impartial and not just praising a product for the sake of giving it good press. If he found something he didn't like, he wouldn't be afraid to say so. In addition to reviews, Al also covers various hunting topics, including his own adventures. 


Al is a pro staff member at DIYbowhunter.com and enjoys participating in do-it-yourself hunts. I didn't know this until recently, but he is also a professional photographer. He has been consistent in commenting here on my blog and always provides me with useful feedback for which I am very appreciative. 


If you enjoy hunting, especially bowhunting, and haven't been following The SoCal Bowhunter, you are missing out! Al is also active on Twitter and you can follow him there at @AlQuackenbush. Give Al a well deserved visit. You won't be sorry!
