Host Tim Farmer’s New Bow Aims At Tech Support This Weekend On “Kentucky Afield” TV
Bow hunters target technical expertise on “Kentucky Afield” television this weekend, Sept. 25 and 26.
The first thing bow hunters should put in their sights for the fall archery season is professional set-up. Host Tim Farmer, a life-long archer, uncrates a brand new state-of-the-art compound bow and takes it to the shop for fine-tuning on this week’s show.
We follow Farmer to an archery outfitter in Louisville to tweak his new bow to work best with his preferred arrows, tips, draw weight and more. We learn that it doesn’t matter whether you have the latest high-tech bow or simply one that you’ve carried for years - precision tuning aids performance in the field.
