On this episode of Gritty Bowmen I sit down with friend and Tradlife enthusiast, Matt Davis. Matt is the VP of Sales & Marketing at MTN OPS. Matt began working in the hunting industry for Hoyt Archery about 7 years ago and as a result of that interaction he developed a fondness for traditional archery.
