In a previous post I reported about the highlights of the past hunting season and it looks like that the new year will be equally exiting. We’re of to a good start.
My new website Othmar Vohringer Outdoors has taken off better then I expected and the response I get is encouraging. It definitely pays to have a website to promote a business or service. Several people inquired about my hunting courses and the seminars. I am particularly proud that it looks very much like that I will be holding my very first hunting seminar at one of the biggest outdoor shows this spring right here in my own home province. This might sound a little strange to some of my readers but in all these years I have never given a seminar in British Columbia or Canada. So I am very pleased that finally I been given the opportunity to play a home game.
With turkey hunting just around the corner I get calls and emails about my turkey hunting course almost every day. This is a very unique course and it seems people are surprised if they learn that my courses are not like a seminar or dry theory in a classroom setting but actual hand one courses where the “students” are directly involved. Rather then just sit and listen or read form charts and books my courses are designed to show hunters how to be more successful. In the course a hunter will not be told how to use a turkey call, he will learn physically right there how use a turkey call. The students will be taken into the field and shown where the turkeys are and how the birds use the terrain to travel from one location to another, where to set up an ambush and so on. I always found that showing and doing at the actual location is a better way to learn then just digesting theories sitting in a stuffy room.
I am getting the hunting course and seminar schedule together as I write this. If you’re interested in having me appear on a hunting event or book a course there is no better time then to do it now and not leave it until all dates are booked out.
Recently I have not posted much on my blogs or visited other blogs. The new year started off busy leaving me little time for much else, including nursing my cold. The upcoming annual Ice Fishing Derby on January 18, keeps me busy too. I actually just came in from an afternoon spent in the cold and snow covered outdoors, video taping a community service broadcast to promote the event. I am still chilled to the bone but it was great. I made some new connections and walked away with new plans and ideas for the future.
