BF039: Travis “T-Bone” Turner – Bone Collector Co-host – Part 1

Travis "T-Bone" Turner

Part 1 of a 2-part interview (checkout episode 040 for part 1). Travis “T-Bone” Turner, co-host of the Bone Collector and Realtree Road Trips TV shows, is described on the Outdoor Channel’s website as the “go-to-guy for anything archery, a constant cut-up, and the man with the uncanny ability to consistently take home big game.” He decided to leave an enjoyable and well-paying job at Mercedes so that he could pursue his passion in archery and the outdoors, despite all the uncertainties of this huge career change.

Guest’s Opening Quote:

“It wasn’t like I had a goal to be on a TV show back in the early 90’s. Meaning I just wanted to do something in the outdoor industry and I was open minded enough to know that if doors opened for me, I would be open minded to it and take those opportunities.”
