This week on Gritty Bowmen we meet with Jordan and Casey Harbertson of MTN OPS. These two guys are salt-of-the-earth, good guys who LOVE what they're doing.
Performance and fitness are very important to me. But I care less about performance and more about long-term health and wellness. I want to be elk hunting in the mountains when I'm 70 years old-- and I'm not kidding. So I'm not willing to sacrifice my health at the future age of 65 for increased performance today. I'm a huge skeptic when it comes to supplements. Instead of buying supplements I have tried my best to get all my nutrition from healthy foods. I really don't like meal replacements or performance enhancing products. I prefer a good elk steak with a pile of veggies, high fiber fruit and some water.

“Experience in the field has caused me to change my views.” Aron Snyder
“I like a quieter bow. A heavy arrow makes your bow quieter.” Aron Snyder
“If you can shoot 280 feet per second that’s plenty fast.”
“I like seeing an animal with a shock wave like it got hit with a 50 cal BMG. It just makes me feel tougher I guess. So I like the heavy arrows.”
International Bow Hunters Association- IBO speed
"Shoot what you’re most comfortable with that gives you the best happy medium for speed, for kinetic energy for momentum the whole nine yards and not-like backpacks— not go in and say what’s the lightest? Don’t go in and try to get the fastest bow you can get. If you go in with your motive of trying to get the fastest bow possible— It’s probably also the hardest to shoot.”
