Deer Hunters Wanted.  

Jul 29, 2017

You most probably have seen the video.  You know, the one with the bluetooth trackable nock? The invention featured in this video leaves you saying "Why didn't I think of that"? Brandon Bates, the arena voice of the Professional Bull Riders and host of RMEF Team Elk on the Outdoor Channel, is also co-owner of Breadcrumb, the company behind the bluetooth trackable nock technology.  It takes more than a good idea to bring a product to market. It takes money, patience, time and a good plan. Brandon, who says he prefers to stay out of the spotlight,  is a television show host, PBR arena announcer, has spent many hours hunting the west with the likes of Cam Hanes, but is also an adventurous entrepreneur,  hardcore hunter and die-hard conservationist. Brandon shares his story.
