BowTech Subject of Murder Investigation


Eugene, OR (January 26, 2006) CBS hit television series CSI: New York will feature BowTech compound bows in an upcoming episode. Episode #214, titled "Stuck on You", is scheduled to air Wednesday, February 1st at 10:00 PM, PST.


Due to the efforts of Michael Blanton of Hunter's Friend, a BowTech dealer in Kentucky, CSI: New York selected a fully outfitted 2006 Allegiance and a 2006 Target Blue-Chrome Tribute to use as props in the episode. The producers were looking for an archery expert when they discovered Blanton through the Internet.

"I'm not sure what will come of this", Blanton commented, "but I'm quite excited about the possibilities. You couldn't buy advertising like this if you tried and there may be a lot of folks asking 'Where can I get a bow like that?' the day after the show airs." Over nineteen million viewers tune in to watch CSI: New York weekly.

The plot evolves around a murder investigation in which an assailant shoots two individuals from a rooftop with a high-powered compound bow (BowTech Allegiance). CSI gets a lead on the shooter's identity, and they search the suspect's house only to discover a secret hiding place for the bow. Later at the lab, the BowTech Tribute is used for forensic testing and is shot by CSI: New York stars Gary Sinise (Detective Mack Taylor) and Anna Belknap (Investigator Lindsey Monroe).

"What a great opportunity for additional brand exposure to millions of potential new archers," stated Gene Shands, BowTech Vice President of Marketing. "The CSI folks required a high performance archery product that represented the industry's latest and greatest technology, and they got it."


BowTech manufactures and distributes the world's finest compound bows and archery equipment. Founded in 1999, BowTech's corporate offices and manufacturing facilities are located on the outskirts of Eugene, Oregon. Today, BowTech divisions include WaterDog Surface Technologies formed in December 2003 and Diamond Archery acquired in September 2004.

Tree Saddle Hunting: Best New Climbing Aider Options

A climbing aider is a device that you use in conjunction with a stick that helps you gain more height per stick, but at the addition of very little weight to the stick setup. An aider can provide one or two more steps per each stick section, thereby greatly increasing height potential when needed and allowing you to carry fewer total sticks to gain a specific height.
