Josh and Sarah Bowmar are featured in a new interview at Wide Open Spaces. In response to questions about the ethics of spear hunting they relate that the bear that Josh took ran about sixty yards before collapsing and dying within, at most, ten seconds after getting impaled by a massive broadhead on the end of a seven-food spear.
The couple also expressed their thoughts about the subsequent move by Baltimore-based Under Armour to dump Sarah as the lead in Under Armour’s first women’s hunting gear campaign entitled “The Women of Will.”
“Why even have a hunt brand if you are not going to stand up for your hunters?” Sarah asked.
As you might imagine, Josh, who the company didn’t sponsor, is no longer a fan of the company. As he told Wide Open Spaces:
Josh, a huge advocate of Under Armour gear at the time, wore and supported Under Armour for no financial gain. He told us that after the stipend Under Armour gave them, they spent thousands of dollars of their own money on Under Armour gear.
“…we thought that [Under Armour] would have our back. We thought that we could trust them and we were going to be with them forever it just blows my mind and actually just hurts my soul.” said Josh.
They closed by saying they will never stop hunting. The only question that remains: will Under Armour ever stop folding to the pitchfork mafia?
Hunters are standing behind the couple who love one another and love to hunt. As for Under Armour…not so much.
