For 2009, The Maryland Bowhunting Hall of Fame is to induct Joe Subolefsky.
He is also known as our very own “Timberspirit”. He is best known as an intense deer hunter with unsurpassed woodsmanship skill and stealth. He is the creator of fine traditional bows aptly called Timberspirit which Joes produced from the early 80's to as recent as 2004 I believe.
They where and remain quite popular to collectors and admirers of fine archery weaponry. From the trees of Canada to the trees in Iowa, Joe can be found in or near a deer laden woodlot most of the time.
When he is not working as an Operating Engineer, on his website, or hunting, Joe loves to spend his time with his 3 daughters.
Joe is a virtual expert on hunting the elusive White-tailed deer (Odocoileus virginianus). It is his passion and at time obsession. Because of this, he came to create the website http://www.marylandwhitetail.com.
His induction is well deserved with what he has contributed to the great state of Marylands’ bowhunters. Through his craft and vision, he has given back to the state what he has thrived in for nearly his entire life to date.
Taught by his late father Joe Subolefsky Sr., he has taken his dad’s legacy into his own bright future to be passed on to the future bowhunters of Maryland. A staunch protector of our great sport and keeper of the flame so to speak. Thanks Joe, this is long overdue and well deserved.
Mentor and mentee.
