Thousands gathered Sunday for the last day of the Big Buck Classic at the CenturyLink Center.

One of the busier booths was "Just for Does" created for women who hunt with a bow and arrow.

Michelle Wales, a 16-year bow hunter started the company a year ago so women could still be stylish when hunting.

“We still want to look good in the woods, especially if you get that big bear or deer you want look good for the pictures.”

Wales sells catchy t-shirts infused with pink and a scent free product line for women to wear so game can't pick up on any perfumes.

“With bow hunting you’re really outsmarting the deer,” says Wales.

“Scent is really a big factor in it.”

Also a big draw was an auction for the Ted Nugent Kamp for Kids.

The one day camp allows kids from ages 8-14 to learn all about the outdoors, including archery, game calling, and fishing.

People bid on all types of items, including a Ted Nugent signed guitar and an African safari, with proceeds going to supplement much of the cost of the camp.

Kevin Markt helped organize the auction and says in the past several thousand dollars has been raised for the popular camp.

“Most of us are outdoorsmen and we just want to see the kids outside experiencing nature instead of playing video games inside all the time.”

The Ted Nugent Kamp for Kids has space for 100 kids to attend in Papillion and 75 kids in Iowa.
