Bowman and his group are coming up with a special and first-of-its-kind event called Robert Crockett Longhunter Days. The event takes place on 19th and 20th April of 2013 at the Courthouse Square in Livingston.
The event starts with an opening ceremony at 9:00am on Friday followed by numerous activities from 10:00am to 5:00pm both on Friday and Saturday.
Bowman and crew will present themselves in different costumes along with long hunter and native camps set up around the square for evening fun and frolic.
The event includes various activities for children such as coloring contest, tomahawk throwing competition, skills seminars, scavenger hunt, colonial canoe races, frontier fashion show and a reunion of longhunter descendents.
The event also brings up a book signing with the author of “Be Safe and Keep Your Powder Day” – Darrel Skaggs and also a Sons and Daughters of the American Revolution tea. A blanket trade will also be held from 3:00 to 5:00pm on Friday.

In summer they have camp fires and black powder shoots. They meet at the Millard Oakley Public Library, on the fourth Thursday of the month at 6:30 pm.
