Explore Bowfishing strengthens the archery community because it helps beginning archers expand their skills beyond basic target shooting. The program bridges the gap between introductory archery programs and hunting, while reaching new consumers in the angling market. Bowfishing engages more people in archery sports because it’s easy, accessible and relatively inexpensive.
Bowfishing is also good for the archery and bowhunting industry because it can recruit new archers, reactivate lapsed anglers and bowhunters, and create a gateway into bowhunting deer, turkeys and other game. Likewise, those factors open the door to more business and greater profits for ATA members.
