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.
For the full curriculum and other Explore Bowfishing resources, contact your state coordinator or contact the ATA.
If you are interested in acquiring the program for your state or organization, please contact Josh Gold,senior manager of R3 and state relations for more information.
