Take your chapter archery program to the next level. Sign up for our NEW Explore Bowhunting Instructor Workshop.

The League is partnering again with the Archery Trade Association (ATA) on a League-exclusive workshop at discounted prices.

Interest in archery and bowhunting is growing. A survey conducted for ATA by Responsive Management found that almost 10 percent of U.S. adults participated in archery in 2015. Of those, 35 percent participated in bowhunting some or all of the time. And bowhunters were the most avid archery participants. Of the adults who bowhunted, more than 25 percent did it every year!

Take a shot at bringing bowhunting classes to your chapter to engage new audiences. Any League member who is a state hunter education instructor, certified archery instructor, or avid archer/bowhunter who is willing to share his or her outdoor experiences can become a trained bowhunting instructor.
