    Default USA Wake UP ArcheryTV can work

    Check out the Archerytv over seas. We could have this here. Sponsors surely would support it.

    Notice both girls are shooting Mathews Apexs.

    Very cool archery to watch.

    Cool venue.


    There's just something about a pony tail and ball cap.



    And it sure beats bowling...

    Really cool! Having attractive young ladies doesn't hurt at all either.

    Default Honestly

    Guys this could work. Not that hard to do! All these 150 hunting shows and if someone would realize it can happen if one would just make a good show of tournament archery.

    ASA or NFAA or IBO just hire a film crew and show tournament archery to the world. Most that know I shoot tournament but dont have a qlue what its all about.

    Heck if wasnt for Fred Bear videos I wouldnt be shooting archery most likely.

    Simple just doesnt make a lot of sense. We film hot dog eating contest and cant have archery.

    Default It's all economics

    I don't know what the numbers are, but I'm willing to go out on a limb and guess Hoyt and Mathews probably sell about 250 camo bows to every 1 "pretty" target bow-at least in the USA.

    There are a lot of us target archers that like to watch archery competition but we are vastly outnumbered by the guys who would rather watch over the shoulder of some camo-clad tv personality sitting in a tree over his food plot or feeder on his leased hunting spot watching for ole "Long-Tine" that he has 500 pictures of on his trail cam.

    The turn-around is happening a little every day as we become more and more like the European countries where only the rich can hunt . Every time a hunter writes a check for access (thus taking away opportunity for the less fortunate) we get a little closer to the "Joes" having nowhere to use a bow but on paper or foam.

    I doubt it will happen in my lifetime, but it sure seems to get closer every day. The sad part of it is that after 8 years of dealing with the whitetail fanatics here in Kansas I've come to enjoy target shooting way more than dealing with the "industrialized" sport hunting has become.

    So DB, I think your wish for target archery on tv is coming.

    I showed the videos to my wife last night She is getting nervous about Paris, so I thought showing her some video of other woman shooting would encourage her. It seemed to help a bit.

    What's the range, 90-100 meters? See those people sitting down UNDER the targets? Don't think I'd do that....

    Where? I see some sponsor banners and timers but noone setting under the targets. especially since the targets are mounted an a "bridge" that spans a river. I've watched many of these videos and have never seen anyone near the target while the archers are shooting.

    You're right. Now that I looked at it on a larger screen, I don't see anybody down range except the pullers.
    Is that a 122 cm target? I shoot regularly at 70 yards at a small paper plate on a bag with my 3-D rig, and I'd like to get an idea of the groups they're shooting.

    Shoot, If I can skip one off a tree and get a 10, I might be able to skip one off the water and get the scoreboard...
