Ready, Aim, Fire – The Inside Joke Learn Archery Skills from Bear Archery [VIDEO]

Someone thought it would be a good idea not only to give Bobby and I sharp objects, but a method by which to launch them. That’s never good.

A few weeks back we met up with Kevin from Evansville’s own Bear Archery at the archery range inside Ryan’s Ace Hardware in Newburgh to learn the ins and outs of proper archery safety, along with proper shooting technique leading up to this weekend’s Evansville Outdoor Expo at the Old National Events Plaza on Saturday and Sunday.

While this wasn’t my first go ’round with a bow and arrow, it had been many years since I picked one up. Fortunately, Kevin was there to calm my nerves and make sure I was doing things the right way.

We also learned during our visit with Kevin that archery is gaining traction here in the Tri-State as a recreational and competitive sport. There’s even a youth archery academy for kids in the area looking to pick up a bow.

Be sure to stop by this weekend’s Evansville Outdoor Expo to see Kevin and the rest of the crew from Bear Archery, where you’ll also have the opportunity to test out a few of their bows in the shooting lane.
