New Archery Park Now Open In Alabama

48

Archery’s popularity has swept the nation, encouraging shooters of all ages to pick up a bow, knock some arrows, and aim for the bullseye. In no state is it more clear that archery is growing in popularity than in Alabama, which recently opened its ninth archery park.

The Archery Trade Association (ATA), Alabama’s Department of Conservation and Natural Resources, and other partners built the park, and will work to build archery programs around the new facility.

“If it weren’t for ATA and other organizations that encourage people to hunt, shoot archery and buy hunting licenses, these resources wouldn’t be available,” said Jimmy Primos, COO of Primos Game Calls and an ATA board member, who attended the archery park’s opening ceremony.
