“Archery is the skill of using a bow to propel arrows. It can be used in hunting but is also a competitive sport and recreational activity. Nearly everyone — regardless of age, size, or physical ability — can succeed at archery,” said Samuel Stewart, MDC Conservation Educator, and course instructor.

Participants will learn about archery hunting in Missouri and practice on 3D targets. All equipment will be provided, but you may bring your own bow and arrows. Please wear close-toed shoes and dress for the weather. This program is designed for participants ages 12 and older.
