In partnership with WHITETAILS UNLIMITED, we hosted twenty-two youth (ages 12-17) for a two-day, overnight Whitetail Archery Academy at Gardner Camp. These boys and girls participated in hands-on, interactive shooting and field experience to ready them for bow season. Experienced instructors taught bowhunting field techniques – shot placement, blood trailing, game retrieval, tree stand safety, trail camera tactics, deer management, and more. There was also plenty of time for friendly competitions and interaction between campers. It’s always great preparing these youngsters to have successful hunts this Fall/Winter. Congratulations to Tanner Mueller, Sean Zanger, and Toby Sapp for winning the 3D Archery Competition! These campers will be returning to Gardner Camp this season for bow hunts.
