Whitetail Archery Academy 2021
In partnership with WHITETAILS UNLIMITED
Take an opportunity to spend 2 days, 1 night at Gardner Camp preparing for the bowhunting season. We will provide youth with hands-on, interactive shooting and field experience to ready themselves for bow season. Experienced instructors will take time teaching bowhunting field techniques – shot placement, blood trailing, game retrieval, tree stand safety, trail camera tactics, deer management, and more. Mixed in we will feature friendly competitions, plenty of time to interact with other campers with similar interests, and traditional camp activities.
  • SENIOR CAMPERS COMPETE FOR GARDNER CAMP HUNT - Based on the results of our 3-D tournament, senior campers are chosen to return to Gardner Camp for a 2-Day Bow Hunt during the 2021 hunting season.
  • 3-D ARCHERY RANGE- The camp will utilize our 10-target 3-D archery trail winding through the woods. Varying animals from turkey, boar, raccoon, skunk, deer, alligator, and carp are strategically placed with challenging shots at each target. Ten, twenty, and thirty-yard markers are placed at each station. Shooting stations may be on the ground, in a stand, uphill, downhill, near water, and at varying angles to the target to develop shooters into skilled hunters in any situation.
  • AWARDS CEREMONY We will be hosting parents and campers for lunch on Sunday at noon. Awards will be handed out at that time.
  • WATER SHOOT, BONFIRE, STAR GAZING - After-hour activities to keep the camp festivities rolling throughout the evening and night.
