May Archery Classic Set for Kentucky

posted on April 22, 2014

We bowhunters are up for any kind of event that helps us to get out and shoot, hone our skills and have some fun. If you live in or near Kentucky, consider taking part in the 19th Annual Tim Farmer Archery Classic, May 17-18, at the Kentucky Department of Fish and Wildlife Resources (KDFW) headquarters in Frankfort. National Archery in the Schools Program archers and their families are encouraged to participate, with cash and prizes awarded in 19 men’s, women’s and youth categories.

Sponsored by the Christian Archers of Kentucky in Nicholasville, the event was started by Tim Farmer, host of the KFWR’s “Kentucky Afield” television show, who will be onsite. Participants will take aim at 30 3-D animal targets at varying distances, providing great target practice for bowhunters.

“The event helps archers learn to judge distance and rewards proper arrow placement with high scores,” Farmer explains.

Targets may be shot on a single day or over both days of the event. Registration is from 8 a.m.–1 p.m. each day at KDFW’s Salato Center off U.S. 60, two miles west of Frankfort. The cost is $15; kids up to age 10 shoot for free. For information, contact Todd Pauley at 859-223-7570 or [email protected]

The 19th Annual Tim Farmer Archery Classic is one of many similar events taking place around the country this spring and summer. Check with your state game agency to learn about shooting sports and hunter training events in your area.
