Greetings Fellow Archers! Wow! What an incredible way for us to celebrate our 75th Anniversary!

This July 30 through August 9 will be the highlight of Everything NFAA and Everything Field Archery in Yankton, SD. If you haven’t made plans to attend, please do so now. This will be an incredible gathering of Field Archers from all over the World.
Yankton, SD- Tate Morgan and Sam Wolthuis shot their finals arrows at 50 yards to determine the winner of the 2014 3 Star Car Shoot Off. Wolthuis of Mountain Grove, Missouri came out ahead as he hit the center yellow of the target. Wolthuis took home a check for $10,000 for his win. 142 people, in skill levels ranging from Cub to Senior Professionals, qualified for the 2014 3 Star Car Shoot Off. The 142 qualifiers showed substantial growth from the 103 in 2013.
Usually when the NFAA hits a mile marker like this I stop and reminisce about where I was when I started archery in relationship to where I am now. Like most of you I got involved in archery through hunting and thanks to my brother-in-law and my wife’s Christmas present, I was introduced to hunting with a bow. Little did I know it would start me on a road that has lasted more than 35 years and something that my family still enjoys today. In fact, we are starting our 3rd generation of archers and hunters with my son’s daughter.

With more than 2,000 archers from 50 countries this was a record-shattering Vegas turnout. With surgical precision, Mike Schloesser (NED) became the first European shooter ever to take the $25,000 Vegas first place purse in a three way shoot-off against fellow Easton X27 shooters Rob Morgan and Sebastian Peineau (FRA). Schloesser, the current world outdoor champion, shot three perfect 10’s to clinch the Vegas title in the pressure-packed shoot-down finals.
As we head into the final leg of the 2014 3 Star Tour, only two archers remain clean and in pursuit of the $1,000,000 prize. Two perfect 600 rounds at the First Dakota Classic stand between archers Kris Schaff and Scott Starnes and $1,000,000. Schaff recently won the NFAA Indoor Nationals in an 8 person shoot off that included Starnes. Even though the $1,000,000 has yet to be claimed, Yankton's state-of-the-art indoor facility will make this year's race tighter than ever.
Tony Harbaugh is a straight shooter.
No, really. His arrow hits dead center just about every time.
Harbaugh, 59, of Jerome, ID took top honors in the 2014 Las Vegas Shoot’s Freestyle Unlimited Senior Championship Feb. 7-9. He finished with a total of 898 out of 900. The second-place winner finished with 897. This was Harbaugh’s second Vegas victory in his senior pro career. He also won in 2012. He took third in 2011 and second in 2013.
