Our equipment is made to put you in touch with the excitement we feel when we go into the woods, creeks, lakes or swamps for whatever is in season, even if we’re just stump shooting. If you're not a hunter these bows & other equipment still look and feel amazing at any event; SCA, Reenactments, Larping, Rendezvous or any kind of traditional archery shoot while not emptying your bank account.
”As an accomplished bower and outdoorsman I can prepare you for a full day of hunting or give you the means to just plunk arrows at stumps and other targets to simply improve your target shooting and body dynamics. I can outfit you with everything you'll need. I want to teach you how we do it. Let my wife and I teach you how we live with our bow symbiotically with nature and how we relish our time in the woods as our ancestors did.”-Joseph Frye
We attend events, Renaissance fairs & local festivities, providing archery shoots and axe throwing for patrons.
Having a party, invite us along; amaze your friends and family with your skills or give them the bug and see how they do.
We are a family business, so not only do we do the "bow thing"; We also make wild foraged salves, ointments & bug spray & medicinal teas to keep you going even after the bugs & thrones have torn you down. - Aunt Nuné's Apothecary
Coming soon in our own line of freeze dried snacks from our local farms to carry with you for those longer adventures. - Callisto's Cupboard
Kids these days don't spend nearly enough time outdoors. We all know this to be true but few of us know what to do about it. Well we want to give you a hand with that. At Bold Archery we believe it's not just our kids who need more Mother Nature quality time, but all of us.
We offer these camp classes for kids 8-15 (with a parent) and kids 16-18 (with or without a parent). We ask for a parent to join their kids, not only because we're not babysitters, but because we want a parent to Learn with their young so when your child goes home they can practice the skills they learn safely and under your watchful eye.
All our courses are offered as continuing education classes, not just for the summer. You can surely take one class and see how you like it, or just take one class because you're visiting the area, but we want to see you come back week after week to learn more and more.
Joseph helps your child learn how to safely handle camp tools and use them to create their own camps in the woods. He'll teach them what they need to carry and how to carry their gear safely with them every time they step into the wilderness. And for the kids who already have some gear but maybe missing crucial items, we provide kids with some of the gear we use ourselves to help complete they kits and keep them safe out in the woods as long as they want to be out there.
These classes can also be of great benefit to Homeschoolers, it satisfies your physical education credits and over time history lessons as well, since the history of archery is as old as the history of man kind. (Homeschoolers please contact us for discounted pricing.)
