Deer Creek Archers have worked hard over the years to share a love of traditional archery with thousands of people. For 30 years now on the second weekend of June, archers gather at the Cloverdale Conservation Club near Cloverdale, Indiana to enjoy the comradery with old friends and to make new ones. Lots of enjoyment has been shared amongst vendors and archers roaming the 3D ranges there. Countless memories and friendships for a lifetime have been made.
Traditional archery is a passion of Deer Creek Archers Club. Having spent the past 30 years holding the Traditional Nationals shoot they still enjoy it all and want to continue for years to come. Archers enjoyed great vendors, a trade blanket each evening, shooting aerial targets, a shootdown on Saturday night, a coon shoot Friday night, a women’s time of shooting together Saturday morning, and much more.
Traditional archery offers a special camaraderie whether shooting for fun or for sport. Relaxing and invigorating at the same time, traditional archery is a sport for kings to paupers as much today as it was thousands of years ago. Archery brings people together on many levels which makes it a perfect family sport also.
To celebrate their 30-year anniversary Deer Creek Archers invited Monty Browning as the guest speaker this year. Monty shared archery and hunting adventures with a large crowd of eager listeners. He and his wife Annie spent time sharing stories with young and old alike about their alligator, zebra, and water buffalo also.
