Bear Archery Continues Scholastic 3-D Archery Sponsorship

Williamsburg, KY – Bear Archery recently confirmed their long-standing support of youth archery by naming the Scholastic 3-D Archery Association as the recipient of a 2020 sponsorship. Bear Archery’s support, year in and year out, has been instrumental in S3DA’s explosive growth across the United States. Bear Archery is a leading manufacturer of premium archery equipment including compound bows, traditional bows and accessories. The company was founded on the principles and life-long passion for the outdoors of Fred Bear. He was an expert marksman, an avid outdoorsman and an inspiration for many archers with his natural shooting ability. S3DA, in conjunction with Bear Archery, hopes to continue providing a well-rounded program that Fred Bear would be proud of for years to come.

Bear Archery’s sponsorship of S3DA not only allows the promotion of fair-chase and ethical hunting but also continues to build on the foundation of partners and sponsors whose goal is to encourage conservation efforts as well as promote bowhunting. With most people having extra time on their hands due to the “stay at home” orders because of the COVID-19 pandemic, S3DA has seen a significant increase in the number of members that are participating in Spring turkey hunting. Bear Archery and S3DA are currently collaborating on an initiative that will provide one lucky student the opportunity to WIN a hunting package that includes one of the most versatile bows on the planet, the Bear Archery Cruzer G2. S3DA is collecting information on why students are interested in getting started hunting or why it would be beneficial for them to have both a target bow and a hunting bow.

“Rarely does an opportunity come along where you can benefit future generations while at the same time impact youth today – S3DA does just this and Bear is proud to be a sponsor, as it provides today’s youth with archery education, mentoring, discipline, and skills needed for college and beyond. Bear is honored to be part of this legacy,” stated Bear Archery Customer Service Manager and S3DA Board Member J.R. Neidlinger.
