Well folks, tomorrow is Father’s Day. We hope you’ve got him the perfect gift (ehem… we’re still open…) and if not, at least some gratitude to share with the father figure in your life! If you happen to need something and you also happen to be reading this when we just flipped the neon ‘closed’ sign on… the Savannah 3D shoot is in just two weeks and we have one in Rome, GA shortly after. Whether he shoots or not, our 3D events just keep getting better and better for all skill levels. We would love to have you!
We love fathers. That being said, as hard as we know they all try… it’s still a darn hard job. Put a man in a baby backpack and tell him to braid hair, wipe toddler noses, put together plastic houses, and not break toys before kids get to play with them? It takes some practice. Statistics show that most men haven’t seen so many naked barbies nor stepped on so many legos until they become fathers. What statistics don’t cover is the amount of times they’ve got the idea to try the kiddie slide out or push remote control cars to their limits. AFV takes care of that.
Most toy assembly instructions have proved just too complicated but either way consider them already in the trash. There are a few things dads are just known for doing. We’ve seen them slurp spilled applesauce off tables, flatten kiddie pools, and choose the messiest kitchen activities. Still, we can’t complain about those dads who really try. Most of the time they turn out pretty great, and if it weren’t for our Dads, the trend shows that a whole lot of us would have no idea how to take care of God's creation.
All jokes aside, we are thankful for the strong men in our lives. Of course, we have due respect for the women too but when it comes down to it, many of us wouldn’t have ever started shooting if it weren’t for our fathers. Among the things that they do, dads have a long record of teaching us how to live and work well and we’ve been chasing that legacy from the beginning. If anything, our mission is to help people learn how to build good character whether indoors or out — and if there is one thing most fathers prove generally good at doing, it is that.
As Christ followers, we take the privilege of both being fathers and holding them accountable very seriously. Being there for our families is important because we know the impact it has had on us as young outdoorsmen and women. Getting outdoors is important, sure, but more importantly we want to push people’s lives outward — away from focusing on ourselves and instead toward showing care for other people. That is an essential quality for every good friend and family member. It’s the ultimate reason for our mission of showing kindness and being there for families. Archery growth is important but character growth is incomparably vital.
Speaking of holidays, the Saturday morning post is going to take one for now until late August or early to September. We’re making way for more weekday posts chronicling our summer ventures of fishing, shooting, and prepping for the season. Be back with more laughs soon but until then, don’t miss out on the tips and stories.
See ya in a while!

The weather isn’t the only thing that can change in a matter of minutes in Georgia — each shot is different from the last one and they just keep getting more epic!
