Department of Fish and Wildlife
Tim Farmer Archery Classic set for May 17-18 in Frankfort
FRANKFORT, Ky. – The
19th annual Tim Farmer Archery Classic will be held May 17-18 at the
headquarters of the Kentucky Department of Fish and Wildlife Resources in
Farmer, host of the department’s popular “Kentucky Afield” television show,
will be present during some of the competition. Hiking trails around the Salato
Wildlife Education Center will be closed during this event.
The competition will include 19 classes for men, women and youth. NASP
(National Archery in the Schools Program) archers and their families are
encouraged to participate.
Registration for the weekend target archery shoot is from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m.
(Eastern time) on both days. Archers should register in the classroom building,
located on the campus of Kentucky Fish and Wildlife headquarters. The campus is
located off U.S. 60, approximately 2 miles west of Frankfort.
The cost to shoot is $15, and free for kids who are 10 years of age and under.
The top finishers in each class will receive cash or trophy prizes.
Archers in the competition will shoot at three-dimensional (3D) foam animal
targets at varying distances. Farmer said 3-D shoots are good practice for bow
hunting. “They help archers learn to judge distances and reward proper arrow
placement with high scores,” he explained.
The event is sponsored by the Christian Archers of Kentucky, an archery club
headquartered in Nicholasville. For more information, contact Todd Pauley at
