Olympic archers hunting deer with Lancaster Archery Supply featured in Petersen’s Bowhunting

Petersen’s Bowhunting features in its January/February 2016 issue an article about four elite archers bowhunting for deer together in Ohio with the Lancaster Archery Supply team.

(Check it out here.)

The hunters included Brady Ellison, Jake Kaminski and Jacob Wukie, who together represented the U.S. during the 2012 Olympics in London, where they captured the team silver medal. They were joined by Lancaster Archery Supply TechXPert Dan Schuller, who narrowly missed out on making that team.


All four Olympic recurve archers are in the running to represent the U.S. at the 2016 Olympic Games in Brazil.

Written by Jon Silks, the article chronicles a week of hunting by these men in 2014 at Lancaster Archery Supply’s Wild Ohio Whitetails farm, while also giving individual profiles of each archer.

It includes commentary from LAS president Rob Kaufhold, who brought the athletes together to enjoy two passions they all share – archery and hunting deer.

The magazine is available on newsstands now.

The initiative combines three things McKenna, a junior at Lampeter-Strasburg High School in Lancaster County, Pa., is passionate about – archery, fashion and graphic design.

Her entrepreneurial endeavor caught the eyes of editors at her local newspaper – LNP – which ran a feature that you can read here.
