Hunting is a passion for many people in New Philadelphia, Ohio; Hartville, Ohio; and beyond, and over 1.1 million hunters look forward to the start of archery season. Before opening day of September 30th, 2017, they buy their licenses, update their hunting gear, set up or prepare their blind spots, and many from Youngstown, Ohio, to Green, Ohio, take the day off work. It’s very serious business! Many like the sport and skill involved in it, but Ohio and Pennsylvania view it as a means of managing the deer population, while optimizing recreational opportunities and attempting to prevent interference with landowners and motorists. Ohio ranks fifth nationally in resident hunters and experiences over $853 million in economic impact through the sale of equipment, fuel, food, and lodging, leading to about 182,000 deer being bagged each season. These statistics include archery and gun season, and Kames Sports knows that equipment is the key to success, whether it’s the need for traditional bows, compound bows, and crossbows, or archery accessories, like targets, broadhead arrows, or gloves. Regardless if someone needs to upgrade their supplies for target archery or bow hunting, they can visit this local sporting goods store to peruse their extensive inventory of top name brands in hunting — including Bear, Killer Instinct, NAP, Bowtech, Muzzy, and Easton.
