Kentucky students bag big game.
Nine students (six boys and three girls) took part in the October 7-10, 2004, hunt on the 3,000-acre Pape Farm located in Hancock and Breckinridge Counties. To he selected for this free hunt, the students had to compete in the NASP tournament in 2003 or 2004, complete the Hunter Education Certification, hold a valid hunting license and deer tag, and, most importantly, have never killed a deer with a bow.
The hunt was especially memorable for three young archers. Morgan Floyd, 13, killed her first turkey with a bow. Quentin Young, 15, and Taylor Cundiff, 10, both killed their first deer with bows. MI three youngsters were using Muzzy broadheads and all three made very good shots on their animals.
Muzzy Pro Staffers Charles Blankenship, Al Millin, and Jennie Richardson helped the students on the hunt.
"Muzzy really believes in this program and has helped contribute to its widespread success," said Richardson, who is also Educational Administrator and Archery Coordinator for the Kentucky Department of Fisheries and Wildlife Research.
NASP, which began in Kentucky in 2002, is designed to partner with a state's Department of Education and its Fish and Wildlife Agency to offer an Olympic-style target archery program to physical education students from grades 412. The program is now up and running in 21 states.
