Updated February 22, 2021:  The 2021 Bowhunters Festival is scheduled for Memorial Day weekend.

The Appling Archers are planning and preparing for the 2021 Shoot.  Registration opens March 6.  The Schedule is shown below, but it is subject to change as we plan and face the challenges of 2021.

If you would like to get involved with the Appling Archers mission, there are opportunities!  You can volunteer to help at a shoot, work a clean up day, or donate items that can be used as giveaways or prizes, for a hunting and archery type of crowd.  Please use the Contact Us on this website or look us up on Facebook ‘Appling Archers’.  The next Appling Archers meeting will be at 4:30 p.m. on March 28, 2021, at the Old Store located at 5701 White Oak Road in Appling.
