USA Archery – the governing body of U.S. Olympic teams – experienced a 77 percent membership surge the past 12 months, which is good news for the archery industry and the Archery Trade Association.

The first nationwide archery survey showed that 18.9 million Americans age 18 and older participated in archery and/or bowhunting in 2012. The Archery Trade Association (ATA) recently released the results of the new survey, which was conducted in the same way as Gallup polls. The findings about archery participation and equipment use are scientifically accurate and not estimates from other data.
