FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:
Hunters Heritage Group LLC purchases High Country Archery assets
Chattanooga, TN – January 3, 2010 – Hunters Heritage Group LLC is pleased to announce the asset purchase of High Country Archery INC, Dunlap, TN. The acquisition, which took place on October 1, 2009, includes all inventory and trade names associated with High Country Archery INC. The company, Hunters Heritage Group, LLC, will continue doing business under the brand name D.B.A. High Country Archery.
Nathan Land, President of Hunters Heritage Group, LLC, has over 20 years experience in the archery industry working in marketing, product design, and customer service. Land also has previous experience as a pro shop owner and understands the importance of an excellent product being upheld by excellent service. Land notes, “You can have the best product in the world, but if you don’t have a good service team to stand behind your product, it won’t be a success. “ Since the purchase, Land along with his wife Jill, and the Hunters Heritage Group, have been preparing the business plan to propel High Country Archery’s image from the ground up.
On January 4th, 2010, a new chapter will un-fold as Hunters Heritage Group, LLC, will continue doing business under the trade name, High Country Archery. “HCA is in a better position than it has been in years,” notes Land, “We have a new group of enthusiastic professionals and a debt free company that is poised to not just survive, but thrive in these challenging economic times.” The former company, High Country Archery, INC, had been under Chapter 11 restructuring bankruptcy prior to Hunter’s Heritage Group, LLC, acquiring the assets.
During the 26 years of being in business, High Country Archery, INC, has been world re-known for designing innovative products that revolutionized the sport of archery. Some of these innovations include: the originator of the 65% let-off cam (Pro Eliminator 1983), the originator of the Hatchet Cam (1989), the first extruded aluminum riser using 7075-T6 aluminum (Ultra Extreme 1992), the first carbon riser (1996), and the originator and patent holder of the roller-guard (2002).
High Country Archery, INC, has seen a lot of accomplishments that have redefined the sport of archery. As Nathan Land, President of Hunters Heritage Group states, “The strength of the intellectual property accompanied with the well known brand as High Country Archery, is a huge asset for a new company like ours to expand upon. Ultimately, success comes down to a passionate team with solid principles, and a solid business plan. With that being said, my goal as a manufacture is to continue that legacy, by producing quality products backed by superior service. This will allow more dealers to become successful in this economy, and ultimately using the sport of archery to be a ministry for uniting friends and family.”
High Country Archery INC. Company History
High Country Archery INC was a company that specialized in manufacturing high-grade compound archery equipment for special applications in the hunting and competitive archery arena. High Country Archery was founded by Nathan’s father, Spencer Land in Orofino, ID in 1983 and quickly become one of the most accomplished and well-known archery companies.
Spencer Land redefined the archery industry by designing a compound bow that had 65% let-off, shorter brace height, and a shorter axle to axle length which equated to a bow shooting over 300 FPS. This invention of the 65% let-off became the benchmark for the high let-off and speed era, which led High Country to become one of the most recognizable brand names in hunting and competitive archery products.
In the mid ‘80s, Land formed a competitive team of archers that traveled the country and took most of the top places in IBO and later the ASA championships. Well into the mid ‘90s, notable professional shooters like, Randy Ulmer, Burley Hall, David Powers, Joey Vaughn, Randy Chappell, and Sunny Chappell took the competitive sport to a whole new level and essentially paved the way for the competitive 3D sport that archery is today.
High Country Archery, INC, had quite a few firsts in the archery competition, however it didn’t end there. In the arena of product achievements, HCA first started with the 65% let-off cam design and later added many other designs to the list including: the originator of the Hatchet Cam (1989), the first extruded aluminum riser using 7075-T6 aluminum (Ultra Extreme, 1993), the first carbon riser (Lite Speed, 1996) the first cam to have draw length adjustment without modules (XD CAM, 2000), the first cam to have Draw weight, Let-off and Draw Length adjustment on the Cam (PERFX CAM, patented 2004), and the originator as well as patent holder of the roller-guard (patented, 2002).
Hunters Heritage Group mission statement, “To have a passionate team of employees that will provide a quality product to dealers at competitive prices with the most personalized customer service. As we stand behind these claims, we will earn the continued support of the archery community.”

All this has been around and if you look on the HCA website there is exact dates going back to November on all of this happening. I am hopeful and want it to happen but it would be nice to get a response. I have even written Nathan as he is on my friend list as HCASpeedKills and have heard nothing yet. I know he's on here as you can see when he has been on.

their customer service is the reason that i didnt buy the speedforce last season and I thought it was the best shooting speed bow i had ever shot. I ended up with an Elite since every time I called them prior to my purchase they answered the phone and answered all my questions...I hope HCA figures it out because I will seriously take a look at their product again

I have had no problems getting a hold of HCA. When I call it is normally Nathan Land that answers the phone, the last call that I made was the first week of Dec of 2009. I was told that HCA is at the Trade show in Ohio, and I'm sure we will see what 2010 line up will looks like.. From what I here is that the Mace and the Speed Pro is coming out with a new face lift.

- Shelf has been opened up,
- Cutout around the rest hole was filled in,
- Riser hole holding the bottom string-stopper was redesigned to ease adjustment
- Rollerguard redesigned to prevent harnesses from jumping
- Regular rollerguard available without Stopper
- 2010 limbs redesigned to dramatically reduce cam lean
- Limb pocket tolerances have been tighted up to increase accuracy
Add the new Black/Carbon paint scheme or the Realtree/Black and it adds up to one awesome Speed Pro!

i shot hca back in the days when they were the bow company out there that was on the leading edge of things. their customer service even back then was not the best in the world. they have always made a good shooting bow if you got one that was straight. i really would love to see them get their act together and get things going again. that supreme pro they had out the last couple of years was a very very nice bow as is the iron mace and speed pro.
