“My mom was a PE teacher at the high school in town and one day brought home a Fred Bear recurve and a few arrows for me. From that day forward I started flinging arrows all over the place; not a tree in the backyard stood a chance! As I got older, archery remained a constant but I found myself spending much of my time with sports such as football and baseball. For me, hunting with my bow in particular, was a way to relax on the weekends and that held true throughout college. I attended Northwood University with plans of pursuing a sports management degree and playing football. I thought that if I could work every day in an area or industry that I naturally had fallen in love with then I wouldn’t necessarily feel like I was working. Football never worked out, but baseball did. It was being a
part of baseball that brought me back to hunting and shooting my bow. It was then my thoughts narrowed from working in sports, to working in either baseball or archery. I had the opportunity to do just that as I moved to Wisconsin and worked in summer collegiate baseball. With two seasons under my belt it was time for something else. I stayed in Wisconsin but returned to the archery world, working for a local pro shop. It was then I finally realized the size of the archery industry and the many opportunities it had to offer. I became very interested in all avenues and eventually found myself heading home to work for Bohning. I can’t tell you how excited I was to find out I was going to have the opportunity to work close to home in an industry I love.
It couldn’t have been a better fit!” - Michael Collins
