Team Frady'sArchery Adventures had a simple beginning. Jim and I wanted to bring people to the outdoors through shooting sports and hunting. We established Team Frady Outdoor Adventures in 1993. Our Mission statement was simple, bring more women and children to the sport of archery, bow hunting and shooting sports. It was amazing to us how our daughters generation was not involved in the outdoors at all. They were to busy working with anything and everything that had to do with pushing a button either on a video game, computer or a cell phone. We knew that somehow we could change this thinking even if it was on a small scale.
Jim and I became certified North Carolina Hunter Education Instructors and N.A.A Level 1 Archery Instructors to give us the tools we needed to teach others. Through the years we have taught thousands in our archery and hunting outdoor classroom programs. We have taught summer camps, 4-H club, Boy Scouts of America, Becoming an Outdoors Woman programs, Women in the Outdoors through the NWTF, plus in store promotions for Bass Pro Shop, Cabelas, and Field and Stream stores.
When Jim and I met he introduced me to archery. I was hooked! The only problem was that I could not judge yardage and we knew this would be a huge problem bow hunting. Jim decided we would shoot the local 3-D archery tournaments so I could learn. Here in the mountains of Western North Carolina there is no flat ground and he knew this would help me learn to shoot from a tree stand or from the ground in any situation. It was a great idea. The first tournament we went to was a winter chiller. It was held in January, there was 12 inches of snow on the ground, a balmy 17 degrees with a stiff north wind. The 25 target 3-D course was set straight up one side of a mountain and straight down the other. I lost 7 arrows on the course and loved every minute. To my amazement I won my class that day! When we arrived back at the truck 4 hours later, Jim shot me a smile and said "So what do you think of 3-D tournaments" my reply "When is the next one"!
From there we have shot local, state and National Tournament Trails.

We decided to stop competing in 2001 after the last shoot of the year. We had been on the road 42 weekends shooting tournaments. We had a daughter entering the 8th grade and knew she would need us closer to home during her time in middle, High School and even collage. We decided that we would concentrate on our archery programs and give up the tournament trail.....for a while. We felt that our decision was the right one. Did we miss competing, of course, but bringing others to our sport so it will be here for the next generation is very important. We have picked up our bows and headed back to the tournament trail in 2018.
Our hunts have been as successful as were our programs. We had the please to hunt all over the United States but Canada as well. Hard work and persistence pays off. Never stop following your dreams! Here are some photos of our Canadian hunt and some of our other adventures. Enjoy!
