Archery is one of the fastest growing field sports in the country. Thanks to developments in equipment, it is easier than ever to become a proficient archer. The physical part of archery is the form and developing a routine. But the most important part is the discipline and the mental aspect of this sport. It's not the biggest and strongest person who is a successful archer. It's someone whose strength lies in his or her focus and discipline. It is a sport of consistency. Host Marianne Eaton joins Ron Pelkey of Pelkey's Archery in St. Albans for an archery lesson, and then visits the Chittenden County Fish and Game Club in Jonesville for a 3-D archery tournament benefiting the Hunt of a Lifetime program. The program brings hunting and fishing experiences to children with life-threatening illnesses.
