To educate a man in mind and not in morals is to educate a menace to society. -Theodore Roosevelt

Boone and Crockett Archery Mobile



The Boone and Crockett Club’s Conservation Education Program has created a first of its kind hands-on, archery, hunter ethics and conservation education module in collaboration with the National Archery in the Schools Program (NASP). The BCAM contains an entire NASP approved archery setup, capable of hosting archers of all ages and abilities. NASP approved curriculum is delivered to middle and high school aged youth during school hours, primarily while in physical education classes and also at outdoor expos and hunter education events.

The B&C Conservation Education Program exists on the Club’s Theodore Roosevelt Memorial Ranch (TRMR) in rural north-central Montana. Here, the Rasmuson Wildlife Conservation Center (RWCC) hosts over 2,000 individuals per year, most of which revolves around getting youth into the outdoors and interested in shooting sports during the summer months. The Club has now teamed up with several leading wildlife conservation organizations to take their education program on the road to the students in remote, rural area communities of Montana year-round.

While NASP has been implemented in thousands of schools across the country, most are located in urban areas where funds, students and storage space are all readily available. In rural areas however, many school districts may not have the funding to invest into archery equipment that will only be used a few times throughout the year. Moreover, if these smaller schools are to make this investment they may lack the proper storage space to keep their valuable equipment safe and secure when not in use. Therein lies the reasoning for the “Archery-Mobile” similar to the “Bookmobile” many of us have experienced during our early days of primary education, except instead of checking out books we get to shoot arrows!

The benefits of the BCAM:

  • Engage young people in the outdoors, outdoor skills and shooting sports.
  • Investment in a safe, consistent, constant, steadily growing program nationally.
  • A direct influence on over 1,000 individuals a year in up to 20+ schools.
  • Puts modern, interesting, affordable and durable equipment in the hands of future archery enthusiasts.
  • Advertising space on the rolling billboard and first ever of it’s kind, “Archery-Mobile”
  • Promote a very healthy gateway activity for youth, as many archers become hunters and anglers thus supporting wildlife conservation across the country.
  • Know that the support you give this program will be returned ten-fold in future PR excise funds.

Through your support the Boone and Crockett Club can offer this opportunity to schools at no-charge. A scholarship account has been set up to offset any undue financial burden that schools would otherwise have to pay. The Boone and Crockett Club supplies a vehicle suitable to tow the trailer, trained staff and local cooperation with schools, teachers and administrators. Additional funds will be used to cover travel costs and additional upkeep and maintenance on equipment in future years.

How this works for schools:

  • B&C staff reaches out to schools belonging to the Golden Triangle Curriculum Cooperative. (50+ schools across north-central MT)
  • B&C staff coordinates with individual school administrators and teachers to schedule and plan in-school visits for the archery-mobile to arrive and deliver curriculum
  • B&C staff sets up, take down and implement all indoors target shooting activities during school hours
  • B&C staff obtains the proper NASP certification for archery instruction, maintain possession of and monitor condition for all archery equipment in the BCAM trailer

How this works for donors/sponsors:

  • Local archery shops, chapters of wildlife conservation organizations and shooting sports groups have an opportunity to support this extremely worthwhile endeavor
  • Space is provided on the BCAM trailer for contributing groups to have a decal of their choosing highlighted as a donor/sponsor
  • Increased engagement of the younger generation in shooting sports will directly benefit local sporting goods stores as well as potential membership in the wildlife conservation organization membership community and in turn, wildlife conservation as a whole

Future Developments:

  • The Boone and Crockett Club will hold NASP certification trainings (8 hour BAI and 24 hour BAIT) at their TRM Ranch and Rasmuson Wildlife Conservation Center for all interested teachers and individuals
  • If the demand exists and individuals are in compliance with all NASP certifications the Club will consider loaning of the BCAM trailer and supplies to other groups (i.e. 4H shooting groups, Youth NASP tournaments, etc.)
