If you’re like us and seeing all of the new bowhunting gear being released makes you feel like a kid on Christmas morning — then you’re in luck. The world’s largest bowhunting show is set to open its doors tomorrow morning at the Indiana Convention Center in downtown Indianapolis. For three days, more than 9,000 attendees and 600 exhibitors will converge at the convention to reveal, discuss, sell and enjoy all things archery. And since the trade show is limited to people working in the archery industry, the Deer & Deer Hunting team will be there to give you an exclusive look into the Archery Trade Association Show, bringing you the most exciting highlights of what’s new in the bowhunting world.

D&DH staffers will prowl the floor of the ATA Show to discover the best new bowhunting gear, reporting back to you every day of the show. Thursday’s report will highlight new bows, Friday will be new crossbows, Saturday is new arrows, bolts and broadheads, and Sunday’s recap will feature new treestands, hunting clothing, game cameras and more. And throughout the show, the staff will have special reports on the latest archery and hunting gear for female hunters.

Plus, the Deer & Deer Hunting editors will have daily video reports on all of the hottest new gear, with expert insight from the product manufacturers, as well as hands-on experience trying out the gear and shooting the bows and crossbows right at the show. By the time that the doors close on ATA 2018, D&DH will present the 2018 Gear Awards for the coolest new bowhunting gear. 

Follow along for all of the exciting highlights every day of the world’s largest bowhunting show here on, and on our Facebook, YouTube, Twitter, Instagram and Pinterest pages. Stay tuned!
