Long time Alaskan, Forrest Bolles recently moved to Yankton, South Dakota by way of Kansas to take over the position of NEYAC community coach.
“I am first and foremost a bowhunter; I have hunted and harvested a multitude of big game in Alaska. I landed in Kansas where I attempted to cross a few things off my bucket list, mainly White tail deer, Turkey, bass, and crappie. I hope to cross a few more off here in SD, mule deer, antelope, pheasant, etc. All things not found in my home state.”
Over the past 20 years Forrest has been active in local archery clubs in Fairbanks, AK and Lawrence, KS. With transitioning to Yankton and working at the NFAA Easton Yankton Archery Center, Forrest will continue working with the archery community as well as participate in local league shoots. 3D archery has become a passion for Forrest with numerous entries into Redding and the NFAA marked 3D nationals competitions.
“I have a passion for helping young people, and anyone new to the sport. I find joy in teaching people the skills necessary to propel an arrow down range. I am excited to meet various members of the community at the nicest archery facility in the world.” – Forrest Bolles
