On April 14th, 2024, Grace Miller went out with her dad, whom is the Wisconsin S3DA Conservation Coordinator, Ryan Miller, and grandpa, Ron Miller, for the Wisconsin Youth Turkey Hunt on their families hunting land in Shawano County. Grace had spent time practicing with her HS Strut Cookie Cutt'r slate call to make sure she was ready to call them in. They had gone out early the day before and heard lots of gobbling, but nothing came close enough. On Sunday, they had eight different birds gobbling all around them. At around 6:30AM, they were watching two deer on a logging road that kept looking up the hill. Grace said, "A big Tom came running down and scared the deer off before walking towards us. They were strutting and drumming five feet from the blind. The Tom went to the decoys and gave us a great show while I waited for my shot. After pecking at the Jake decoys and trying to impress our hens, I took the shot at 17 yards to drop my first turkey! He weighed out at 23 pounds with an 11-inch beard and 1-inch spurs. After we got home, I called my friend, Shaileigh Otto, from Bucks and Bulls Archery, and we shared stories of our weekend hunting."

Our Mission

The mission of the Scholastic 3-D Archery (S3DA) Program is to foster, educate and guide youth in the areas of indoor target, 3D and outdoor target archery as well as safe, ethical bowhunting practices. The goal of the S3DA program is to provide archery and bowhunting opportunities for young people in after-school settings as well as with archery-affiliated clubs and businesses in the community. We provide an effective after-school archery program, focusing on Indoor 5-spot, 3D and Outdoor Target archery and the certification and tools to deliver the instruction to youth.

As a result, S3DA expects to see increased participation in 3D and target archery by youth and parent archers using compound bows and traditional archery equipment while also helping to increase participation at local, state and national archery events. In addition, S3DA expects to help provide a basic understanding and respect for our natural resources, environment and nature, with a special emphasis on the modern wildlife conservation and regulated sport hunting.
