I’m 23 years old. I’m an avid bow hunter and competitive shooter. I’ve been shooting a bow sense I was 8. I started out in 4H archery and then moved to target archery, both indoor and outdoor. Then I decided I wanted to try bow hunting and when I turned 15 I harvest my first archery buck and biggest to date. From there I was hooked and sense then I haven’t picked up a rifle. All the hunting I do is 90% solo and I hike into wilderness areas. That said I need reliable and dependable equipment. I’ve shot other string material before but none of them compare to Bloodline fiber. In my opinion this material is the toughest and most durable out there. I know I can count on them and that’s why I only shoot bloodline.
Zak Adams started bow hunting at the age of 27 and started competing in target archery at 39. Since that time he competes in as many tournaments, locally and nationally, as possible. In March of 2020, Zak made the switch to Bloodline and has not looked back. He builds strings for bowhunters and target Archers in northern Colorado.
I am an avid whitetail bowhunter, primarily in Texas and Oklahoma, however I have been venturing into Western big game hunting and dabble with turkey hunting. I grew up hunting and fishing in Mississippi since the age of about 7, but I also hunted Pennsylvania in my early adult life.
My most significant achievement in hunting has been joy and happiness that has manifest through the countless hours I’ve spent in the outdoors - alone and with family and friends.
I fell in love with bowhunting over 25 years ago. Although I’ve built my own arrows Easton XX75 in the early years, I decided to take by bowhunting to new heights a few years ago. I started by taking a bow technician course and developing my home shop. Building and tuning my own bows (and a few friends’), building custom arrows, and shooting target/3D archery have significantly contributed to my becoming a much better bowhunter. There’s no surprise that Bloodline has become my string material of choice.
2012 started shooting archery for therapy after being injured in Afghanistan in 2010. Introduced to the sport at an adaptive sports camp, where I got on the wrong bus and found myself at Archery. After falling over on my first shot the coach said I needed to shoot from my wheelchair. I started shooting from a wheelchair, and after 3 years I was able to move to standing with a stool in the men’s open compound division.
