The Arrow Shop first opened for business in 1968 in the home of Fred and Patsy Pocock. They continued to operate the business in several locations in Bartlesville offering wonderful service and a variety of archery products for everyone from the novice to the most experienced archer. After 44 years of serving the Bartlesville community, on July 2, 2012, Fred and Patsy sold the shop to Miles and Kelli Blair. The business recently relocated to Dewey, OK and now includes an indoor shooting range.
Miles’ dad purchased Miles’ first bow from Mr. Pocock when miles was about 13 years old. Miles started hunting not long after that and even though his dad was not a hunter, he made sure Miles had strong hunting mentors who taught him to hunt. Miles is a world, national, and state champion archer with several years of competition and hunting under his belt. He is a Vegas World Champion, a two-time NFAA Indoor National Champion and was inducted into the Oklahoma State Archery Association Hall of Fame in 2011. He likes to work with those wanting to excel at a higher level.
While Kelli grew up in rural area and was part of a hunting and outdoors loving family, she didn’t begin to participate in archery until she married Miles. She shot for fun and competitively and didn’t go on her first hunting trip until 2012 when she and Miles went to Africa for their 30th wedding anniversary. Kelli also has competed locally and nationally and has recently begun hunting. She also primarily works with beginners and intermediate archers of all ages.
Randy Henton, staff member, has over 20 years of experience teaching National Archery in the Schools programs in local schools and competes nationally, regionally, and locally and hunts with both compound and traditional bows.
Miles, Kelli, and Randy are all USA Archery Level 2 Certified Instructors. We are excited to continue the legacy and look forward to serving the needs of Dewey and the surrounding communities.
Our Mission is to promote the sport of archery by targeting and serving the needs of others.
