Are these items really in stock?
Our online inventory stock quantities are NOT real time.
We use an automated inventory update system that updates our "stock available" numbers once each hour. Since we also accept phone orders 24/7/365, it is possible that you may place an order online for an item that our website will show as available when it really isn't. It doesn't happen all that often, but it can. It is frustrating for all of us, but it is a fact of Internet life.
We promise, that we will attempt to contact you if that happens on any of your orders. We will attempt phone calls and/or emails depending on what contact information you have supplied us. If we can not get through to you, we will proceed as we believe you would want us to. This is a perfect example of why it's so important for us to have current contact information for anyone placing an order.
One thing is for sure, we want you happy! We'll do whatever we can to make your online buying as pleasant and as worry-free as we can.

In 1985, 3Rivers Archery began in a back bedroom, expanded to the garage, then moved to the basement level of a retail complex, with no heat! From there, 3Rivers grew into a 1,400 sq. ft. retail store in downtown Fort Wayne. A few years later, due to tremendous growth in the industry, we relocated a 10,000 sq. ft. warehouse. Conveniently located just off Hwy 69, and only 15 miles south of Interstate 80/90, it truly is easy to access. Tucked away in the Northeast corner of Indiana, it is ideally located between the states the largest concentration of hunters, Wisconsin, Michigan, Illinois, Ohio, and Pennsylvania.
In 1999, Dale and Sandie Karch purchased the business from founder Steve Ferree. Sandie and Dale Karch are a motivated Christian couple from Wisconsin and were no strangers to traditional archery.Having owned and operated Wisconsin's largest traditional archery shop, DMJ Archery, the move to the world's largest was a natural progression.
Having done business with 3Rivers Archery for several years as a dealer, they knew about the great team already in place. So instead of moving the company to Wisconsin, they moved their family to Indiana.
