Josh Peters

I am Josh Peters, I, along with my wife Karla own and operate J & K Family Outfitters, LLC. Which is the parent company to Backyard Archery located in the southern coalfields of West Virginia.  I cast my first arrow in the spring of 1989 and have been hooked ever since.  My passion for the woods and archery have led me to where I am today.  Now, nearly three decades later, I have had my fair share of success.  I find myself wanting to give back to a sport and a passion that has given me so much.  Being such a demanding archer and bow hunter, I have always done my own work on my equipment so I can get the hyper accuracy that I demand from it and myself.  So in 2014, we changed our personal pro shop into Backyard Archery to provide the same level of detail to local hunters.  Each year we continue to grow and we are humbled by it's success.  We never dreamed something that we do would have such an impact on people and how much those same people would have so much impact on us.  This is something we are truly grateful for.  We have our own line of bow strings as known as Sniper Custom Bow Strings that can be purchased here on this website.  Each string I personally build with equipment that I personally designed and built.  I am also a BAI certified coach for the National Archery in the Schools Program (NASP) where I coach students at our local schools from grades 4th through 12th.  I also participate with community functions where we teach archery and do trick shots to encourage kids to pick up archery.  I also write blogs about archery tuning techniques and tips along with hunting and outdoor experiences.
