Hunter's Friend LLC was established in 1999 in Kentucky, USA and quickly grew into one of America's largest stand-alone Archery Pro-shops. They have served bowhunters and archery enthusiasts in every state, and in most countries around the world.
Hunter's Friend Europe Oy was established in 2010 and is a company based in bow-hunting-crazy Finland. The owners of HFE, together, have over 35 years experience in the bow business and lifetimes of experience hunting in the forests of Europe and North America. We were specially chosen by Hunter's Friend USA to bring the Hunter's Friend concept to Europe and to service the specific needs of its European bowhunting customers. Hunter's Friend Europe, Oy (HFE) is now an authorized franchise of Hunter's Friend LLC.
The concept is simple. Archery consumers shouldn't have to choose between getting good service and getting a fair price. Nor should Europeans have to go all the way across the ocean just to get a better deal. Archery consumers have traditionally had two choices: pay big money to buy from a local pro-shop where you can get technical service, or try to save money buying from a discount mail order store which leaves you "on your own" regarding setup and tuning. It's our belief that bowhunters and archery enthusiasts shouldn't have to choose one or the other. You should be able to get good technical service and a fair price. That is our goal.
So we've worked hard to bridge the gap between the local and mail-order concepts. We don't sell bows like most internet and mail-order archery suppliers. Less than 5% of the bows we sell via our web pages are "bare bows". The other 95% are "Ready-to-Hunt" bows which we first setup and service in our pro-shop. And thanks to our custom setup and measurement methodology, we've largely dispelled the myth that you have to physically walk-in to a store to ensure your archery equipment is fitted and setup properly. Hunter's Friend USA has outfitted thousands of bowhunters in Europe via the Ready-to-Hunt program from America, and now Hunter's Friend Europe is ready to do it even better from inside the EU. We'd love a chance to prove to you that now that we are in Europe, we can do an even better job by providing accessible customer service along with our top quality products and reasonable prices.
Today, we are already one of the busiest archery pro-shops in all of Europe and we're proud to be the trusted partner of Hunter's Friend USA. So over the past year, our pro-shop has become a busy place.
While we never dreamed our pro-shop could be so successful, we are sincerely thankful to all of the bowhunters who have taken a chance on Hunter's Friend - and for the many loyal and repeat customers who buy their new compound bows from Hunter's Friend in America and in Europe.
Our website is only in a few languages at this moment. We are working hard to add more language possibilities to our web site. Please hang in there.
