For fifty years, Phyllis and Chuck Saunders, founders of Saunders Archery Company, devoted their lives to archery. From the basement of a Chicago apartment, to a small building in Manilla, Iowa, to the present manufacturing plants in Columbus and Papillion, Nebraska, the company has been guided by their dedication to the love of archery.
The passing of Phyllis on August 25, 1986 and of C. A. Saunders on March 31, 1995 marked the end of an era for archery. From the times when Phyllis toughenized faces and dyed quivers by hand, and Chuck wound and sewed matts, Saunders Archery has been part of the extended family of archery. Saunders Archery remembers its past while embarking into its future.
