About Arizona Archery Enterprises

In 1971, Tom and Millie Fisher, along with Charlie and Liz Sandlin, bought Plastifletch from Max Hamilton and his wife, Jewel. Plastifletch vane technology and manufacturing evolved as time went on. Back in 1948, Max cut the first vanes with scissors and templates, then progressed to a cellulose-extruded material and a punch press.

AAE started injection molding vanes in 1974 due to a lack of quality extrusion equipment while at the same time introducing the Plastinock. Since then, AAE has led the industry in the manufacturing of nocks and vanes and continues to be the largest manufacturer of vanes and nocks in the world. AAE relocated to our current location in Prescott Valley, Arizona in 1977.

At the turn of the century, Tom and Millie elected to retire and sell the company to their two sons, T.J. and Dan Fisher, as they were both instrumental in AAE’s past accomplishments and growth. In 2006, AAE took the opportunity to purchase Cavalier Equipment from Dick and Diane Tone, which added a blooming line of quality products to AAE’s growing brand. 2013 brought more change as Dan Fisher retired from AAE to pursue other interests outside of the family business. The past decade has seen Nick Fisher, who was raised and trained in the family business, become GM. With the evolving, strong support team, Nick expects the 50-year legacy of the Fisher Family and Arizona Archery Enterprises to continue its success for decades to come.

Today, AAE continues to be the world’s largest manufacturer of nocks and vanes. Whether it is one of our own designs or custom-designed arrow components for one of our archery partners, you can be assured that quality is the most important aspect of the product.

Prescott Adds Junior Ranger Program

The City of Prescott Recreation Services Park Rangers have created a free Junior Ranger program to promote the Appreciate AZ Leave No Trace Principles, while also teaching the ecology, culture, history, and outdoor recreational opportunities of the Prescott area.

City of Prescott logo

“Our goal is to create future stewards of our open spaces,” said Sean Underhill, a Ranger for Prescott Recreation Services. “The target age range for this program is 6-12, but all ages are welcome to participate and become stewards of our parks and open spaces. Adding on to our free Nature Niños program, the Junior Ranger program integrates new topics and leadership opportunities for local and visiting youth.”

The Appreciate AZ Leave No Trace Principles are to plan ahead and prepare, stick to the trails, respect wildlife, share the outdoors, trash your trash, leave what you find, and be careful with fire. These principles are integrated throughout the Junior Ranger program.
This program consists of a free downloadable guidebook that maps out all of Prescott’s historic sites and outdoor recreational spaces, while teaching participants proper outdoor ethics. It will also be available in print at select locations. Within the Guidebook is a special Passport to Prescott’s museums and local attractions. Those who visit at least 7 passport sites and take the Appreciate AZ Leave No Trace pledge will earn a Prescott Junior Ranger badge.

While supplies last, printed copies of the guidebook and badges will be available to those who sign up for the Prescott Library’s Youth Services Summer Reading Program, at our Recreation Services department, and at the Chamber of Commerce Visitor Center.
They are seeking sponsors to help grow and sustain this program into the future. Visit the Prescott Junior Ranger/ Nature Niños site online to donate or download your free copy of the Junior Ranger Guidebook. Questions or suggestions can be sent to the City of Prescott Park Rangers at [email protected].
