Hitting his mark

Chris Hanks readily admits he took a gamble last June when he opened Full Draw Archery, the first full-service archery shop of its kind in Anderson County history.

“Was it a gamble? Sure it was,” Hanks said. “My wife Melissa tells me that all the time.”

It’s a gamble that apparently has paid off.

Standing amid a shop stuffed with over 100 compound bows, crossbows and everything required to hunt with either, Hanks said although he’s been in business only a year, he’s already planning to expand significantly.
