No longer do Rim Country hunters have to truck all the way down to the Valley for bow and arrow supplies after Jeremy and Kristy Ulmer opened Chasin A Dream Outfitters Archery Pro Shop Wednesday.

Everything from targets to hunting bags are available at the store, located at 612 S. Beeline Highway, including 24 yards of indoor shooting lanes to test out all your new or old bow hunting equipment.

Jeremy explained that since Payson sits in the hub of prime hunting grounds, it was natural to open a supply shop, especially since he has an extensive background in hunting nearly everything.

Jeremy even holds the record for the No. 2 non-typical Coues Deer, with the Pope and Young Club and his cousin, Randy Ulmer, is an inductee of the National Bow Hunters Hall of Fame.

For the past several years, Jeremy has operated a successful guide service.

As clients continually asked for supplies and repairs, Jeremy knew a shop was needed in Rim Country.

While the store primarily sells bow-hunting equipment, other hunting supplies are available, minus guns or ammunition.

Products include Hoyt and Mathews bows, Beman arrows, Badlands, Eberlestock and Blacks Creek backpacks, Buck Wear and King’s camouflage, animal calls, targets, accessories and children’s and women’s bows. Jeremy also offers bow repair.

The Ulmers plan to start weekly bow leagues, similar to bowling leagues, at their indoor lanes.

On May 8, Randy will sign autographs at the archery shop’s grand opening.

Jeremy Ulmer fixes a bow at his new archery shop Wednesday. Ulmer has been an avid hunter for years and can fix just about any bow ailment. His store carries several brands of men’s, women’s and children’s bows, including Hoyt and Mathews.

The shop is celebrating its grand opening the rest of the weekend from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., May 8 and 9. Door prizes will be offered along with a raffle for a children’s bow package.

When the Roundup visited the archery shop on Wednesday, the Ulmers said after only being open for a few hours, six people had already come in looking for products.

“When we were getting ready to open, we would even have people knock on the door at night,” the Ulmers said. “People are excited.”

One customer told Jeremy he had been waiting and waiting for the shop to open.

“There is a really big community of bow hunters up here,” he said. “I think the shop will do great.”

For more information, call (928) 468-6181. Definitive hours for the shop have not been set.
