Brian Brochu

Brian began bow hunting in 1978. Due to the inability to get quality archery equipment in the area, Brian founded Brian's archery shop. The business was started in the basement of his home. Despite the tight confines, the business began to boom. In 1990, the shop had out grown the basement and a new 3000 square foot shop was built. In the years since, Brian's archery shop has become one of the largest archery pro shops in New England.

Brian's hunting career has also flourished. Brian has harvested more than 100 big game animals with a bow. This list includes whitetails, mule deer, mountain lion, elk, moose, bear, javelina, hogs, quebec labrador caribou and central barren ground caribou. Fifteen of these animals have qualified for the Pope and Young record books. Brian out did himself in 2005 harvesting a 370” 6x6 bull elk on a D-I-Y hunt in New Mexico. This Bull will rank in the top 500 ever taken with archery tackle. Brian has served as an IBEF certified instructor for the past 20 years.
