Tom Nelson's 2016 North Dakota buck.


The American Archer is proudly presented by Conquest Scents and has been airing on Outdoor Channel since 1997. Host Tom Nelson brings dramatic bow hunting excitement as well as archery education to each episode. Although most of Tom's hunts are done in different parts of the United States, some episode segments are shot in Tom's backyard or at his hunting cabin in northern Michigan and others take him as far away as New Zealand and South Africa. As much as he loves to hunt, Tom can't round up every second of content by himself: he has a stable of friends, colleagues, and partners who help gather footage and hunting trophies in order to bring thrilling archery action to both loyal viewers and new ones.
