Mount Made in the USA
Family Owned and Operated
Made to Hunt
Our goal is to introduce more archers to the vast benefits of shooting a red dot on a bow.
In the late 80s and early 90s, it became popular to hunt with a red dot on your bow. Problems arose because the sight systems were fixed, meaning, there was no adjustability for yardage. You would sight in your bow for 20 or 25 yards and gap shoot for anything closer or further. Through the years, a few companies have tried to do what we have done and make an adjustable mount for red dot archery but never succeeded. Our friends and family have shot red dot sights on bows for years and we wanted a solution to the issue of yardage adjustment. So, Co-Owner of ARD Tim Zelenka took it into his own hands to get a system made.
In 2019, Tim met with Jeff Kunkle, the owner of Dynamic Machine in Zeeland Michigan, to start the process of designing and building a simple, functional, and durable adjustable mount for red dot archery. Many prototypes later, we have the ARD V4 mount. This adjustable mount is available in our Elite Package and Rail Package systems.

The “idea” man, co owner, and life long bowhunter. Tim has shot with a red dot on his bow since the late 80s and had never found a good solution to make it adjustable for yardage. Not finding what he wanted, he decided to get it made himself.
Co owner and engineer. Jeff is a machine shop owner and his team at Dynamic Machine, designed and manufactured Tim's idea for the adjustable mount. Jeff’s team has crafted the mount and designed it for simplicity of use. It is made for hunters in the field and here in Michigan, USA.
