Our aims and objectives are to promote the status of bowhunting to a high level of acceptance and recognition in Australia and around the world. We educate members to attain and uphold the highest standard of hunter ethics and the published rules of fair chase. Whilst promoting Bowhunter Education and responsible hunting ethics at all times.
The Australian Bowhunters Association has been helping hunters and field archers for nearing 4 decades, as an Australian sporting association we are self funded, have a full glossy magazine that its members get sent every 2 months which is also available in your local newsagent for non-members.
Field Archery Australia looks after the field shooters of the association, which in a lot of cases are the same as those involved in the bowhunting aspect of the sport. Field Archery Australia has a National Event each year for those field archers to see how they measure up in accuracy with their peers around the world.
