"To foster and perpetuate fair chase hunting with the bow and arrow"


Hello Friends of the ABA!

We are excited to announce that our Quarterly Magazine will be going through some changes and updates this year, with the goal of bringing you applicable content, stunning visuals, and more of everything bow hunting! We ask that our members and supporters seriously consider contributing articles about hunting, bow fishing, conservation, tips of the trade, and the craftsmanship of bows, arrows and other key tools and elements of this wonderful lifestyle. Magazines will be mailed to our current members only, so be sure to check your membership status at www.akbowhunters.com and renew if needed!

Below are details about article length, subjects etc.

DEADLINE for the June/July magazine  submission is JUNE 25th 2022!

WHAT SHOULD I WRITE ABOUT?

For our June/July Issue, we are focusing on the one of the animals that Alaska is most famous for, the BEAR. Black Bear and Brown Bear stories will be prominently featured. Recent stories are preferred, but not required. Did you have an epic adventure on a bear hunt you would like to share? Great! Did you have a hard hunt that was unsuccessful but had valuable lessons learned? Wonderful! We are interested in reviewing articles about all types of experiences and hunts.

It does not have to be JUST Black Bear! Other hunt stories are welcome as well!

If you have an applicable article or topic that you would like to share with our readers, please let us know and we can discuss and review it. We are still shaping our categories so are open to ideas and input.
