Welcome to, Traditional Bowhunters of Washington!
Traditional Bowhunters of Washington has been promoting traditional archery since 1990. Our mission is to promote the use and crafting of traditional equipment. We are families, friends and members of the community with a goal of enriching the lives of adults and children alike. We appreciate the beauty of handcrafted bows, arrows and archery tackle.
Our members are individuals that adhere to and believe in the rules of fair chase as set down by the Pope & Young Club.
Every year TBW hosts a number of exciting and challenging events for the whole family. Visit our events page to see when and where!

“Go afield with a good attitude, with respect for the wildlife you hunt and for the forest and fields in which you walk. Immerse yourself in the outdoor experience it will cleanse your soul and make you a better person”
The history of the bow and arrow
is the history of mankind”

***The 2020 Rendezvous has been canceled***
We held out as long as we could, but with the landowner having concerns about too large a crowd and the health of citizens of Kittitas county, the state stalling the move to phase 4 indefinitely, we were forced to realize that it just wasn’t going to happen. We look forward to putting on our shoots next year beginning with the Rock Shoot in April. Look for a projected schedule in the next newsletter.
