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!

The history of the bow and arrow

There will be a Celebration of Life for Gary Thompson, who passed away Saturday April 6th, at Flint Tip on Friday April 19, 2019 from 6:00PM until 9:00PM.
It will be a potluck, so will be the standard format of adding you name and what you are bringing. His family wanted to have a chance for the archery community to get together and remember Gary, much for those who can’t make it to his services on Saturday April 20th at 1:00 PM at Hope Memorial Lutheran church in Enumclaw.
Any questions regarding the potluck s/b directed to Clarine Green (206) 293-1965 or (360) 825-3362 or email chipmcl@gmail.com.
So if you are attending, please add your names and what dish you will be bringing. — with Valarie McLarrin Loney.
