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!

 For information on becoming a member of TBW, or renewing your membership, see the Membership link on the menu.

           ***The 2021 Banquet has been postponed until further notice***

We held out as long as we could, but with continued COVID regulations we were forced to realize that it just wasn’t going to happen at this time. We look forward to putting on our shoots and having a banquet next year beginning with the Rock Shoot in April. Check back for more details.
