Maine Bowhunters Association Has Upgraded Everyone’s Membership
We have replaced the Northwoods Sporting Journal with a National Bowhunting Magazine, Bowhunting World. This is a highly professional high gloss magazine that’s focused on bowhunting. When you renew your membership, you’ll receive an annual 9 issue subscription to this magazine. “I wish my renewal was due now.”
You will now receive a quarterly “printed” version of our newsletter. Many members have told us that they miss receiving this publication. We’re extremely proud of it also. Our professional editor Val Marquez does an outstanding job putting this publication together, and I know how excited he is about getting the printed issues out. The full color version of this will also be available on our website.
Everyone will now receive a full family/household membership. When you fill out your renewal form, be sure to add the names of each family member on the form. These members must be a part of your household.
We have added a number of high quality professional archery shops to our 10% affiliates. These are the shops you should visit to take advantage of their knowledge and skills as well as 10% savings on select archery equipment. Our 10% affiliates are as follows:
Alder Brook Archery, Old Town Archery Center, Lakeside Archery, Central Maine Archery, Moosehead Trail Trading Post, Outdoor Sportsman, LL Cote, Audette’s Sporting Goods, and Kittery Trading Post.
Due to the hard work of our Directors we’re able to do all of this and keep the cost of membership down to $30/yr.
