   Memberships allow you full access to the club grounds and the opportunity to shoot in leagues held by the club. You can also attend the Annual Banquet, which is usually held in late March or April. Enrollment into the Big Game Honor Roll, league awards, raffle prizes and good camaraderie are all part of the Annual Banquet. You also can attend our monthly meetings when you are a member. These are held the 2nd Tuesday of each month at 7:00pm. The May-October meetings are held at the Clubhouse and the November- April meetings are held at Monks of Baraboo.



   Members are encouraged to be involved in any activity that they are interested in. Although not required with a membership helping with club functions is a great way to meet other members, get involved with archery in your area and learn about other things happening in the archery and bow hunting world. Member participation would be greatly appreciated in course clean-up days, set up and takedown targets for leagues and tournaments, in the clubhouse during tournaments, moving stakes for leagues, being a scorekeeper for leagues, general maintenance, attending meetings, and even running for an officer position are all activities that help make our club a great organization. All members are expected to adhere to the Mission Statement of the Baraboo Bowmen. The Mission Statement can be found at the top of each page of the website.

Membership Application

     We have secured our date for the Annual Banquet on 3/31/2018. It will be a pot luck dinner with some refreshments provided, so the same format as last year. Chasers has again agreed to lets us  their venue, we will have start time of 5:00pm. A good time was had by all who attended last year so hopefully we will see a larger turnout this year.
     The Clubs grounds have been logged. Although it will make for a different look on the property hopefully it will allow us to make it a better fit for what we aim to be. A challenging bow course that allows realistic hunting shots, but to make it so the beginner hunting archer can progress into a safe, proficient, and confident hunting archer. We also want  too challenge the archer who is out to perfect there archery skills no matter how advanced you are. The Baraboo Bowmen think we have headed into that direction with the changes we made on our practice range last year. It is a long process that we hope will progress into a facility that can help all who enjoy bowhunting and archery. We have a couple more updates to the practice range that we will be working on this winter that should make the range even more relaxing and make the archery experience even better.
   We have had some opportunities come our way to hopefully help our financial standings. We have the opportunity to cut the evasive grapevine on the property and get paid by the DNR to do it. This will be a nice opportunity for us to make some much needed cash. February 24 at 8:00am will be our first group outing to cut the grapevine. I you can make it chainsaws and bow saws are the best option although if you have a sturdy pair of loppers you can help[ with cutting. I f you have none of these tools you can apply the supplied chemical that kills the vine.
   The clubhouse passcode will be changed for 2018, so get your membership up to date so you can utilize the facility when weather improves.
  Leagues and tournaments have been finalized out.Check the events page for dates and times. We want to progress with the ever changing world of archers and hunters. If you have input on how you would like to see how some club events are done send an email or call a board member and get your thoughts known.

Turkey season is quickly approaching!!!

    Hope your having a great winter,
