Why you should support the CBA.
Hunting and fishing are forms of outdoor recreation as are hiking, rock climbing, biking, and 4-wheeling. Not everyone however, participates in outdoor recreation activities but those that do are often passionate about their involvement.
Bowhunters can probably be characterized as one of the more passionate groups of outdoor enthusiasts. We dearly love the outdoors and the wild things that reside within it. We are a diverse and extended family who regards bow hunting as a perfect union of man and the natural world. Our love for bow hunting and the scenes that accompany the privilege can only be understood by those that relish the environs as deeply as we do. We are literally drawn to nature…autumn arriving like a golden chariot piercing the pure air and azure sky on contrails of yesterday’s dreams and tomorrow’s promises. Our treks into the tall grasses and deep forest quench an ancient urge that others cannot apprehend. Yet, defeating our quarry isn't nearly as important as having had the opportunity to be among them… having had the opportunity to be part of something greater than ourselves.
There are those however, that totally disregard our passion for the outdoors and are financially motivated to take those freedoms from us. Organizations like HSUS, PETA, and others are determined to destroy hunting starting with archers…and will go to any means to accomplish their goals.
If you bowhunt in Colorado and are not currently a member of the CBA ... please consider joining today. We need your support to protect the privilege so many enjoy. Here are some other reasons to join:
Six issues of The Colorado Bowhunter magazine every year
Drawing entries for free bows and other top prizes
Personal input to season structures and other state regulations
Special information mailings on CBA events and 3-D shoots
Personal identification as a valued member and conservationist
Access to future "members only" features on the CBA website
