Vermont Bowhunters Association
The Vermont Bowhunters Association, VBA, was established as a Vermont Non-Profit Corporation on April 28, 2011, and as a Federal 501(C)(3) in 2019 but its official beginning was September 12, 2010. Six bowhunters met in Danville to discuss the need for a statewide organization that would unite Vermont’s bowhunters and represent their views and concerns about topics that were important to bowhunting. At that meeting the six decided to form the VBA and to get as many people involved in the process as they could. Soon more hunters joined the group, working on the process of forming a legitimate state and federally recognized association. Even during that process, the founders were working on the issues.
To unite the Bowhunters of Vermont and to use their collective strength to work on behalf of current and future generations of Bowhunters, and to foster, protect, and preserve the sport of bowhunting and archery.
