The Maryland Bowhunters Society is dedicated to promoting and preserving bowhunting;
educating the non-hunting public about the role of the bowhunter in wildlife management and
conservation; and educating bowhunters in safety, shooting skills, hunting techniques and
landowner relations. The MBS strongly advocates ethical bowhunting within the laws of the
jurisdiction hunted and in a sportsmanlike manner under the Rules of Fair Chase established
by the Pope and Young Club..
The Maryland Bowhunters Society works in close cooperation with the state legislature, county
and municipal governments, the Department of Natural Resources, and many hunting and
conservation organizations throughout Maryland and the United States including the MD
Legislative Sportsman's Foundation, the U.S. Sportsman's Alliance, the North American
Bowhunting Coalition and the Pope & Young Club.
We Would Like To Welcome You!
MBS led the charge to bring the National Archery in the Schools Program to our state and
we continue to support that effort through a partnership with MD DNR. We have raised and
donated over $45,000 and provided countless volunteers to help advance NASP in MD. We
are also a co-sponsor with the MD DNR in the Maryland Trophy Deer Contest. MBS actively
fights the anti-hunting movement and has been recognized by DNR and the Maryland
Wildlife Advisory Commission for our efforts to protect and promote hunting.
