The VBA helps Maine protect bear Hunting!
There is a referendum coming to a vote this fall that would stop Maine's bear hunting season as we know it today.  While the VBA is a young organization with limited funds we realize the impact this could have on not just the state of Maine but all of New England and indeed the country.  We have sent financial support to Maine Wildlife Conservation Council and hope to help out more in the comimg months.  You too can help go to:  http://savemainesbearhunt.com/

Membership renewals:  We are in the process of mailing out membership renewal applications.  Please, please, please renew your membership.  You can even pay via Pay Pal, if that is easier.  Anyone who renews or joins, plus life members, will be entered into a drawing for a beautiful RER recurve bow made by bowyer Bob Macilvane from Guildhall VT.
Raffle:  We have some great prizes this year including a Bowtech Carbon Knight to give away this year at our shoot, so please see a member to purchase raffle tickets.
Membership meeting: We are excited that Adam Murkowski, State Wildlife Biologist,  has agreed to meet with us and have a chat about our proposal to lengthen the archery season...Please come if you can. Get the date and time of the meeting plus directions on our Upcoming Events page.
