Locate a club by state and get contact information. Below the clubs are mentors who have volunteered to help you get started shooting traditional equipment. If you would like to list your traditional club, or be listed as a mentor, please use the forms in the right hand column.

I hate to have to put this disclaimer out here, but here goes. Traditional Bowhunter Magazine and TBM, Inc. are not responsible for anything that happens through your contact with any of the clubs or individuals on this listing. We put them here in good faith that they are great people willing to help, but we don’t know that. Please use caution any time you are meeting someone in person that you met through the internet. Anyone under 18 should be accompanied by a parent or guardian when meeting a mentor for the first time. What a world we live in!

With that said, find a club in your area and get involved. The future of our sport depends on hard working individuals and clubs that bring others into the fold. Many times a few dedicated members do most of the work so all can enjoy the benefits. Be one of those hard workers.
