GIVEAWAY Merry PBS Christmas from Steve & Steve
« on: November 29, 2010, 04:08:00 PM »
Merry Christmas TradGang from Steve O. and Steve H.   Steve and I were recently discussing how being members of the Professional Bowhunters Society has benefited each of us.  We have both enjoyed the fraternal nature of the organization and have met some of our best friends and hunting partners through the PBS.

The following excerpt is straight from the PBS website at    http://probowsociety.org/.  


 “For over a quarter of a century, the Professional Bowhunters Society has been at the forefront in the perpetuation of bowhunting. No other single organization has contributed as much in time, effort, and resources in defending bowhunters and bowhunting.

    The Professional Bowhunters Society is an organization of experienced bowhunters. Its format and foundation is one based on leadership and "knowledge through experience." The P.B.S. is dedicated to the advancement and preservation of bowhunting as a major outdoor sport. The P.B.S. encourages the development of skill in bowhunting as well as the exchange of knowledge between bowhunters. The organization is dedicated to the belief that more personal satisfaction is derived from skilled hunting techniques and that bowhunters have a responsibility for efficiency in their sport and must use equipment adequate to do so. But foremost, it is the brotherhood of most of the best bowhunters in the world. We have chosen our standards, met and faced the challenge. We are not discriminatory but selective in our membership. We feel everyone is not cut out to be a bowhunter. We feel personal satisfaction in our sport must be measured in direct relation to the degree of challenge involved. Satisfaction lies in the hunting more than the shooting.

    Many people ask why the word "Professional" in the organization's title. To some it means P.B.S. members bowhunt for a living. Some have said it makes members sound like "hired killers." Both of these assumptions are wrong. The term "Professional" in the name denotes professionalism in both attitude and skill, synonymous in the manner a professional pertains to a profession. If you feel this description fits you, we invite you to join us?”


Steve and I would like to ask any interested individuals to  please check out our website and forum and if you agree with the ideals of the Society let us know on this website and Steve and I will draw one lucky individuals name and pay for their first years’ membership dues.  We have an awesome quarterly magazine that is already like having Christmas four times per year in itself!

In addition we have a biannual gathering that moves about the country.  The next Gathering will be in Portland the last week of March, 2012.

Once again a Merry Christmas from Steve & Steve!

There are a bunch of very serious, dedicated, and ethical bowhunters here on Trad Gang that aren't PBS members now, but certainly should be.  Go to the PBS site and check it out.  Read what they are all about, and see if it fits with your own personal ideas and philosophies.  

If someone wouldn't mind having their first years dues paid for by a guy named Joe instead of Steve I'd be glad to take care of one additional new member.

I recently rejoined after being a regular member back 'a few' years ago.  We who care about bowhunting should become members. Strength in numbers, plus a good organization with a good quarterly magazine. Check it out, you won't be sorry.

Yes a great organization to be a part of! Steve H. was my sponsor to regular membership, now several years ago. What a great influence he has been for all bowhunters. It is made up of many such as Steve, always willing to help and assist bowhunters and will fight to defend our rights.

A public thankyou Steve.

I have read and understand the goals and objectives of PBS.

I think I have been involved in several of these very activities for the last 20 years but just on a state level.

Thanks for the consideration. Please enter my name.

Ok, maybe I'm a little thick headed, I read the by-laws, I see the sponsors, sounds like all good stuff, I see the anti crossbow stuff (too late for my state of Michigan) but I cannot tell if training wheels are allowed ? (not that I want them) just a curiosity question before I think about joining.

Dan D, PBS is for all ethical and "professional in their actions" bowhunters. While all of us here on TradGang shoot bows without wheels, they are not excluded from PBS.

Steve"s", what a great gesture. Draw another name from the hat and I'll pay for it. There just aren't any better bowhunters and PBS type of guys than those that visit this site.
