CONVENTION Photo Gallery
The WBH State Broadhead Shoot is a historic event. For over 70 years bowhunters have been getting together to refine their skills and equipment just before the archery deer season. The event is unique in that it's set up to approximate actual field conditions with the use of hunting equipment, including broadhead-tipped arrows.
But it's also much more than that for many bowhunters that spend the whole wheekend at the shoot. It's a rendezvous-type atmosphere with many camps and campfires enjoyed by all as they intermingle and enjoy stories, some tall tales, beverages, food and the common bond of bowhunting.
There are also novelty shoots, vendors, raffles and many other opportunities to practice and enjoy the weekend.
The Broadhead Shoot is held each year at Kennedy Park, N7512 County Road M, New Lisbon WI 53950. Just north of New Lisbon, WI.
