Wisconsin Bowhunting 

Heritage Foundation, Inc., 

The Wisconsin Bowhunting Heritage Foundation was created in 2004 with the goal of collecting and preserving our state's rich bowhunting history, and then showcasing that history for all to enjoy. To do this the WBHF Officers and Directors have created a museum of archery and bowhunting equipment at the headquarters of the Wisconsin Bowhunters Association in Clintonville. A wide assortment of tackle is on display in a family friendly environment. The museum is open five days a week during normal business hours. ADMISSION IS FREE. Please call (715) 823-4670 for additional information. If you're a bowhunter you'll enjoy your time at the museum!


Monday thru Friday

10AM - 2 PM
Weekends and evenings
by appointment.

If you are planning a trip to the Museum, please call ahead at 715-823-4670.

Enjoy a walk through the history of bowhunting in Wisconsin.


You can help keep this wonderful historical record of Wisconsin's bowhunting heritage alive.

Be a sponsor. Receive a beautiful plaque in recognition of your generous support.


In the past few years the WBHF Board has lost a couple of valuable members. We are in need of some dedicated bowhunters to join the Board who have an interest in preserving Wisconsin’s storied bowhunting heritage.

From time to time we have people donate items to the museum for the express purpose of having the museum sell those items to raise much needed funds. We already have an established ebay site and account. We need someone who knows their way around ebay to list, sell, and ship these occasional items.

We are also in need of someone with woodworking skills to help in the construction of the occasional needed display case.

Even if you don’t possess either of these skills but have an interest in serving please contact to discuss the matter or have any questions answered.
