Welcome to the Website of the Georgia Bowhunter & Archery Association, GBAA.
We are affiliated with the National Field Archery Association, NFAA; a national archery organization since 1939.That’s 75 years of promoting Field archery and bow-hunting nationwide!
The GBAA promotes numerous shooting styles including freestyle, freestyle limited, barebow, competitive bowhunter, bowhunter freestyle, freestyle limited, recurve, and traditional. GBAA competition divisions include Cub, Youth, Young Adult, Adult, Senior, Silver Senior, Master Senior and Professional. Several tournaments—indoor, field, target, marked 3D, and unmarked 3D—are hosted each year, and draw archers from across the Southeast.
Interest in archery is growing across the country. New archers are looking for a place to shoot and learn more about the sport. Archers who put their bows down, for different reasons, are picking them up again. All these people, young and not so young, are looking to connect with a club! Send us your club information so non-members can find you. Send us your club name, location, mailing address and web address/email information to put on the GBAA web site. We can add a link to your website or Facebook. Also include the date and time of your club meetings or club activity so we can help new archers find a home.
