Heydeerman, email me your address and I'll send you a membership app/brochure. Or even easier, go the the PBS website that Walt posted on page one and you can join via Paypal. Also there, you can check out the happenings at our upcoming banquet...you're right next door! We'd love to have you back, and to have you attend the banquet as well.
Same goes to you Whip, Tippit and everyone else. I wish all PBS members could go the banquet. Now THAT would really be somethin!!
Mark, very, VERY well stated.

Yep, well put by Mark. I'm a life member also. And like he said, PBS is mainly a fraternal organization.
If any of you can possibly swing it, by all means go to the banquet in Pittsburgh in March. This is going to be one huge and fantastic gathering. Members come from all over the country to attend these banquets every two years. You won't regret going but will be sorry if you miss it!

I'm not a "joiner" by nature but PBS represents everything good in bowhunting to me. like any group we have our disagreements but when it comes down to it, we are all involved for the betterment of bowhunting.

For a LONG time, I thought PBS was only for people "in" the industry...how wrong I was!

Whip--you MUST go to the gathering--you have to fill my spot! We went to the last one in SLC (my first, because I had just joined)and I was blown away. I never figured I would miss one after that, but my buddy and I are going to draw Iowa deer tags next year and we have to spend a lot of time on the ground out there...we are going to scout on our way out to Kansas for the archery turkey opener April 1st. Bad timing for sure, but we only get so much time off work! But I digress...

When you GO to the gathering, you will find one big family and more bowhunting knowlede in one place than you would think possible.

"Professional" I have found out, means not how you make your living, but how you portray yourself in the field (and life in general). PBS members care deeply about everything bowhunting.

I went to Salt Lake and enjoyed it. When I went home a E-mailed them and they never responded so I dropped the thought of joining.

I didn't join for a long time either, because I thought it was only for those in the business, I finally joined in 85 and went to the first banquet with PBS very much on trial IMO, I was blown away, here was all these idols of mine just standing around shooting the breeze and they also were blown away! Thats the strength of PBS imo, you really need to go the banquet and meet the members of the family! You also will not believe the items donated, I haven't seen anything to compare to it.

PrarrieDog, sorry for the unsatisfactory experience. For some reason, the email you probably used has yet to be changed on our website (I just checked it). So the office probably never received your inquiry. The correct email is: probowhunters@roadrunner.com
if you are intersted, and I hope that you are.

There isn't much more I can add to the previous discriptions. The PBS is the home of serious bowhunters. At each banquet I have attended I leave with a feeling of kinship thats hard to discribe. Many people with the same passion as mine. I will be in Pittsburg with my fellow members. It always feels like a homecomming. Some of the most ethical and nicest folks you'll ever meet are proud to be PBS members.

I was an associate member for several years,but I didn't see any brotherhood going on,except the "famous hunters" hanging together,and the "rich guys" hanging together,patting each other on the back,and ignoring the regular folks.I got tired of it and let my dues go.

The only guy who was down to earth and treated me like he knew me all his life was Fred Asbell,one of the people in bowhunting that I really admired.I saw him a couple of years later and he remembered me.I would ride the river any day with him.

Dirty Bill,
I'm an absolute nobody...regular folks. Every PBS member I've ever run into has treated me with respect and civility...well except for Marty McMahon but that's another story! HE HE

I have been to a banquet and had everyone speak to me...and none of them knew me from Adam's housecat.

It couldn't have been that you were shy,
could it?

There were 300 people there, and of course, after years of going to these events a great many of them know one another, and when you are able to get together with people you know you reminisce, you catch up...but I bet if you went again and this time tried a little "walking up" to some of the groups that are talking and introduce yourself you would be included right into the conversations...I was.

Attending the PBS banquet in Charlotte in 96 introduced me to several " big names " who took the time to chat with me and would later become great friends. Here I am , a"nobody" yet I sat next to Mr. Glenn St. Charles for the banquet supper and had Mrs. St. Charles treat ME like a celebrity simply because I owned a bow her son made. She even insisted on taking MY picture. The event was an enriching experience. And if I recall, there was no way to distinguish a regular member from associate. Everyone was treated equally.
