Bowhunting

Bowhunt­ing is a sport of eth­i­cal­ly hunt­ing fer­al ani­mals with bows and arrows. The Aus­tralian Bowhunters Asso­ci­a­tion Inc. teach­es safe and eth­i­cal bowhunt­ing. To achieve this, each ABA club runs Bowhunt­ing Pro­fi­cien­cy Cours­es, which a mem­ber must suc­cess­ful­ly pass before being per­mit­ted to go hunt­ing. Bowhunt­ing trips are usu­al­ly arranged by club mem­bers per­son­al­ly, either on gov­ern­ment hunt­ing reserves, on pri­vate prop­er­ty with own­ers per­mis­sion or on com­mer­cial hunt­ing properties/​safaris.
