Nominate Today by Clicking Here to Request a Nomination Form!  

The CBA Bowhunter of the Year Award, is the most prestigious award presented by the Colorado Bowhunters Association, and may be the most misunderstood.  Some of this could be due to the title as it could imply that the winner had a very successful hunting season.  While bowhunting success is certainly a consideration; the award is really much, much more.

We are accepting 2023 nominations.

Bowhunter of the Year nominees shall have demonstrated a commitment to bowhunting in Colorado including but not limited to:

  • conducting public education on behalf of the CBA.
  • literary contributions to the CBA Magazine.
  • other awards received by the CBA.
  • volunteer leadership positions and special accomplishments.
  • work on behalf of bowhunting with organizations outside the CBA.
  • demonstrating ethical and professional conduct and fair chase pursuit.
  • harvesting a variety of animals in Colorado and across the United States.
