What has CBH/SAA done for me?
Many times fellow archers will ask ,” Why should I join CBH/SAA, What have they done for me lately?" What they fail to realize is a good majority of the current archery hunting opportunities that are here today are because of the ground work that CBH/SAA did over the last ten years. One opportunity was getting archery Elk Hunts that did not exist until the legislative team got involved. The second opportunity was getting "Youth Hunt Tags." The increase that CBH/SAA proposed were for all youth hunters, regardless of method of take. Take a look at the accomplishments.
