"The Indiana Bowhunter Association was the first state bowhunting organization I joined. That was way back in the 1960s, when I was launching my bowhunting career and active in National Field Archery Association tournaments. I'd gotten to know Jack Brock and other IBA founders, and I admired their efforts to form an organization where target archery competition was secondary to fostering, expanding, and perpetuating Indiana bowhunting. In fact, the very first issue of Bowhunter magazine, published in 1971, contained a feature article I wrote about the IBA and its involvement in policing, protecting, and promoting our sport.

"Though I later moved out-of-state, I always kept in touch with IBA members and watched the organization mature and become involved in work with Indiana legislators, wildlife professionals, and conservation officers to represent the best interests of Indiana bowhunters and the game they pursue. When I retired and returned 'home' again to settle in southern Indiana, I began attending IBA meetings and offering monetary and moral support to assist the IBA's ongoing efforts. I encourage every Indiana bowhunter to check out the IBA and consider joining this fine group of dedicated individuals. They continue to pursue the basic principles which IBA founders established and shoulder a work load that benefits all Hoosier hunters. Why not lend your support and a helping hand?"
