The purpose of the site is to promote bowhunting
and 3-D Archery as a sport that the whole family can enjoy. Bowhunting here in the great
state of Alabama has a long history. After the Civil War, our Confederate soldiers were
not allowed to own guns. Many of whom love the outdoors and hunting. These men then took
up bowhunting in order to pursue game not only for sport, but in many case, as a means of
putting food on the table for their families.
Here in the hills of Winston County, this war was especially hard. There were families that
had one son fighting for the Union and one son fighting for the Confederate. This lead to
Winston County forming its own state called the Free State of Winston. The
people of Winston County have a great love of nature and work to keep nature the same as it
was shown to them (if not in better condition) for future generations. This is also what the Winston Bowhunters
stand for. We remember the past and look to the future in order to perserve the sport
that we hold so dear to our hearts. We love nature, and we love to compete.
