The Alberta Bowhunters Association was formed in 1956 and is the voice of the Alberta bowhunter. The ABA is run entirely by volunteers and collaborates with other user groups and organizations, with government agencies at all levels, to further bowhunting opportunities (as well as hunting and access opportunities in general) and protect the opportunities we now enjoy. ABA sits on various big game management plan review committees, Regulation Change and Policy Reviews committees.
