Meet the Team
These are the people who work hard daily to maintain our rights concerning bowhunting in Alberta
I started bowhunting in the early 1980's. I became involved in the ABA after attending several banquets. I was the Regulations chairman for a few years and then on to President. This will be my 15th year in that position. It is important we do not take for granted the privileges and opportunities we have as hunters and bowhunters. They just do not happen on their own – lots of hard work by many people over the years has led to what we all enjoy today.

I started bowhunting in 1982 and joined the ABAA shortly after that. I became involved on the executive in 1989 and am proud of the ABA's accomplishments to this point.

Hi my name is Ray Melom, I am a lifetime ABA member and started my bowhunting passion at the age of 16. Like many other members of the ABA executive I am grateful for the bowhunting opportunities we have in Alberta. I am excited to help do my part to maintain the current opportunities we have and help create new ones for future generations.
I have been actively associated with the Alberta Bowhunters Association for many years. My drive comes from my family and love of the outdoors.
I have a wife and three kids and have a career in the oil and gas industry. I grew up bowhunting and was an ABA member off and on until 2010. I attended my first ABA AGM meeting and realized how much the ABA is doing for me as a Bowhunter. I decided to get more involved and volunteer my time where needed.

Cam has been a passionate bowhunter since he was old enough to hold a bow, thanks to his dad and friends, many of whom are now the "old timers" at ABA functions. Ensuring bowhunters in Alberta have good regulatory opportunities and good places to hunt are interests of Cam's, as are the social gatherings and friends made throughout he ABA.
I’m a avid outdoorsman trapper and traditional archer. I have been married to my wife Lindsay for 12 years and we have four children. I work in the oil and gas industry, and in my free time I work with new traditional archers on getting started and setting up their bows.
I have been a long time member of the ABA and proudly became a life member in 2008.
An avid outdoorsman and tournament 3D archer, you can find me at many local 3D Shoots both indoor and outdoors. I live in central Alberta and my favourite hunts are mule deer spot and stalk and calling elk.
Director at large
I have been bow hunting big game since I turned twelve and I have been a professional guide since I was eighteen. For my entire life, archery and bow hunting has been a major focus and it has taken me some incredible places throughout North America. Now being a father, I look forward to teaching my child about bow hunting and the adventures that come along with it. I got involved with the Alberta Bowhunter's Association not only because of my passion for bow hunting, but to ensure my son is able to grow up and enjoy bowhunting .
I started bowhunting in 2009 and I’ve been hooked ever since. Chasing sheep is my passion, but I do make time for all the species Alberta has to offer. I joined the ABA board because I realize the amazing bowhunting opportunities that we have in Alberta didn’t happen by accident, and I want to do my part to see that we continue have these opportunities in the future.
I am a Life Member of the ABA and a member of the executive team simply because I watched those who went before us fight for the season's, opportunities and access that we have as bowhunters in Alberta, and believe we need to do the same for the future of bowhunting here in Alberta.
A long time member and executive member Mike is passionate in his role as membership director.
