At the Bowfishing Association of Iowa, (B.A.I.), we have something to offer all bowfishermen, women, and children. For those who like to put their skills to the test we offer a variety of tournaments with cash and prizes, as well as our big fish recognition program.

Kid’s play a very important role at the B.A.I, since our origination in 2001 we have held clinics annually for kids to get them educated about bowfishing including safety, and the conservation values it adds to the environment. Plans for the future is to have a youth bowfishing tournament.

If you like competition or just like to go out for fun the B.A.I. has something to offer everyone, young and old, newcomers and veterans, we are here for you. At the B.A.I we are all about making friends, spending good quality time outdoors, and sharing memories that will last a lifetime. Join today and help us promote this fast growing sport.
