The state fair is rapidly approaching and will start August 10th and run thru the 19th. The Bowfishing Association of Illnomis (BAI) will have a great bowfishing display area and on water bowfishing range there as they team up with the IDNR in Conservation World. Right now we will only have the range in operation on the weekends unless they get more weekday member volunteers.
BAI will have some great bowfishing gear to display including points from the past as well as modern points, AMS reels will be on the range bows as well as on display stands for all to use and try, and they will have a crossbow set up with an AMS big game reel and float for everyone to check out. Also there will be loads of gear, pictures, sponsor catalogs and coupons for the visitors.
Visit the Illinois State Fair and and especally Conservation World as the BFA spreads the word about this great sport!
