Tom Nelson, American Archer host, is 2022 Banquet Speaker

A lifelong resident of Grand Ledge Michigan, Tom Nelson has been shooting a bow and arrow for almost 50 years. His love for archery began as a young boy and now he brings his passion for archery and bowhunting into millions of homes each week as host of the award-winning "American Archer" TV Show, now in its 25th season on the outdoor channel.

Tom is also a regular guest on ESPN Radio and A.M. Outdoors Radio and also writes a monthly bowhunting column for Michigan Out-of-Doors Magazine. He has also written over 300 articles, published in magazines such as Bowhunter, Western Bowhunter, Hunting the West and Safari, as well as many others. Tom was recently recognized by the Michigan Bowhunters Association as a Master Bowhunter, only the 12th person to be honored with this award in over 60 years.

During his almost five decades of bowhunting, Tom has taken over 300 big game animals representing over 30 different species while bowhunting in 27 states, eight Canadian provinces, Mexico, Namibia, South Africa, New Zealand, and Europe.

Tom is a past board member and vice president of The Pope and Young Club and was recently elected to the Archery Hall of Fame Board of Directors.

About us

In 1984, the idea of an organization that would bring bowhunters together with a common goal to preserve and protect bowhunting was formed and the Nebraska Bowhunters Association (NBA) was born. Now, the NBA is one of Nebraska's premier hunting organizations, with a growing membership, family friendly events, and a firm passion to continue to preserve and promote bowhunting in Nebraska. 

Become a member

Although bowhunting is often a private, quiet affair, members of the NBA benefit greatly from organizing together. Besides the political clout and united front against those opposed to hunting, the camaraderie is perhaps the best bargain for the money. NBA members meet across the state throughout the year at our Banquet in March and Jamboree in August. We would love to have you join us!
