Auction Donations Wanted 

Among the highlights of the annual NBA Banquet are the live and silent auctions. Our auction is held to raise money to be used to support the many contributions the association makes each year. In the past, the NBA has supported the National Archery in the School program, Youth Archery Mentor Hunting, Nebraska Games & Parks, Becoming an Outdoor Woman, Trail Tales Magazine, The University of Nebraska Forestry, Fisheries and Wildlife Division, Bowhunter Education, and several youth archery activities throughout the state. The NBA has become vitally important for these projects and other proactive bowhunting efforts. 

The NBA appreciates the generosity shown by businesses and individuals in the past. So again, your NBA is asking for support in donating an item or items to be used for our auctions at this year's banquet. Our auction also includes a special silent auction just for the kids attend- ing the weekend's festivities. 

The silent auction will open up on Saturday at 12:00 noon. If you have any items to donate, large or small, you can drop those off on Saturday morning. The live auction takes place at the end of the Awards Banquet on Saturday night. Winning bidders on these auctions are asked to pick up and pay for them at the close of the event 

Each company or individual that donates will be recognized at the banquet and in the NBA's newsletter. We would also be glad to display any literature you would like to include with your donation. 

If you’d like to donate an item for the silent or live auction, please contact:

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!
