Banquet Trophy Wall offers contest for a free target

By Harlin Welch

The last couple of years we have given away an opportunity to win a Rinehart target to all those members that bring a trophy to be displayed on the trophy wall at the banquet. This has increased the number of mounts that have been displayed as a result. This year everyone who brings in a head or mount will be given one chance at winning a 3D archery target.

For a lot of people one of the main highlights of the Banquet weekend is walking through and admiring all the animals that have been harvested by our members. Let’s make this year one of the best ever!

The general guidelines for trophy wall submissions are pretty simple and have been in place for years. Any bow- killed animal that has been killed in the last two years or unique mounts or animals that score near the top in its category.

Heads must be submitted between 9:00 and 11:00 on Saturday morning of the banquet. Bring them to the banquet room where a trophy registration table will be set up.

We have experienced help that will treat your trophy like their own, however be aware the NBA and the display crew cannot be held liable for accidents, dam- age, theft, or otherwise. We look forward to seeing you and all your hard-earned trophies! Hopefully you are even lucky enough to take home a new target!

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!
