The North Dakota Bowhunters Association (NDBA) was organized in 1952 by a group of dedicated archers. In 1953 North Dakota became the last state to have a special bow and arrow season. Today we have one of the longest bow seasons in the country. The NDBA is a group of dedicated archers working to improve and protect the rights and privileges of Bowhunters and to promote and expand the sport of archery in North Dakota.
