Physically Challenged Bowhunters of America
- OUR MISSION
The PCBA works closely with hospitals and rehabilitation facilities.
A large percentage of people who work within institutions are non hunters.
Through matched involvement with PCBA and the patients of the facilities, nurses, doctors, therapists and administration personnel are introduced to bowhunting in a very positive manner.
This is one of the many ways PCBA does its part in promoting a positive image of the sport.
PCBA promotes the use of the crossbow by persons with certain permanent physical disabilities who choose to use it.
A win-win situation can be achieved when physically challenged archers and state bowhunting groups work together to institute regulations allowing physically challenged archers to hunt with a crossbow during regular archery seasons.
Our programs are made possible by contributions from companies, organizations and individuals who generally support us.
As support builds, we will continually extend our efforts and services offered to improve the quality of life for all physically challenged individuals.
- Our History
The Physically Challenged Bowhunters of America, Inc. was founded in October 1993 at Indian Bluffs in Lexington, Mississippi. Indian Bluffs is the home of Billy Ellis, noted bowhunter and author.
Billy, because of close relationships with several disabled bowhunting friends, spearheaded the effort to form a national organization to help disabled persons realize the therapeutic value of bowhunting.
Twenty-five disabled bowhunters from all over the United States gathered at Indian Bluffs on that cool rainy October weekend of 1993 to experience an outstanding exotic hunt that was donated by Billy Ellis.
These remarkable individuals had disabilities that ranged from amputees, to par and quadriplegics, to persons with birth defects, to people with crippling diseases, to even a blind person.
While there, with the guidance of Billy Ellis and several of his cohorts, this tremendously unique organization was formed.
This determined group of people sat down and decided on a name and what the mission of this new organization would be.
They elected officers and set priorities and goals for what they wanted their dream to accomplish.
A short time later the newly formed Physically Challenged Bowhunters of America had a set of by-laws in place, were incorporated and had applied for a non-profit status.
Since that time, we have achieved our non-profit status, our membership has grown to several hundred individual members, and almost one hundred corporate members, and we have new members joining almost daily.
We have helped a countless number of people achieve the ability to participate in the great sport of bowhunting.
We arrange and sponsor various hunts and shoots throughout the country, we work with numerous state and national archery organizations to help assist them with ways to get the disabled involved with their activities, and we advise companies with ideas on different adaptive equipment that will help get the disabled bowhunting.
Since forming in 1993, the PCBA has opened the great outdoor sport of target archery, competitive archery and bowhunting to literally tens of thousands of physically challenged across the U.S. and Canada.
Weíve made great strives, but we have many more physically challenged individuals to help and many more who within the year will find themselves physically challenged due to an accident or illness.
It can happen to any one of us at anytime!!
Winston County Alabama Bowhunters
The purpose of the site is to promote bowhunting and 3-D Archery as a sport that the whole family can enjoy.
Bowhunting here in the great state of Alabama has a long history.
After the Civil War, our Confederate soldiers were not allowed to own guns.
Many of whom love the outdoors and hunting.
These men then took up bowhunting in order to pursue game not only for sport, but in many case, as a means of putting food on the table for their families.
Here in the hills of Winston County, this war was especially hard.
There were families that had one son fighting for the Union and one son fighting for the Confederate.
This lead to Winston County forming its own state called the Free State of Winston.
The people of Winston County have a great love of nature and work to keep nature the same as it was shown to them (if not in better condition) for future generations.
This is also what the Winston Bowhunters stand for.
We remember the past and look to the future in order to preserve the sport that we hold so dear to our hearts.
We love nature, and we love to compete.

Second Amendment Sisters
SECOND AMENDMENT SISTERS Inc. was founded in 1999 by five women who got together on the internet.
Deb Altrath of New Jersey, Juli Bednarzyk of Illinois, Dianne Sawyer of South Carolina, Marinelle Thompson of Texas, and Kim Watson of Florida discovered they had something in common - that they didn't want the anti-rights Million Mom March to speak for them.
For five months these women, along with a small but dedicated group of volunteers, planned a rally of their own, using the internet to pull all the pieces together.
None of them had ever planned such an event before, but the combination of their personal skills and the "must-do" attitude of their supporters enabled them to make a powerful statement on May 12, 2000 - that there were women to whom the Second Amendment meant something, and to whom "gun control" was a false promise.

TO CHANGE THE WORLD ONE FAMILY AT A TIME
This site has been created to assist those that are struck by the unrelenting cost of groceries, namely meat.
My wife and I have really gone through some tough times as of late and by the GRACE OF GOD we have been able to recover.
We are now able to assist others that are now, in the postion that we found ourselves in.
I am fortunate to be able to assist in the operating and the stewardship of KLEIN FARMS in Burlington, TX.
There I found an unlimited resource of FERAL HOGS.
These animals are grain fed on the KLEIN FARM as well as all the surrounding farmers crops which are depredated on an ongoing basis.
I saw the need to remove these animals, but on the condition that the resource was to be used to assist in the feeding of everyone I could touch with RANDOM KINDNESS.
