Flemish bowhunting association


The Flemish Bowhunting Association ( FBA ) is a team of driven and well-trained experienced experts who form the knowledge center and are a point of contact for all persons or agencies seeking adequate information regarding game management with the modern bow.


Through a strongly expanded training platform and a team of certified and experienced instructors, the FBA aims to form well-trained and responsible hunters. These hunters will hopefully, in the near future, within a legal framework, be able to hunt with the bow in Flanders.


The FBA and its members have an absolute respect for the law, fellow humans, wildlife and nature and carry this out as respectful hunters.
