UBP News & Legislative Reports


Pennsylvania Bowhunting News is provided monthly as a supplement newsletter to the Pennsylvania Bowhunting quarterly magazine publication. 

At the United Bowhunters of Pennsylvania, we are dedicated to our mission to the Preserve, Promote, and Protect bowhunting opportunities in the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania.  We support game management based on sound biological principles and a "resource first" philosophy.  The UBP was founded in the spring of 1985 by a group of dedicated bowhunters who desired to unite all of Pennsylvania's bowhunters into one organization with a mission to fight the growing anti-hunting movement.  Now the UBP is the longest-lasting and most influential bowhunting organization in the Commonwealth.
