2022 Banquet Special Guest

Shawn Luchtel

March 18-20, 2022

In a few short weeks, we will celebrate our 42nd awards banquet.  Join us for amazing seminars, shoot a round or two on the range (indoor and outdoor) and bid on that hunt you’ve had your eye on at the live auction.  We hope to see you there!

The West Virginia Bowhunters Association welcomes Shawn Luchtel, as our guest speaker for the 42nd Annual Award Banquet.  Shawn is the President of the Heartland Bowhunter, which produces an award-winning program on the Outdoor Channel.  The Heartland Bowhunter cast pioneered a new style of cinematography over 14 years ago.  Their real-world camera angles and storytelling were unique to outdoor television industry.  So much so, that many other outdoor productions today have copied their extremely popular format.

Shawn and his group along with hunting, put on an outdoor film school that teaches their expert techniques to budding videographers.   The Heartland Bowhunter crew video documents the adventures of the team as they bow hunt all over the mid-west for anything from whitetail deer to Canada geese!  His passion bowhunting big whitetail bucks is well known.  We look forward to his visit with us!
