Wisconsin Bowhunters Association Buttons 1942 -Present
According to the 1973 Otis Bersing book Bow and Arrow Big Game Hunting in Wisconsin, "WBH had its start in 1933 when a deer committee of the Wisconsin Archery Association began the promotion of bow and arrow deer hunting. In 1941, Roy Case, "Dean of Archery" in Wisconsin, called the archers together and organized the new state association." A year later in 1942 WBH began issuing membership buttons and have continued to do so every year since.
