Olympic recurve archers have a lot of equipment choices to make – will you opt for Hoyt or Win & Win risers and limbs, Easton X10 or Carbon Express Nano Pro X-Treme arrows, Axcel or Shibuya sights?

At the Bohning Company, our goal is to make products that solve problems for the archer. We saw how much time and energy Olympic Recurve archers were spending re-fletching fragile mylar vanes. Our solution: the Griffin Vane.
The Bohning Company, located in Missaukee County, Michigan, is the story of one man’s desire to solve a problem, which lead to 75 years of innovation and commitment to excellence. In 1946, at his family’s camp, an archer, chemist and family-man named Rollin Bohning sought to develop an adhesive that would bond points to arrows. That location, seven miles East and seven miles north of Lake City, Michigan, is the very same spot that Bohning operates from today.
Bohning’s Scott Hamlin says, “Any opportunity to talk about, and be in, the outdoors is something I will surely take the time to do. It is especially pleasing to talk about Bohning Archery and its 74 years as a privately owned manufacturer.
I am truly blessed to be able to travel our country and promote Bohning and Archery as a valued tradition. The experiences of these trips, and the people I meet confirm to me that our passion for all things archery is as strong as ever.
I recently discussed with Mike Avery some of the interesting facts about Archery, and Rollin Bohning’s work alongside Fred Bear and Doug Easton as three of Archery’s Heritage Manufacturers.”
