    • The Bearpaw Kill Tournament is a very speical – one of a kind – archery event. This world famous archery tournament is also a prize money tournament! In the final, a total of 1800 Euro in cash bonuses can be won. The 1st place archer will win 1000 Euros for the overall tournament victory. On the 5th and 6th of May, more than 130 archers participated in this challenging 10th Bearpaw Kill Tournament held in Germany.

      Henry Bodnik strategically designed and created each shot situation himself for this special jubilee tournament. Each and every shot was challenging and demanded a lot from the individual archers.

      None of the shot locations were further than 30 meters away from the targets! Nevertheless, it was not easy to place the arrow safely in the kill zone! Especially in the hunting classification of this tournament, misses outside the rating zone (kill zone) are more than annoying!

      Scoring 1st day: 2 rounds
      1st and 2nd arrow kill: Add 10 points per arrow
      1st and 2nd Arrow Body: Deduct 2 points per arrow
      Miss: 0 points

      Scoring 2nd day: 1 round of arrows
      1st arrow Kill: Add 20 points
      1st arrow body: Subtract 5 points
      Miss: 0 points

      Henry Bodnik came up with some very special shots for this tournament. There were some shots on a narrow fish (Gar) which was placed approximately 40 cm under the surface of the water surface. This was a new experience for many of the archers who shot at the submerged fish target!

      Floating ducks swimming in the small stream back and forth quite uncontrollably completed the realistic picture of these special shots perfectly!!

      All the individual shots throughout the course were very lifelike and challenging. The tough angles, obstacles , and unusual shooting positions made it difficult to find the narrow “safe shot” paths that would allow you to place your arrows in the “Kill Zone” of the 3D animals. Lunging, leaning, and shooting from assorted kneeling positions are not uncommon in the Bearpaw Kill tournament!

      At the end of the first day of the tournament, a special night time competition was held starting at 10:00 PM.  In the Bearpaw Night Shoot 2 participants had to compete against each other in a direct competition. In this KO system, both archers had to shoot at and break an illuminated balloon before their opponent to advance to the next round and so on.  Only then could you advance to one of the first place positions, then to be considered in the distribution of the prizes. Each winner was also awarded a certificate to commemorate their achievement in this special competition.

      Many thanks to Denis from FuwaForestFilms EDC Gear for his videos of our 10th Bearpaw Kill tournament! Here’s the first video of the 2nd day of the tournament!

      First we wanted to show you the Super Finale of the tournament we just had in Eisenbach!

      In the finale, Manuela Bürkle from Switzerland eliminated her male competition. It was a close race –  Manuela was the last of the three to pick up her bow when they raced to the table – but the first to pop the balloon!  And so, Manuela won the finale for the 1000 Euros prize money from Bearpaw Products with her fast accurate shooting under pressure with her Bodnik Bows Hunter Recurve.

      A breathtaking duel! Watch the video to see the action!

    • BLOGPOST: BEARPAW INTRODUCES ITS DEALERS

      We are delighted to see BEARPAW PRODUCTS build on our long-standing partnership with Bogen Treff in Wehnerfeld in the greater Oldenburg area. Despite increasing competition, the owners Sascha and Marion Oeltjen remain true to their traditions and core principles.

      BP: Hello Sascha, thank you for your time. Please introduce our readers to your “Bogen Treff” (Bow Meeting) concept.

      SO: Of course – I’d be glad to! The Bogen Treff is a specialty shop for archery. Our strengths include; offering expert advice, giving our customers the opportunity to test all our bows and always – we are always ready to listen and visit with our customers. As the word “Treff” (meeting) already says – in the Bogen Treff you can visit our shop to meet with each other – everyone is welcome, even if you just would like to “chat” for a short time or simply want to enjoy a coffee.

      BP: That sounds like a very customer-friendly and inviting atmosphere. Who is all welcome to visit you?

      SO: In the Bogen Treff,  Traditional, WA / FITA and compound archers from all over the region stop by all the time. We offer an indoor shooting range for bow testing and shooting, plus an 18-meter front-end with four targets and a 70-meter track. Adjacent (200 meters) to the store is the 3D archery course for the 3D Archers. It has 40 stations and over 100 locations to shoot from. Furthermore, we are certified trainers of the Instinctive Archery Academy and train traditional archers right here in our own classroom.

      BP: Very impressive! Your place sounds like a paradise for archers. What do you think about the topic of “online sales”? Do you have an online store?

      Click here to visit Bogentreff’s website

      SO: The special thing about us is that we intentionally do not offer an online store. We believe in personal service. We think – it is much better for an archer to try a bow out first and to have someone that is knowledgeable right there with them that they can talk to. When you can have a real conversation with your customer you can help them much more. I myself have been shooting bows since childhood, no matter if WA, compound or traditional, so I have a long history of shooting that helps me help my customers.

      BP: You are an absolute expert. Which form of archery is your biggest passion?

      SO: Even though I have experience in all forms of archery, in the end I stuck with traditional archery. This is where the roots of the Bogen Treff come from. More than half of our inventory is traditional. We do not run our business only to get the maximum profit, but our hearts beat for archery – it’s in our blood!  For us it’s not just a job, it’s a way of life. We are very impressed with the consistent high quality of all Bearpaw products and we are proud to offer your entire line of archery products, but we are also impressed by the magic and passion that Henry Bodnik pours back into the world of traditional archery. This passion is always amazing and remarkable, and gratefully it’s also contagious.

      BP: Thanks for your kind words. We’re also very grateful to have partners like you and Marion by our side and in our dealer network. We look forward to working with you and to continue for many years on our mutual mission for spreading the passion for traditional archery.

      PS: Of course – and remember – if you ever feel like visiting Sascha and Marion Oeltjen in our shop, you are always welcome.
