The banquet guest speaker is Matt Stutzman, known as “the Armless Archer.” Stutzman was born without arms but said he was “blessed to have been raised by two incredible (and incredibly patient) parents who taught me long ago that impossible is a state of mind … and not one that I should embrace. It’s a lesson that has served me well, and one that my wife and I are trying to pass on to our three young boys on a daily basis.” He said his goal is to be the best archer in the world. He is a member of the United States Para Archery Team.

The North Dakota Bowhunters Association was organized in 1952 by a group of archers dedicated to promoting the sport of archery in North Dakota and improving and protecting the rights and privileges of bowhunters. The NDBA promotes archery education, tournaments and the principles of “fair chase” in all archery hunting. The NDBA serves as the unified voice for all North Dakota archers in communications with the North Dakota Game and Fish Department and the North Dakota State Legislature.

The NDBA Bowhunters Foundation Inc. was organized by the NDBA exclusively for charitable, scientific and educational purposes and provides funding for activities, which advances the sport of archery and promotes archery education and bowhunting in North Dakota
