Bow Hunters of Alabama (BHA) is a group that promotes archery in counties throughout the state. Archery shoots and tournaments are held every weekend from February until August. These shoots and tournaments feature 3D targets that are set up to simulate hunting situations in a wooded area and allow shooters to practice determining yardage and good shooting techniques.

Each county in the state has its own club. The Blount County Archery Club is a non-profit organization. Alan Cheney grants the club use of property around Limestone Lodge at Limestone Springs, where the club sponsors two or three shoots per season. Proceeds benefit local projects and Blount County National Archery in the Schools Program (NASP). Cleveland, Oneonta, and Susan Moore currently are members of the program. The Blount County Archery Club donates money to all three programs for equipment or tournament fees.
