About us

Blackfoot river Bowmen History

Blackfoot River Bowmen was established in 1976, and has been a large part of the archery community in the Southeast Idaho area.  Nestled in the river bottoms along the winding snake river, It not only offers members access to an indoor facility, but it is a community of like minded individuals who all share a passion for Archery. Bowhunters and Target Archers alike can come together to shoot and make a place for our sport to continue to grow.

She likes to bake, go camping, make stained glass items, and of course shoot her bow. She isn’t a hunter of furry animals but does enjoy killing balloons. They are less messy but are not as tasty & are pretty chewy.

Vice President/Publicity

Dallin is an Idaho native and enjoys competitive archery but his true passion is bowhunting. He is an avid outdoorsman and can usually be found somewhere in the backcountry of Idaho.

ED ANDERSON
Education Director

My wife comments as to why I always seem to kill on the last day of my hunt. After thinking about it, it always is the last day. Have not filled a Sasquatch tag in 23 years of hunting in Idaho but have come close to smelling like one almost every year! A properly adjusted Fall Restraint Device used in a treestand will allow for hours of uninterrupted sleep and a great view of the backside of a deer or an elk.

CHAD MITCHELL
Outdoor Range Director

Born and raised in Blackfoot Idaho Snake River area. Chad has lways been an avid outdoorsman hunting elk and large game. He got into Archery about 15 years ago for the added challenge. He has loved being involved in the Blackfoot River Bowmen club and enjoys the 3-D shoots. Chad loves to get his family out shooting archery. It is a great family activity. He looks forward to helping BRB make improvements for everyone to enjoy.

GEORGE TRENKLE
INDOOR RANGE DIRECTOR

In 1984 George’s dad turned him loose in the river bottoms with his first compound bow complete with fixed painted brass pins, Easton aluminum arrows and a 3-finger glove. He’s been hooked on archery ever since. George graduated from Blackfoot High school and played college football at Snow College as a defensive end. Years later, after recovering from an injury incurred on his New Zealand mission George joined the Marine Corps where he served as an Electro-Optics Ordnance Instructor at The Basic School in Quantico, Virginia. Now back in Idaho, George is currently serving BRB as the Indoor range director helping to preserve and carry on the culture of archery to the next generation.
