“Battle of the Bows” Now at Petersen’s Bowhunting

Battle of Bows

NEW YORK, NY (Ammoland.Com) – As bowhunters start fine-tuning their shot and prepping their equipment for the fall hunting season, Petersen’s Bowhunting’s 2nd Annual Battle of the Bows presented by Realtree is here to build the anticipation even more.

The online “bracket” challenge format is similar to the NCAA Basketball Tournament bracket — with a few twists. Voting starts on Wednesday, August 5 until a champion is crowned on Friday, September 3 at 12 noon EDT. Vote now: http://www.bowhuntingmag.com/battle-of-the-bows/

Here’s how it works:

There are 32 bows in four regions or categories (16 compounds and 16 crossbows) with five voting rounds and prizes awarded after each round. The winning bow of each voting matchup will proceed to the next round, until the FINAL FOUR is reached, and then an eventual winner.

Similar to the hugely successful G&A Madness promotion, where almost 1 million votes were tallied this spring at the Guns & Ammo website, bowhunting and archery enthusiasts will be voting for their favorite compounds and crossbows non-stop over the course of the 5-week “tournament” and registering to win great sponsor prizes from Realtree, Carbon Express broadheads, October Mountain Products bow cases, Browning Trail Cameras and Slash Arrows.

Fans of Petersen’s Bowhunting, Bowhunter, North American Whitetail, Petersen’s Hunting, Game & Fish, Outdoor Channel and Sportsman Channel all know that bowhunting season can’t begin without crowning a champion in the Battle of the Bows! Last year, 425,000 votes were cast to determine America’s favorite compound bows and crossbows – with Parker being crowned champion!

“Our hunting websites continues to experience tremendous growth – not only from the engaging content, but also the fun promotions that incorporate the brands of our valued sponsors and bow manufacturers,” stated David Grant, VP Digital Sales. “We know that bowhunters and archery enthusiasts have their favorite bows and want their voices to be heard – Battle of the Bows gives them that platform to vote on any device, along with a chance to win some great prizes.”
