Bowhunters Hall of Fame

Special Induction of Rollin A. Bohning into the Bowhunters Hall of Fame

Friday night was a special evening at the 'Top of the Riv' with the gathering of archers and the Industry. It was not only an opportunity for archers to see friends and meeting new archers from all across the United States and some from other countries, but also the opportunity to join with the Industry to honor a great man, Rollin A. Bohning, founder of The Bohning Company, who had contributed so much to modern archery with his knowledge of chemical engineering to create an arrow point adhesive and design of fine archery products. Rollin was inducted into the Bowhunters Hall of Fame® under Category B — Excellence in the Design and Manufacturing of Archery Equipment.

Rollin A. Bohning founded The Bohning Company in 1946 created many products that benefited the archery and bowhunting community ever since. He worked with Industry greats such as Doug Easton, Fred Bear and many others. Rollin Bohning passed away in 1991, but he will always be remembered for all that he has done for archery.

See Rollin's biography in the Hall of Fame section.
