Who We Are

SCI’s Mid-Atlantic Bowhunters Chapter is an active group of Sportsmen and women who embrace hunting as a key to effective wildlife conservation


MABC was founded by a group of passionate bowhunters who blazed new trails and helped further bowhunting’s place in SCI and the mainstream hunting world.  With hunting firmly in our DNA we continue to embrace all sportsmen and women who share our passion and have evolved into a true “multiple-method” chapter.

“If you love adventure, you’re welcome here.”

“Curious about dabbling in a new hunting method?  We can help you begin the journey.”

ORIGINS AND THE TRAIL BLAZED

Today,  we are proud  to be a true multiple hunting methods chapter.  Our members enjoy the now widely-accepted use of bows, crossbows, and muzzleloaders in addition to long-guns.  But it wasn’t always that way. Even at the turn of the 21st century bowhunters struggled for support from outfitters and  hunting organizations. Most outfitters did not understand what the sport required and wanted to avoid any modifications to how they conducted operations. As a result, in 2008 co-founders Ken Sardegna and Brian Vanderhoof took on the challenge of starting SCI’s Mid-Atlantic Bowhunters Chapter.

Around the same time, there began an “all out push” from a broader group within SCI to promote bowhunting. This, combined with the explosion of vastly more effective bowhunting equipment and the growing number of outdoor shows to market them, caused the hunting world to take notice. Bowhunting was finally gaining a foothold on the map in the mainstream market.
