Greetings from Black Widow Bows!

We hope everyone is doing okay. It’s been very busy here the last 3 years. We made our 14th Annual Bear Hunt at Squapan Mountain Outfitters this fall in Chapman, Maine. Tony and Lynn Boucher hosted another great camp in the North Maine woods. Mr. Shawn Carter got the big bear in 2020 and repeated again in 2021 and three-peated in 2022. Congratulations on three nice bears Shawn!

Make plans now to join us on the Black Widow Bear Hunt at Squapan Mountain Outfitters in the fall of 2023. Lasting friendships will be made as well as memories that will last a lifetime. The biggest bear of the week taken with a traditional bow will again receive a new Black Widow Bow.

For more information look up Squapan Mountain Outfitters on their website squapan.homestead.com or you can email Tony or his wife Lynn at tljj@live.com or give them a call at (207) 764-7844 (you may need to leave a message and they will get back with you). You can also call and we can get you details of the hunt also, but you will need to book with Tony and Lynn.

We wish you all the best for the rest of 2022 and 2023 and would love to help you begin or continue your journey in traditional archery.

From the entire gang at Black Widow, have a great season.
