Today, we’ve even got two videos for you. The first video is about the Razor Back Kill Shoot, in which the competing archers shot onto a wild boar dummy with broad heads; the second one is about the finals of the Bearpaw Kill Tournament 2013, in which the winner took home 1.000 Euros prize money! And because pictures say more than words, here are the videos right away. Have fun and enjoy the show! We are already looking forward to seeing you next year at the Bearpaw Kill Tournament!
We have just arrived back from the Black Forest and already there’s the first real video from the Bearpaw Kill Tournament. The tournament itself was just awesome! A more detailed report about it will be available within the next few days – but this much should be said: Thank you all very very much that you were there! It was really great with you!
But enough talk – now we wish you much fun with the first impressions of our Kill Tournament:
On Friday, Henry Bodnik and the Bearpaw team were on the way to set up targets for the 5th Bearpaw Kill Tournament. With the active support of Dennis Dobrolowsky, an avid bow hunter from Canada, great, challenging and hunting-simulating shots were set up for the 120 expected participants. We were there with our camera and captured everything in picture and sound. Have fun watching:
The Kill Tournament organized by Bearpaw Products has aroused international attention. The winning bonus of 1,000 Euros for the best instinctive archer attracts many international top shooters to come to Eisenbach on May 4th and 5th and to take part in the competition. The Bearpaw Kill tournament is the first German prize money tournament with a final shooting in traditional archery. In the finals, all shooting situations are especially designed for instinctive archers.
Many nations are represented, promising to make this an interesting tournament. Archers from Germany, Sweden, Ireland, Canada, the Czech Republic, Switzerland, Austria, France and the Netherlands have signed up for this special event.
On this occasion we would like to point out that there are 5 bedrooms still available on short notice due to illness-related cancellations in the archery Hotel Bad. Registrations can be made under the following telephone number: 0049 (0) 7657 471. Information: www.bogensporthotel.de
As a teaser for this great tournament, we would like to show you below once more our film about one of the last Kill Tournaments.
“In this tournament, I create every single shooting position personally,” Henry Bodnik
We live Instinctive Archery!
The Real Kill Shot at the Bearpaw Kill Tournament has a new name.
A new sponsor has discovered his love for our Kill Tournament. Günter Haase, the father of Razzor Back Snacks, is himself an enthusiastic archer and is thrilled of our “Real Kill Shoot” with broadheads. What is the Razzor Back Snack anyway?
“For often long trips abroad, Beef Jerkeys (dried meat) in all their diversity were always a part of our diet. Back home in Germany, this snack, which was with us everywhere and at all times, unfortunately remained unreachable for us.
For us it was now time to create the Razzor Back. It exactly meets with our taste – smoked, sturdy, in one piece.”(Günter Haase).
The Razzor Back Snack is a dried meat of wild boar and has about 60% best protein. According to the motto “From Hunters, for Hunters” this quality jerkey is a high-energy snack that offers “Natural Power” and should be with you in every tournament or when you go bowhunting.
The Razzor Back Kill Shoot takes place during the Bearpaw Kill Tournament in Eisenbach on Saturday afternoon, May 4th. From a treestand, an arrow with broadhead is shot onto a wild boar dummy.
Peppered with the pointed comments of Henry Bodnik, authentic hunting feeling will be created with this near-hunting situation. Head to head, and by the elimination system, the best archer will be determined by their best shot.
We are proud to pepper the first place of the Razzor Back Kill Shoot with a prize money of 300 Euros. Günter Haase has provided this amount for this unique competition in Germany. For the second and third places, there will be Razzor Back Jerkey asa prize.
Günter will also be on hand to present his amazing product and to answer questions.
Meanwhile, more than 120 archers have registered to come together and compete for the title of best instinctive archer and to win the prize money of 1,000 Euros. For the second and third place of the tournament, there are another 500 and 300 Euros as a bonus.
“In this Kill Tournament only instinctive archers can win. The final shooting situations are created by me personally and especially for instinctive archers.” (Henry Bodnik)
(Entitled to participate in the Razzor Back Kill Shoot are only participants of the Bearpaw Kill Tournament)
When I had the new target system introduced to me in the USA during the ATA show, I was enthusiastic about the idea and its durability. I certainly wanted to have it for my personal use at home on my private practice range. After many test shots, I am completely thrilled and satisfied. In my opinion, the new system is a great asset to the training area at home and in sports clubs.
For us it is a “must” to offer this unique target.
Certainly it is no cheap target for small money!
“The Game Changer Target is worth every single Euro!”
Just look at the new episode of Bearpaw News and form an opinion yourselves!
That’s why they are very important to us!
Already from the age of 4, one can begin to introduce children to archery in a playful way. Archery promotes the cross-linking of the two halves of the brain and is a personality-enhancing sport. Wonderful synergy effects that can have a positive effect on the development of our children. The Instinctive Archery is also used when working with very active and lively children.
“Archery is simply great for kids” (Henry Bodnik)
Moreover, it is certainly very enjoyable to shoot bow and arrow with our “kids”, and walk in the footsteps of Robin Hood or the American Natives.

Bearpaw Service and Return:
We from Bearpaw Products like to get to the bottom of things. Therefore, we sent Sandra Diroll and Markus Flach to Christoph Brandes’ Iguana Recording Studios to compare the Whisper String with other commercially available strings. Our technical analysis proved something very interesting: What exactly this is will be explained in detail in our video report. See for yourself how good the Whisper String really is!
To show you the difference between an already quiet Dacron string and the Whisper String, we depicted the audio deflection of the two strings below. For more detailed information, please follow the official Whisper String button in the navigation bar.
The Bodnik Bow Quick Stick was given by Henry to our vice president Carlos and he in turn has volunteered the bow to the Lone Wolf bow collection.
The curator of the Lone Wolf collection Jim Rose, holds possibly one of Europe’s finest private, non commercial collections of traditional bows by bowyers of note.
We are privileged to add the Bearpaw Quick Stick to the Lone Wolf collection. It is certainly a unique and beautiful little bow by one of Europe’s finest bowyers.
Many thanks to Henry Bodnik of Bearpaw. One of the few people that seem able to satisfy Carlos’s discerning and demanding nature. It is of interest to note that Carlos’s two bowyers of choice are both European.
