The First Bearpaw Kill Tournament in Switzerland!


My “kill tournament year” is now coming to an end. I am thrilled with how many archers and bow hunters have participated my various kill tournaments in; Germany, Romania and Austria this year. For this I would like to take a moment to thank you!

This year, on the 22nd and 23rd of September, together with Thomas Kaufmann from Bearpaw Switzerland and the BSC Widen-Bremgarten, I will organize the

1. Bearpaw Kill Turnament in Switzerland!

I’m excited and looking forward to hosting my first kill tournament in Switzerland. Of course, I hope that many German archers will make a showing and participate this tournament. Finally, we will have a chance to even the score!

In the 2018 Kill Tournament held in Germany, Switzerland won the number one spot in the Nations Cup and pushed Germany off the throne they had been holding for 9 years!

On 22./23. September – Henry Bodnik is coming to Switzerland to set up and help with the 1. Bearpaw-Kill-Turnament in Switzerlandz

Be sure to take advantage of this unique opportunity to get to experience this tournament right here in Switzerland. The Bearpaw Kill tournaments are extremely popular in many countries and extemely unique in the world. For me personally, it is “THE TOURNAMENT” of tournaments, but – as a co-organizer, unfortunately, I can not personally shoot – but you can take the tournament all the more to heart!

Some Details:

  • Realistic hunting distances (The distance to the targets will be fairly close.)
  • Ehere is a very special tournament atmosphere
  • All winners of their individual archery classes will compete at the end – in a final showdown competition for prize money of € 500.-, 300.-, 100.-!
  • Henry Bodnik and Bearpaw Products are giving away a very generous gift table filled with prizes for all participants present at the end of the tournament
  • The tournament is ideal beginners as well as seasoned shooters because of the short hunting distances to the targets – everyone has a good chance of hitting the targets!

From the blog post by Bearpaw Products:


The special hunting lik format of this tournament created by Henry Bodnik attracts more and more archers every year. The shooting positions, as you will see, are reminiscent of the early days of archery. Days when the shooting of 3D animals and animal pictures was still used as practice for actual bow hunting. From these early beginnings, our great sport has emerged. All shots are at a maximum distance of 28 meters and the hunting situations you will find at the various shooting locations come from the bow hunting experiences of Henry Bodnik.
