Meet Our Editorial Team
BOW & ARROW HUNTINGâ€™S knowledgeable writing staff is led by editor Joe Bell, also the author ofÂ Technical Bowhunting, a highly acclaimed, best-selling book on equipment setup, bow tuning, shooting form, and specialized hunting advice. He is also the past associate editor of Petersenâ€™s Hunting and Bowhunting publications.
Renowned for his bowhunting accomplishments, Bell has taken trophy-size big game in many parts of the nation and Canada, with many of them qualifying for the prestigious Pope & Young Record Book. His archery-hunting career spans 25 years.
However, he is probably best known for his â€œtinkeringâ€ ability and meticulous testing and reviewing of archery and bowhunting gear. This talent has aligned him with many product designers, and today he serves as a consultant for many archery suppliers and manufacturers. Bell resides in northern Arizona with his wife and two daughters.
Chuck Adams, the best-known bowhunter in the world, is the magazineâ€™s very own deer editor. And Ted Nugent, who is considered huntingâ€™s most visible spokesperson, writes a regular column. Other well-respected staff members include Tim Strickland (Olympic archery coach), Denny Sturgis (traditional-equipment archer & expert), Judd Cooney (back-page humor, legendary bowhunter), Lisa Price (renowned female writer and longtime bowhunting enthusiast) and many others.
