Hello, my name is Mike Tichenor. I'm the webmaster for the Deep River Bowmen site. I've been involved in archery since I was a kid (that's August, 1962 in the picture above) but, wasn't seriously involved until 1979 when I moved from Kentucky to Indiana and joined Deep River Bowmen. I began bowhunting and competing in archery events held at the club and other local clubs. I'm currently shooting either a TradTech Titan ILF recurve - 40 lbs for leagues and 3-D w/Easton 2013's; 50 lbs for hunting w/Gold Tip 3555's and Bear Razorhead lights or a Black Widow PMA-II also at 40 and 50 lbs. I also shoot a PSE Laser Magnum, 47lbs w/Easton 2117's used for indoors and am putting together a Hoyt Elan olympic recurve for target shooting.

I am a Lifetime Member and past President for Deep River Bowmen, the NFAA/IFAA (National Field Archery Association/Indiana Field Archery Association), a Level II NFAA/USAA certified coach, and a Lifetime Member of the CBA (Christian Bowhunters of America)

My best shooting accomplishments include: 2000 NFAA/IFAA State Indoor Champion (BHFSL Class), 2000 and 1999 IBO (International Bowhunter Organization) Can-Am Indoor 300 Animal Round National Champion (MCA Class); 1999 NFAA/IFAA State American Round 3rd Place (BHFSL Class), 1999 IFAA Hebron Town Shoot Champion (BHFSL Class), 1999 and 1998 IBA State Broadhead Champion (BHL Class), 1998 IBO World Qualifier Champion (MCA Class). Best hunting accomplishments are an 8-point buck in 2002 scoring 128 7/8 P&Y points and weighing 196 lbs (dressed). In 2012 I recieved DRB's Big Buck Award for a 13-point buck weighing 185 lbs (dressed).
