About Us

The Bowman County Pioneer is the official newspaper of Bowman County and the cities of Bowman, Scranton, Rhame and Gascoyne in southwestern North Dakota.

Our weekly coverage focuses on all aspects of local community life, events, government, business and sports. We also cover major events as they occur regionally.

We were a winner of several 2014 Better Newspaper Contest Awards from the North Dakota Newspaper Association.

The Bowman County Pioneer was established in Bowman in 1907. Today, our circulation is approximately 1,200 copies.

Our print edition is available on newsstands and for subscribers every Friday. Our website, bowmanextra.com, is updated throughout the week with breaking news and news coverage as it occurs.
