High Impact Archery 3D Pop-Up Contest

This event’s handicapping was created to level the shooting field between newcomers and experts, women and men. If you can shoot and hit targets, you can win this competition.


The range includes eleven (11) pop-up 3D targets. Every round, the shooter will see 5 targets presented in a random manner. The only target the shooter is guaranteed to see is the running target. Depending on the venue, shot distances vary between 15 and 45 yards.

Shooters try to shoot a score high enough to qualify in the top 32 of all shooters. Only the top 32 are eligible to shoot for the money. A shooter may shoot as many re-qualifications as he or she likes up until approximately noon on Sunday, when 32 shooters begin the finals.


NEW FOR 2018 – The Money Shoot will now be on Sunday

 Shooter may qualify or practice from the opening of the show on Thursday until approximately 1pm on Sunday, when top shooters on the scoreboard will enter the Shoot-Off.
