Total Archery Challenge
Total Archery Challenge created the best outdoor sporting event in the United States. We combined all the exciting aspects of archery shooting to bring you an unforgettable three-day experience. It’s like we always say “Life… It’s better with a bow.”
Total Archery Challenge events are held in the most scenic venues across the United States, including the top of the Wasatch Mountains in Utah, The Black Hills of South Dakota, the northern woods of Michigan, and many other locations.
Rinehart hosts 3D shoot events nationwide called the R100. The R100 series of 3D shoots are family-friendly events for 3D archers of all ages and skill levels. The R100 has two 50-target courses, African Range and North American range, with daily side events. Each person entered shoots one arrow per target in the specified order. Shooters can shoot individually or in groups, up to 5 members.
The mission of the Scholastic 3-D Archery (S3DA) Program is to foster, educate and guide youth in the areas of indoor target, 3-D and outdoor target archery as well as safe, ethical bowhunting practices. The goal of the S3DA program is to provide archery and bowhunting opportunities for young people in after-school settings as well as with archery-affiliated clubs and businesses in the community. We provide an effective after-school archery program, focusing on Indoor 5-spot, 3-D and Outdoor Target archery and the certification and tools to deliver the instruction to youth. As a result, S3DA expects to see increased participation in 3-D and target archery by youth and parent archers using compound bows and traditional archery equipment while also helping to increase participation at local, state and national archery events. In addition, S3DA expects to help provide a basic understanding and respect for our natural resources, environment and nature, with a special emphasis on the modern wildlife conservation and regulated sport hunting.
ASA 3D Archery
ASA stands for Archery Shooters Association. They are based out of Georgia and host seven tournaments each year – mostly in the southern United States. Both professional and amateur archers take part in the ASA 3D shoots.
An ASA 3C shoot consists of shooting two, 20-target 3D archery courses over two days. Each 3D target features a number of scoring rings designed to imitate the animals vital areas. An arrow that hits outside all scoring rings is worth 5 points. An arrow shot inside the largest ring, but outside all the others, is worth 8 points. The large, circular ring inside the 8-ring is 10 points, while arrows that land inside the small rings within the 10-point area are worth 12 points.
IBO 3D Archery
IBO - International Bowhunting Organization is based in Ohio. IBO produces eight 3D shooting tournaments yearly, including an indoor course and one for traditional archers only. You will find most IBO tournaments are held in the Midwest.
A typical IBO 3D shoot consists of shooting two, 20-target courses over two days. There is no shoot-down. The targets are marked and scored the same as ASA targets, except the only bonus ring is the one in the center of the 10-point area. (That’s the ring ASA doesn’t recognize.) Arrows that hit that ring are worth 11 points.
