Date: March 14, 2020
Time: 7:00 am  to  4:00 pm

Deer season is over, but don’t put those bows up just yet! You’ve got a lot of cash to win! We’ve revamped the tournament this year to be an all day event for the whole family.

More targets, more money, more prizes and more fun!

***We’re giving away over $5,000 in GUARANTEED CASH PAYOUTS!***

Date: March 14th, 2020

Time: Registration open from 7am-10:30am to shoot the course, but this is an all-day event that will end around 4-5pm.

*Due to length of the course, the time commitment (3.5 to 4hrs), and scheduled shooting events in the afternoon we cannot allow anyone start the course after 10:45am.*

Format: Single 30 target course that meanders through the property and begins and ends near the Practice Range. A combination of standard ASA style targets and 15 hunting situation targets including shooting from ground blinds, sitting down, tree stands, up and down hill shots, and with simulated elevation for safety. Known yardage, hunting equipment only. See Rules below for all other inquiries.

Scoring: ASA style scoring: 0s, 5s, 10s, and 12s only. Upper 12s in play but must be called. There will be a mulligan target on the course that may only be used to replace your score on the moving target. Top 5 shooters in each money class will be entered into a shootdown at 3:30pm. 14s will be in play for the shootdown only.

Location: Pollock, LA – CENLA Bowbenders Archery Club

Directions: Approximately 1/4mi north of Dollar General in Pollock, LA (9680 Hwy 165 Pollock, LA 71467). There will be many signs at the entrance on the day of the event.

*Make sure your GPS does not take you to Grayson, LA or Kinder, LA *
