Iowa Deer Classic
March 6-8, 2020
Des Moines, Iowa
Listed below you will find a list of our divisions, rules, entry fees and payout information.
The Iowa Deer Classic tournament will feature 20 static 3D targets strategically placed in varying distances within the indoor 40 yard range.
Raised At Full Draw is looking to sell one of the most exciting archery events around- the pop up system. Targets pop up in random order and are up for eight to twelve seconds with possible delays in between. Shooters could have multiple targets at one time, no shoot situations and running targets.
While we had fun traveling around setting up 3D shoots, we are focusing on our summer camps and our outdoor retreats. If you or someone you know is interested in purchasing this system please reach out to email@example.com
