Southwest Iowa Bowhunters

                                                                         3D Archery Club


Welcome to the Southwest Iowa Bowhunters!

Our club was organized in the summer of 2009 and our first 3-D Archery Shoot was held on August 1, 2009 at Ross Park in southern Page County. 

We now have a 40 target 3-D archery course consisting of deer, bears, turkeys, and many other game animals, with shooting lanes ranging from 20 to 40 yards.  There is also a target range to sight in your bow and warm up.

Due to popular demand, we are now scoring the 12 ring on all 40 targets.  Our score cards reflect this change.  Check out the Competition Results page to see how everyone did.

There are photos posted below from the trail camera on the tree next to one of the stands.

We even added a NIGHT shoot on Saturday, July 28.  The ladies did exceptionally well, as you can see by the scores posted.

We also added a new game for the July shoot that was very popular:  Frog Practice.

Clay pidgeons are attached to bag targets.  For $5.00 you get 12 shots: 3 each at 20 yards, 30 yards, 35 yards, and 40 yards.  For each pidgeon you break, you get 1, 2, 3, or 4 points, depending on the distance.  The shooter with the highest score at the end wins half the pot!

The club purchased a building in Bedford that all members are able to come shoot anytime they want.  Please see a club member to get a key to get in.   We are looking at putting in a bow press and an arrow saw for members to use as well.

There are seven classes of competition for each shoot:

        >>---->    Bowhunter  (blue stakes)

        >>---->    Traditional  (yellow stakes)

        >>---->    Women  (red stakes)

        >>---->    Youth (ages 13 to 15)  (red stakes)

        >>---->   Cubs 2 (ages 8 to 12)  (yellow stakes)

        >>---->    Cubs 1 (ages 7 and under)  (white stakes)

        >>---->    Open  (silver stakes)

Fee for non-members is $10.00 per event, participants under 16 years of age shoot for free.

Food and beverages are available on site during our shoots.

There is also a primitive campground available for those who want to spend the night.

We look forward to having you join us for a day of fun and competition.
