The Vegas Shoot is one of the premier archery tournaments in the world. This year 3,767 competitors were divided into 27 divisions and classes.

Crossbow competitors shot three rounds throughout the weekend for a total of 90 arrows. The most points awarded for a single arrow is 10, so the best score possible is 900. (Target distance is 20 yards, no shooting rest is permitted.)

Daniel Zintgraff took top honors shooting an 894, Sammy Closser took second with an 890 and Dylan Burg finished third with a score of 889 (see top photo). All three competitors were shooting the Mission SUB-1 crossbow.

“The guys picked up right where they left off last year,” said Tanya Thurow, category manager for Mission Crossbows. “They’re really demonstrating the accuracy and consistency of our crossbows, and we’re proud to have them on our team.”

The tournament trail now turns to the outdoor target season. ASA and IBO tournaments test shooter’s skills on 3-D targets of various species. These highly competitive tournament circuits tour the country and feature some of the best shooters in the world.
