One of the best ways to show your archery talents is to participate in the PSE Skills Challenge.  Pretty simple game here...hit the target in the right spot at the right time, win the cash payout and other prizes including a Flagship PSE Bow. 

You can purchase shots during registration or at the event.

The top 10 shooters are guaranteed a prize...

The top 3 shooters will split the cash pool...50% for 1st, 30% for 2nd and 20% for 3rd place.

The remaining 7 shooters in the top 10 are guaranteed a prize from our sponsors (MINIMUM prize value is $50)

Rules & Directions...

1.  No, participants cannot get early access to practice shooting at the targets.

2. Yes, rangefinders are allowed.

3. There will be three shooting lanes with the same distance and target at the end of each lane.  Each round will have a longer distance shot and / or a smaller scoring ring you must hit.

4. You can only shoot the number of shots you have purchased...if you miss a shot and have more tickets, you can continue in the current round and progress further until you are out of available shots.   

5.  The final three shooters will shoot three arrows at their target...score totals will determine place ranking.  In case of a tie, the shooting cones will be moved 15 yards further back and a rematch will occur to break the tie.  

But wait, there's more...

Two random shooters will be chosen from skills challenge tickets to shoot against one of our staff for the chance at a Flagship PSE Bow.  Be the top shooter after two arrows...NEW BOW DAY!  In case of a tie, the shooting cones will be moved 15 yards further back and a rematch will occur to break the tie.  






Thanks to our generous sponsors, Hike To Hunt Archery Challenge is filled with prizes drawn throughout each day.  You could be on the course slaying a foam buck when you receive a text stating you have won a great prize!  Each afternoon, we draw even bigger prizes during the live raffle.  Prizes range from $10 to $500...not every raffle ticket will draw a prize.

Raffle tickets are included with some event passes.  You can also purchase additional tickets during registration or at the event.

* Each Participant may win a maximum of two prizes per event.




Many of the sponsors that set up booths have their own free contests and raffles with chances at plenty of awesome gear.   Some events even have a free sponsor-provided dinner!  Please make sure you stop by each booth and see what they have to offer.
