Bring your bows and come on out! Trust us you won’t want to miss these shoots!

In collaboration with the 10th Anniversary of DeerFest, Raised At Full Draw is offering 2 different archery tournaments for you to participant in!  Raised At Full Draw (RAFD) will be hosting a 20 target 3D Fundraiser Tournament and a 5 target 3D Ultimate Hunter Challenge that features the celebrity archery shoot.  What is Raised At Full Draw?

Raised at Full Draw (RAFD) is a 501c3 non-profit organization designed to promote archery, hunting and outdoor education during their summer bowhunting camps.

Raised At Full Draw’s Tournament will consist of a 20 target 3D static course for $25 (16 and older Men and Women bowhunter division) and $10 for youth.   They also have a 5 target hunting simulated speed course for $10. The top shooters in the Ultimate Hunter Course will shoot against one of the celebrities each day!  Will you be the one to shoot against “T-Bone” or Waddell!?

Onsite registration will be available for both tournaments.  Payouts will be awarded to the 1st-3rd place in Men and Women divisions.  Percentages will be based on total registration dollars received for the event. 

Ultimate Hunter Course will consist of 5 arrows and 5 shots all as fast as possible.  Different shots will occur from a standing position, treestand (harness on), kneeling, down hill slope, and seated position from inside a ground blind.  Time starts when the first arrow is fired, time ends when the last arrow is fired. Targets will be scored 5, 8, 10, 12  (highest score possible 60) fastest time breaks any ties.  

RAFD is teaching the next generation of hunters everything from the basics of bow hunting to the values and ethics that are deeply rooted in our hunting traditions.   

Raised At Full Draw currently offers youth and women’s camps to experience everything that bow hunting has to offer. The goal of these camps is to pass knowledge and techniques on to the next generation, and allow them an opportunity to learn in a safe hands on environment.  An environment where they get to practice immediately the skills they are being taught. In addition, there will be a focus on how to hunt responsibly, effectively and learn all of the other attributes of ethics, morals and values that come along with spending time outdoors. We want the those attending camp to exit as skilled archers, but more importantly we want them to leave with an appreciation for hunting and the outdoors as a whole.

 When RAFD is not hosting camps, they provide the 3D Tournament outreach program to promote who they are, what they are doing and to help raise funds to support their camps.
