The Benefits of 3D to Hunters

The perception has always been that you are either a Hunter or a Tournament Archer, fact is …… attending 3D Tournaments will make you a better hunter. Join us at the 2017 3Di Triple Crown in one of the New and or dedicated Hunter Classes !!
( You can find a breakdown of the Classes below )

So drag a Bow Hunting buddy to a tournament …. At the next one, we guarantee he’ll drag you !!

Initially, bow hunter education was the primary focus of the IBO / ABO and 3Di.
This enabled them to develop a series of State / National and International 3-D Tournaments.
Our mission in 2017 will be to get these hunter classes introduced to the wider Bow hunting community, including but not limited to compound bow hunters / Crossbow and Longbow archers,

If you are a bow hunter / a recreational archer / have a competitive nature, or would just like the opportunity to match your skills against some of the best bowhunters out there …… drop by and see what we are about.
And if you just enjoy having fun, like we do, a day of Archery fun with like minded friends.
