The International Bowhunting Organization (IBO) is proud to announce that long time sponsor, Dead Center Archery Products, has agreed to sponsor the IBO Eagle Eye Shoot-Off during the upcoming 2020 season. Dead Center Archery, based in Beavertown, Pennsylvania, is a manufacturer of precision engineered stabilization solutions for hunting and target archery. Dead Center’s President, Todd Reich, states, “We are proud to be given the opportunity to sponsor this event that rewards and promotes a high level of precision shooting and to continue our support of the IBO and Bowhunters.”
The IBO was founded in 1984 as a non-profit, charitable organization, dedicated to protecting Bowhunting rights. The IBO is also the first to establish multi-state 3D archery competitions, first to recognize National Champions in 3D archery and the first to establish a standard set of rules for 3D competition. The IBO uses 3D archery as a fundraiser for their cause and has established the Bowhunter Defense practice range and Eagle Eye Shoot-Off to provide much needed defense funds dedicated to protecting our Bowhunting heritage.
The Dead Center Eagle Eye Shoot-Off is conducted at the IBO World Championship and features qualifying archers from all three legs of the National Championship Triple Crown and World Championship. To qualify, an archer pays $5 for two arrows that are shot at a 1” orange dot placed on a Rinehart Alert Deer target. If the archer hits the dot, they receive a T-Shirt and an invitation to compete in the Dead Center Eagle Eye Shoot-Off. During the shoot-off, 10 Rinehart Alert Deer targets are set with an orange dot in the middle of the 11 ring with 20 archers at a time - two to a target - trying to hit the dot. If an archer hits the dot, they move on to the next round until we have one champion remaining. Each archer that qualifies will have the opportunity to win a grand prize of $1,000, the runner-up receives $500 and third place receives $250.
“Dead Center Archery has demonstrated their commitment to Bowhunters across the country by partnering with the IBO to sponsor this exciting and worthwhile event,” said Bryan J. Marcum, IBO President. “It is a natural fit for a company named ‘Dead Center’ to sponsor such a precision shooting event and we thank them for their willingness to contribute to our cause.”
