Question Anyone here ever shot for the IBO World Title

Just wondering if anyone here has ever tried for a Trad World Title? Or if anyone has ever attended the tourny? I'm interested in learning what it takes besides being a great shot to auctually make a run for the title. An example would be what arrows or arrow dia is perfered, is having a long 60+ inch bow a must have, etc. For instance I shoot Victory Vap arrows and love them but they are also very small Dia arrows and I could see in a tight race that they might give up a few points not cutting the line etc. I see compound shooters using very large "Fat Boy" shafts etc, is that something that the trad world also uses at the highest levels? Anyway, just wondering if anyone has any expeience and wanted to hear some info on it all. I work weekends and have Mon-Fri off so I considered trying to focus on maybe going next year and giving it a shot. I don't know how well I would do but it would be fun to try and I know learning fine details in the beginning saves headaches later on. Thanks for any info.

Yes, a bunch of us. TBHer Gap Shooter won the title in the selfbow class. TBHer Skunklady won for the women. Caleb Ballard Won this year. A bunch of us Texans came in the top 10. Bisch, me. Deb. I don't remember them all, but we did pretty good.

This shoot is a blast. Check out IBO Trad World 2011 & 2012. You will find results & rules posted there. If you can shoot a fatter arrow I'd do it. My arrows are teeny tiny and it cost me some points for sure. Just for grins, do a search on here for IBO World Championship for posts and pics from when we went. I think there were about 20 of us in 2011.

Well, It's good to know you folks have a lot of experience and even some winners. I would love to shoot with some of you guys one day and see if I can even hold my own. That any learn as much info as I could. I took Rick Welch's class a few months back and by the end of the first day I was shooting lights out. Since then I have been using his technique and doing pretty well.

I hope to attend more of the trad shoots this coming spring. I was able to get off for the Chester shoot and it was a lot of fun. I ordered a new Bob Lee Ultimate and they auctually brought it to the Chester shoot for me. I ended up finishing in I think 10th place the first day I had the bow, That helped boost my confidence now after attending Ricks course I am a lot better than I was.

The IBO shoot is a blast. I have been the last two years and plan on going again next year. Your equipment does not matter. You just need to be able to put an arrow in the spot you are looking to do well. If you shoot carbon arrows, be prepared for long shots all weekend. It is a tough setup, but it should be because it is a "world Champoinship".

Max distance in the carbon classes is 30yds (+10%, so 33yds). If you make the top ten after the first two days you get to shoot on the last day. 90% of the shots will be 25yds or longer.

Scorewise, you need to be able to average about 8.5pts per target to have a chance. The scoring is 11,10,8,5,0.

Sounds good. If nothing else it might push me to get better.

It is a blast even if you cannot win. They have 2 competitions in the same weekend:

1) The Hunter Challenge is a 25 target course and usually a really good setup with awards for the top 2 in each class.

2) The IBO World Championship 20 targets Friday, 20 targets Sat, and (if you make the top 10) 20 targets Sun. Three different courses. You never shoot the same target twice.

Tied to the Hunter Challenge is the 3Rivers Shootdown on Sat night. They take the top 32 scores from the Hunter Challenge and have a single elimination bracket (5 targets per round). Last man standing wins.

Then there is the Team Shoot. They take all the ladies and make them team captains. The ladies than draw mens names out of a hat to make up their teams. The teams than shoot against each other until there is only one team left as the champion.

They also have a long distance shoot and a dot shoot that are like novelty shoots. There is enough there to keep you very busy and worn out all weekend!

I guess you can tell I had a great time up there, huh?

I have shot the original IBO World Money shoot 5 times but not the Traditional Worlds. Either way I always had a blast but a totally different environment and atmosphere.

Well Terry same people shoot both. If the target distance is the same I am sure the scores are about the same. I would like to attend the other shoot also but if I have to qualify I will probably be out even though I ended up 8th in 2012 at the IBO all Trad. It is a must if you can make it happen. Arvin

They didn't have both when I was shooting. Even if you have to qualify you just have to be in the top 20 in your class at the qualifying even and be or become an IBO member. It wasn't that big of a deal.

It's a blast and seeing that caliber of shooters all in the same place is great! There's some salty shooters here in Texas, and several with that world buckle, come to the invitational

So just to make sure. Anyone can show up and shoot for a world title? No qualification needed?

Sounds great. From reading above it sounds like an amazing event to attend. I'm going to make plans to attend this coming year.

It used to be that in order to shoot the IBO World shoot (money shoot) you had to be a member and qualify at an IBO World qualifier shoot.

With the addition of the IBO Trad World I am not sure that if those rules have changed.

If you are wanting to go to the Trad World in Indiana then yes, you can just show up and shoot.
