The Vegas Shoot recently offered the world’s largest indoor purse, with a 2015-projected payout of over $275,000 in cash and prizes. The top Championship Male Freestyle, Alex Wifler, walked away with a record $30,000 check! All Championship archers that shot a score of 900 were guaranteed a prize of $1,000.

The Vegas Shoot introduced a new Young Adult Championship division (Freestyle and Limited Recurve). These new divisions allowed young archers (ages 15–17) to compete for cash prizes on the same Arena floor as the best archers in the World. This brief video and portfolio of pictures from Mathews is like The Hunger Games on steroids.
