Best attended Broadhead in 20 years!

Posted by admin in Big Game Club News | June 3, 2013

It was the best attended Broadhead in 20 years with 205 shooters on hand for the 2013 CBH State Broadhead Championship on May 25th and 26th at the Tejon Ranch in Lebec, CA. Thank you to everyone that came and had such a great time.

Chad Martin won the Saturday afternoon One-On-One shoot beating 32 other entrants and winning the $100 first prize. The 2013 BGC $10K Drawing was a sellout even before shooting began on Saturday morning and Darick Roney won the big prize in the Saturday evening drawing after being the 250th (and final) ticket drawn from the raffle tumbler. Darick is planning on booking a California American Elk hunt with his winnings! Gary Roney won a hog hunt for selling the winning ticket and Joe Dotterer won two hog hunts in the seller’s drawing. Tom Lerma designed another great shirt to commemorate the 2013 event and almost every shirt was sold.

Per tradition, Barbara Moore and Gary McCain were the official 2013 Broadhead Champions for shooting the highest scores in the female and male non-sight divisions.

Rodney York received a prestigious Lifetime Achievement Award for his many years of work in promoting and preserving archery and bowhunting in California. Doug Meeks picked up a first-of-its-kind plaque to recognize his California Elk Slam! The CBH Big Game Club hog hunt the week before the tournament was incredible with almost everyone getting a hog, and Bret Scott arrowing, TWO including one huge porker!

The weather was fantastic with daytime temperatures in the low 70’s and enough breeze to make shooting interesting. George DuBois and his fellow Mojave Archers members did a fantastic job in laying out and maintaining the 3-D targets for the two-day shoot. Special thanks to the folks at the Tejon Ranch for once again allowing us the use of this incredible property for the third straight year.

The whole weekend was a blast and everyone is looking forward to another great event in 2014!
