Rainy weather couldn’t keep 118 bowfishing teams from 23 states from competing in The U.S. Open Bowfishing Championship last weekend at Bass Pro Shops Outdoor World in Bossier City, Louisiana. More than 58,000 pounds of rough fish, or 29 tons, were removed from eight area lakes and the Red River.

The first place team, Pure Shot Outdoors, harvested a total weight of 600.3 pounds and received $25,000 in cash with each member receiving an AMS Bow. The Texas team consisted of Isaac Avery, Longview, Laramy Barber, Sabine and Hunter Graham, Henderson.

“My teammates and I have fished this tournament for three years and have always strived to be at the top. Last Saturday we were able to put the big stringer of fish together for the win. Hard work and determination from all the team put us in the right spot at the right time. Thanks to Bass Pro Shops for hosting a tournament of this magnitude and allowing us to compete in something all bowfisherman love to do,” said Pure Shot Outdoors team captain Isaac Avery.

The U.S. Open Bowfishing Championship is the largest event of its kind in the fastgrowing sport of bowfishing. This year’s event featured the largest competition and biggest prizes in the tournament’s seven-year history. The championship purse included more than $100,000 worth of prizes and giveaways.
