Last year, the pandemic forced the Vegas Shoot to downsize and move to a virtual event for the flight and junior divisions. The championships, though, still took place in the now traditional venue at the South Point Hotel, Casino and Spa.
For 2022, the world-famous Vegas Shoot is returning to its normal format. Nearly 3000 archers from around the globe are expected to travel to Sin City and compete for a share of the sport’s largest prize purse on February 4-6.
Here’s everything you need to know about this year’s tournament.
The upcoming edition of the Vegas Shoot will be the 56th in the competition’s long history. We hope you’re as excited as we are to celebrate a return to the festival atmosphere we’re used to.
We’re expecting a prize fund of around $400,000 – with the winner of the compound open championship taking home $50,000.

Introduced in 2020 to give every championship shooter who posts a perfect 300-point day on Friday or Saturday (or both) a chance to win an extra $10,000. It’s back again in 2022.
The greatest opportunity to meet the men and women behind the gear that you shoot on the line, the Vegas Shoot’s famous trade show is back, too, next year.
Home to the Vegas Shoot since 2012 (and through to at least 2023), the South Point Hotel and Casino has a large offering of on-site rooms. We also recommend the Grandview, right next door.
Book early to avoid missing out.
While we’re aware that travel restrictions are changing, we’re hoping that international archers from around the globe will join us in February in Las Vegas.
