The scenic hills and hollows of rural Calhoun County will serve as the backdrop for the event which is hosted by Mountain Archery Fest, a premier archery tournament provider that organizes events throughout the U.S. for bow hunters and competitive archers.

“The Great Rivers & Routes Tourism Bureau was instrumental in securing this prestigious tournament for southwest Illinois,” Cory Jobe, President/CEO of the Bureau said. “This is another example of the caliber of sporting events that our region is equipped to host with a great variety of venues including outdoor facilities like McCully Heritage Project.”
