IBO vs ASA vs UNIVERSAL TARGET SCORING
We have decided to standardize the targets at the range and have all the same scoring type inserts. That will be IBO. New inserts and all New targets will be purchased with the IBO score outline. Click here to learn more https://www.bowhunting.com/blog/2017/05/06/asa-vs-ibo-3d-competition/
