The 7th Kill Tournament in Eisenbach (Black Forest) Was a Huge Success

With the Kill Tournament, Henry Bodnik initiated a type of competition which is becoming more and more popular. This year more than 140 archers followed his invitation to take up this unusal challenge.
At Henry Bodnik’s Kill Tournament, only hits in the kill zone of the 3D-targets count for credits. All body hits earn negative credits. However, all the targets are within a maximum range of 28 meters. At this tournament, every single shot is selected by Henry Bodnik himself.
“I can realize all of the ideas in my head. Here, every single shot is exactly the way I like it – custom-made for instinctive archers, so to say! I love every single shot. Shooting positions are inspired by the experiences I collected on my trips to the wilderness of Canada and the US.”
(Henry Bodnik)

Pinpoint Shootings technique and well-chosen materials are of great importance. There is no space for fast arrows at this tournament.
This tournament is about hitting to the point!
