    I know the OPA Summit Invitational pays out around $30K for 1st. The Vegas shoot pays a top prize of $46.5K. These two are the biggest payouts that I know of. Keep in mind that the sponsors pretty much match on average.

    That is depending on the amount of sponsors and their guaranteed payout.

    Overall the purses are so small it's not worth it. I mean the one tournament in Frances payout wouldn't even cover airfare.

    Heard that's getting a lot tougher these days. Caught Dave Cousins on bowjunkies youtube and he pretty much told young people considering getting into competitive shooting to pretty much not bother. I really don't agree with him. He is just burnt out IMO
