Can someone give me a rundown on the 3D Archery Shoots? Basic info like what's the cost to participate, targets, ranges, etc. I've done some trading and fixing and will have a couple bows for the guys from my youth group for next season.

Noticed a post about 3D and that piqued my interest, thought it may pique their's as well. Give them some competitive action other than shooting at a bag in the back yard, of course we will start there!

Most clubs charge $10-$15 to shoot and most of the time there will be 20-30 targets—25 is pretty much the norm. As far as distance ranges go, most clubs around here go by ASA Rules. There are many classes available from kids (15 yard max), Women's Hunter (30yd max), Men's Hunter(40 yard max), Bow Novice(30 yard max), Known 45(45 yard max), and the Open Classes A,B and C (45, 45 and 40 yard max) or if you just want to shoot for fun you can shoot the "fun class" from any of the 6 stakes you want (15, 20, 25, 30, 40 and 45 yard max) to just get your feet wet.

There will be two different sides—a known yardage side and unknown yardage side. You can use your own rangefinder on the known targets if you would like(they will be pre-ranged and marked for you if you dont mind trusting someone else's range finder), but on the unknown side nothing maybe can used or discussed about the yardage.

As far as scoring, here is a good video on the scoring basics. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_JmMOTx_lmw
The targets most everyone uses are McKenzie and Rhinehart, but mostly Mckenzie with a mixture of deer, antelope, bears and pigs. Here is a video of scoring on Mckenzie targets. However, the, rules have changed for this year...14's no longer count and only the lower 12's count, UNLESS, the shooter calls the upper 12 before the shot and the very center ring (11) is never in play on ASA shoots. If any part of the arrow touches the line then the shooter is awarded the higher point value.

Alot of clubs put their shoot info on this website http://www.3dshoots.com . Old Hickory Bowmen's Club will have their first shoot this Sunday if you want to come out and check it out. Regardless of where you shoot it is a great time, with fun to be had with like-minded folks, and it helps stay in practice judging yardage and form for deer season.

If you have any further questions feel free to ask.

Great point b2b, most club shoots are this way....very casual and relaxed—no big groups watching everything you do.

Eweisner...there is a shoot at New Vision on Feb. 9th in Westmoreland. Its pretty relaxed there and its targets are set up along a path in the woods. Most people just come to shoot for fun! Cost is $10. They don't have the different classes...just a group of guys having a great time!
