Went to haags ended up shooting a 308 . 30 target ASA rules. That is the best I've ever shot and it's amazing how much no snow on the targets and warmer weather helps with your score lol . The guy I was paired up with shot a 280 .

Caution: They are addicting. I shot my best score ever at an ASA sanctioned shoot last weekend in Florida. Shot 2 up on first day and was way down in the standings...barely top 20. Day 2 was a different story...shot 16 up and finished 18 up overall....and finished 3rd place. First ASA Pro/Am podium finish and only my 2nd big ASA shoot.

Congrats !! What class were you shooting in ? I'm thinking of going to Kentucky this year as well as doing the state ASA stuff . I'm just going to shoot bow novice since this is my first year shooting competitively .

Bow Novice is a super competitive class. There are ASA shooters that have been shooting on ASA level tournaments for 11+ yrs that still shoot that class. They have a $300 per year limit on winnings...if you win over $300 per yr you are suppose to move out of the class. BUT...ASA has a loop hole in how it does it. I think that if you ever win out of it, that you shouldn't be allowed to go back to it after a year is up. Yet I've noticed guys doing it quite often. The guy that won Bow Novice in Florida...he has shot ASA tourneys for several years...he's shot in Open C, and Hunter class...and has shot Bow Novice the last few yrs. He shoots a couple ASA's a year...just enough to not win out of the class...and every year, he goes back to Bow Novice. I think it should be that once you win over X amount of dollars...that you're out of it for good. That's how I plan on doing it.

I've shot bows a while and dabbled in local shoots but never competed in ASA level tournaments until July 2012...we shot the state shoot and then went to the Classic in August. I never thought we were ready for the ASA level of competition. It is fun though!! I hope to try and win out of bow novice class and not look back...go into either K45 or Hunter class next and stay there til I by some miracle, win out of those. Kentucky will be our next shoot as well. Maybe see ya up there or at some of these local shoots.

There is way to many people shooting bow novice that don't belong in there.
