I don't know if there was a limit on how many you could buy...but they were $1 each. I don't exactly see how that's going to play out to be honest with you. These local shoots are all based on the honor system anyway. Without any range officials present, and not mixing groups up...anybody with a pencil and eraser can pencil whip their way into first. Who's to say that people aren't already going out and shooting targets 2+ times and taking the best scoring arrow of the two and writing it down??

That's why I don't shoot for a trophy in the local shoots....I like to shoot against myself. I wish they had a "fun" class...where you can just go pay $5-$7.50 and shoot the course and not have anything to win. They pay $15 to shoot for trophy...why not have an option to just pay half of that to go shoot and not be in contention to "win" anything?

I wish Eagle's Wings was still having shoots too!! Was ALWAYS a great shoot up there. The remaining local shoots (that I know about) will only let you shoot a discounted fun round AFTER you have shot a round for score/trophy.

$15 is cheap fun. I will pay the $15 and shoot for fun anyway. Where else can you have this much fun for such a cheap price.

A lot of places :-) I can shoot for fun in the backyard for free. And have a dang good dinner at Texas Roadhouse for $15. Archery is anything but cheap fun. Every shoot I go to is $30 for my wife and I. All to shoot 20 targets and it takes about an hour to do.

Shoot all 8 shoots from Jan - Aug and that $15 each grows to $240 just at one location. Shoot two or three places a month and now we are at $720 in just entry fees for the season. That's a new bow...or rifle...or a good hunting lease per yr \:\) That's not counting the "have to have" gadgets you will buy to play the game (new releases, trying different arrows, etc). Or travel/hotel costs if you shoot any bigger shoots.

I'm actually weighing the balances between participation in local 3D shoots and just buying my own 3D range and setting it up on my place. These other local shoots have an average of 80 shooters per shoot...sometimes a lot more. 80 shooters x 8 shoots a yr @ $15 per person = practically paying for all your targets in one season. Not bad for one weekend a month.
