No worries. Honestly I don't have the $$$ to buy a sight just for bow novice class.

Can I hunt Hunter Class with a slider locked down?

You cannot—both BN and Hunter class have the same requirement—a fixed-pin sight that cannot be moved. Your only option would be one of the Open classes or K45 if you wanted to stay with a adjustable sight.

I just called the ASA office to verify and he said you can shoot a multi/ or single pin adjustable sight as long as it is locked down and is not moved . ( Although you will be at a disadvantage with a single pin) . They said to just make sure your group knows what you are doing and explain beforehand that it is not going to be moved , maybe even show them where it's set at the start . He also told me to tell UTGrad to set it at about 23-24 yards ;\) because that's around the average .

I knew I had heard that somewhere . I told them while I was on the phone that they needed to clarify that in the rules a little better .

Also he said if at anytime it comes out of adjustment , you cannot move it back . You will have to call a break down to go move it and then come back .

Good to know, but curious as to when they changed it. That is not what the National Director and a member of the Competition Committee has said in the past. I'm glad for UTG's sake that I was wrong and you were correct.

I'm not saying that you were wrong . Maybe you could call again and get a different answer , but the guy I talked to was .... Ahh . I forgot his name but its the guy that does all the announcing at the Pro Ams and award presentations .

Great discussion. Bow sights are expensive these days so it would be nice if one can shoot their hunting sight locked down. If Bow Novice maxes at 30 yards than I don't see any problems shooting one pin. 40 yards can get tricky.

I used a CBE Tek Hybrid when I shot B.N. I had 3 pins on it and had the slider part of it locked down. You can indeed have them as long as you don't adjust them. Some guys have target sights with pin housings just for the extra length of the sight bar.

Yeah I was thinking of your sight in particular. The CBE Tek Hybrid is a multi pin slider. If you lock it down its just a multi pin sight. My Ascent is a single pin slider so asides from pin count no difference.
