    Default Any advice?

    I'm getting in to 3D archery and target archery, I shot alot before, but I wasn't in tournaments or anthing like that. I hunt archery only because I love archery so much, but I like 3D and target more, so my main focus is, trying to shoot good enough at 3D's and targets. Any tips or advice for me, and I just bought a Hoyt 38 Ultra target bow so if you have any tips for setting it up that would be great Thanks, Kyle

    so what kind of advice do you want? There are several different factors that play into target and 3d tournaments. So can you be more specific?

    Ah, you're worried how well you'll do, to my way of thinking that should never be a reason to not go try something. You'll likely find yardage judgement to be the most difficult part of 3D to master. Go find a local shoot and have fun, generally the shooters are happy to answer your questions. No better way to learn than to give it a try and ask what you don't know about the game. You don't even have to keep a card if you don't want to.

    Archery is supposed to be fun, so compete against yourself. If you have a good time when you shoot, your good enough! If you are looking for a specific score, I really can't give you one. I shoot between 275 and 310 on a 30 target 3D course, my friend shoots between 290-320, not great, but not bad either. We have a good time when we shoot, we do it for fun, so we're good.

    Good luck!
    That look on my face is not concern, its shock at your utter stupidity!

    Check out Redneckarcher.com. It's an adult archer/hunting site that feels like hunt camp.
