    Default Rules

    Hello, I am new to the forum, and just a few years back into archery hunting and I am interested in getting into some competitive shooting sports. I just purchased a new Martin Moab 60# bow, and I am wondering if this bow set up for hunting can be used in any events? Where can I find info. as far as rules for various types of events. I live in Washington State, and I have my own basic 40 yard target range set up, but would love to get into 3D shooting. Thank you for your help.

    I'm using that very bow for hunting and 3D (ibo hunter class). It will work fine for that. If you're wanting to set one up for the Pro classes there are better choices out there.

    I hunt and shoot a little 3-D. My theory is, if I start paying attention to rules, I have less fun.
