Reading Archery will be hosting the first shoot for the Bowhunter 3D league.

Attachment 15338

Bowhunter 3D will promote a more ethical scoring system over the traditional 3-D target scoring. How many times on a 3-D course have you heard “I scored a 5. Well at least I hit foam!” The traditional 3-D scoring system typically assigns scores of 12, 10, 8, 5, and 0 for missing the target. This, in essence, “rewards” the shooter with a score of 5 for taking an unethical “wound shot” at a target. The Bowhunter 3-D 12, 10, 8, 0, -5 scoring system would assign a score of negative 5 for any non vital body shot, discouraging shots that may wound an animal in a real life situation. We are hoping that the new scoring system will encourage shooters to practice their skills, as well as promote ethical hunting practices.
