New to 3D What to expect?
Well I have love to hunt with my bow(s) compound and recurve. I have never shot in a tournament. I have no idea what to expect or what to really bring. I know it sounds silly to you vets of this sport. So, any ideas advise clue or whatever. I'm sure this thread has been asked before but I'm new to this stuff as well. Forgive me.. Newbie..

There seems to be alot of Okies around here so they might tell you a few of the local things you might come across.
Expect to see shots from really close yardage all the way out to the class maximum of 35-60 yards depending on what equipment you are shooting and your experience. These shots could require you to be in different positions (kneeling, sitting, standing, etc) and shooting in different settings (uphill, downhill, open, wooded, across water, and all kinds of combinations). Either take a buddy with you or ask to go with a group that is of similar equipment and skill level as you, they will help to teach you and will make it more fun.
As for what to bring: binoculars (check regs of shooting body), plenty of arrows, arrow lube, an arrow puller might be handy, maybe some bug spray, some extra nocks, extra target points (not broadheads), maybe an extra release.
Be prepared to become addicted to it. 3D shooting is fun and challenging and most of us that do it will try to find shoots all over the place to keep us shooting as much as we can afford to.

I dont look at a 3-D shoot as a tournament-I look at it as friends just having a good time and slinging arrows. I turn in the score card about half the time and then it is only so they have my name and address so they can send me info on when their future shoots are going to be. Just go and have a good time but one word of caution-it is extremely addictive!!!
