    I don't change anything for 3D, other than I don't use my riser mounted quiver. I'm not a serious 3D shooter. I only go to practice ranging deer by eye and to get some practice when I'm not hunting. All the pro's I've seen shoot use a different bow for 3D.

    Hey guys just joined. I know here they usually have the shoots broken down into divisions. The divisions usually include pro, hunter, and team. I know in the hunter which is what I shoot in your stabilizer can't be over 12" and things like that. I hope this helps.

    Default hunting bow

    I would venture to say, most people use their hunting bow. There are a lot of traditional archers out there also. They get to shoot from a different position, usually closer. Some of the shoots i have been to will have a targets frrom 3 to 80 yards. The majority of the targets will be 15 to 50 yards.

    Yes you can use your hunting in fact I would recommend it starting out. Alot of people use theirs. You can use fixed pins. I think that there is a recurve class but I am not sure.
    It's is broke down into classes I don't know if you shoot ASA but I can give you a lil info on BOw Novice
    Fixed Pins No Magnification
    12 or less stabilizer
    280 FPS Speed Limit
    30 Yard Max Distance
    All Distance Known

    For the Hunter Class
    Same rules I can't remember if the distance is 30, 35, 40 off the top of my head but it is half known and the other half you have to judge yardage.
    If you want to know about another class I will be more than happy to tell you.
