    Default 3d practice

    how many of ya take the game of 3d and use it just for practice for hunting or is it a serious commitment for you as a competition?

    I don't shoot a lot of 3D anymore...I prefer to shoot field and indoors. But I don't do it as hunting practice. I do it because I love to shoot archery....as a result it makes me a MUCH better shot when it comes to hunting. I love to hunt but I actually have gotten to the point were I prefer competition and target archery more then hunting.

    Well, I started to enhance my shooting skills for hunting 30-yrs ago..but 3-d to me is different it is a competition. But I try to not let it be a source of irritation, it's my leisure time.

    I don't shoot 3D as much as I used to, but I have never considered it prectice for hunting. As an Eastern hardwoods hunter I'm almost always in a treestand and 3D has NO correleation to this type of hunting. Another thing about the ype of hunting I do is that the only yardage estmation I need make is whether the animal is within 30 yards. If so I put my 25 yard pin on the animal and take my shjot. I consider 3D another target venue where I have to estiamte the distance as accurately as possible, put my own bullseye on the target, and execute the shot. So.......

    I don't consider 3d competition preparing me for hunting. All my hunting is from a tree stand and I have a range finder and know the distance of my shot. Most of my shots are 20yds and closer. Indoor shooting does more for my hunt preparation than a 3 d range. I'm working on the shot not judging distance,
