The hardest part about your first is going. Walk up to the table, introduce yourself and I bet they'll bend over backwards to help and answer any question you have. If your by yourself most places will even set you up with a few guys to tag along with just to help you out.

to 3d shoots. Post up

No question to hard and none to stupid, most of us here already have already ask it

Hardest part for me is judging distances up hills

Good luck shooting it is a ton of fun once you get into it

Shooting across "valleys" messes with me.

Heck , I've been known to kill them hills with all the direct hits on the otherside of many 3D targets at all the local shoots here in west-central Iowa !

There were many strip mines , as they were mining , hauling and salvaging all that aluminum in them hills !

I just love carbon , stop all the mining !

That I have never claimed to be a great archer , just a guy who likes archery , enjoys many things in life and am not tied down to being the best , as it's the whole picture in archery not just shooting targets alone or such , as life's too short to worry about numbers or scores !

Now you know and you are !
