Default Going to shoot my first.

I want to know what would be the number of arrows to bring to a 30 target event?

I'd bring 3 sets numbered 1-3, in case someone takes out one of your arrows, or a lost vane, or any other mishap. An arrow weighs less than an oz.

It depends on if I am shooting alum. or carbon. Usually 4 carbons and 6 alums. Things happen like busted nocks or vanes coming off or shot through.

If you're good you only need one to shoot and one spare in case somebody decides they don't like your nock color--or you shoot last. I have 3 tubes in my quiver so I usually carry 3.

Elkslayer4x5, what do you mean by "3 sets"?

"3 sets" = 9 arrows total, numberd 1,2,3....... used in animal rounds as each # arrow is scored depending on what # it has on it. 1 in spot is worth more then your 3rd try at it..

Not that good to just take 3 like you Bfisher I take 6 to 9 depending on How many targets...
Oregon greater safari is 2 shots on 60 3D's (2day event) Packed 8 turned out, only neeed 2 so maybe I can Bf
