Default New to site

Hello guys and gals, I'm new to the site. Been shooting bow since I was about 13 been hunting for about 7 years now. Been thinking about getting into my first 3D tournaments but not quite sure what to expect. Any tips, tricks, or know how's to get me started in competition shooting would be greatly appreciated. Don't claim to be a bow guru, just know I can shoot.

Default Welcome?

Not sure I have earned a place to say welcome as this is also my first post, but to attempt an answer at your question. What to expect? You can expect to meet a ton of great people who like to have a good time. There will be some who are pretty serious about the sport, but overall, just regular Joes out doing what they love, shooting bows.

Tips and Tricks. The best tip you can get is the age old practice, practice, practice. However, what you really will need to concentrate on is judging yardage. In the "old days" (15-20 years ago) if you could judge yardage within 3-4 yards you'd fair pretty well at a shoot. Now days, with ASA targets and such, if you are looking to climb the ranks you have to be pretty much spot on with your judgement.

In my book shear knowledge will give you the right to speak. I love to shoot also have a 12 year old who wants to shoot everyday. I usually take things pretty serious when it comes to competition but never a poor sport. My goal is to break into the sport of comp shooting and see how I do. I guess I'm one of those guys who like to think I'm pretty good at what I do and always strive to get better. Thanks for the input.

Are you going with people you know? Alone?

If you are going alone, it is usually pretty easy to join a small group and meet new people. It is more fun shooting with others (for me anyway).

Have fun! Don't be too serious about it!
