That's pretty lame for a compound class isn't it?
I am not familiar with the MAC rules.
I agree with you that those of us that shoot 3-D competition on a regular basis are set up for yardages out to 40 yards (and maybe more) for a "hunter class". We have adapted our equipment and practice for these ranges.
But, I do have to agree with Jefro on one thing. Forcing newcomers to shoot from extended yardages discourages them from attending 3-D shoots. In my opinion, that ain't a good thing.
From my observations, most bowhunters that are attending their first 3-D shoot are set up for 25 to 30 yards max. They most likely are using a fixed pin sight on a bow set-up that is not a speed demon. From what I have seen, most are proficient within their zone.
In my opinion, a practiced target shooter will prevail even if the targets were set at 10 yards.
Just my opinion.
