    So now you see what I was talking about. Yardage guessing is not what you thought. But it is a fun sport.

    O yes it is. I shoot one where they had a elk about 50 yards out. Over a small rise. you had to shoot from behind some fallen logs piled you. The rise was a little taller they I thought and the elk farther back. So most every one missed or got a 5. Then there was a 47 yard shoot at a standing deer. It was about 40 feet down and 47 yards out. But the kicker was to hit the 10 or 12 you had to make the shoot with a tree mid way to the target. Miss and hit the tree. Most of the pro shooters did not chance it. Me I 12ed it with my long shot small arrow. But like i told you I have 20 to 30 dozen arrows. So if I lose one no bug deal.

    Pretty good...
    Judging yardage is a challenge for sure. What kills me is when they have open field targets and then you go into the wooded areas, and the opposite. I messes with my sense of distance bigtime...
    I love 3D though, it's a ton of fun.

    awsome glad you had fun......

    I think if you get o.k. at yardage, a really good pair of binos is more important.....

    yup. i had my binos with me. QSA told me to take them. i took his advice. it helped tons on fairly long shots because i couldnt see the 12 ring.

    A lot of times you can't see the 10/11/12 ring because the foamies are so beat up so you should get used to that too...
