    I want some opinions on scoring a leg hit on a 3D target. After the shoot today, Jen and I stopped for ice cream. While we were there, 2 guys from our club, Jack, and Bert, and one of their friend showed up. We got BS'ing while we waited in line, and Jen mentioned that she missed winning the womens division by 4 points, and that she had a goose egg, that was a leg hit. All 3 of the guys we were talking to said that a leg hit isn't a zero, that they call it a nickel. Any part of the animal is a nickel. I was taught, that a leg hit, below the bodyline, was a zero, and that is the way I have been scoring it since I started shooting.

    Here is the I.B.O. definition on scoring...

    a. Scores will be tabulated as follows:
    i. 11 points - 11 ring or “X” ring centered inside the 10 ring
    ii. 10 points - 10 ring or heart
    iii. 8 points - Vital
    iv. 5 points - Body
    v. 0 points - Miss or arrow not touching body color

    The way I read the IBO rules, is that a leg hit is a 5, being that it is a body colored portion of the deer


    How does everyone else score???

    Anything except horns and hooves is a 5. They aren't body colored.... I guess the eye is a 0 too.....:doh:

    I always shoot for the eye too......................:Cry:

    In standard 3d scoring it's a 5 ...if you score using the THE system it's actually a negative...:tape:

    We have always counted as a five. Of course that five came with a lot of grief to the shooter.

    It seems that JC is correct, I found this on the IBO website,...

    "An arrow embedded in the hoof or horn of an animal, not touching body color,
    is considered a miss and is scored as a zero. Targets with legs of a different
    color than the main body will still be considered as body color for scoring."

    If the shoot was an IBO sanctioned shoot then IBO rules would apply, if not it would be up to the hosting clubs policy.
