    Hi I'm new here. My name is Marcy.
    I'm fairly new to archery (2 years) and have been going to local 3D shoots. There is a State qualifier this weekend and i wanted your opinion on which class I should enter, Novice or Womens Bowhunter.
    I know bowhunter has a speed limit of 260, I can slow my bow down to that with heavier arrows but would rather not. I can shoot 280 in novice.

    Sooo, what I was wondering is what would be the benefits to me in shooting either one. I will gladly accept any and all comments and opinions. This is my first season doing 3D and I know I won't be a top finisher but want to give it a heck of a try anyway.:decision:

    thank you very much,
    Marcy-XForce Girl

    I would shoot the novice since your bow is already set up for it.

    thanks for your advice. Much appreciated.
    In novice do I have to shoot with the men or is there a womens class/novice?

    beginner class. you probably shoot hunter class equipment but the distance would be shorter.
