    Well, I finally got some time to shoot a 3D today. Went to Blackhawk Field Archers in Shirland IL. It's actually the first outdoor 3D I've shot all year. I felt I did pretty well. I didn't shoot great but my yardage was decent and my shots were good most of the time. The course was pretty easy though and I had a good time shooting with a couple friends.

    Glad you got out Chris.
    The owner, manager, and staff at our local archery shop often work on Saturday and Sunday. If they are lucky enough to have a shoot in the area that day, they can shoot, then rush to open the store. I feel sorry for them. They make a living from archery, but can't have fun doing it.
    The opportunuity is seldom available to them.
    Shooting in the store just ain't the same.

    That's pretty good.

    Hey Chris, have you ever shot up in Richmond, IL ? There's a club up there someplace off of RT 31/12 North of Mchenry. Just curious if you know anything about it.

    I'm glad you got to get out and shoot one, Chris. :thumb:

    I haven't shot one all year due to an ankle injury. :Cry:

    I haven't shot there in a long time. That is Midwest Cimmarron. They used to be part of the Midwest Archery Championship group of clubs but I think they dropped out or something.

    The two guys I was with both beat me though. One shot 297 and the other shot 300. It was kind of a strange shoot. It's their classic shoot and which has two running targets. You pull the cord and the animal runs down a wire and you shoot it on the move. I shot 8 on one and a 5 on the other.

    those moving targets can be tough for sure. At our pop-up shoot I just couldn't get the timing right on the moving gator. Shot 8 and 5 on it as well!

    Most shoots I've been to are IBO scoring. That is with the 12 ring centered in the 10 ring. ASA scoring has the 12 ring offset to the inside edge of the 10 ring.

    Scoring:
    Small center ring is 12
    Next ring size up is a 10
    Next larger area is an 8 (this is irregular shaped)
    Rest of body is 5
    Miss is ZERO

    At least that's how all the scoring is at the ones I've been to. Did go to one indoor tourney that had 14 point rings using the ASA style scoring system.

    You can go to Rinehart and they have a downloadeable scoring sheet for their targets. Gives you a good example of scoring rings.
