    I was looking at the IBO rules and I'm confused again!

    Level 3 HC

    Level 4 AHC

    is the only difference, besides HAVING to move up a class, the vanes on the arrows?

    If I have 4" vanes will I be in the level 3 HC??
    (for the guys that know my set up)

    I was in MBR last year I think due to my vanes...

    CBE sight

    could a person use a CBE type sight with four pins on the scope housing. It would be "fixed" or locked in place so would that be legal? thanks, Kevin

    IBO Rule change

    C. Level Three—Entry Level Adult Classes—Trophy Awards-Monetary Awards (If
    Offered) At Random
    1. Hunter Class (HC)
    A compound, recurve, or longbow shot with or without sights. A sight shall have no more
    than four fixed, cross hair, or circle style pins without lens or magnification. If circle style
    pins are used, all circles must be the same size. A sight may have a rear aperture (i.e., peep
    sight or fixed rifle type sight). Note rule change (III.C.6) concerning peep sights. Sights
    may not be adjusted after entering the shooting course. Arrows must have screw-in points
    and at least three (3) feathers or vanes no less than two (2) inches long (measured
    minimum 1.75 inches).
    Only one stabilizer may be used. The stabilizer shall be no more
    than 12 inches long, and extend no more than 12 inches from the point of attachment to the
    riser of the bow. (For the purposes of this rule, any device adding length or weight to the
    stabilizer shall be considered part of the stabilizer and shall be subject to the 12-inch rule.)
    Un-weighted vibration dampeners are not considered to be stabilizers; however, unweighted
    vibration dampeners attached to the stabilizer are measured as a part of the
    12
    stabilizer and are subject to the 12-inch rule above. Equipment in this class may be shot
    with finger tab, shooting glove or release. HC archers shoot from the yellow stake.
    If an archer wins more than once in HC at a qualifying event for Shooter of the Year, or
    wins either the National Championship or World Championship during any one IBO
    shooting year, that archer must advance to another class for the entire duration of the
    following IBO shooting year. HF, FHC, & SHC ALL REFER TO HC STANDARDS
    FOR EQUIPMENT
