    Yesterday I went and signed up for 5 spot league that starts March 25th and I found out that the two local 3D ranges are CLOSED !

    One club went bankrupt and the other lost their right to use the property because the owner passed away and the property is for sale by the owner's family... The owner's family kicked the club out.

    Holy cow, talk about a bomb being dropped... And then Illinois looses the game last night in the first round.
    :cool:

    We don't have problems with turnout. We do have problems with people that run their mouths though. Our group lost an excellent piece of hunting property this past season because somebody in our group climbed into a stand that didn't belong to him and then the stand owner came out and there was a confrontation. Needless to say the next weekend we went out the property was gated off...

    There are other 3D's around but not nearly as good and a much further drive away.

    We'll see how things go.

    Looks like you need to buy some property :noidea: :biggrin1:
    Sorry to hear that, I know I would never be able to shoot if I didn't have a range within 10 miles

    I have a decent range in my yard but the 3D I'll definitely miss.
    The nearest 3D range is now about 60 miles away...

    We'll see what happens. There is a lot of land out here and maybe the club will find something. I'm just disappointed. I really enjoy the 3D shoots around here.

    idea

    One thing you may want to try,check your local archery pro,the one near me had leased 200 ac. to hunt on with 5 other archer's ,then he opened 25 to hold 3-d & leased & additional 100 & also hold' 5-spot in his shop.
    i never joined but i was ask alot.
    also im in a hunt club that has 2200ac.35 member's only 6 bow hunt /been in it for 25year's president ask me several time's if i wanted to start a 3-d club no problem they would help & pay for any thing i need to bring money in for the club.
    been there,done that dont want the headache-been left 2 people pulling target's,but it may be something to check-out,maybe a local huntclub would let you hold shoot's to raise money for them.:biggrin1:

    umm dreaming got her in trouble..........:biggrin1:
     
  16. i went to my clud 3d shoot today.there was 243 people showed up so at $15.00 a head that is $3,645.00 and then there are the shirts and hats we sell and the membership fee of $15.00 i would say there was about 50 new member's so that is another $750.00 and it cost $3000.00 to open a range if you have property to put it on.so that one shoot paid for all the targets and the rest of the year is money in your pocket,or the clubs pocket.it depends on who bought the targets.we had people drive from oaklaoma and texas to shoot in our 3d shoot today.it was FUN :peace:

    where in the name of god are you going to find 30 targets for $3000.....

    My club just purchaced 30 targets, we have a club member who is a dealer, he gave us his cost, no shipping, no tax, and it cost us $7500.....

    so you let me know what quality targets you can buy for 3000 and i will gladly buy them.....:noidea:
