    I was looking thru the scores from the ibo shoots this year and see that alot of the so called high scorers from local tournaments got their butts handed to them when somebody else is keeping score. I hope this teaches them that other people are watching and you will be caught cheating one day. It makes no sense to me that by cheating on your score makes you a better archer. Only on paper but not when it counts. Wait till you have to go up against someone at a final shoot or a shootout and you do your normal shooting and score nowhere close from the scores you turned in thru the year. You are only embarrasing yourself. How do you know if you are improving or need more practice at shooting or judging yardage by writing down a wrong score.

    Thats all i have to say about that!!!

    Amazing first post

    I happen to score high on local level and shoot down on pro am level at times.:mad: Not bad scores but diffiantly not my best. Local events will have have those pencil pushers. If your so concerned about a shooters score. Go shoot with them. Have you ever shot bad at a pro am level?

    I shot with some of them and they dont even come close to their scores around home. I am talking almost 50 points different when others score them.

    The big events are definately tougher courses and there is always a little more pressure. But sure, some people certainly cheat...just like golf.

    It happens

    Just be sure and try to do what we do. Often ranges around here get the word out and they dont shoot by themsleves. We police are local shoots.

    Im all for shotgun starts and busting groups at all events.

    Some of the guys come at the last minute rush thru the course shoot way up. Then when shootoffs start at the end of the season they dont show up or they blame their bad shooting on the bow like it fell or it needs sighted in etc... I am just glad to see their scores on the ibo site for everybody to see.

    I've got a perfect example of someone "using the magic pencil"...

    Ever shoot all 30 targets and get back to the clubhouse only to find that the "designated" score keeper "forgot" to mark a few? Hey Bowman, have you ever had that happen to you? :laugh:

    People Cheat -- there is no doubt, either it will be for bragging rights or a $3.00 trophy????? During the indoor 3D league (Local Clubs), we had a guy cheating to win a $3 trophy, please explain that one?
