    We got no pics of KC and I shooting though...it is hard to do when one of us must chase the toddler around! Hopefully my score will be good enough to make the shoot-off tomorrow and we will get some pictures then. Pink is also going to shoot another qualifier round as well....

    I was waiting for a "Pink after the shoot", with bloodshot eyes and a noticeable bad attitude...:laugh:

    Nice kids you have. It's great that you have them in the sport. They look like they are taking it all in. Awsome.

    Pink shot ok, but she will shoot much better tomorrow...just nervous since we hadn't done that before. My hands were shaking pretty bad during my practice round too!

    How does that pop-up thing work ?
    It sounds great but I've never seen it myself.
    I love that Goat pic too. Very nice, and very dead if it was real.

    2 shooters at a time and then when you are ready they start the cycle. There is about 8 targets (one doe which you don't shoot) and it pops up for about 15 seconds, you shoot and get ready for the next target. You shoot 5 targets per round (2 rounds for qualifying)...scoring is the same as regular 3D with 12,10,8,5,0. The 5 that pop up are random so you always have to be ready for the moving target to come out!

    So they have lever arms and electric motors that pop them up ?
    How do the mechanics actually work ?
    Foam targets are not light. It seems that there is a lot behind that to make those thing 'pop up'.
    It seems cool as heck though and I would love to try that some time.

    looks like one kid is shooting from the correct side of the bow... the other you need to work on the oldest is holding the bow with the wrong hand!!! What do you teach you're kids down there!)

    and put some bend in that elbow boy! He calls that a bend? HA!

    You go girls!!! Four of us girls at Carrollton, MO shot it last weekend. It was a blast!! I recognize Paul in one of your pics. He's the guy who travels around for the pop-up 3D. Keep having fun with it. By the way, CUTE kids!

    How it works...

    Ron et. all,

    When I designed the pop-up range for a large chain while in Florida years ago we used a pressurized air system that uses acutators to raise and lower the targets. Pressurized air is sent through the system to "pop" the target up. Not sure if they have advanced beyond that but it worked really well coz we could adjust not only the time they stayed up but also the entire speed of the whole cycle.

    Hey, good idea, that makes sense.
    I'd love to shoot one of those. It sounds like a ton of fun.

    RE: Shot Distance

    Closest was 10yds farthest was 25 yds.

    It was an indoor range so we had limited space to work with. Hardest thing was concealing air lines from rogue arrows so we layed down a thick layer of cedar on top of the lines.
