Just started going to IBO sanctioned events this year, previously just shot local shoots. Read all the IBO rules for advanced hunter class, made sure that my equipment was legal, bought new binos 8x, took a pin out of my sight, got a 12" stabilizer etc etc etc... Went to IBO sanctioned events and nobody seems to care about whether you are legal or not. Nobody has checked my arrows for weight, nobody has inspected my sight for 4 pins, measured stabilizer, checked my binos for markings. Not a single rule has been checked. I asked some other guys and they say that they have never seen a person checked or been checked in either IBO or ASA. At one shoot I was writing in were they ask for your bow weight, arrow weight and speed and the head guy told me not to worry about that. Has anyone ever been checked?? What is the purpose for all these rules if it is only enforced if someone files a complaint?
