    Well first, Welcome to the site. Second what style of tournaments are you interested in trying? 3d tourneys are alot diferent based on what sanction is in your area. ASA has a Novice class. Hunter setup w/ max 12" stabilizer and no magnification on site. Plus cannot be a moveable site. 280 fps rule. Max 30yard targets. IBO sanction you'll have to go to there site for rules and regs. Since I dont shoot IBO. Any more questions let me know.

    :wave: glad ta have ya.

    there is a ton of archery clubs that yyou can go to and shoot there 3d shoots and only have ta pay for tha shoot.
    Usally around $15.

    You will need the obvious.....bow, arrows ,some type quiver ,tab or release,pen for keeping score if tha duty falls to you.

    Now for the options


    Binoculors, water bottle holder, folding chair, larger plastic bags if rains for pocho, good pair of boots recommended, hat for sun.

    Tell tha fellars tha you are new and you need some assitasnce with this stuff and you wil be glad ta see how much advice you will get to help ya be a good shooter. GO FOR IT!!!!!!!
