    Well, I shot Day 1 of the Wisconsin State Field Championship today. This is my first "real" field tournament.

    Wow, this is the ironman competition for archery. :eek: 3D is a piece of cake compared to this (as a far as number of shots).

    Day1: 28 field and 28 animal targets...140 arrows.
    Day2: 28 hunter targets (we shoot this tomorrow)

    I shot decent for me, 270 on first half and 264 on second. Second half, I set the sight wrong on the 65 yard target and didn't notice until I shot the 2nd arrow:doh:

    Shot 281 on the animals which is not too good in my opinion.
    I didn't gain any real points on the animal targets. Should have got more of these points.

    I should sleep like a rock tonight and then get up early and do it again. I think I have my sight marks a little better now. We will see tomorrow. Sure would like to break above 270 per half.

    If you haven't shot Field Archery, give it a try it will make you better no matter what flavor of archery you like to shoot.

    Update... I heard an amateur shot a 559 today. Dropped one arrow on the 27th of 28 targets. That's just plain insane.:Cry:

    I struggled a bit on Day 2 but still had a good time. Good people, great course, good food.:peace:

    The additional pressure of the tournament made for a rough day with the release. It seeed like I would be sitting in the bullseye and could not get the release to fire. I try hard not to punch the release and the result is sometimes I can't get it to fire at all.

    I need to go back to the back tension and stay there.:doh:

    Met a bunch of new people, weather was really good and we were done early on sunday.

    good shootin Chris! I have been thinking about setting up my old Hoyt Accutec for Field Round so I can shoot my clubs league next summer I know its far off but it does'nt hurt to start planning for it now. I should'nt have a problem shooting it with a bow that max's at 50# should I? You remember the one I'm talkin about its that big damn thing I shot indoor part of last year with:laugh:
