Went to my first 3-d shoot... It was awesome!
« on: August 19, 2012, 06:14:55 pm »
Went to my first 3-d shoot this weekend at Hawkeye bowmen. My dad and I shot every course 2 times and went on a fun edible plants walk... The yellow course I shot was my favorite and easily the most difficult.. Both it and the red course were awesome though. We only lost one arrow each after shooting over 150+ targets. The first pic shows one of my best shots of the weekend couldn't have been more centered in the center ring from about 23 yards through numerous saplings. Other two pics show me and my dad taking a shot... Overall an awesome shoot and we will be back next year.

What?!?!  No stickbow?    >:D

Sounds like you had fun.
Guns have triggers. Bicycles have wheels. Trees and bows have wooden limbs.

...and them funny looking arrows too!  :o
 3D shoots are lots of fun and sure do help to get ready for hunting season.

because you guys are using FG bow, etc, I'm moving this to "Around the Campfire".

No backdrop on a lot of targets so losing an arrow or two is pretty good.I bring a few blunts along too.Get those compound guys to shoot at targets 75 to 80 yards......LOL.Funny when you start doing that with them they all of a sudden star having fun too instead of being soooooo serious.

Jon that is the best practice you can get.
Only when the last tree has died and the last river has been poisoned and the last fish has been caught will we realize we cannot eat money.

I love to stump shoot with blunts also, but I wouldn't be to happy if I caught you shooting blunts in our targets.We have some that cost $1,800.00 so for me it is just a respect thing to not try and tear them up when I go other places.  :) Matter fact Hawkeye just bought 40 same as new targets from us over the last 2 years,
about $17,000.00 worth ordered new,lots of folks don't realize that. :)

I've made it out to few 3-D shoots and always have a blast, but we always had to keep score. In Oct. I'm going to try and make it out to the Carolina Traditional Archers shoot in Maiden NC. I hear it is a ton of fun. Glad you had a good time.
