It depends on the location, around here in the local shoots for
3-d and 5 spot I’d say I’m above average not the best by any means but close behind. On the national level I’d be in the lower half of average to below average.
I said average, but it occurred to me to ask whether we should look at how well we shoot targets as opposed to live game. I shoot 270′s to 280′s on a 30 target 3D course, and I only shoot them in order to practice for hunting season. I can’t stand punching paper. I’ve also discovered that I can’t hit the turkey targets worth a darn. That’s why I still hunt them with a shotgun. And buck or doe doesn’t matter, I still turn into a quivering bowl of jello although I can usually work through it and make the shot. I’ve only lost one deer (kinda), and it was only because I had to leave (darn work!) and come back later. When I followed the blood trail to the end all I found was a gut pile and drag marks. So at least it didn’t go to waste.
It's not how far you shoot, but how close you get.
