Joined: 1/18/2009just started 3d shoots (i mean i have my own targets i practice on out to 80 yards) but started going to various ranges this past year with my hunting rig- 80lb monster with FMJ arrows and a single pin HHA
course i just shot last weekend was no range finder and binocs. shot the open class (out to 50 yds)- won it with a 272. pretty tough course. standing on rickety homemade platforms, shooting through trees (2ft windows on some), uphills and downhills.
lots of really good shooters on this forum though- i just might have to get a target rig….
i average around that 265 range-
Joined: 12/11/2009well i went and shot this weekend and i shot open trophy on sat with my prestige and it was a great day to shoot. i shot 310 in open trophy and i went today and shot hunter class in the rain with my reezen and shot 4 up. felt like that was pretty good in the rain.
Joined: 9/9/2004I’m lucky in that various sportsman’s clubs in my area have a 3D shoot every weekend. They even have it organized so that clubs that are close together take different weekends in order not to step on each others attendance. I don’t look at 3D shoots as competition, but as practice for hunting season, but some guys are super competitive about them, especially the IBO guys! I shoot bowhunter/release class and where the IBO guys shoot from compared to me is unbelievable! Every club is different as far as scoring. Some count the X ring as just 10, others a 10X (ties resolved by counting X’s), and others as 11. I generally just shoot for 8′s, and take the occasional 10 or 11 as a bonus. I used to shoot in the 260′s – 270′s. After a new string & cable, bow tuneup, and a new T handle thumb release, I’m shooting consistently in the mid to upper 280′s. Nice!It's not how far you shoot, but how close you get.
Joined: 3/25/2010I shoot local 3d clubs and asa shoots in hunter class with my reezen 7.0 at 60#. My average score from this summer is a 291 sometimes I do a little better but thats uselly an everday score for me. I just order a monster 7.0 and was wondering if anybody had an opion on how this bow would work for me as a 3d only bow.
Joined: 11/27/2008I shoot around 250 to 260 on 30 targets most count 5,8,10 and X rings as 11s! I shoot the hunter class!
Me and my buddy are usually the first ones there on 1 of 4 local club shoots and are the first ones out! I have gotten back and there are already 3 people on the books with scores over 300 so I do not believe I will ever get good enough win when these ghost shoot past us scoring over 300!!!!!!!!
The best I ever shot was a 288 out of 330 total and it was 10 degrees outside!
My daughter hunts when she has time and last fall she went to the last 3D shoot and shot a 270 from the youth stake out of 300. I got lucky and got a 273 man that was close!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Joined: 12/11/2009ugh shot today and shot 297. not to bad but not awful either. deff will not place top 3. the guy i shot with finished 6 up and i say he will be 1 or 2. it was a pretty tuf course.

Joined: 1/18/2007Averaged 242 on the last 2 shoots(shooting ASA rules with 24 targets this year so you can see all of the ones at an ASA tourn) I am shooting Open C this year which is 40 yds max. Only had 3 8′s last week, My goal is to shoot a round with all 10′s, and no 8′s
Joined: 3/14/2010went to a 3d shoot on sunday….. they never set the targets up the same it always a different course up here. we have 30 targets. when we go we have one rule dont tell anyone what you think the yardage is. we dont use rangefinders we go out for the practice and to have fun. i shot a 260 our yardages range from 10 – 40 yards. had alot of fun though

Shot another 242 on 24 targets-had 5 12′s but wasted them with 4 8′s I have got to work on keeping my concentration for the entire shoot.
X2 … every course is different, target layouts are different, number of targets are different …
… maybe keeping track of time spent behind the targets looking for arrows would be a better way to measure ‘average’
Joined: 5/25/2007Scored a personal best 215 in Men’s Trad this year. My average is around a 185ish though. Whole lotta 8′s.
