Joined: 4/16/2009First year in Bowhunter class, 267 score for today.
Shot 30 targets for the first time today. It was neat to see the ASA format for the first time.
After a local shoot in January, I decided to make my four pin sight a 20, 40, 50, 60 because the distance between 20 30 40 was a little small. I missed my 30 pin today because there were a lot of 28 – 38 yd shots, or at least it seemed like a lot Live and learn, and live up to the challenge, right?224 yesterday on 25 targets. I shoot in the bow hunter B class.God gives us only so much time on earth, don't waste it. Jesus blood washes sins away, just pray.
Joined: 1/24/2010I just shot yesterday and scored a 296 in the female hunter class with 30 targets. It is IBO scoring which is 11-x ring, 10 ring, 8 ring, and 5 for body. So if you X’d all 30 targets, a perfect score would be 330 following IBO scoring. Ties are decided by the number of 11-rings (x-rings). So if two people shoot 300, the one with the most x’s would win. My husband shot in the male hunter class yesterday as well. He shot a 306. All shoots we participate in have been IBO rules/sanctioned. For the 2010 rules go to http://www.ibo.net and click on ‘tournaments’ then click on ‘2010 rules’. It will give you all the information you need.
Joined: 2/24/2010my 1st time out I shot a 180 on 20 targets…and thats shooting in the most challenging class, b/c I have an adjustable sight…which I think is some bs, whats it matter if you have one adjustable or 7 fixed
Joined: 11/26/2008This is a good thread. I often wondered the same thing as well. I shoot hunter class and usually average between 270-290. I have a blast shootin 3-D and enjoy every time I get out. I am looking to start aking it a little more serious. I am thinking of purchasing another bow and a new site so I can shoot in a different class and see how I do. I would also like to see if I can improve on my score.
Joined: 4/17/2010I shoot a few different shoots each week, an indoor shoot that they count x’s average is 299-307….indoor local 3-d where X’s dont count verage score is 292….outdoor without x’s 290-294….outdoor with x’s…..296-303.
Joined: 4/30/2010Yes this is a good thread but there are many factors that one has to concider. First would be how the scores are calculated…meaning do you scored just 0,5,8,&10 or do X’s count as 11 or 12? When one is judging his/her score they need to ask themself…was it an easy coarse or was it a difficult one? Every 3D coarse should never be the same. With that being said, it’s very hard to determine how others shoot. I live for bowhunting and 3D tourns. So one should not really care/worry about how another’s score is. They are not the one pulling back your bow or shooting it for you….Don’t get me wrong…it’s nice knowing how others are scoring. It helps determine where you fit into your class as long as you take the factors in. I have shot many 3d tourns…some being rather easy coarses and some being score busters ( these are my fav. makes me really bare down). I’m no pro but do have some titles under my belt. Over the time I have learned a few tricks that might help some ppl new to 3D. When I go to a 3D tourn, I never try to beat the ppl that are there but rather beat the coarse itself (trying to get the perfect score). I never worry or think about how the ppl i’m shooting with are doing. I also always try to beat myself ( but first thinking what type of coarse it is…easy or difficult) and if I can do that than I know I’m improving. The last thing I’ve learned is rather a more difficult one to overcome…..if you make a bad shot do not beat yourself up over..forget about it!!!! but use it to your advantage…try to rem what distance you shot it for and if you come up to another target that appears to be rather close in distance…adjust your site accordingly. Oh my goodness, I almost forgot the most important thing….HAVE FUN!!!! Like I said I’m no pro and never pretend to be, these things are just what I have learned over many tourns. Maybe I’m just full of crap…I don’t know but these things have helped me out but might not help the next person cause everyone shoots different. May all your arrows fly true and straight!!!!

Joined: 7/2/2009Not sure, next time I’ll write down scores and maybe take a few photos
Joined: 11/17/2008It depends on who shows up that day…Shooting bows is a very mentally taxing thing.On the average 3-D course I am rt around a 305-310. THis year at the IBO indoor worlds I shot a 434 out of a possible 440. THe right “me” showed up that day and I shot well. Saturday I am shooting the IBO Keystone indoor shoot at the Eastern sportsman show in Harrisburg…We will see which “me” shows up. ha
