Yes 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!!!!
