Yesterday was allot of fun. I met a bunch of folks who love archery also, I did not realize there were so many people who enjoy it as much as I do! I did a 3-D event, I shot 224 on 25 targets. I was having a really great shoot, but started getting tired toward the end, and 2 of my final shots I shot only 5s on. I had allot of 10's and 3 12's. and several 8's. This was my 4th 3-D event, I paid 15.00 to do the shoot. To get in on the competetion shoot, it was $35 so I just did the fun shoot for 15.00. I was very pleased with my shots. I hit another 12 ring, but it only counted as a 10 because some lanes were upper and some were center and some were lower. So I hit 4 12s in all, but 3 counted as 12. It was in the woods in Alabama, and some of the lanes were really interesting. One was a camp site with a tent, and a man in a lounge chair( a dumby stuffed man) and a fake campfire with a rotercy with a pig on it upside down, to shoot at, so the rings were not where you would expect, Several lanes were shooting over deep valleys, and one was a leapard on a slanted log. One hard shot was a turkey, and the 12 ring was in his bottom, like dead center , the turkeys exit hole, you know what Im saying, well, I hit below it and got a 5 on that target, the turkey was facing away. It was so much fun, seriously, go do a 3D soon! I drew a prize when it was over, I drew a new Mathews hat. I was happy with that, but wish I would have drew a bow. They had a few bows they gave away, and over 200 venders and businesses supplied prizes. It was catered by Tinkers BBQ , and I really enjoyed the shoot! I am going to the R-100 on May 1st and 2nd, in Wetumpka, Alabama with my wife. Well have a good day, and go do some 3-Ds, they are so much fun, and I am better this year than last year, which really makes me happy. Archery relieves stress, and builds confidence, but its not free. You have to invest time practicing, frequently, and on a steady basis! Several of the lanes were up hill and down hill and shooting between trees. It was challenging. One lane was shooting out of a tree stand up on a hill but low to the ground, shooting at a deer or a bear target down below, across a small valley. Every lane was really well thought out! It was the best shoot I have ever been to, out of the 4 in all. It was put on by Bow Hunters of Alabama.

I haven't done one before. I've stayed away from events for some odd reason or two. After reading your fun time makes want to try it though.
